Staff review

Your other skins have just been owned...

It doesn't get much better than this! It has excellent style, more features than you can shake a stick at and great usability.


Cool - It Look Lovely and Cute. - July 15, 2009 by Kannan SR

Nice setup - I only have one complaint, that is you cannot go directly to video/vis like you can with the standard. - October 6, 2008 by Raymon Holeman

Compact - ...and great color combos - September 11, 2008 by Jason Jones

exellent!!! - definitely one of the best has the complete package and very neatly built...its size is one of its strengths...and the variety of the colours/themes is fantastic and very different from the other players...! this is a unique skin.....exellent work....! - September 9, 2008 by jake b

wow.....! - this is definitely one of the best winamp skins i have personally ever used. - September 9, 2008 by amit bordoloi

Great skin!.. - ..but it is unclear to me how to get the colors working ;) - September 7, 2008 by Mariska Homan

hi - sfdf - September 5, 2008 by GABRIEL roamar

i want to lisen music - I want to lisen music now - August 27, 2008 by lungu marius

Wow! - This skin is great! Size versatility is so important to me and this skin works well! Even some of the viz options are hysterical. Nice work, I love it! :) - February 10, 2008 by Sara Lwin

Super skin!!! - This is one of the best skins ever! Although, is seems to have a problem... when i toggle the playlist editor mode, the skin is only half. It looks like a bug! - January 18, 2008 by Alex Comanoiu


Are you testing my eyes ? - Very small, Need a telescope to zoo00M !!too shame ! I am giving it 1 :unusable !! - October 26, 2007 by john red

Different layouts in one? Excellent! - I really like this one. I would have given it five, but I couldn't find the same analyzer visualisation as on the pic here :(Apart from that! It's my favourite. - July 17, 2007 by Daniel MacDonald

excelent - the best skin ever! serious ! - May 26, 2007 by cristian bucsa

very awsome - hi 1st thing first awsome skin i am adicted to it totaly but there seems to be problem when turning on winamp, each time at startup i need to set it up manually to be docked and color theme. any chance i am missing something somewhere in setup or maybe u missed something. - April 15, 2007 by Tomo S

Perfect - This is the skin I was hoping I'd find. The look is great, it is easy to use and I don't lose any of the function that I'm accustomed to. Now I have the look I want and the program I love. - March 23, 2007 by k derhay

Super !!! - Hello, guys! It\'s my first comment on this site, so I am a little bit confused... About this skin what could I's one of the best skins I ever downloaded for my player. Well done Linus, and keep it on this way !!!!!! - March 5, 2007 by Rusz Zsolt

A Top Notch Skin - This is the only skin I use, and have been using since it was released. 5+ stars. My only complaint is that the spectrum analyzer visualization does not have options to change to thin lines or removing the "falloff peaks." Considering I have to dig that deep to find something to complain about says alot. Final note: I have found that the "DVD" color theme is the easiest to read and least wacky. Enjoy! - December 31, 2006 by Dennis Peterson

strange behavior - The bar mode has a strange behavior; the main window suddenly pushes away the playlist window, using all the screen widht ( That's a lot in my 21 inches monitor). The same does with no user intervention the playlist window. And where in hell is the equalizer button in the barmode? Looks OK, clear buttons(well labeled, no strange signs instead like some others, specially in the playlist window) Just need some polishing. - October 23, 2006 by Sergio Mendes

xXx - Cool - October 22, 2006 by 1ega Edgar

Amazing - This is absolutely my favourite! - October 17, 2006 by Stefano Ferrario

massive ! =) - it's a first serious and interesting skin I chose as alternative to Winamp Modern skin :) just decided to change some and found this great thing ! - September 24, 2006 by TJR Rhino

cool - very cool - September 23, 2006 by bard bard

Nice and practise - Many colours themes, notifications and some good functions. - September 19, 2006 by Lukasz Bartos

High quality - D-Reliction is a deep skin with many carefully-designed features. I wish there were more skins like this one. Extraordinary work. - September 17, 2006 by Pascal Getreuer

