You don't actually mount audio CDs.
In my gnome setup, if you just put the CD in, don't mount it, and double
click on the drive, it'll show you all the audio tracks.

You can play audio CDs via XMMS as well.  Right click on the "open"
button, and pick "Play Location", and type in "/dev/cdrom", it'll start
playing the audio CD.
