    So, in WP7, if you play all music, it'll shuffle all songs in your collection. However, if you play an album, it'll keep shuffle off, in order to play that album in order.

    In WP8, Play All Music turns shuffle on properly. When you play an album though, shuffle stays on.

    Maybe it's not necessarily a bug, maybe that's the intended result, but if it is, it's really stupid and extremely annoying.

    Also annoying is the fact that in WP7, if you have artist picture showing on your lockscreen, it'll show SOMETHING even if the artist you're playing doesn't have any art. In WP8 it just shows a gray gradient if that is the case.

    Really? I remember like a pink gradient in WP7.

    Now that you mention it, you're right on that one. Still, the gray just makes it look bland. It needs something more than that.

    If the artist doesn't have a picture, it should use the lock screen image instead and not have a blank "gray" or "pink" gradient at all.

    Yeah, that's what I would prefer.

    In WP7 there wasn't an option to shuffle an album songs, that might be the way they found to implement that. Not the best way, I would say.

    You can always play the first song of an album and it'll play with shuffle off. (At least in WP7)

    Zune color brand is pink/orange. Xbox Music color brand is gray/green.
