Xbox Music Library

So, I don't really understand Xbox Music. After a clean install of Windows 8, I opened Xbox Music, clicked on My Music. It showed 106 albums, none of which are mine as far as I can tell. Later I added my music drive to the Music library, but it still shows the same 106 albums. I have over 22,000 songs; none of them show up in Xbox Music. Very confusing.

Well, after about a half an hour it decided to update. Still seems like a mess. I can't tell sometimes which are songs on the Xbox Music Store and which are on my own hard drive. Seems like everything is just mixed together without any reason.

Like I wrote the other day:

My favorite feature is "Now Playing", which comes up first thing instead of my music collection which is off screen to its left in the scroll, which not only displays music that isn't playing, but music that does not belong to me, music that I will never own or even sample, music that has never played and never will be played. A close second is "All Music" to its right, which doesn't contain any of my music, but just a bunch more ads I don't care about. Last but not least is "Top Music", to the right of "All Music", with a bunch more ads it had to download that I don't care about.

It really is like Microsoft set out to design the exact opposite of what I want. It is just so very wrong to its core.

ETA: I just realized I may have given the impression that I'm actually try to use Windows 8. I am not. I'm describing my experience running it in a VM and adding some music files from my Windows 7 system to it. I would never install Windows 8 for real.
