Con Cover songs show up in mixes
Amateur cover songs have a habbit of finding their way into mixes which means TOMAHAWK has trouble telling the difference.
Con Lacks some polish
While listening to music, the music area doesn't scroll along with the music. Also, some of the plugins are slow to respond and they each provide a slightly different experience with which information they show, and how they show it (there isn't a standard format).
Con Development seems to have stalled
This project's github readme.md states that the project is abandoned, although some people appear to be contributing still.
Con No playlists
Or not yet, at least in the forums they say they're working on it
