Haha. While it's true that this is a 'First World Problem', your product is designed for 'First World' people, so problems like these are going to be taken kinda seriously by most people.
I for one don't mind it, but, as DervishD said, album art makes it easier to navigate the library. Not to mention it looks more professional, especially for those of us (myself included) who paid for it. At the moment, I feel as if I'm using a buggy stock music player, as DVC doesn't work properly either (for me at least)
I hope you guys fix the problem soon, but I think the problem is more of Poweramp's fault instead of Google's, otherwise other music players would have a similar issue.
