Good looking skin, also can be used by people who need the buttons. They are included free of charge.


nice@c0ol skin....agree for other color option,it could be more it....u - December 30, 2010 by [email protected]

This is by far my favorite skin. Clean sexy, sleek. I have been looking for something like this a while, excellent job. Any possibility of other colors like red, black and white, etc. would make this already perfect skin even better. Thanks for the hard work and time. - October 12, 2010 by [email protected]

I love it, it looks elegant and is simple to use unlike some of the other skins i have downloaded :) - June 20, 2010 by [email protected]


wow - i love this skin it's wounderful to watch and very easy to use, i love it. - July 20, 2009 by andi_handi__91

Beauty - This is a very original piece of work. Beautiful to look at, easy on the eyes. I agree with others that other color options would be really nice.I dont use any countdown timers and lack of that functionality is not a problem. Great job! - March 24, 2009 by John Durrett

Awesome, smooth interface! - This is great; simple, sleek, does its job and looks great. - December 1, 2008 by Michael Ludwig

The Best - WoW, I`m never gonna change my winamp skin... Barracuda rules... I gave it 4.5 couse it has a litle volume bug... - November 30, 2008 by Martin Boric

Deja pruebo - Da buena impresion pero apenas lo voy a probar, si deberas m sorprende o m indigna pues aki estare de regreso, si solo estoy satisfecho pues no regresare.! - October 26, 2008 by water polem

Excellent Work !! - Coolest Among All, Beautiful , Eye-catching....Wonderful. - September 20, 2008 by Mehul Lakhani

Very good Looking - This is quite a nice looking skin, really stuck out for me. I was a little worried by the description of the purpose is not to use the function keys on the program, but it does have all the buttons they are just hidden a little. Works very well an looks very good. - August 23, 2008 by Nazakat Hussain

kinda simple, i like it - it pretty good ,it consists of only the buttons you would use(hideable) , the only thing wrong with it is it doesn't come in different colors - August 22, 2008 by fabian gonz

SWEET!!! - dude! sweet skin...awesome! - August 11, 2008 by Zykco Soundtrip

Master - T mt bom mesmo..E eu tenho o fundo do ecr preto, Fica Brutal..Fica bem E continua.. - February 28, 2008 by Ivo Monteiro

awesomesauce - you should add in the option of different colors.. then it'd be perfect! : - January 20, 2008 by Daniel Rehak

Gorgeous - Very beautiful and functional skin - if you want to use buttins they are available off the main window in the middle off the top 'bar' not that noticeable. - December 27, 2007 by stephen brown

best ever - havent seen a stylish, easy to use, awesome looking skin .. until now!!congratulations!! - December 21, 2007 by ro dus

Very cool - Very cool skin, simpe and intuitive. - December 19, 2007 by Dr.Luiji Luigi

touch screen version - the first thing i thought when i saw this was its like a touch screen version. if ipods and mp3s have touch screen,well this is exsctly what a winamp skin touch screen look like. :D I downloaded it and its a beauty! - December 10, 2007 by BoA Vixen

totally blue cool! - this skin just leaves me cold with its lack of user-friendly detail. very much the eye-candy, but operating details are too small to be easily seen, much less used! - October 23, 2007 by samuel hardy

amazing! - i love this skin but it doesnt work on 5.5? can you make for 5.5? - October 20, 2007 by Yodel moocow

Dats Hawt!! - looks good, runns good , easy format , great skinn gj - October 2, 2007 by shen calbar

cute color - smart n attractive - September 30, 2007 by jinnou jinnou

Thinking outside the box - Wonderful skin that does not follow the typical orthodox design. Cudo's to the artist!Would have gotten a full 5/5 if not for a few minor, yet annoying bugs.a) Advanced-Controls Trigger does not stay open upon winamp load.b) When radio station info windows are loaded, there's no way to close themHoping that a future update is in the works as this skin is wonderful!a__k - September 19, 2007 by cyfrus R

Great design. Bad functionality. - This is just beautiful. It's like no other.But it has two very annoying things in it.-you can't switch to remaining time-and the worse is that you can't keep your control buttons after turning the program off and on.Mainly the second problem will stop me from using this skin and I'm very sorry about that. - September 15, 2007 by Aleksandar Vagalinski

aa - aa - September 9, 2007 by koray pn

Excellent - Wow this is an amazing skin, thank you for submitting it, i did not even bother looking any further after seeing this one, it is great thanks. - August 31, 2007 by Lee co

hello - it\'s the best one :) - August 30, 2007 by Simonas mizaras

Amazing skin - This is one of the best skins on Winamp, it is the "Cadillac of skins" is so clean and sharp. Theirs no doubt in my mind that this is the best skin on Winamp. Not only does it look friggen sexy it works i haven't had a problem with this skin since i downloaded it. I challenge someone to show me a better looking skin, if you think you know one tell me about it. - August 29, 2007 by Allen Perzylo

