Has anyone else had this happen to them?
Since I upgraded, Music crashes constantly. Sometimes on startup of the app, its already crashed! So I'm left frustrated and annoyed as I can't figure out what the problem might be, except the OS upgrade.

I have iTunes Match. On my new M1 MBA, it won't download my library from the cloud. Either sits there telling me it's loading my library, but isn't.. or doesn't say/do anything at all. Has downloaded about 5 albums and dead stop. Clearly something's ****y. No issues on my iMac but my library was already present before upgrading to Big Sur, and of course it's not M1-based, if that even has anything to do with it.
