Downloading Full Albums instead of just Playlists

It would be such a great feature to have if a user was able to download albums directly rather than adding an album to a playlist just to listen to it offline in its entirety. Rdio, MOG, and Rhapsody already do a marvelous job at implementing this feature as well as organizing a user's library of offline material. Any insight on whether this will be coming soon or not would be deeply appreciated.

Now it's too bad that I don't have a good explanation, cause it'll be of less help to anyone else, but it's fine now. I originally thought it had something to do with saving albums to library before attempting to download, but I just disconfirmed that a moment ago. I attempted to download an unsaved album and it saved it automatically and started downloading. I really don't know. Maybe an update took care of whatever was going on.

I would be happy if I could buy my playlist. Then I can also play my music in my car, and on my older MP3 players. Now I have to find my numbers one by one and buy them online.
