    OMG, the new "My Music" is awful! The user experience can be best described as torture! It's no longer MY music, it's feels like more like a HOSTILE music app on MY device and a MAD A.I. tells you what YOU HAVE TO LISTEN.

    Hey Apple, I am the user here (DJ on my device) and not a mindless pawn! Thanks for ruining that experience!

    But the worst: where did the "horizontal album cover view" go??? The 8.4 update basically destroyed the most convenient way to browse through your purchased albums on your iPhone. :mad::mad::mad:

    I don't need suggestions (up-selling) or radio or whatever. I'm not interested in that!
    I don't care about "trending searches" or "new artist".
    I don't want to watch exclusive videos e.g. from Eminem (because I bought some of his albums years ago)
    I don't want to "share" or "Start Station" a song. I just want to play it!
    I am an individual! God damn it! :mad:
    I hate all that new bullshít on the new over-enginnered and cluttered GUI! :mad:

    I just want is to listen to my albums that I bought and love, without clicking trillion times through weird menus just to find the right album/song or to get to a specific spot in a song!!!

    I just want a *silly* music player app! ;)

    I just want to crank up the volume in the player – without accidentally clicking the airplay button!!!! WTF!!!!

    Big disappointment here. :( I wish there was a button to turn this new :apple: MUSIC cráp off for good and have just a normal music player again – without all the overhead that Apple and the desperate music industry forces on you. :mad:

    It looks like the classic iPod is an attractive device again for JUST LISTENING to your music! :(

    The first thing I did was turn off Apple Music, which you can do under Music in Settings.

    Best feature of 8.4 in my opinion.

    I don't know that I would say that it's torture per-say but it definitely needs more work. They're trying to incorporate too much into this initial launch and it shows.
