I like the classic soundcloud and it works best for me because it is very clear.
The new soundcloud design looks quite confusing and overloaded in my opinion.
The change from soundclouds classic design to the new design reminds me a bit of what myspace did a few years ago.
Getting used to something that you like working with isn`t a bad thing.
Any change in a known and loved environment should be subtle. A massive change – even with good intetions in mind – also causes chaos and offends people as a side effect.
