Excellent! But it's ABANDONWARE: "THIS PROJECT IS UNMAINTAINED. This means that bugs will not be fixed and features will not be added unless someone else does so. Unfortunately, the former maintainers no longer have the time and/or resources to work on Hermes further." *** Note: It Still Works GREAT on macOS 11 Big Sur on M1 Macs using Rosetta 2. No inflicted tune stalling BS. Yay.

Hermes works great, is tied to my keyboard play/pause buttons, and picks up right where I left off if I pause it. Great app.

Interface is straightforward. I like how it sits in the menu bar near my Google player. Audio quality is first rate. I'm running an older version under Snow Leopard and it works great!
