Staff review

Feeling mello yellow?

Nice style to this skin. The compact mode is a nice addition.


NIIIIIICE Design - Nuff said. - April 1, 2005 by Jeffrey Loper

ok - ok - March 21, 2005 by ernesto 007

Pretty Good But.... - 5 Stars for sleek design -1 Star for the weird font: can barely read +1 Star cause i only use Winamp in compact mode so the font doesn't matter. :) - October 26, 2004 by Justin from TX

Flash Text - Very good skin, good style and Layout. But as the rest say the Flash text MUST be in a other front! Da king sting - October 20, 2004 by Da_King Sting

Eh.... - Not my favorite skin ever, but the color schemes are nice, and I really like the compact mode. The guy that said the font was hard to read was right. Overall, I like it. - March 6, 2004 by courtney white

Love It - Very Clean Looking, and very easy to use once you find your way around the first time. Yellow is the coolest :-p Nice job. - January 12, 2004 by Roger Crain

eh!? - i dont know, the font is hard to read.. the 't's looks like 'L's so when the word "little' came up, it pretty much looked like "IIIIIe" - October 5, 2003 by kko n

nice - this is a very good skin simple, bright, and quite easy to use so all up a pretty good skin good job :) - August 13, 2003 by Mark Zippa

nice work Robinson Crusue... - this skin has got everything - it's simple, it's easy to use, the colors are funny - July 25, 2003 by Il cino

ive seen better - yellow is annoying, just so you know. gladly, there are other colors to choose from, and...holy crap, are those bullet holes?!?! - July 8, 2003 by mark siegel

not bad - The color choices are cool and the design looks really good. The volume knob is a bit of a pain to control. Yep, yep, not bad at all. - May 5, 2003 by sophie henry

Almost There... - I like the interface and the fact that it's easy to use......but your color schemes really need help. And I'm sorry but your annimations were nothing to remember. I don't think I am going to keep it, but I will be waiting for the next version. ~ Just a Chic ~ - February 5, 2003 by Sara Campos

sucked - This skin sucked. No offense to the maker its a good design, but it doesn't let you change skins and it made me have to uninstall and reinstall winamp so that an error mesage would go away. - January 1, 2003 by Jonathan Hoban

Great - good work ..good color's complete.. - December 27, 2002 by grand bkk

GREAT SKIN - this is a great skin, but there may be some things that could be revised..... - November 22, 2002 by Alex Chan

w00t - By far the best w3 skin I've seen yet. Honestly I'm dissapointed with most of the w3 skins, but Chronabie is awesome. Everything is there and self-explanitory. Mad props to the author and thanks!!!!! - November 15, 2002 by Brian Gadd

At last - The problem with most of the stylish skins is that they are not quiet usable. With its 'Chronabie' skin D Robinson did it: at last Winamp 3 users have a stylish and handy skin. - October 28, 2002 by me you

just what i needed. - just what i needed. - October 26, 2002 by Liam Morley

Great skin but seems i have some bug - I don't know if it's just me of if it's the skin because whenever i right the system tray icon it doesnt have the menu...also the add del sel sort buttons don't seem to work on the playlist.. anyone else having these problems? Overall it's a very nice skin though :) - October 14, 2002 by patrick su

cool - this is a very cool skin with a cool tekst type this one wont disapoint u "Boem boem bam slam BAM as the ghetto blasta bangs" - October 8, 2002 by michael j

Surprisingly nice - At first it seemed like your average skin... but this one is a keeper! It is delightful and the font is awesome! - October 6, 2002 by Hunter Tammaro

Color - The text used is pretty sweet and the amount of color themes is pretty high. The burgandy theme kind of sucks though, can't read anything. Main complaint is that the buttons don't change really. So if you turn the EQ on or off, for example, there isn't any change in the button. And whats up with the wacky band of color across the top of it??? - September 26, 2002 by Another Guy

Nice Skin - Only thing that bothers me is that you can't just double click to windowshade...maybe something to add to the next version. - September 23, 2002 by K Wong

Creative and thoughtful - I appreciate the little things, things most people don't think of, like putting volume in the play list editor with the buttons too. Thanks man - September 22, 2002 by Jay Feruz

NUMBER ONE - If there were a winamp skinn award, then this skinn deserve to amonge the very best. As far as I have seen this one rules!!! NICE DESIGN... god functionality and god color costumizations... A+ - September 21, 2002 by Janne Petkovski

You have to - You gotta download this one. You won't regret it - September 21, 2002 by Desmond Hoorn