Superb - This is the best skin I have ever downloaded and will likely be the last. This skin has it all easy to read buttons, great color schemes. I don't think I have seen a skin that took this much work to develope. Give it a chance you will love it and use it and likely never go back. Double the star rating. - September 15, 2006 by Britt Bissing

finally: - superb! - June 26, 2006 by harold vasiljev

the best - very goooood .........................! please d-reliction 2 !!!!!! - March 30, 2006 by Javier Ignacio

Great skin - Great skin... Pitty the rateing system here only goes to 5 stars! :) ~ Good selection of visulisations ~ Good amount of color variations ~ Reasonably quick compaired to some other skins. Thanks, Danny - March 21, 2006 by Danny Blanche

From now on, i'm using this skin! - Very cool. I like the color themes, visualisations, and the appearance, it looks so fresh & clean :) . It deserves more than 5 stars. - March 6, 2006 by Secret Verybigsecret

Awesome - The only skin I can stand to use. - February 27, 2006 by kyle sims

very smooth - hate skins with choppy looking edges! but this is really clean, - February 12, 2006 by C Justice

WOW - OMG This is so awesome! I have downloaded and tried EVERY skin I ever found attractive and I have been forced to go back to the Winamp Modern skin every time. Either the new skin is to big or to small, to splashy or to dull, whatever the case I have never gotten a good skin. This skin D-Reliction changes all that!! It is PERFECT!! There are soooo many colors, just like Winamp Modern, it has three modes, not just two,(I love and use all three) the layout takes acouple of minutes of getting used to since all the buttons look the same but their all in the same place as other skins mostly. There are also alot of different visualisers although I always stick with the good, old Spectrum Analyzer. All in all, this skin is infinatly better than any other skin I have ever downloaded! I am soo happy I found it and am thoroughly satisfied with it. This is deffinatly my main and Favotrite skin including the old Winamp Modern. To the people who made this skin, I thank you and salute you for this wonderful job, and I pleas ask for you to continue making awesome skins like this one. Thank You. - February 7, 2006 by Jason Bossley

Super! - For me, this is the best! - December 21, 2005 by Marian Denes

nice skin - nice Clean skin easy to use well done - December 20, 2005 by D O Gorman

Wowsa! - Love it. :) Does all I want :) - November 24, 2005 by Anatis X

perfect... almost - this is an excellent skin, with plenty of colours and options to change its look and feel. i use this skin 24/7, and i would of given this it 5 stars if it wasnt for the annoying 'crashes' it has every now and then. oerall, it is up there with the best, deifnitely worth having! - November 9, 2005 by efil zaggin

.THIS.SKIN.TOTALLY.ROCKS. - This skin is one of my favorites. I lvoe how it has a lot of color themes and the visualizations are so cool! This skin is pure ownage. - November 2, 2005 by DIANA nguyen

great job! - wonderfull :D - October 30, 2005 by Anna Bogalecka

brill skin - Ive only download 2 skins so far since ive had winamp.This skin is the best skin that ive seen far. Well done. - October 18, 2005 by robert hines

The best :D - moj ulubiony skin ;) - September 15, 2005 by Leonus Sakkra

Awesome! - It is obvious why this skin has recieved rave reviews. - September 4, 2005 by Robert Norton

IT REALLY WHIPS THE LAMA'S ASS! - Dude... I don't even know where to begin. All I can say is that this guy must be a professional art student. I used to know some guys like that, and man...this is the kind of stuff they liked to do -sleek graphics, cool interface...almost like you can touch it.... One of the most important things though, is that Linus figured out a way to pack alot of "punch" into a very limited amount of space, without making it confusing, cluttered, and chaotic. He also didn't make it the size of texas, either. It's balanced, carefully planned, and well thought-out. The ultimate skin (I've been a user since 1.8, I believe, so I've seen alot)! Very well done. I don't think there's a better skin out there. - September 3, 2005 by Jonathan L