Very Koolzz - Like It A LOT!! - August 1, 2007 by Laura Reed

Simple, Classy - I registered just to impart my accolades on this skin. I've looked through many over the years. As others have said, it is, "just perfect". Fantastic job. - July 16, 2007 by craig Monroe

Best skin ever! - I love this skin, nothing more to say on that!Only two little things id like to have improved.1.track time in countdown mode (i like to know how long the song is remaining)2.would be nice if the track status bar was better to see and use, sometimes i cant "find" it correctly.But a big thank you for this skin!As i said, it is my favorite one! - June 22, 2007 by Blotto Drescher

Just Too Good! - Beautiful as well as clean. Great looks. What more could you ask for? - June 16, 2007 by Rahul Batra

cool - this skin is hot ^_^ - June 14, 2007 by Elisa Polanco

Fantastic skin!!! - Wow, what a fantastic skin! I really like the animation and the blue gradient!Best skin ever used! - May 28, 2007 by Gunnar Fr0fl

Great - Your skin is great. The only thing, a few windows can't be closed like when winamp report you an upgrade, this windows can't be closed. I suppose other windows have the same problem - May 20, 2007 by LAROUE Jean-Bernard

My dream *____* - Perfect. Just perfect. Exactly what I\'ve always needed. - March 29, 2007 by Yoghurt Yoghurtov

Sleek - Nice skin but there are no colour themes which is abit disappointing, goes well if you have a dark back drop as a desktop wallpaper - March 7, 2007 by Nick Zammit

Got It Goin on - Been Searching Through Skins All Night, This Is The One For Me! The Color Blue Does It For Me, No Flash Buttons, Just Straight To The Point, Prev-Stop-Pause-Play etc.... Or U Can Even Hide Them For A More Flashy View! Buttons And Display Is Easy To Read, And Vis And Vid Windows Are Nice And Plain And Display What They Need To!! A+ Skin! - March 6, 2007 by Greg Tartaglia

Slick, very slick. - Has to be one of my Fav skins to date. Would like to see some changes though. 1. Colour themes 2. Control buttons to stay open when I have selected them to be viewable 3. Volume slider to be more contrasted, it kinda dissapears. 4. Spectrum Analyser to be changable. Tarrith - March 3, 2007 by Tarrith DoUrden

Absolutely Gorgeous - F*ckin A - this skin rules I love everything about it the anims the compact nature the scroll wheel based volume want some more colours and is there some way to alternately highlight entries in the media library like iTunes does ... makes it alot easier to read ;D Awesome skin, every skinner should look to you as god - February 25, 2007 by Karl Randall

EXCELLENT skin. - By far the most professional and sleek interface design of any Winamp skin. Should be more like this. - February 18, 2007 by Outpatient oeyec_com

good job - awesome simply awesome - February 8, 2007 by Mike Wicherski

himesh - cool - January 23, 2007 by vickey agarwal

:) - Man u are the best...but i know u know that allredy :)) U created the best (perfect for me ) skin ever. I don't think anyone ca make a better one..only u may be :))) Want to congratulate u and to wish u good luck with the future works. My besr regards my friend. GutaCristian Romania ;) - January 23, 2007 by guta cristian

Most Awesome - This skin is totally what I have been looking for. This is the most gorgeous skin that I have ever seen, and in my favorite color too. This skin blends right in with my Vista style wallpaper and the only part that I see is the blue screen. Thanks - January 14, 2007 by Bryan Evans

very slick - I only wish you could make some room for kbps info.. I noticed 2 odd things that will hopefully be fixed soon.. - when you adjust the volume occur: there a ")" near the % of the volume value. - also when you move the volume bar with the mouse to the max the volume goes down to 0. (which is kinda annoying) - finally I wish you would replace the "prev, stop, pause..." words with graphics.. anyway, it's an excellent skin.. one of the best on this site actually! cheers! - January 8, 2007 by j m

Exelente! - Este Skin está calidad, por eso le asigno 5 estrellas, con todo! cool! - January 6, 2007 by Eduardo Nolasco

Sweet - Very nice, very sleek and stylish, I like the blue and black, there is something about this skin.... - January 4, 2007 by Anthony Lazzarino

A beauty - This is the skin I did not know I was looking for. I knew it existed and to day I am lucky I have found it. It is gorgeous. It is illuminative. It is a gem beyond gems. This skin is an absolute beauty. In a delicate way minimalistic but not really. It has a mystery. On top of this all it is very easy to handle. I just love this piece of artwork very very very and very much. Looks fabulous on my desktop. SX you did a fantastic job. A master job of a masterpiece Thank you very much. - December 19, 2006 by Zatao Nirpadayati

Sorry iff i havent checked to see yet just so exited cause it looks sweeeeeet. - December 4, 2006 by fraser mcnally

By far my Favorite - This is by far my favorite skin, it's simple yet elegant. - December 2, 2006 by Zeb Wollner

wicked! - one of my faves. very. sexy. - November 25, 2006 by stizzle my pizzle

???? - how on earth do i set it so i have the buttons on it!!!!!! - November 23, 2006 by Jordan Davidson

