How to Download Full Music Albums from YouTube

We all love music, there are no ifs and buts about it. It’s like a friend that is always with us, that cheers up when we are down, and makes us want to dance and reach to the skies when we are happy. And who doesn’t wish to always be in a company of a loyal friend?

While most of us have playlists of favorite tracks from multiple different artists, some musicians take a special place in our hearts. We naturally want to be able to listen to their whole albums, not just single tracks; but what is the easiest and cheapest way to get full discographies of favorite artists?
