    I had TLOP in my collection for months and it worked fine. Today some of the songs became unavailable (the text is grey: http://imgur.com/qdbqKrr) and I can't play them. Also when I want to play song 2 it starts to skip songs to song number 6. If I listen to the album via 'New' tab every song plays normally. Is anyone having similar problems? This is very frustrating!

    I identified this issue months ago. It seems that sometimes AM updates internal identifiers for tracks, rendering previously "saved" versions unplayable. I've had whole albums become unavailable.

    The solution is to delete and then re-add the album to update its contents.

    Yeah. I was pretty frustrated by it too. Ruined a bunch of playlists for me. I've noticed it a lot for upcoming releases that are available to "pre-add" to your library before all the tracks are available.
