Best Way to Use Apple Music without iCloud Music Library

iCloud Music Library is Apple's cloud-based repository for all your music. For Apple Music subscribers, iCloud Music Library gives you the option of keeping your entire Apple Music collection synced across multiple Apple devices. It works by matching the songs in your library to tracks available in the iTunes music store, allowing you to download or stream them from anywhere with an internet connection. However, this service doesn’t completely error free; by enabling it, you may encounter some unexpected issue like:

-- iCloud Music Library won't respond or times out.

-- Songs are synced with missing or mismatched album artwork.

-- Live tracks matched to their studio versions.

--Tracks show wrong metadata.
