Strawberry vs MediaMonkey opinions
It's better than Clementine :-)
It continues where Clementine stopped. A developed version of "old" Clementine. If you need a music library software, this is probably the closest to MediaMonkey. Simpler, with less functions but adequate.
MusicBee makes it easy to manage, find, and play music files on your computer. MusicBee also supports podcasts, web radio stations and SoundCloud integration.
MusicBee vs MediaMonkey opinions
I've tried pretty much every music library frontend out there. I use a combination of AIMP and MusicBee. I make music and have a lot of individual soundfiles that I don't want crowding up my main player, and AIMP can play and stop them from the taskbar without any gui interference. For listening to albums and podcasts I use Musicbee which has a great tagging system and is probably the most visually appealing player I've used.
MusicBee has a very similar appearance and feature set as MediaMonkey, but is much more customizable, feature-rich, and stable.

ipod and usb devices don't work.
On my Mac (late 2013) Clementine does not easily rip CDs from an external drive. It loses Album Artist information. It does not read .aiff files. I don't know what else it can't do, because those functions are so basic I refuse to dig deeper.
