iTunes 11 and Album Background Colours

While iTunes 11 continues to frustrate some people (especially myself) with the removal of the Coverflow (oh my god.. HOW COULD APPLE DO THAT !!)… some parts are pretty interesting..

Under album view, the colour of the background actually corresponds rather intelligently (creepily..) to the colour of your album art covers.. AMAZING.. iTunes 11 changes the background color of the display window depending on album artwork !!

For example, look at Linda’s latest album.. Pink in nature and somehow the whole album background colour is also pink.