Wow! - This skin is great! Many colors to choose, nice visualizations! I've never been more satisfied! - September 1, 2005 by Jonas Stenman

awesome!!!!!!!!!! - doesn't get any better - August 30, 2005 by Tamara Cochran

As good as I've seen - A fantastic skin. Has all the features of the Winamp Modern skin wrapped up in an elegant looking package. - August 29, 2005 by Warren Koch

Very Neat! - Yeah, a MMD3 kinda screen! Great work. A skin that has the potential to last more than 2 days! - August 26, 2005 by Vinit Doshi

a - a - August 25, 2005 by vladen vaskovic

mauro - para murossssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss - August 25, 2005 by mauro alejandro

really great. - Finally a skin that comes close to giving MMD3 a run for its money. - August 25, 2005 by guilherme pires

Believe the hype - Yes it really is the best. Most importantly (for me) it includees a dockable, auto-hiding winshade toolbar - and lots of colour choices. The custom visuals are ace, especially the one with the boobies - very funny. This skin will go down in history, this is the skin we will compare all other 'modern' skins by. I've just creamed myself. - August 25, 2005 by Adam Luttman

Amazing - Hi, this is the most amazing skin I have ever seen! - July 5, 2005 by asasd asd

Good work!! - Along comes another quality skin. Loved the mini mode, small campact, yet clear and easy to use. Love the visualizations, nice variety you wont find on other skins. Nice selection of colors, though I found some a bit much with the glare at top of main window. Tool tips help a lot, maybe put a small icon on the control buttons. Other than that was an enjoyable skin to use. - June 26, 2005 by Wolf Bringer

Very nice - Nice, stylish, compact player with lots of cool color themes to choose from. I especially like that it's compact, but still very detailed and crisp, and easy to read and use. - June 21, 2005 by Jess Frazier

One Word - Rules! - June 8, 2005 by Robert Norton

damn... - I have got to say this is the best winamp skin I have ever seen or used. It's beautiful..simple and fully functional. the visualizations are amazing and the color themes are awesome (thumbs up on the girly colors i love em) I deleted all my other skins.. and had to write a review. thanks for the great skin and keep up the good work! - May 25, 2005 by Gina Me

Excellent - First-Rate skin: great visual appeal coupled with full functionality. One of the best skins I've ever seen: you guys know your stuff, hope to see more from you. - May 23, 2005 by ajaxx ajaxx

Fantastic - Love this skin, definitely staying as mine for a while now, keep up the good work! - May 18, 2005 by Super Beer

simply wow! - this is by far one of the best skins that i've come to, or even the best. i came, i saw it, and i absolutely fell in love with it. keep up the amazing work, and i look forward to seeing more of your work ;) - March 13, 2005 by milda s

Excellent Work - By far, my favorite modern skin. Piano Man is my favorite color scheme, though many are strong. I don't anticipate changing skins anytime soon. This is as close to perfect as I've seen. - March 7, 2005 by Tyson Smith

Good competition to MMD3 - Must say... awesome work. Very professional. Color themes, IMO, could have been a little better. But that won't prevent me from giving this 5 starts. great job done! - February 28, 2005 by Prashanth Srinivasan

wow!! - I love this skin...specially the tool bar cool! ^^ - February 20, 2005 by Laine Rose

cool - superb - February 7, 2005 by serkan simsek

All you'll ever need-if you have tons of resources - I love this skin. It has everything - including colors to match every wallpaper or screen color. The options are amazing and plentiful. The only problem is that it uses a lot of resources and takes longer to start up than other skins - even other modern skins. - January 11, 2005 by Judi Rayner

great - its very good! love it, and the colors are very sweet! only, where is the viz button? but not a big deal. - January 8, 2005 by C Deiter

WOW - Wow, just wow, The first colour scheme I used *kript - Cardinal took my breath away, I LOVE this skin. - January 2, 2005 by Magickal Hack

