Lots of complaints about the new Deezer design, with the admins saying they would tell the devs, but not a single change in over 2 months. Now we can't even switch back to the old design. Why is that? Obviously Deezer is not very responsive to verbal feedback. I wonder how responsive they would be if people cancelled their subscriptions?

Yeah, an estimation of when we might get the previous design (or at least the option to switch) back would be nice, thank you.
The main thing I dont like about the new interface is the list of My Albums - it used to be a pop out side bar and it would keep the position in the list that you've scrolled to. Now you have to browse to it as a separate page and if you scroll right to the bottom of your album list, click on an album then go back, it goes back to the top of the list which is really frustraing! Dont think Ive explained that well. Also the big "now playing" square at the bottom left has been replaced by a miniscule icon at the bottom right that you can barely see. If the old version becomes available again, Ill definitely be swapping back.
Just want to add that the lack of the cover art is a major negative for me using Deezer.

Coming from Google Music (which showed the cover art) this is tough pill to swallow. I am more of a "visual person." I usually scroll through my playlists looking for an album cover not reading the text.

Unfortunately, I do not see the way to disable the new look in the Deezer Labs page, so I assume this is no longer available.

I do see that if I click :"Queue" in the player it brings up my playlist and shows the cover art next to the tracks, which is how I am used to it. This works.
I really do not like the new design. The most frustrating part is that I am not allowed to go back to the old design. Please allow me to use the old design as I much prefer that layout. The new design is very frustrating to me, I HATE IT.
Hi, in this new version I can't preview a song pressing the play button without release. In the old version there was this feature. Can you reintegrate this?

"Give the opportunity to switch between the old and the new design," according to Google Translate. I agree!
Hello, Deezer Team!

I have a lot of questions to your UX lead. How can you release that?! I try to find some useful changes but I can't! There is list of UX error, that I see today:

  1. So loooooong player bar at the bottom. Really, it's look like gas pedal stay on it's normal place and brake one moved to passenger side. You broke visual context of this panel. And yes,now we can read full name of track. But you broke usability of main function.
  2. You separate controls from old panel and placed it on different sides of screen. Do you know that almost people use widescreen monitor? I must do "Zorro sign" if I want to make my standard steps.
  3. Placed Share button only in song context menu... Perfect. Now, If I want to share something from my flow, I will lose current state of my page.
  4. Duplicate link to Applications: in left menu aaaand in right area too! A clicked on My Music item, why it looks like HomeScreen with all possible links on it?
  5. Smallest album icon. It's hard quest to understand cover of what album placed there. I fixed my eyes not long ago. Please, don't break it!
Please, be more careful with UX, don't make troubles to your users.

@sheitara , well said with a nice touch of humor!
No switch back --> bye, Deezer. Forget about the fish.
