What it looks like depends on how you choose to set the myriad display options;  this view is just one of those.  Start here:

http://musicbee.wikia.com/wiki/Panels_Configuration#Panels_Configuration

http://musicbee.wikia.com/wiki/Album_and_Tracks_View

etc.  the Wiki is the place to start.

What worked for me was first making a complete backup of the MusicBee folder (I have the portable installation);  then start dropping those menus and just trying things.  If you get everything hopelessly screwed up, no worries, just replace the whole folder with the backup, and try again!  When you end up with something that's 50% there, make another backup of that.  Repeat!  This app operates on the principle that maximum personal choice is better than a few "canned" views.  And it's got a 454 under the hood too (aka first rate audio).   Don't let the options intimidate you, just dig in.

MB is highly configurable and it would be nearly impossible to put an image of every skin and every layout on the website. The skin is called Monaural and you can find it in the skins section of the forum or the Add-ons section of the website.

As for the layout, the main panel has Album Art view with the Now Playing panel and Track Information panels on the right sidebar and the Thumbnail Browser in the left sidebar.

I suggest you spend some time looking at the Wiki, starting with this: http://musicbee.wikia.com/wiki/The_Anatomy_of_MusicBee

Thanks, I just looked and the skin is already installed. But they should at least use the default skin on the homepage, or make Monaural. Or just showcase multiple skins on the homepage.

Heh, this question seems to come up regularly.  Maybe it should be included in the FAQ, no?

Really like it. I'm on Windows, how can I get it looking like this?

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure that's Monaural.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.3 patch from here.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.4 beta patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

Hello. I'm new to MusicBee. It's clean user interface which is presented on main page immediately caught my attention. I tried many skins that resembled it the most (Threshold White is closest), but I couldn't find any skin as clean as presented theme. I also noticed that default layout is a bit different. Any tips?
The skin is was Monaural: http://getmusicbee.com/addons/skins/56/monaural/

EDIT: Shoot, it's gone.

Anyone know why it's gone?

If you have the latest MusicBee it should already be there as a skin choice:

View->Skins->Neutral->Monaural