O.M.G.!!!!! - Dude. Wow. Seriously. I have been using Winamp since WAY back in v1.0, and I have been through a MASSIVE number of skins. I have about 1,500 skins in my collection, and go through them every so often, just to see if my taste has changed. Before, I would always go back to MASSamp (in older WA versions) or to MMD3 (in WA5). Now? Man, this thing looks SO smooth, has tons of color themes and animations built in, that I CAN'T give it any less than 5 stars! Your animations are very smooth, and I noticed that when I scaled the windows up to 200% (my usual increase for visibility on the third monitor), the graphics maintained their sharp appearance, with none of that jagged-edge effect or blurriness that seems to plague some of the other promising skins. What you've done here, I thought was only possible by a small handful of skin artists: given Winamp a completely new, refreshing, and interesting appearance. Skins that make me want to play with the program more, and re-vitalize my love for the program are very hard to find, and seem to be few and far between. Congratulations friend, this is one of them. In fact, I would call this the best I have seen so far. There's one other out there that held that title (and was loaded without fail when I started WA for the last couple years), but D-Reliction has taken its place. It's extremely easy on the eyes, easy to use, and your help system (accessed through the side drawer) was helpful and ingenious. It showed me options I hadn't even considered looking for in WA5. The notifier popup is simply a beautiful touch, and I find it extremely handy, since I use multiple monitors during programming sessions, and though I have the player up on one of the screens, find it a mild distraction to look over to see exactly what tune that is currently playing, (I frequently listen to streams). Now even that minor annoyance is gone, thanks to your skin. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for such a wonderful work of art, and brilliant skin design the likes of which may not be seen here for a long time to come. You've raised the bar for aspiring skin artists. Of course, this is all just my opinion, but like I said, when it comes to Winamp and its army of skins and plugins, I've been there, seen that. I'm pleased to be here and see this, and it's not likely I will be moving on for a long long time. - December 8, 2004 by Chris Mack

D-Reliction - i like its style thats why i choose it for my skin - November 20, 2004 by Denine Hebert

My favorite - Simply the best: colors, anims, design... Great job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - November 5, 2004 by Gauthier Tellier

Got beer? - Well, not exactly, even though I enjoy that too from time to time, this skin is the skin to download. The winner of the GUIO 2004 (Graphic User Interface Olympics) works like silk, thanks to excellent coding, state of the art graphics and a lot of well balanced colour schemes. This alone would be more than enough for most people (most people live in China, by the way), but in addition, the excellent and funny built-in visualization, is the cream of this skin-pie. (Did I mention I love pie?) Now, give yourself a nice skin today - download now! - October 20, 2004 by Jan Gjestad

By far the best skin I have ever used - Hands down the best skin I have ever used. The only thing I really didnt like was the somewhat juvenile themes for the visualizations. Could have been less cute but I am a cynic. I have burned winamp for alot of friends and told them to get rid of other applications and i always include this skin.....its perfect. - October 20, 2004 by beerme Heden

nice... - very sharp looking... great pixel art - October 19, 2004 by Dun Tuk

Amazingn - Just Amazing! - This is the greatest skin I've ever found! It's easy to use, and looks nice on the desktop! Thanks! - October 16, 2004 by Debbie Hostetler

nice - very nice...... - October 15, 2004 by flavio paula

This skin is all I use! - I have deleted all my other skins. I'm not kidding. Including the one I made (which is crap, anyway). This little baby is pretty, functional and fun. When I want to surf the web or work on a project, the stick mode fits nicely in my toolbar. When I want to waste time, both of the other modes are just nice to look at. The color schemes are all fabulous. Need I mention the vast selection of visualizations? I've been looking for the ULTIMATE Winamp skin, and now I've found it. This is as close to perfect as one could hope for. I probably won't download another skin for years. Awesome! - September 26, 2004 by Willie Smith

