questions about using apple music with and without siri

iOS & iPadOS

Hello applevis. I have a question about siri, apple music and if things that i'm talking about can be applied without using siri in apple music. I noticed one thing. If i create a station on a specific artist without siri applee music will play this artist's songs plus some songs of related artist to the artist that i have selected. But if I say to siri play and the name of the artist, she will play the only songs of the requested artist and she will even play the songs that are not at the top songs heading. Can these things be done without using siri? Say, for example i want to know more about the songs of the band pentatonix, but i don't want to play albums and i just want to listen to different songs and maybe add them to my library. With siri i can do above mentioned things. Can i do it without siri? I ask it because i don't use siri often for playing music and it's better to me to use the music app manually. Thanx!

Probably my biggest complaint with Apple Music is the inability to select an artist from within the app and tell it to play (shuffled or otherwise) all tracks by a selected artist. It may can be done, but if so, the answer is not an obvious one to find. Both Spotify and Google Play Music do this with one double tap or click if using a computer. You'd think by now Apple Music would have gotten its act together regarding this issue.

Does siri play all tracks of the artist? I think we should write to apple and ask them to make this feature without siri!

I don't know if it plays all tracks or not. I usually switch over to Google Play Music for that.
