How come only some albums is uploaded for some bands?

Greetings
I am a regular Spotify user, I enjoy the service and even use premium. But I have come to notice, that some of the bands I find, only have a limited amount of albums and not their full roster.
Could anyone who knows leave a comment as to why that is?

Thanks Soren

You normally find it is down to licensing, Spotify haven't acquired a license for the content which is why it is missing. Interestingly, a lot of content will be in the catalogue just unavailable to you as licenses vary greatly between countries.

Have a read at this topic for a little more detail:
