I got a few albums uploaded, all the songs (the full albums ) show up in my tablet ( Samsung S ), also they show up in the web player and in my old Samsung S3. But my S4 with lollipop just shows two or three songs of each album.

I already tried refresh, also I changed the storage, I cleared the data, and the cache. But everytime I log and browse the albums just two or three songs shows up.

Edit. Also I wiped out the whole system and even the dalvik cache.

I was having the same problem and have a case open with Google on this issue. While I have not heard back from them yet, I continued to investigate this issue myself and may have found a solution. What I did was open Goolgle Play music from my browser on my laptop. In settings, under my devices I deactivated my Android phone (Galaxy S5). On my phone I did a Force stop of the application and cleared any data. Then I restarted the app and did a refresh just to force it.

Before I did this, several artists were missing and many songs as well. for example my phone only showed 8 Beatles songs. Now I am showing 256. On my laptop, I still show more songs 269, but it a heck of a lot better. Other artists I checked show up as well.

I believe this all started after I did a full wipe of my phone due to battery issues with the lollipop upgrade. Hopefully this helps.



Well finally it seems to be a problem with Google services and not my phone or devices. I took a more drastic approach and removed all my music from the cloud and uploaded again, all sixty gigabytes of music, but everything is great now.

Someone could try also @Mark Schwartz approach, but that didn't seem to fully solve the problem for me. It improved the amount of songs that appeared on the phone , but still not all of them.
