    yep very true, although the album part aside, itunes 11 does look clean

    yea, exactly that's what i'm saying, the lower left coner! lol

    yeah, this is really troubling for me. i hope the removal is just temporal.

    ok, now just out of curiosity because i'm not a very active user of this apple support communities, but does anyone know that if by any chance someone works at apple would read this? or how else would all those complaints get to apple?

    I don't really know, but I would guess if enough people complain about this they at least have to notice (though that doesn't necessarily mean they'll solve the problem). I'm clicking on "I have this problem too" on threads related to this issue, and liking individual posts. I don't know if that helps, but it's the only thing I can think of.


    Please, Apple, solve this!

    ok cool i think i will be doing the same too just to get some attention on this then, thanks!

    Yeah, this is an absolutely devastating loss for me. I exclusively use the song list view, and have since I started using iTunes nearly 7 years ago. I need the text information -- the release date, genre, bit rate, etc -- along with the cover art. It's frankly insulting that they would think removing an optional sidebar artwork preview window would be acceptable. Even more of a joke is the 25px wide album cover in the cluttered mess of a display bar along the top. I can't tell if this entire release is an early April Fool's joke, it's so bad. The album cover browser they seem to be forcing down our throats is so clunky, unorganized, unintuitive, and especially laggy when scrolling that even if it was nice to look at (it's not), it's practically unusable and impractical for efficiently browsing a music library unless you have something like 20 albums total.


    My temporary solution has been to open the album cover popup player, shrink it down to size, and put it in the bottom left corner of the app for the time being. But if the next patch doesn't re-add the option to display cover art in list view, I'm absolutely going to being looking for a better replacement music player.

    so true, for people like me who have like 60k+songs this new version of itunes is somewhat inefficient.

    and i was doing exactly like what you did!!! click on the small pathetic album icon and then scale it to abour 500x500 or perhaps larger, and I ALSO placed it at the bottom left corner LOLLLL, i need the cover art not only to make more easy for me recognize the song's being played, but i'd like clear image, so if after i downloaded an album i can see the image and then edit it with other images i found online.


    well, to me, the only selling point of this itunes 11:

    1. the "play next"

    2. the beautiful intergrated album view


    play next is rubbish in my opinion, to have songs shuffled is to have myself surpreised, i'm not gonna sit here and eidt what's gonna play next, this is definitely a fail


    as for the album view, it's beaituful, you see the nice intergrated background of the album art, and sometimes you see different color or the text of the names of the songs and ect, but again, eye candy, it would be very cool if it is in the mini player

    In artist view there are large graphics of covers to the left. Then there is another area to the left of that with smaller images. I wish we could eliminate that one. Maybe we can. But you could search the album you want in Artist view and each album's cover art is there with the info.

    I hate it when Apple arbitrarily removes a feature I use; not being able to see album art to the left of my songs list is annoying as ****.


    Does anyone at Apple have a modicum of sense when it comes to usability, or is it more concerned with making things look pretty?
