If you're going to do nothing but copy bad illegible UI, what's next, Window's 3.1 Hot Dog Stand theme?
But seriously, since your UI designers seem to want to copy something, how about a few suggestions.
Even Android Holo, which presumably you're trying to copy, isn't pure white, and has clear sections and grads: http://pictures.recombu.com/news/M16866/1329409351_w670_h421.jpg
I hope they don't f up the iPad UI: http://techtoinks.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-o-matic/cache/43637_rdio-ipad-app-screenshot.jpg
I get that it's kind of iTunesey, but at least it's legible: http://s3.amazonaws.com/bestvendor-paperclip/screenshots/446/optimal.png
Really miss this: http://renaissancedan.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/RdioBubbles.png
This is "minimal" and doesn't assault my face: http://psdho.me/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/audio-player-interface-widget-full.jpg
Even the Google Music interface is better, and look they have a rewind button!: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-80E1tsbZ6K0/Ts3Gii0ZZkI/AAAAAAAACLU/ClOOFqixQjU/s1600/Screen+shot+2011-11-22+at+PM+09.59.34.jpg
The Adobe Media player has a more pleasing interface?: http://i.i.com.com/cnwk.1d/i/bto/20080721/adobe_media_player_home_7.21.2008.jpg
Not sure if this is better, but it's not nuking my eyes: http://twi.im/view/justhadsexc.JPG
I don't love black, but it's better than white: http://img830.imageshack.us/img830/6536/silentnightv4byarnie77.png
God, even the Zune software had a lot going for it: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-5LHqRKzcxUo/TWKuySkg_9I/AAAAAAAAAfk/zA7_OqwVjUI/s1600/zune_software_1.jpg
Amateur and ugly, but at least it looks intentional and not broken: http://th00.deviantart.net/fs49/PRE/f/2009/186/e/b/Zune_Player_Desktop_by_kyosan1988.jpg
Above all, try and create your own identity. Even though it could use an update, I miss this: http://static1.djtechtools.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/Screen-Shot-2011-08-30-at-11.52.07-PM-560x392.png
This guy took a stab at it. It successfully merges the old Rdio identity with the new layout: http://dribbble.com/shots/620499-Rdio-Mac-App-Redesign
Somebody else did some work for you: http://dribbble.com/shots/566311-Rdio
This looks pretty sweet, oh, wait: http://dribbble.com/system/assets/2323/30071/screenshots/555220/shot.png?1336686889
