With the new version of store available trough leaked versions of Blue, Winbeta managed to get their hands on a couple of screenshots of new Xbox Music app. It's in the store, but cannot be downloaded yet.
I think it actually looks usable now, this could actually be THE update we were all waiting for :) Looking forward to 26th of June.

Check it out:

This is a preview and there are about six months between now and release. Stop judging based on leaked pre-preview screenshots.

It would look more professional if they went with a light color scheme, like the Zune software.

I think it's going with the Xbox One dark theme.

Wow! A handful of screenshots of pre-release software! I'm going to form a complete opinion about the application from this alone!

Is what a severely brain damaged person would say.

Let people have their fun, they have nothing else to judge off at the moment. Besides, it's all personal interpretation. From what I see in the shots, it will easily be more usable than what exists now for searching and adding results to playlists, at least from those shots. Will need to see the right-click context menu for selected songs.

It's MILES ahead of what the current one is.... looks great (so far)... but needs a lot more.

Also, I really hope we can sync to devices from WITHIN the app! and be able to sort by what's synced and not, and by 'heart' ratings (like Zune used to allow). Currently, the heart ratings on WP8 Xbox Music are pointless since they don't do anything anymore... whereas with Zune they were useful.

Better but you're not done yet Microsoft. Still looks half baked.

I'm liking the new xbone color scheme. That's going to look good on a tablet.
