Question: What songs are available on Apple Music?

I joined Apple Music for my free 3 month trial and tried to download an album, only 8 of 22 songs downloaded and the others are 'not available'. There was no indication when I got the album that the majority of songs weren't available.

How can I tell what songs can and can't be downloaded?

iPhone 6 Plus, iOS 11.2

Generally they are greyed out when you look at the songs in an album. This is not something that Apple Music controls - it is controlled by artists and their labels who sometimes don't want particular songs and/or albums to be available for streaming. But is nothing is greyed out, try removing the album from your library and then adding it again. The system works pretty well (especially compared to when it was started) but there are still occasional glitches.
