    Can someone post a screenshot of the Albums view in Sierra's iTunes? I want to know if it is the same as prior versions or if the albums are blown up like in the iOS 10 Music app.

    They're slightly different, mainly minus the colour palettes (☹️) but with retina artwork and dedicated play buttons

    Thanks for the reply.

    I'm really disappointed with the direction Apple is taking its Music apps this year.

    There is no reason for the album art to be that large. I hope that they revert the decision to make things so big, or at least add an option to make them smaller (like that'll ever happen).

    Someone mentioned the blurring found in older version prevented the app from displaying album art in higher resolutions, seems Apple didn't find the blurry album art insert very appealing.

    That actually seems much preferable to how it is currently. Plus, it looks like they're finally allowing for a sensible minimum column width (something that should really be configurable in the first place)? iTunes 12.4 can be ridiculous in that regard:

    All in all, Apple seem to be moving in the right direction with the most recent changes to iTunes. The iOS app being another matter with that peculiar choice in font size.

    I really like it! In general itunes is so fast and smooth in Sierra. I love big album art.
