Hi I totally agree! I have been trying to find the new reggae releases all week and have been really frustrated. I buy or sample new music almost always off of the "Just Added" pages for each week. This new format is useless. Thanks for your post, i couldn't believe that I was the only one searching for music genre specific.

I predict that, if there are many people out there who search for music like I do each week by genre, iTunes will take a big hit in sales as a result of this change. I found some new albums this week on another site, went back into iTunes to search for them and lo and behold they were there. If I had not looked at that other site, I would not have found them on iTunes because they were not in the new music section this week. I am really disappointed by this change. iTunes had a great thing going, but boy they messed it up. Unfortunately, there is no other site that even comes close.

Hey Jazzman I get your point, I went over to the other site, "the big river" and I can search new releases by genre there. I like the system on Itunes that they were using up to last week better also. But if they want to chase customers away, who's to say that you just don't stay over there and buy your music, and when you go the the other site you find that sometimes its cheaper.

The "big river"? I think I know what you are talking about, but please tell me anyway. I have researched all the other download sites this week, and it looks like there's only one that comes close to iTunes. Please tell me the site you are referring to. It's probably Amazon.com, right?

Haha. I was definitely preoccupied when I was on here earlier. Ok, I understand "the big river". I searched that site this week, and it goes even more in depth within the genres than iTunes. I don't think, though, the site can compete with the amount of material iTunes had before the change. Apple has made a BIG mistake here. I just wonder how long it will take them to figure it out. I wonder if there are a lot of serious music collectors that spend a lot of money with iTunes.
