Among all the bell n whistles of wp8.1 preview for developers Xbox music app was a bitter experience .for me the former music app was a bit better . It didn't need an overhaul.
Today while browsing through the growing app store I came across a fun alternative in the form of "niqi music player".
That interface is pretty simple . Somewhat Similar to the android music player . Give it a try. It ll be a good option till Microsoft team figures out another badge on their colour along side Cortana n notification centre.