AWESOME!!!!! - oh god, this is GREAT!!!!!! not only is this skin easy to use and figure out where everything FINALLY has PURPLE!!!!!!!!! (and a decent shade of purple too, i might add!) the only prob i found was that i couldn't find the thinger...but i prolly will later:) - September 16, 2002 by Lissa Miller

slick - many WA3 skins so far seem lacking real useability overall. This one isn't one of those! it has everything and I really like the colours. Same skin in different clours would be excellent!!! {IDEA!!!} Take not other skinners, this one is very nice... 6 stars is not enough. - September 15, 2002 by Ken Williams

Hello, playlist controls. - This is the only wa3 skin I've seen that has (semi)complete controls implemented in the playlist. Missing are toggles for shuffle, repeat, and the rest. For the controls alone it gets 5 stars. I can't BELIEVE no one has commented on this. Finally I can use winamp with only one window. Anyway, the bullet holes were not a good decision, and overall the graphics could use some polishing. 20 colors also makes this my permanent choice of skin. The main contol window is moot (thank god) since there are controls in the playlist. Thank you!!! - September 13, 2002 by bleh drosia

Very nice but lacking a feature i like.. - that feature, of course, is a shuffle toggle on the main window. If it's there I really can't find it. I like the thinger small but on the main window like that - thats one thing i didnt like about ocrana is that its thinger you must open. I like the wide range of color schemes, even though only two really strike my fancy (default sucks or whatever it was, and grunge). Nice neutral colors, they are. Winshade is very nice, song title readable, etc. I like the font used for time remaining and track title. well thought-out on a hole, though i too can't figure out why there are bullet holes in it :) - September 10, 2002 by Jon P

It's yellow! - You can't go wrong with yellow. Well, I suppose you can, but Chronabie doesn't. Stylish, smooth, and very efficiently laid out, Chronabie is certainly one of the best Winamp skins around. Some buttons are hard to find, though, and the font can become annoying after a while. - September 10, 2002 by Jeff Cook

Amazing skin - The hgih number of color schemes makes it easy to customize to fit your desktop. It's compact mode is also well..."compact". Good skin. - September 10, 2002 by Jc Maco

99 - 44 65 hut hut - September 8, 2002 by Johnny Douhhget

Can't Complain - It's really nice, but not my favorite. Still though, it should definately be on everyone's download list. - September 7, 2002 by Mark Olaveson

Simple, Colorful - I have downloaded every skin for Winamp3 so far that has struck my interest, but I use this one faithfully. It is simple and has several colors to from which to choose. It doesn't take up much space or resources. Thanks D Robinson! - September 7, 2002 by Heather Corey

Aw-som - This has to be the best skin i seen for winamp 3, I can see all the buttons to a point i can actually figure them out, the colors are awsom and there are so many of them, so if you get tired of it just get another color. Mr. Robinson keep it up I look forward to more of your skins. - September 6, 2002 by Tyler W.

superb! - but why the bullet wholes (or whatever they are) the thinger is a bit small though - September 6, 2002 by sputter supper

Innovative new look & feel but... - Hiya, I love the innovative look & feel; it's very distinctive. I would rate this a five stars, but for a couple of small nits: 1. When the skin is applied to an already-running Winamp, the Playlist Editor shows up smack on top of the main control window. I only happen to see the main control window when I was playing around with re-sizing & moving the Playlist Editor window. 2. When positioning the windows, there is some misalignment of the windows' border: the "hysteresis" ("stickiness" when the windows' edges are near to each otehr) happens at the wrong place causing the windows' edges to overlap. See: 3. In the Playlist Editor window, the sliding control at the bottom, next to the "ML" music library toggle button, does not have a tool tip. -- Nicole Asahi \ [email protected] \ - September 5, 2002 by Nicole Asahi

Amazing - This skin is fresh , stylish and very easy to use. What else could you want. Easily the best skin out!!! - September 5, 2002 by Nicholas Hogan

Zimzalabim - Five stars for esthetics, but WinXP thinx it sux. Encounter crash upon closing down the application. Although nice I cannot use it. Perhaps the Winamp tech support (guys?) can patch this is WA3.01. - September 4, 2002 by shan moores

One Of The Bests - Your skin is excelent but have a problem that some skins have ,just 6 or 7,in windows xp when you close winamp with this skin ,winamp blocks,see whats happening - September 3, 2002 by Miguel Veiga

Sick like the flu! - the best winamp3 skin. Great buttons, even great in shade mode! looks 100x better when you change the color theme to 'carribean sea'! takes up the perfect amount of space! It even has bullet holes! - September 3, 2002 by gordon cumming

WOW! - Great job. The best skin I've seen so far. It's great having the EQ and the Thinger in the main window. - September 2, 2002 by Justin Jacobs