Only God could make a better one :D - I don't easily bother reviewing skins, but this one is fabulous. There isn't much to say about it, because it's just perfect - everything you could possibly want in a skin is there: Awesome good-looks, functionality, clarity, color, ease-of-use, well-thought design, everything is there. It goes one notch over MMD3, which although remains a perfect skin, now feels a little older. The only flaw I could find is that the mini-mode and the winshade-mode could be a little smaller, but hey, what's lost in miniaturisation is gained in clarity. I usually like them just a little bit smaller, so I'm gonna rate 'D-Reliction' one star lower than I first intended - not 7/5, but 6/5 stars ! :D Really, we're gonna wait a LONG time for a better skin than this. - September 26, 2004 by Sam T

cool - cool, cool and cool - September 25, 2004 by Agata Szewczuk

Outstanding, my prefered skin. - Excellent skin. Has almost everything I want. Only thing I miss is an equalizer button in stick mode. - September 15, 2004 by David S

I should... - I should've put down FIVE stars. The skin is what you could call an addiction... It's so... "complete". - September 5, 2004 by Thomas Melis

cool... - the only word that can describe this skin is 'cool'..simply cool..good job Linus! - September 5, 2004 by raais mohd azhar

coolnezz - Nice, cool, sharp, when you scale it up in size it doesn't really take the sharpness away. And the visualisation plus colors work really great for it! Thanx! - September 4, 2004 by Thomas Melis

r - wffdsfsdfsdfsdfsdfs - August 29, 2004 by g z

Ooooh - First off, I'd like to say: I love the color schemes! They're great. Some of the best I've seen and you can see everything clearly on every single one. And second: This is one of the best Winamp skins. Ever. Keep it up, man. - August 16, 2004 by Cetra X

+- - +- - August 10, 2004 by Dante Luis Choques Sanchez

WOW - I Hope to God this finally gets featured! This one deserves it! Maybe it will make a high enough rating to get more hits. Linus is the Man! - July 30, 2004 by QuadHeliX Barber

Very useable. - I think the only thing that would have made this skin any better is a slighty thinner stick mode. And I couldn't seem to settle on a color theme that went with silver XP just right, but that's a personal thing. Very nice skin...I look forward to seeing more! - July 27, 2004 by deus diabolus

Didnt even see it coming... - In the blink of an eye, this skin pushed its way to my top 3 skins. (#1 if anyone wants to know) D-Reliction has a smooth Digital Music Device feel like MDD3 combined witn the useability of the WinAmp Defalt Skin. A star for cool, clean design A star for custom visuals A star for diversity of color themes A star for ease of use A star for adding a "Skin Tips" Window - July 19, 2004 by Dark Shadow

Stunning! - I was looking for two things in a skin: a dockable, auto-hiding winshade toolbar and lots of color choices. So many skins tend all towards dark and "futuristic" colors, or the complete opposite with cute and girly. It's rare that you find a nice mix. D-Reliction provides exactly that. Just from the names alone, with colors such as Dark Skull and Malibu Stacy, you know there's a color theme for every possible mood or taste. The themes are nicely done; no "let's just do a colorwash on the whole thing rather than actually putting effort into it" here. The funcionality is amazing, with such features as a dockable toolbar and alternate fonts, the visualizations are outstanding (maybe even enough for me to keep it in full mode instead of my beloved toolbar!), and the skin itself is nice and clean. I'd say that I look forward to more skins from Linus, but I really don't see how anyone could top this. - July 18, 2004 by Kate Gicante

5 Stars - Nice skin... the interface is easy to see (with most color themes). The AVS settings are very cool, my favorite is the hazardous area setting (14). - July 17, 2004 by Pascal Getreuer

Best skin ever - This is definitely the best skin I have ever used. I used to just use classic skins, because I didnt like hardly any of the modern skins, but now I don't like using classic skins because of this one. Seriously, do yourself a favor and download this skin. Excellent job Linus. - July 14, 2004 by Jacob Schuman

well what should I say... - this skin is excellent. go download it if you haven't done so yet! - July 13, 2004 by 883 [breed]

