@MasterPie: The ad supported stuff doesn't work for me on my laptop, Lumia or, most surprising, Xbox. Interesting to hear that it's working on your tablet, but that just confuses me even more. That seems to indicate it's not me being dumb with the interface, but that the service is hit or miss somehow.
Nothing about Xbox Music makes sense to me. In it's current shape it has to be a miserable failure. I'd suspect that not only are they failing to acquire new users, but existing (i.e. Zune Pass) customers would likely be going elsewhere as well.
I want this service to work, so I'm not trying to be like many of our resident trolls, but honestly, this service right now is literally unusable. WTH?