Facundo Albin: - The reason why you can't install it because there is a bug with the direct save/load system if you are using IE (Mozilla has too much sense to implement something so annoying). Try right-clicking ``save as'', saving it to your /winam3/skins directory, then loading it from the preferences screen. Aside from that the skin is alright. - September 2, 2002 by James West

review - I think it's a cool skin ,futuristic with a shoking colour. - September 1, 2002 by mariano conde

Good sh*t! - This is the best Winamp 3 skin I've seen so far.. good work - August 31, 2002 by Steve Williams

Very Nice but no Playlist Shade - The only thing lacking in this skin is the ability to shade or compact the playlist... I long for a skin that lets you shade it again... - August 31, 2002 by Dave Giesler

Essential for new users - Perfect Perfect Perfect! I had trouble navigating around the default and other winamp3 skins, until i tried this sleek and retro skin! Perfect interface, perfect theme, Perfect Perfect Perfect! - August 31, 2002 by Darrell Pacania

[email protected] - I dont think you will find a better skin than this. Everything is so user friendly and the colours and fonts are sound. NICE ONE. Top marks 5 stars - August 31, 2002 by daniel; pawlett

Excellent Work - It's definitely one of my favorite skins. It looks so clean and nice. There're themes for everyone and every taste. - August 29, 2002 by Carlos Carranza

The best ever!!! - Great idea to include the thinger in the main amp. Really awesome...that's the first skin I rated 5. P.S. That would be a 6 on 5 if you include the playlist in the main amp too. - August 28, 2002 by Jean-Francois Barbier

Nice - A very nice skin. I really like the yellowish color of it. - August 28, 2002 by aris lianas

Wast of memory - What a crap skin, i had the hardist time useing this skin, i needs to be worked on! 2 stars for the color. - August 26, 2002 by Yakoff gUton

Very good Design - ok this this a tite design. i gave you a five for it. yello is aight... but i think a blue is betta... tite skin tho... 5 stars - August 26, 2002 by Kenneth Trinh

Nice - Very nice looking skin. The only problem I have with it is the clunky volume control. - August 26, 2002 by Craig Daniels

GREAT! - Wonderful man.Perfect My persoal favorite.Buttons are eZ to click on every thing is visible couldn't have made it better myself. - August 25, 2002 by Eric Martinez

Sweet! - One of my absolute favorites. I appreciate the completeness of the customization. It's really easy to use. And the rainbow of themes is above and beyond the call of duty ! - August 24, 2002 by c settles

BEST SKIN EVER MADE! - 5/5 its just awesome! i love how its easy to find everything not like those complex ones with tiny text. VERY NICE JOB - August 23, 2002 by Lazlo Lazlo

Love the colours :) - Very very nice! - August 23, 2002 by Kathy Stewart

To cool - This is a cool cool skin, by far the coolest skin I've seen here. - August 22, 2002 by Lars Gottlieb

One of the best - Maybe I'm too oldschool for some of these new Winamp 3 skins, but this is by far one of the best skins available so far. Very clean design, all windows skinned, lots of color themes. Plus, very easy to use. Whodathunkit... - August 22, 2002 by David Caddock

CraZy sKiN - I just dl'd this skin and its f*cking amazing. All the other ones are so complex and confusing and this one is very srtaightforward, and the graphics adn fonts are done sooooo well! You should DEF get this skin - August 21, 2002 by eliot walden

whoa. - beeeeyuuuutiful! - August 21, 2002 by c s

nearly w00t!! - yeah this skin is pretty good. its got some bugs with the alpha mode. but the color settings and just the generally cool look to it make up for that slight flaw. - August 21, 2002 by Ben Dean

Me - Very functional and lots of colorthemes Great skin - August 20, 2002 by Ricardo Fernandes de Abreu

Like it in "Defaults are ugly" color - It's fine, but not yet perfect. When does the new "zeus anoxia" come out from Jesper Bentzen!? - August 19, 2002 by Wouter Snippe

Close, but no cigar - It's good, but not great. I couldnt find the volume control at first, couldnt load a playlist right away, but eventually after my eyes got used to the yellow, I figured it all out - August 19, 2002 by Tanner Gregory

Eye Cizandy!! - Well, I don't like the new style skins where they are small and jumbled and you have no idea what to click on. This skin takes the old look to a new level. Cool fonts, easy interface, awesome color, great look! This is a must download!!! - August 17, 2002 by Tony Darveaux

Mmm...tasty. - Comes in many different flavors. Highly recommended. Great job, D. Robinson. - August 17, 2002 by James Byrnes

