Hi Igorin,
Sorry you feel that way. We've gotten a lot of positive feedback from other users (and obviously some negative feedback as well) but I hope you can take some time with the new design and find things you like about it as well.

Thanks,
Zac

Well, Zac, it's been almost a week and I still hate it with all my guts. Sorry, but this is, in my opinion, one of the worst page redesigns I have EVER seen. But my guess is that our opinion is worth less than crap to the big guys over at Rovi.
P.S.: Btw, my opinion has, in fact, got worse every time I have come back to the site. This site is, sincerely, appallingly bad.

Opinions are valuable to us, which is one reason we ask for your feedback here. We listen to many opinions and take them into consideration. Big changes in any site with a large following will be unpopular to some folks, and other people will like the changes. We do the best we can.

Unless you go back to what worked, I will no longer use this site, or recommend it to anyone else. This is really REALLY lame!

It sucks!! Go back to the way it was. It was much easier to read. At least when you looked something up you could actually find the answer you're looking for. I use this site for research. Now I've got to find a different site to use!! This is NOT user friendly any more!!

I agree it sucks. I used allmusic.com for many years to find out who wrote a song. Today I came to find out who actually wrote "Hey Joe" that Hendrix made famous. I haven't figured out an easy way to do this. Sucks.

The page that was the best on the old, good site, was after you searched for a song, the list of people who recorded the song, as well as the author, was displayed.

Is there a way to find such a page now?

Billy Roberts wrote that song. I had to Search for Jimi Hendrix, then click on the songs tab, then click on the song, then pick an album that they show it's on , then hope that the writer is listed. I think they need a couple more steps to go thru!! :((

There used to be information on both Sonny Boy Williamsons.. now there is only a biography for one. THE OLD ALLMUSIC.COM WAS SUPERIOR. BRING IT BACK PLEASE!

Hi CFsleepyLAgoon,
We do still have bios for both:

Sonny Boy Williamson #1: http://www.allmusic.com/artist/sonny-...

Sonny Boy Williamson #2: http://www.allmusic.com/artist/sonny-...

Is this not what you are seeing?

Please let us know,
Zac

Another thing..at least before even if you mis-spelled something, you still got a list of potential options to choose from. Not now!! All Music...you need to re-think your "Improved" site, because it's taking me hours to find what I'm looking for and that is not a good use of my time!!

I also have been a frequent visitor to your site and I do not like this new design either. The old design had more detailed info and it was easier to navigate through. For example, the old design would list the various editions an album was issued in. i.e. bonus tracks, deluxe, etc.

Where's that?

Hi Music fan,

When you look up an album page, near the top there's a tab that says "releases." There, you can find the various editions. Here's an example:
