So you have two option when streaming an album

-Add to music
-Make available offline

For some reason my albums that I added to music, all were in my collection, now they are all gone?

is this a bug? Do I have to do something to make them appear again? btw on a side note, I don't get the option to put them back in (they say they are already there)

Edit: Ok maybe it does give me the option to add to my music again.

Edit #2: So I tried to "re add" the albums and they will not show up in my music library?

what the heck is going on.

Where is that option found?

not in the music section in settings?

In the My Music tab, right below the recently added row, there's a dropdown button. It either says Artists, Songs, Albums, etc. Press it and at the bottom there's the option Show Music Available Offline. If it's toggled on, you'll only see music that is saved to your device. Turning that off shows your entire iCloud library.