Perfect - For now, it's the best skin for winamp 3, no bugs, sharp, beautiful.. it's great - August 17, 2002 by Dexter Lab

Now we're talkin! - Finally, some of the benefits of version 3.0 are realized! Way cool features are the integrated EQ, and the ability to change the "Color Themes"! Don't like the color? Change it! Also simple in design, easy to read and use,it's a keeper! - August 17, 2002 by Crunchy Frog

COOL! - TOTALY AWESOME!!!ITS ORANGY!!!!ITS GREAT!!!ORANGE IS SOOOOO GREAT>>>>ITS ASSOCIATED WITH 123friends ONLINE.....So visit - August 16, 2002 by Mohan Pillai

I like it. - Well, I really like this skin with it's different color schemes and so on, but I'm a more... I want small skins, this is way to big for me to use *even in compact mode* As I said, a really great skin. It's getting 5 Stars anyway, because it is great, it's just not my type of skin, so I'm not using it. :) - August 16, 2002 by Marcus Engstrom

Excellent - This has to be my favorite skin. everything is so organized its just awesome. i especially like the font. Good Work! - August 16, 2002 by Jason Thurston

Huge, in a compact sort of way. - I really like this skin, the compact mode is great because it fits well, but if you need more options, just open it up into regular mode, which is awesome too. The many color modes let you customize it to match your desktop or whatever. Great skin... - August 15, 2002 by Tristan Gordon

Clean skin - One of the better new WA3 skin. Some of the other skin have nicer graphic or theme but you CAN'T FIND ANY BUTTEN on them. If you haven't download this one download it now it a keeper. later KD - August 15, 2002 by Kellory Dweomer

Easily the Best - This is easily one of the best skins I have ever come across. The buttons are plaing and easy to see and you don't have to guess what they are. The color scheme is awesome and the skin just looks great. Also, the way he/she did the volume dial is extremely awesome. - August 15, 2002 by Charles Sprayberry

me like it! - I like it... nice, stylish, simple -- straight to the point, I love the minimized version. - August 14, 2002 by Gerard Dantel

loving the pretty in pink look :D - I absolutely love this skin! it is something for someone who has a tendancy for the need to change colors.. not styles... the chrome edges are wicked cool, it's absolutely the best skin I have ever had so far.. Dunno what color I will pick tommorow *grins* but it sure as hell works for me that is for sure :D totally the bomb. thanks for the fabulous skin! I can't wait to see if there could be an expansion of colors, or even the oppertunity to change the colors of the words :D just an idea or so :) - August 13, 2002 by Wendi Villasana

BEST SKIN! - RETRO! this skin is so cool. I love the yellow and chrome. Easy to use, simple and the fonts are great.Also has a TON of colour schemes to suit your mood. Download now! - August 13, 2002 by Peter Parker

not too shabby - ok.. this skin looks nice and has a ton of color options and all.. but for some reason I get a color glitch at the top of the main window that is really annoying... it stops if I pick "Grunge" or "Default Skins are Ugly" but that's the only times... other than that... great skin!! - August 13, 2002 by Josh Peters

Good one! - Great skin! Looks good and is easy to use. You can find all the necessary tools with ease. And good color choices, too. - August 13, 2002 by Johannes Leino

nice dsign,too bright - i thas a really cool design but if you chandged the color or gave it a color pack it would be the best skin of all time - August 13, 2002 by Ian Maxon

sigh.. - Um Ian, this skin DOES have color schemes. Maybe you didn't notice everyone else talking about them either. God I'm getting sick of all the moron reviewers... - August 13, 2002 by Cheeky Boy

Easy and nice to look at - I like this one. Don't let Chronabie's simplicity fool you, because this is a really great looking skin. The fonts used in it are very cool, the colors are attractive and it's easy and fun to work with. Well done! - August 13, 2002 by Andre Morais

Nice skin, but... - (Technical "but")...there seems to be a tiny glitch. When I have Desktop Alpha on (which rocks my world BTW) there's a strange flashing bar that goes across the top of the main player window. - August 12, 2002 by Ryan Martinez

Hmmm... - There must be a reason that this skin exist because its pretty ugly. but there is something about it that makes it hard to resist, maybe it would look better in blue and gray. - August 12, 2002 by NiNiP Aktas

color schemes - The color schemes of this skin took my heart forever. I love all of them. The skin is very understandable. As I put it on my WA3, I found all the buttons. - August 12, 2002 by Nikolay Dobrev

