Oh dont get me wrong now, you did a good job on the skin but metro has now ropes tying me to it. Theres no bling no wow no gotta have that player, effect in metro for me.

I like buttons of different shapes and colors makes me want to click all them that way. :D

After using it for awhile, I have a minor comment.
I think it would have looked better having the Media Tree the same colour scheme as the rest of the skin instead of brown.

Well, whole skin based on this color value ,
and i try before with uncolored background but decide too use this one,
to have some colors in the skin and not just another dark one.
but this you can easily overwrite via Tools / Options / Skin / overwrite Skin background /customize Tree background !

Very nice skin DreadM. I love it.

A few comments:
I miss a stop button.

If it is possible to skin I would like the brown color in,
Art & Details background and Auto-tag from web background

Continue with your awesome work!!!

Yes, we all love "Stop" buttons, but it seems to be very cool not to have one.
If you don't have a "Stop" button, then you are a very cool dude.

Hi DreadM,

Congrats! Great work. Best MM skin until now, really nice looking icons and fits very well into Win8.

Question:
Above the player and under the playlkist I have a little (i) icon. What function should it have - cause there is nothing clickable for me.

Suggestions:
More colour versions - a lighter theme, f.e. maybe a light blue?
The archiv backgroud doesn't fit to the other colours (needs a little bit shadow, and more darkness) like stigg already said.

Greetings

Thanks for you comments,

Stop Button:
for design reasons i decide to use no stop button ,
modern ui style gives objects lot of space ,and each extra button will reduce the available space for the info area about 80-100 pix.

this i took from the G-Monkey skin (GrooveMonkey Mock)and it have no function , just a hint for the Status bar, maybe i made it a bit darker.

I already work on it :

but run into some problems,
i have to recolor all icons and the round ones don't look so nice :-?
