You should try grip! The best IMHO.

Summary : Grip, a CD player and ripper/MP3-encoder front-end
Description :
Grip is a gtk-based cd-player and cd-ripper. It has the ripping capabilities
of cdparanoia builtin, but can also use external rippers (such as
cdda2wav). It also provides an automated frontend for MP3 encoders, letting
you take a disc and transform it easily straight into MP3s. The CDDB
protocol is supported for retrieving track information from disc database
servers. Grip works with DigitalDJ to provide a unified "computerized"
version of your music collection.
