This is an overhaul of the iTunes concept?

I don't think so. When reactivating the sidebar everything is back to normal except from the absent iTunes DJ, Cover zoom and some graphical tweaks (The coloring based on the album covers is very sexy tough) I cant' see the big deal.

Do I miss something?

Ultimately a nice refresh for the aging iTunes, however still seems to be slow and sluggish on Windows. Looking forward to a Spotify type service from iTunes. I prefer to flexibility of Spotify over paying for individual songs but I really want to get back fully into the Apple ecosystem. When are we likely to be able to expect a service like this from Apple?

To what? iTunes seems like a good name to me. Changing it to just "Music" seems like it could work or make Apple look incredibly arrogant.

To what? iMedia? iHub? Unless you can come up with a name that doesn't suck, it would seem wiser to just stick with the old iTunes.

Except in this version you cannot do these things because they were removed, e.g. albums view (they only left the grid view and called it "Album view"), cover flow, artwork in songs view, DJ, app icons in Apps list view, etc.

I feel this is a step up . The only setting I miss is the ability to pick the type of view you want (like cover flow, list etc) maybe they will bring it back with a update. For those hating it give it a chance. At the end of the day its just a program.
CHANGE IS GOOD FOR THE SOUL & MIND.
Change like this that doesn't bring much useful and removes features and is there just for the change's sake is very bad and symptomatic of these dumb times we live in.

Anyone able to try the search "moist" in the new iTunes store. Bugs out with loads of SF6 errors on the right screen with a big blank section in the middle and some wierd album/place holder stuff on the left........may just be my mac but if someone else could try.

in case you are wondering - Moist is the band which did the album Silver.

A lot of issues here. Pages won' t load properly and text/images overlapping. A few crashes so far, too.
Anyone else?
Otherwise I like it a lot, just hope the kinks get ironed out soon.

2) Still (sort of ) there under the Artists selection.

3) View > View Options > Sort By Artist

But by re-activating the sidebar you've disabled the new changes! The mini player is overhauled and there is now an up next feature in the player that is neat. The iPhone/iPad sync has been overhauled and so has the iTunes store. However I do miss the album art being removed from the song list view

Add radio station to playlist

Can anyone tell me how to add a radio station to my custom radio station playlist with iTunes 11? Used to have an Advanced tab that would allow that but now I can't find any way to do it.

This is no doubt the coolest feature, the backround color changes for every album, and it seems to work quite well

Also seeing this in the App Store on my iPhones. So it seems like some underlying problem with the "Store" infrastructure?

Digging it overall, especially since viewing the sidebar pretty much brings back the old look for those who want it.

Only two buggaboos are that there's apparently a limit on how skinny you can resize the sidebar, and that there's no artwork at the bottom left anymore. Oh well, not going to cry myself to sleep about it like some others in this thread...

EDIT: And it seems like iTunes doesn't remember if you have shuffle on or off for each playlist, now there's just a global shuffle option.

some of the new features are cool but overall not liking the design. when looking at tabs such as artists, it just looks like a busy, poorly designed web page. not looking forward to having this until itunes 12 comes out...
