I must be going senile I thought that is how it worked from day one? You
can of cause browse your way through the music tree anyway you want
something the old interface never allowed. So you could go Artist->Dire
Straits->Genre->Live or Genres->Classic Rock->Ratings->8 Stars or
Compilations->Albums->Now 56 or ...

The buttonlist search works well for me but that is something that could
be done better. I'm open to sensible ideas :)

There was only a few tweaks to the UI and the streaming radio stuff
added. I hope I'm wrong but Myth has a feeling of a project in the death
throws to me seems like the remaining devs have lost interest so doubt
there will be much more progress made to MythMusic. Doesn't help that
two of the most prolific devs Mark and Robert have left :(

Do you want your money back :)
