Regarding the lag between songs, I would guess that is more to do with general lag in the sgs software rather than any of the different music players. Search for lag fix, there are loads of threads about it.
I do not know if you can turn off the artwork. I use the stock music player regularly and it runs great on mine, I have rooted and applied a lag fix. The only hiccup in playback is sometimes over blue tooth but that is very minimal. Normal playback is flawless.
