iTunes 5 = iTunes 4 with no metal

The biggest difference between iTunes 4 and iTunes 5? Well, iTunes 5 doesn't use the controversial metal theme. Instead, it uses a theme much like Mail.app - a smooth, ultra shiny theme. My $0.02? This new theme is graphically unbalanced and too contrasted. I expect the next release of iTunes (5.1? 5.0.1?) to have a drastically lighter, less shadowed theme. My honest first impression is that the current theme just doesn't live up to Apple's refinement.
