I recently cancelld my premium subscription, and since then I've been suffering from a new UI for the spotify web player. This UI sucks to say the least. It also opens URLs through "open.spotify.com" instead of "play.spotify.com" and whenever I try to go to play.spotify - I'm redirected to open.spotify.
The reason I hate open.spotify is because there are an insane amount of limitations here. There is no way for me to access web player settings even. I've attached screenshots of my account page and the brose page respectively.
I've also noticed that this is only a problem on Chrome. I tried on IE and it worked just fine when I went to play.spotify.com. This problem has persisted across several computers, and I've observed the same computers going to play.spotify.com on different accounts. It's literally restricted to my account on Google Chrome.
Any help reverting back to Play.spotify.com is much appreciated.

Time to ditch my premium membership. With the Spotify desktop app having issues opening often and this downgraded webplayer, what is the purpose of paying for a service that I am not receiving?
Alright, that's it. I was pissed off when they forced the new player on us, which is a terrible UI that's unfit for desktops and doesn't even show partial albums (when you have some songs from an album, but not the whole album saved) under "Albums", but I was willing to stick around as long as the User Agent trick worked to get the old player back. Now that this method has been killed, I'm never using Spotify again.
