I would like the search results to show up as in the old UI-design. The new UI-design is horrible, beside the point that Spotify is starting to look more and more like iTunes for no good reason.
It all comes down to wasted screen real estate. First of all the new search is wasting space on the sides while simultaneously truncating Artist name and album name. The new search also wastes roughly half of my screen before the search results come. This leads to unnecessary scrolling and I am using an 1920x1200 display!, this must be even more irritating on smaller resolution displays.
So I guess my idea is that Spotify needs to think in terms of screen real estate. The primary goal needs to be to present as much information as possible in one screen. The old UI did a perfect job for this. There where clear lists and still album art to see what was going on. It also had its own distinct look and feel it felt genuine in some seance. Copying the look and feel of iTunes feels second class somehow, like Spotify desperately tries to be something else. But there is so much other aspects the needs to be fixed with Spotify then the look and feel of its UI.

Since this idea has been posted 2-3 major face lifts ago, this idea will be closed and linked to a newer idea focusing on the current Design:
