Anyone played with FLAC?

Claims to get almost 2:1 compression of wav file without loss.
At about 3 CDs / Gig it's viable for holding a CD library.

I tried ripping and compressing a CD with grip,
 it gives me a bunch of .flac files with sensible sizes
 but I can't seem to play them with XMMS
 or anything else (noatun) for that matter.
