Have any of you noticed the change this week in the "Just Added" section of iTunes? To briefly explain, go to "Just Added" and try to follow your favorite genre from pages 1-10. I.e., select "Blues" and try to go to page 2. You will find that, although the drop down menu says you're still in the "Blues" section, the albums on page 2 represent all genres. You will also find that page 2 on every genre is the same page. This is a serious error. I have emailed tech support who wrote me back and said the iTunes engineers made this change so customers could more easily find what they were looking for. If you are a serious music collector as I am, please email tech support and voice your concerns. It is now almost impossible to find new material in each genre as all albums beyond page one in each genre do not represent that genre. These so-called "engineers" have made a serious mistake in my opinion. Itunes was "almost perfect" before this change.

    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.

    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.
