Let's get controversial!
iTunes is massively popular and works just fine for most people. It allows you to get up and running with computer audio pretty quickly and easily, allowing ripping of CDs, basic organisational functions and, of course, listening to your music.

This release contains a nice enhancement; the album overview (and other pages) are now drawn in a "fluid" style. This means the more you widen the page, the more that is accommodated. Before, bliss would always show four albums on each row of the album overview. If you have a wider browser this can now grow and grow!

I normally espouse investing in your music library for long term gain. Whether that's installing high resolution cover art, ripping to lossless or making sure you get your metadata straight, these efforts, while not without their own challenges, can save you time in the long run.
Just lately I've been covering lots of different topics on the blog: general music library management topics, bliss tutorials, upcoming features and so on. I thought it was time to rekindle the old arguments underlying a lot of the early posts on the blog; those relating to using rules to organize your music collection.

bliss was originally conceived as a fully automatic music library organiser. It used rules to assess and fix elements of your music library in an automatic way, or to take prompts from you, the music library curator, as to the best way to fix non-compliance. Examples of these would be incorrectly sized artwork, track numbers of the incorrect length, genre assignments from unwanted, overly specific genres and so on.
