Why is this an Apple-picked list of 5 mainstream bands that Apple loves and not live tours from the bands you personally listen to on Apple Music?

Another feature that will set Apple Music apart, which is great. But Apple continues to ignore fundamental features like crossfade, EQ, performance improvements, etc. etc. that users have been asking for years at this point.

Obligatory: Hopefully iOS 17 shall pave the way for better AM and Siri experiences.

Big bands in capital cities don’t need any extra promotion. It’s the small bands in small town with small door prices that are on my playlists I’m interested in hearing about.

This doesn’t set Apple Music apart. Spotify has had this feature for years. The other month I used it to learn about and buy a Tomorrow X Together concert ticket. I’m guessing Spotify got a cut of the sale.

Either way, custom EQ is a badly lacking feature. I know Apple want to finely tune our listening experience, but sometimes I just want that Xtra Bass (read: extreme bass) feature that Sony offers.

Hey Apple...
Instead of adding features and features, how about fixing the core functionality of the music app?
Like tracks not starting, lag, errors, missing album in search and a way to actually discover new music based on your taste?
For real...
