I going to quote the part of the answer that seems relevant to me in
that threat:

"I doubt some kind of "eye-candy" would be accepted by the devs.
Rhythmbox is definitely designed to the functional, user-friendly and
accessible, following the GNOME principles, rather than providing
useless eye-candy."

There has been many requests for changes in the UI, many mockups, many
requests for themes and so. But none of these is never done, and I
think, is because no developer really cares about it. Usability is a
big part on rhythmbox and usually this requests don't help in that
sense. For example what you may see as "wasted space" I easily look at
it as a clean interface.

Now if you want to change the UI, in the sources shell/ grep for "gtk_".
