    we all know the pathetic xbox music we get with 8.1
    why ? because it's slowwww and buggy and missing album art and missing artist background

    so how to enhance or music experience ?

    1 download music hub tile app
    Music Hub Tile | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (India)

    this app will bring back the old music hub we all know :D
    it pins tile on the start screen which opens the music hub and the tile is not free
    if you dont want to spend money you can open the app itself and then open music hub from there :)

    2 download MPA tool
    MPAtool | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    with this app you can all artist backgrounds and arlbum arts of your choice :D
    it even shows artist in lock screen yay
    the app will say this does not works with 8.1 but actually it does
    this app works with old music hub and guess what ? we got it back in step 1

    3 profit ????

    4 enjoy your superfast music hub and nifty looking artist background in player and lock screen

    old music hub loads my music library of 400 songs in no time

    i will upload all the photos in some photo sharing hub ok :)

    notes - give the MPA tool some days at first it will show artist in lock screen sometimes only but use it regularly and it will be all fine
    MPA tool may say not works for 8.1 just ignore it
    RATE MPA tool please it's great :)

    let me know in the comments what you think

    I personally don't get why all the hate for Xbox music. Sure the loading process is nuts, but once done I'm able to browse through the app pretty fast. ~1000 songs in a second on my 720. Don't care much about album art, as mostly I listen to songs on my laptop or while traveling I simultaneously browse the net on the phone.

    Edit: it sucks balls after yesterdays/todays update
