Just upgraded to iTunes 11. It's completely different in almost every possible way. What do you guys thing about it? At first I was really annoyed that Cover Flow is gone, but I'm growing to the new way of displaying albums. I don't like the 'fade' effect they put on the album art in the pop-out though - it looks really bad in almost all cases, especially with Uno Dos and Tre. I think the more I play with it, the more I start to like it. Definitely still needs a little aesthetic work though.

I really like the new way of displaying albums, it looks really good with American Idiot and 21st CB.

I hate it, want the old one back. Because I can't seem to sort albums after artist-release year, it automatically sorts after artist-name of the album. You can't make the album covers/squares bigger either like you could with the old one. And I have to move the whole itunes window by myself because otherwise I can't scroll. Conclusion, it's shit :pinch:

There should be an option for artist-year. I hope so at least. I didn't know that we can update to iTunes 11, so I'll do that now. Let's see what I think about it..

Don't update, you'll regret it! :happy: I've looked at every possible place and I can't find artist-year like I could in the old one.

And another problem, the new itunes deleted some of the music videos I had =/

It is possible to go back to another version, or not?

I want the old version back, but I'm kinda lazy. Guess I'll have to deal with this one.

I got really pissed off at this at first, but found a fix: Press ctrl+J, and then a window will pop up giving you the option to re-sort your albums according to year.

I'm actually really liking the 'Up Next' feature. Very handy for creating spontaneous playlists.

That first one looks pretty cool, but then the second one.. not so much. Why does that have to remind me of the windows 8 ad?..

Awesome, thanks! And yeah the up next feature is good. But I still think that the old one was better.

Up Next is so good, I love that you can decide what's coming next in advance and not have to keep goign back to change the song. :happy:

If anyone doesn't like how the album colors look on most albums, you can remove the custm colors in the general preferences: "Use custom colors for open albums, movies, etc."
You can get back sorting by artist/release year as mentioned above
And if you want the sidebar back you can do that in the menu bar's view menu (windows users need to press alt before seeing the menu bar)

I quite like it, but I'd hoped for a more extensive rewrite instead of a reskinning, you can find lots of things that look old and unpolished, like the view options window window.

I like it. For the first few seconds after the update I was confused as to where the tracklists were but after that, it's pretty awesome. I like it better than v10.

I really like the new iTunes. I love how the album covers match the design when you click on them! Everything's so pretty. Here are some of my favorites:

Spoiler


Even though I don't like how they removed some useful features, for example you can't see the length of the albums anymore, or how many albums you have in total. Also the feature to find duplicates. Oh well.

I don't know why yours is different, but the one with the black background was because the guy has a version of the cover with a big black boarder (the album art you see on Spotify).

Edit: I think my favourite ones are Awesome as Fuck, Sum 41's Underclass Hero & Does This Look Infected, and The Foo Fighters' Wasting Light.

iTunes - View - Show Status Bar :)

Didn't expect it to be so different, pretty confusing if I say so myself lol
I don't like the new search feature, you have to go through all those hoops just to listen to the song you want.
Plus, they don't show the album artwork like they used to, unless you search it and go on the artist in question's page. Plus, it added all of my previous purchases from iTunes so I had to redelete those, and that wasted a good half hour of my time.

Edit- just looked at the album section and the colour co-ordination looks pretty cool, especially on American Idiot and Uno.

Quick question, I didn't buy Uno from iTunes. What does it look like then? I have the album artwork with it.

I am not a huge fan, I don't like the design much.

I am mad they removed the black grid theme and it's just white, which doesn't fit my computer, because EVERYTHING on my computer is black. Perhaps they'll reintroduce it later on again.

The only thing I really like about it, is the 'next up' option, that's really cool.

You've actually just hidden all your previous purchases from your iTunes account, while you could have gone to the menu bar (alt on Windows) and clicked "Hide music in the cloud".

Oh and the colors for albums are picked by a computer algorithm, if you used a cover version with slightly more or less color saturation for example it may pick different main colors because of that.
My Awesome As Fuck colors are actually white on black, it didn't use the pink in the cover.

You can't make the album covers/squares bigger either like you could with the old one.
