Hi all,
I must be missing something because it can't be like this:

In the My Music section, when I have an artist with, say, 5 albums and 30 songs in the albums, I can't find a way to simply display all the songs I have of that artist: I have to manually enter each if he albums and look for the song, which is absolutely crazy when you have artists with, say, maybe 10 albums and 1 song for each album.

Am I missing something or there is basically no way to see all songs from an artist?

Thanks,

Vanni

If the artist has 1 or 2 albums it will show all songs.

If you have >2 albums, it will collapse into an album list.

You can see all of the songs (and play/shuffle) them by clicking the three dots next to an artist and choosing "Play Next"

This puts all of their songs in up next where you can play each one, or just shuffle them.

Ok...then it's just a colossal design mistake.

Like if i want to browse for a U2 song i have to first go to artis, then put in play all of the songs made by them and then manually search the play cue which maybe has started playing a song i didnt want to? Bleah.

I love the AMusic recommendations, but the interface is really very, very Alpha.

Your need is probably unique and not typical., to want to browse all songs of an artist. Most will view albums, or simply use the search bar to find a specific song.
