I quite liked Quod Libet as well, though it might be a little confusing.
I'll make a list off the top of my head:

Quod Libet: http://www.sacredchao.net/quodlibet/
Listen: http://www.listen-project.org/
Decibel: http://decibel.silent-blade.org/
gmusicbrowser: http://squentin.free.fr/gmusicbrowser/gmusicbrowser.html (has
a very confusing interface)
Exaile: http://www.exaile.org/ (they're working on version 0.3, so this
might not yet be a good idea)
Banshee: http://banshee-project.org/ (quite nice but Mono...)
And of course Rhythmbox and Xfmedia

IMO any of the above would be better than a non-GTK one (though of course, I
do have strong preferences of some over others :).
