    I have a specific example of a system wide issue I'm having with Apple Music on iTunes.

    The facts:
    -I have iTunes Match and the 3 month trial of Apple Music currently
    -I have previously "matched" Alice In Chains - Nothing Safe/The Best of
    -This is a greatest hits album with the songs "I Stay Away" and "No Excuses" from their Jar of Flies Album
    -I "added" Jar of Flies to my Apple Music collection (ie. didn't purchase)
    -Apple Music added just the 5 other songs to my iTunes collection
    -I click on "show complete album" and attempt to "add all songs" to my Apple Music library
    -iTunes refuses to actually add "I Stay Away" and "No Excuses"

    So, it appears it already sees the greatest hits album as having these songs in my collection and doesn't want to add a second version of the same song to my collection.

    Regardless of what it sees, I want to be able to just play the entire album without having to effectively make a playlist to add in the two albums to make the correct Jar of Flies album.

    Again, this is an example, I have many instances of this issue throughout my collection and I have yet to find a resolution.

    Does anyone have any pointers on how to correct?

    From what people have been saying, this seems to be an issue that already existed with iTunes Match. I can't really think of a workaround other than playlists.

    Hate to say it, but Spotify looks more and more appealing to me. I love iTunes Match and have been content for years using a combo of Match & Spotify. Apple Music has too many bugs to be worth my $$.
