Gnome "One of the things that the GNOME design crew have been focusing on recently is creating a new approach to application design for GNOME 3. We want GNOME applications to be thoroughly modern, and we want them to be attractive and a delight to use. That means that we have to do application design differently to how we've done it in the past."

They wanted to demonstrate the "particular album view" of their music player with that screenshot ("The (...) GNOME 3 Music app (...) contains a view for browsing and a view for looking at a particular album, artist or playlist."). Of course that wastes a lot of space when maximised - there just is nothing else to display. It's unfortunate that they didn't show a picture of the other views as well, though.
