CoverWall displays your covers in the backgorund. It's like a giant, cool wallpaper, and all you have to do, is just start the application, and enjoy your artworks.
It helps to rediscovering your long forgotten albums, or just helps to choose what to listen when you have absolutely no idea.
Also, you can set up the animation types, and several things in the settings menu.
If you like, try out the iPad/iPhone version of it.
NOTE: If you want to turn off the background, then select exit from the menu bar.
If you have any suggestion or problem about CoverWall, please feel free to write an e-mail to me. You can do it easily from the about window. Thanks.

Music Wallpaper - Very cool and good for people who listen to music everyday. =D
Avoid - Avoid this until further updates improve it. The idea, laudable enough, is to take the built-in iTunes Cover Art screen saver and make it a desktop background, so you can keep working while it's going on. Unfortunately, the program is such a memory hog that it slows down the rest of the system. At that point, you may as well sit back and enoy it as a screen saver anyway. The options are slightly different from the iTunes screen saver, but not enough to make it worth while. The ultimate experience is virtually identical. Finally, the program must scan your iTunes library not just once, but every time it starts up. This takes upwards of 15 minutes in my experience. Granted I have a large library, but this is a task that the iTunes screen saver accomplishes in 4-5 seconds. There are a lot of great opportunities, I think, for writing programs that take iTunes cover art and do fun things with it. This program wastes that opportunity and instead creates something that already exists -- and is free. Here's hoping the developer can continue to improve stability, memory use, and add some more interesting options in the settings panel.
