For example, imagine that I have three albums in my playlist. They are not sorted by artist, album, or year. Instead they are sorted by the order in which I want to listen to them, which happens to not be in alphabetical or any other order, other than - I wanna hear this one, that one, and then that one. If you view this playlist in "List" view, my albums are correctly sorted in the order I want. However, if I change it to "Grid" or "Artist List" so I can see some artwork, my three albums are now resorted for me without my asking. (by title, artist, genre, year or rating) They need to add Sort Order!
I haven't seen anyone address this shortcoming. Maybe by clearly laying it out here, more forces will join my cause. And yes, I have reported this feature request to Apple.

It's showing the "Column Browser" and this can be turned on or off under the View menu.

I totally agree. No way that this is an improvement.

No list view with artwork, album views that seemingly don't show the transition of songs being played, no cover flow, no resizeable artwork, minuscule fonts on large screens...
In all, virtually ZERO improvements over the previous version, which runs absolutely fine on my iMac with no lags, crashes or bugs whatsoever - I am glad I didn't "upgrade" to it, and won't do that unless I am absolutely forced to.
p.s.: By the way, how come we can't even post anything via Safari on this website? I had to resort to Firefox to post this very comment!!!
