So I'm basically looking for a skin that'll do something like this as seen in the screenshots I took of retro music player. Maybe someone has seen or has made a theme that does this.

 

Something that doesn't have a lot of color options outside of a light, dark and AMOLED black theme. But as far as the "now playing" screen, I'm looking for something along these lines. It's adaptive in color, pulling primary/secondary colors from the cover art of the music. Changing different elements like the now playing background, text colors possibly. Just something along the lines of what I could show.

I do like that concept of simple adaptive foreground and background colours though. Not sure how simple it would be to implement, I guess Max might have to provide the colour analysis from the artwork for the skin to use?

 what is meant by "adaptive",

In the same way that the background blur effect is based on the colour palette of the current song's cover artwork, two colours (one for foreground text and one for background) could be picked to complement the current image. Very different from having every element defined in a different colour of course, it would be a very clean and minimalist approach.

It really would be quite a clean yet very simple look. Hopefully @maxmp will come in and let us know how possible such a thing would be. It's kind of dynamic since it would change so much based on covers but still.

We can't have one particular adaptive color for labels, as we have same title/2nd line in the lists and we don't want those adaptive colors in the list (as list will look like a rainbow). But I guess while some sort of adaptive colors just for main screen is possible, the smooth animations (or transformations, as we transform same labels to list and back) are still required. Added to the backlog.

Yes, it wouldn't be much use in lists if each line and background was based on the associated different cover thumbnails! :)

It still might look nice in the player screen though, but not worth putting a lot of work into.

For a solid color look, try setting your background detail to 0 or 1

It's not a perfect solution. Some album backgrounds look good while others look strange.
