I have a huge library, and all i gotta do it tap the first letter of the band name and it'll scroll right down to the band's folder. (When i've entered the band's folder, i tap the first letter of the SONG im trying to find) So no im 100% ok with the browsing screen.  
 
good to know, I didn't know you could skip by pressing a letter on the keyboard, thanks!

@Stackboy: @Ahmad_Metallic: 
 
I have been using a variety of music from my library.  Trying to avoid the techno/rave music since it has a continuous beat and that seems like cheating.  But with the art style it probably flows best with what the designers envisioned.  I have found some hip-hop/rap to work great and some rock to be excellent as well.  I love it when everything comes together and you find a song you love to listen to that works very well with the game.  A couple of Eagles of Death Metal songs did just that!  
 
When you have been alive for  a while and have your weapons upgraded pretty high it reminds me a lot of  Raiden Project.  The powerful magnetic weapon you could upgrade had this crazy beam and just looked awesome in that game, in Beat Hazard the same massive beam can occur its sweet.
 
Platform wise, the PC is easily better for many reasons ::  1) the xbox 360 controls are non-intuitive and border awful.  Using the thumbstick to move is great, but having to push the other in the direction you want to fire sucks.  They should have made it so you could use a trigger to fire and use the thumbstick just to aim.  2)  getting music on to the 360's hdd is a pain in the ass.  And you can't just import individual songs, you have to rip entire cds, even with the USB thumbstick hdd update.

Has anyone tried it on windows 7?  My friend got it for his computer and it crashes whenever he plays, can't even make it through a song.  I have XP SP3.
 
I really like how you have to build up the volume, I wish you didn't start with the volume being louder as you level.  I think its a great incentive to push your limits and go as long as you can without dying, because you want to hear the music you selected.

@Tuggah:   I've played rounds on Port Valdez where the defenders were shot down, and then the Attackers stole the apache screwing over the defenders the rest of the round.  Part of that was the team sucking, but it can be really frustrating.  Isla Innocentes can be a real pain too.  Especially when snipers stay on the first island after the first base is taken and just snipe/mortar you while helicopters hover far away so they can see rockets coming at you and dodge.  There is no way to take out anything, you just die constantly at your own spawns.
 
On a side note, has anyone else died when spawning because you can't shoot or do anything for a second or 3.  Why haven't they addressed this issue?

Why are there not better anti-aircraft weapons?  On Port Valdez, rush mode, the apache is unstoppable if the right pilot is in it.  You will never lock on and never hit them enough with the few machine guns scattered around.  They need to balance this.  Better lock-on rockets or something.