Excelent Skin - So far out of all the new skin releases, this is my favorite. Some of the other skins look great, but are to "busy." This skin is very functional and inludes A TON of color themes to match any desktop. Curvy, simplistic, sexy, and many color themes. Everything I could want from a skin. (Also try this in WindowShade mode) - August 12, 2002 by Jonathan Lorenz

w00t!!! - this is one awesome looking skin. give it a try, good layout, colors, and everything else. - August 12, 2002 by dave lowe

Outstanding Skin!! - Looks great in compact and full size modes, and unlike many of the first winamp3 skins, it is readable and has tooltips. Many great color schemes, although the font color does not change, so the darker colors render it unreadable. Also, the large font is somewhat difficult to read and scrolls too slowly. Overall, this is my favorite skin so far. Kudos!! - August 12, 2002 by Dave Greenwood

Nice!! - I love this skin! It deseves 5 stars. Nice Job, Keep up the great work! - August 11, 2002 by Mike P.

it's cooooL!!!! - THE BEST SUPER SKIN I'VE EVER SEEN!!! - August 11, 2002 by joao silva

neat - neat! - August 11, 2002 by edward marcel

good - good - August 10, 2002 by zhao zilong

But still a error - Beautiful face,I love it!!! but a error reported when i quit winamp,and all setting lost... use w2k + sp3 - August 10, 2002 by Windirt Young

winamp 3 sucks - WinAmp3 uses too much memory, too much processor power, too much screen, too much everything. WinAmp 2.x was a lot better... now im back to using Windows Media Player 8 - August 10, 2002 by Steven Woolard

Shweet - Whatever I think about the WA3 I can put aside. This is a great skin. - August 10, 2002 by Ryan Sheppard

Simply The Best - This has to be the best skin I have ever seen. Sharp, clean and love the use of yellow and silver. - August 10, 2002 by Pierce K

Nice Skin, Too Power Hungry - The design of this skin is really nice, but I gotta tell ya: I have a Pentium 3-M @ 1.2 GHZ with 512 MB of RAM and if I try to run another app while I'm running this skin, my computer gets sluggish. It is just too power hungry. - August 10, 2002 by Jeff Champion

Best one yet - With its configurable color schemes, this skin takes the cake for its sleekness and coolness. All other available skins are bulky and impractical. Definitely is a 5-starer! :) - August 9, 2002 by Whip Lash

Por ahora uno de los mejores - Uno de los mas bonitos y mas comodos, sobre todo comodo, lo tienes todo accesible. - August 9, 2002 by Richard notelodice

Celebrate! - Man, I love this skin! Tons of great colour schemes for it, and a great layout with the EQ in the main window. Text could be improved in the main window, but it's otherwise great. And kudos to the Nullsoft team for making a great product! - August 9, 2002 by Jonathan Moscardini

Wow! - One of the best ever! Impressive work. - August 9, 2002 by Emil Butiri

Great - You did a great job with this skin......i like it and im goin to recommend it to all my friends. Thanks!!!!! - August 9, 2002 by DJQ Chris

Awesome!!! - Just grabbed this HOOooooTTT Skin! I really didn't like the colors so went into Preferences and noticed there are TONS of color schemes for this SKIN :)!!! Good job d00d! - August 9, 2002 by Cyb3r d00d

great - ok, i love the skin, very clean and nice, but when you have a darker custom skin, you cant see the "spectrom aniliser" thing.. you could possibly make it lighter or something, i dont really know, but good job on the skin! - August 8, 2002 by travis hornung

Nice - Windowshade mode is great, so are all the colour schemes :). Could do with a playlist Windowshade too though. - August 8, 2002 by Russ Garrett

WTF - This skin is nothing special, but it is very redible, but I dont think theres anything "Awesome" about it! - August 8, 2002 by Jorge Pazos

Sweeeeet!!! - this is one of the best winamp3 skins ive seen yet...!!! gREAT WORK!!! - August 8, 2002 by John Hurley

a dud - a can't install that,explain that and i'll change my mind,Leran well,before doing somethin,Thanks,Bye, facu's - August 8, 2002 by Facundo Albin

Wonderful - This is my personal favorite. The window shade (or mini) mode has all the features I want (big play/pause button, volume, song title) and looks cool too. It has 20 or so colors to pick from, so don't let the yellow scare ya! Good job! - August 8, 2002 by Diana Smith

Wow!!! - This thing really kicks some ass! It's not only very stylish, it's also very clean and easy to use! This thing should be included in the Install-package of Winamp3.1 !! think about it!... Great work - August 8, 2002 by Chris Uldack

Liking it. - Ignore the people who can't figure out how to install a simple skin, this thing works great if you like something that can work under regular or compact size. Clean interface any way you look at it. - August 8, 2002 by Brian Crombie
