There are many people who are dissappointed on this new web player layout.
the most dissapointing thing is that last.fm is not connected anymore. i read it somewhere that they found it "a low usage" but it was one of the main reasons we have last.fm as a premium user.
we cannot download the app all the time. web player was so useful and now the new layout makes it regret our decision about it.
