    The album list view is now the artist's tab.

    Can't do it by Album. Album view is just a grid now until you click on one, then a slider opens with info and song list for that Album.

    This is the exact question that I came here to ask.

     

    I want to be able to see any details that I choose while I'm in a particular album (Just I used to with iTunes 10), but now I can't.

     

    For instance, since iTunes Match has a such a slap-hazard way of matching songs, it's helpful to see whether the track I'm listening to is a CD Rip, an MP3 or an AAC file, now the only way to see these details it to leave the album and go to the song view.

    I'm sorely missing the Album List view. I found it especially useful for managing Playlists. The album art separated the albums visually to make it much faster to navigate. Definitely much more visually appealing than endless columns of bland text. Why on earth did they choose to remove so much functionality? Out of the 10 or so tasks I do every day with iTunes, 9 of them are more cumbersome and 1 of them is better. Out of those 9, losing this view entirely is the most painful.

    Click on 'Songs' at the top of the window, and then click on 'Album' in the resulting window. And voilà!

    Yup I agree it's a pain not to be able to see the album art any more (I miss it too!), but at least if you sort Songs by Album, they appear listed in albums, even though without the art to make them more easily identifiable.

    The real beauty of the album list view was that it could be used with a playlist without affecting the sort order. Whith a playlist full of albums,you could see the tracks of each album clustered together next to an image of the album art. That made it visually appealing and provided far more information more quickly to the user than a long list of bland text.

    This isn't a big issue for me. I almost always had album art turned off. I think it's distracting having a bunch of big blocks pictures in the middle of my music. And let's not even discuss the music I don't have art for, it's just that big music note,... very annoying and distracting.

    Having the album art in the list view has been extremly helpful for me, I want it back.  Among other reasons (sited in other posts) it rapidly identifies albums which iTunes should have identified as a compilation but didn't on import - so that it can be fixed it after import.

     

    Apple - Please bring back the Album/List View with artwork- I never used any other view and what you have now is considerably less functional than before.

    To me, the list view with the album covers visible was the best and main feature of iTunes. I'm really disappointed by this "all new" release.
