Standard features such as accessing audio lyrics directly through the GUI to fetching album related information from online sources, Listen is a pretty cool little app.
Few of the main features...
*. Listen to Shoucast web radio.
*. Podcast support.
*. Large album management.
*. Find Wikipedia information for Artists/Albums, etc.
*. As said, for a unique feature of its own (maybe few other have it...), it can automatically fetch your current playlist related song information from last.fm and can create a playlist of its own (including your most favorite ones) as well.
*. As said, this is written using Python rather than GTK or Qt tool-kits, so... quite "fair" for both Gnome and KDE without a doubt :).
*. 10 Band software equalizer.
*. Burn Audio CDs with Brasero (if installed in your GNU/Linux PC-Laptop).
*. Sync with iPad... etc.
