    This is rediculous. If something is "all new" we should at least have the option of selecting more views; not fewer! My default view was always the song list sorted by date added (or play count) with the album art across the top. All this release did was give us more ways of viewing items in a redundant fashion. It seems like the player that used to be the leader is now striving to become like those that used to be inferior. I applaud iTunes efforts to become a lowly conformist.

    Itunes 11.0.3  Problem Solved  - Album Covers are back in under Songs View


    Select Songs View


    Go to View -> View Options

    1) select Sort by Album

    2) Check Show Artwork

    3) Check Always Show

    4) you can also fiddle with artwork size


    Thank you Apple for fixing this... it makes using iTunes much easier (again).

    Holy crap! Thanks for posting that, bejohnson. I confirmed that the View Options also allow you to show the Artwork when working with a playlist. This is fantastic. Thank you, Apple!

    This is great thanks for this helpful information bejohnson, not having album artwork viewable in list view has been driving me CRAZY. Only thing is I really wish it was exactly how it used to be and show the album artwork in the Library column so that when you click on the track in the list view it shows up on the opposide side and doesn't widen the rows, now that they have it the new way because of the size of the artwork it makes the rows really big and now it kind of ruins the whole way list view should look where they are all together in small rows.... Come on iTunes can't you plleassee just put it back how it used to be!!!!?????  The only reason I upgrated to this dumb new version is because my new iphone won't link with the old software so I was forced to upgrate and I really, really, really hate it!!  List view is horrible now.

    You can right-click on the artwork and change the size. Also, since you have artist and album listed right next to the artwork, you can remove those columns from your view. I think it gives a cleaner, more compact view that way than it used to.