Superb - dont have to say anything, its the best i´ve seen until now. cu rafo - November 13, 2006 by rafo man

This is the one for me! - The coolest, most stylish winamp skin, period. Luminous, dreamy blue. So clean and modern. Goodbye all those ugly buttons! - November 2, 2006 by brad ley

simple yet awesome - this skin is almost flawless. some minor issues: the playlist does not dock to the player when the buttons are hidden. the elapsed time cannot be changed to remaining time. the bars in the EQ are not dark enough. and the playlist does not have track time/playlist time. i could live w/o these but i know there are plenty of people out there who'd die w/o these... literally. something to keep in my mind for the next update. great skin otherwise. thanks! - October 26, 2006 by Jack Bauer

the best - Perfekt look - October 25, 2006 by Jozef Hlavacek

Amazing - By far one of the cleanest, most stylish skins out there. I especially love that you made the Play controls selectable, since although I have the media controls on my keyboard and use them most of the time, I like having the Play/pause/stop/etc. controls available in the skin. The only thing I would suggest is to make the playlist window more adjustable, it's too long for my taste. Everything is clear and readable, which is a big plus, since I have seen some really well designed (graphically) skins that the main window was way too small to read anything. Excellent Job! - October 6, 2006 by draconis42 Monaghan

Most stylish skin - This is the most stylish skin i've encountered. I only miss the windowshade mode. It would also be very nice to have some different color schemes. - October 1, 2006 by Erik Zijp

Best skin IMO - I've been using winamp since the classic skin was new school and I rode dinosaurs to school and this is no doubt the coolest skin I've yet seen. Great job sx nc! Thanks! - September 30, 2006 by Martin Blank

SO SEXY!! - This is by far the most profesional skin i have seen in a looong time. Mad mad props on this simple and elegant design. This has been my skin since it came out and i dont see it changing for a long time. - September 28, 2006 by Carson Christel

Superb - This skin looks awesome ! Keep up the good work !! Greetings from the rainy Netherlands ;-) Maybe some x-tra features in the next version would be nice (like color-schemes). Just some positive critism ;-)) Yours, Titan T. Fox - September 26, 2006 by Titan Fox

Like it alot - Fabulous! The best skin available at the moment. It is comfortably to watch and has well arranged menus and cool effects. I use it with the advanced-control trigger open, and the toggle playlist editor open above the "player". And I let this fill the right side of my screen in the same width as the "player" default. - September 26, 2006 by Per Hall

Barracuda Winamp - Sleek, clean, very uncluttered but easy to use at the same time. I\'ll be using this one for a long time. - September 25, 2006 by Don Ridge

Nicely done - @Jichajd Jichajd? Where are you talking about? :/ It has a minimize button! :\ Anyways... perfect skin... I like it... I like it... I like it! :D - September 25, 2006 by Dimitri R

Cool skin man really like it - but the only thing how do i get it to stay together so i can move it all around to gether some one tell - September 24, 2006 by Chris Simms

Only 1 thing missing - This skin is one of the best I've seen so far. Its only missing a window shade mode and it would be Perfect. - September 22, 2006 by Keagan Bradaigh

Sweet - smooth, sweet and classy. looks good over a black and/or blue background. - September 20, 2006 by Cameron Lucchesi

CLASSY !!! - im sorry there are only 5 stars that i can give otherwise i wouldve given a 100.....ive been using winamp for more then 5 years now and this skin is by far the best i have ever seen and downloaded from the internet.....THE BEST keep it up......killer.....!! Cheers SHaunak - September 19, 2006 by Shaunak Modi

Nice - Dude as i said befor "OFF THE HOOK" but the only problem is that i have all of my skins small and strech. Can u tell me how to make it smaller and strechier! Thx (Thanks) - September 17, 2006 by Nikesh Mehta

Very very nice - I like this a lot, there are a lack of skins like this. The only thing I'd really really love to see please please: Can the box be stretchable? I love to have winamp across the bottom of my screen along my taskbar. Thanks! - September 17, 2006 by Lawrence Stromski

One of the Best Skins ever uploaded - It is one of the best skins ever been uploaded but...!!!! 1. Please fix the bug that has to do with the remaining time [Ctrl + T] dooesn't seem to work...Not even the left click on the time works and ... 2. When exiting there is a script error but I haven't understood when it takes place....I think it takes place when exiting winamp but I am not completely sure... If these problems are fixed we can enjoy tha Barracuda.... Furthermore it is compact, wonderfull with nice discrete colours... I like it very much - September 17, 2006 by Kostas Papadopoulos

:) - Only one word - GREAT!!!! - September 16, 2006 by Peter Uzasny

BEST SKIN EVER! - So smooth, modern, looks simpel yet so Geniusly skin. Keep up the great work! - August 21, 2006 by Ross Vries

nice look - Ok, now this is a very good lookin skin.But there is a problem I can't change to remaining time, I can see only the elapsed time from the song and this is stupid.Please add this option and this skin will be the very best indeed! - August 16, 2006 by Zlati Pehlivanov
