Too bad the “artists” are typically pop crap when they feature stuff. I miss the 90s when interesting music could be mainstream enough

That’s nice but it’s too bad that spatial audio sucks.
Not really. It depends for who.
Some artists have great engineers, and some don't for spatial audio.

And maybe one day they will release a version of Music app for macOS that will be smooth, bug free, well thought out and intuitive.

But it will take a long time and we will have to wait for some product managers to retire.

I prefer to discover music on Youtube than to wait for the 2-3 seconds of latency when I change the music or change the progression. (Mac Mini M1 with AirPods Pro).

Really, the "Next Song" action is more quick on Youtube with a webpage and a video player than the buggy macOS Music app.

Yes. Bands like primus and RATM on mtv events. James addiction, etc. Push the boundaries to expand music.

I wish Apple would buy Patreon, or something to that degree. So many artists release music there that‘s not in the Apple Music library, and it’s a huge pain to ever access it.

Or, ya know, let us import Music into our library without a PC or Mac.

^THIS. I recently had to add a single mp3 for an automation at work and forgot what a pain it was and that I couldn’t simple airdrop it to my iPad and have it work.
