I like the sidebar changes--there's definitely lot of wasted space there 
if you don't make heavy use of the playlists.  What I don't particularly 
like is the "options" menu at the bottom.  We've already got 
shuffle/repeat in the Control menu, and I think we need to keep the 
toggle buttons in the main view.  And where's the search box?  I think 
the Show Browser/Search toolbar's also one to keep.  So basically it's 
just the sidebar changes I like. :)

Would the album cover then appear over where it says "Drag your artwork 
here"?  I think that is a much better spot for the artwork than next to 
the title, and eliminates the ui resizing problem--an excellent idea. 
It would also be big enough to discern the picture a bit better!

I'm not sure what I think about the visualization window, though.  Are 
there currently plans to integrate visualization plugins into RB? 
Personally I couldn't care less about visualization--I've always thought 
it rather pointless waste of CPU cycles, but I know some people like it. 
    As long as it's easy enough to turn off, that would be fine.
