People always have been looking for one tool that fills all the needs in a particular niche. Come to web browsing, you customize and 'pimp' you little browser so that it does all the possible jobs that you might need to do while browsing the net. Somehow, despite the existence of stand-alone applications, many people prefer convergent applications. The world of music management is no exception. You have Tag Editors, Meta Data Retrievers, Players and Converters for Various formats, Programs to sync music devices like iPods, and hoards more to organize a proper library filled with album artwork and well, you do get the feel, don't you?
For music management atleast, things would get faster with a feature packed SUPER application. For that very purpose we have a specialized generalist named Amarok! You might like to use it for -

Online content retrieval, support for a variety of formats, podcasting tolls, support to sync multiple kinds of music players including iPods, Creative Zen, or for that matter almost all popular USB based devices, and a lot more which would turn this landing page into a novel.

Amarok is capable of retrieving all kinds of data including lyrics from such sites. Support for Muzikbrainz Picard, the revolutionary audio-fingerprinting service is something worth more than just a mention. Amarok also has integration to Amarok's inbuilt Magnatune music store.