Best - Up to now. Winamp 5 is great, and skilled skinners greater even (or odds) : it ain't obvious. D-Reliction is gorgeous, smart, quick (nice script, obviously). This skin is very, very nice. Better than pro : you admire AND love it. Very nice work, somewhere between fidelity and imagination, neither skin-headed nor out-of (fashion). We are invited to the best. - July 9, 2004 by Michel Veigh

OMG!!! - When I downloaded this, I actually went into tears. I couldn't believe how good this skin was. I just love the visualisations. My favourite is either the Daydreamer or Hazardous Area. I also love the three modes. That was ingenious. And the colour schemes? *sigh* I think I'm in love. :-D - July 7, 2004 by Vivian Tong

Excellent skin - Cool visualizations and a lot of color themes - July 7, 2004 by Jorge Saturno

Nice!!! - Truely one of my favorites, and this one's just straight out understandable. - July 4, 2004 by T W

wow - i tryed may skins and i must say this is my favoret this skin is amasing i like how evry thing is set up and it looks cool the coolest skin i have seen this skin looks amasing with the color Europa. to the maker of this skin congrats. - July 1, 2004 by David McGraw

Finally a skin I can read my song titles with! - This skin is good on many levels. 1) The design is sleek, compact, and functional 2) Many creative visualizations to choose from, the girl with the bra that fades with the drum beat is a work of genius. 3) I can actually read my song titles! Many other skins I find either have song text dimmed out or scaled so small you can barely read them on high-res displays or use an exotic font that I can't map to handle asian text properly. This skin handles song title text wonderfully x) did I mention the vis with the boobies? heh :) I wont give it a 5 because personally I think the controls take up too much space, and if you select one of the smaller modes you lose the main visual window and it takes a bit to learn the buttons in the smaller modes (no labels)... but overall a very nice skin. - June 23, 2004 by Brian Mason

Top Drawer Kensington! - Probably the best PixelArt meets freeform Winamp skin I have ever seen. Well thought out... supurbly exectued.. and generally [email protected] Huge Fan! - June 22, 2004 by Ground Hawg

Rock Solid - This skin is quite simply the best i have ever downloaded. Has all the extras anyone could care for, and maintains somewhat the same shape of winamp. I really enjoy this one, and all it's custom features, my new default skin, and i am sure others as well - June 22, 2004 by Anthony Pellegrini

Wow! - Just an amazingly good Winamp skin! - June 19, 2004 by Hus .

One of the best skins I ever saw! - Great skin and even better coding. This is a sight for sore eyes! USE it before reviewing it. The pictures don't do it justice - June 19, 2004 by Hawk .

Brian - I don't need another skin, this is it. Excellant! - June 19, 2004 by Brian Danforth

Wow. - I think we just found a new featured skin ;) - June 18, 2004 by Scott Kuehnert

solide skin that u got here - The code of it is perfect, the vis and the color themes r0x (especially mine ; ) ). The overall of the skin looks awesome and it's so friendly user,nice job Linus and Kweept ; ] - June 18, 2004 by merci oner

Still great! MMD3 finally has some competition! - I downloaded this skin during the GUI Olympics and was amazed at the quality of coding and sheer usefulness that it offered and still use this as my preferred skin. The visualizations are certainly different (although a spectrum analyzer and oscilliscope are present, too), but they are excellent examples of new and creative touches in this skin. There is an abundance of color themes, so it will fit in on anybody's desktop. The 3 modes offered are each excellent for their intended purposes (I personally prefer the shade mode, in toolbar mode). Whether you are Winamp n00b or a seasoned veteran, D-Reliction is a must-download for your skin collection. It offers excellent ease of use while maintaining many advanced features and may just be the best skin to grace Winamp since the treasured MMD3. - June 17, 2004 by toejam 07


nice :) - this skin is just cool.. but the guios aren'T over yet.. don't you want the chance to win the users choice? :) anyway.. i give just four starts, because it's not freeform ;) i hope you can live with that :) i'd give 4,5 if i could :) - June 17, 2004 by i rontz
