    So far i'm really enjoying Apple Music over Spotify because of the weird taste in music that i've developed over the years. The thing that bothers me the most is that i'm unable to navigate to an artist instantaneously to check out other music that they have. I'm experiencing this in both iTunes on El Capitan and on iOS10.

    The question is, am i the only one thats getting worked up about this fact?

    Not sure what you mean. If you click on the artist's name (in red, below the album title), you go to their page:

    In the album view. Sorry, I see now that you're on iOS 10, I'm on 9.3.2.

    I'm not sure if the red artist text is a link in iOS 10 or not. Man, they really made the whole thing ugly in the new version!

    It's not clickable. Became really useless this way. But on El Capitan it's not different, i need to perform a search if i want more music from that artist.

    Ok, well iOS 10 is only in its first beta, so don't count on it staying that way.

    Read the release notes in Feedback Assistant or on the Developer or AppleSeed page.

    And this is helpful how? I know it's not finished but i'm only asking if i'm the only one annoyed by this. Especially on El Capitan.

    Click on the Artist (playing or not playing) in a playlist and it goes right to their home page.

    I'm not using playlists, i save entire albums. From that album i want to navigate to the artist instantaneously like you do with your playlists. For iOS10b2 they've fixed

    From an album click on the artist name and you are "instantaneously" taken to the homepage.

    Also if you have downloaded to iTunes use Go to Artist. Also using the Menu Bar/Song/Go To/Go To Artist

    What version of iTunes are you running? Again, I'm not having any problems finding this.

    EDIT: To the best of my memory it has been this same way for at least several versions of iTunes.
