    Hi there - first post! I'm really loving the new iTunes 11 extended album view. I'm rediscovering my music and the long-forgotten pleasure of album covers and liner notes (I used to religiously read liner notes and who wrote what and who played what).

    How about we post screenshots of really cool album views? I'll add some when I get home. [Edit: still can't figure out how to add images on here]

    :)

    That's true. Sometimes it makes a difference if you just make slight changes to the album cover though. For example, I just managed to pretty much 'fix' the Neil Young cover I posted before . I think it looks decent now.

    Wonder why the OP isn't posting his? I went through my library a bit more and liked these quite a bit:

    What is the purpose of this? Do most of you have more songs than albums?
    I have 5 songs and 791 full albums. Not enough room.

    I don't see what is wrong, how come you don't like it? I'm curious.

    I don't think it's terrible. I just don't think it's as nice as the others.

    Mostly full albums here too. The purpose is that the new album view is really cool in iTunes. Especially when it's not just trying to just match the album cover, it's also taking into account that there might be some excess borders. So it attempts to make it all look very nice.

    They remind me of the windows 8 ui just without the live titles. Not a bad thing though. I like them!

    And these are a few of my favorites. I really need to organize my music though, it looks like my sock drawer. :eek:

    In light of his passing yesterday, this seems kind of appropriate:

    These look great. I notice that if I improve the image quality of the album cover the rendering looks even better. I'm still trying to figure out how to post images on here (sorry, newbie).
