NAME

Net::iTMS::Album - Represents an album in the iTunes Music Store

SYNOPSIS

    use Net::iTMS::Album;

    my $album = Net::iTMS::Album->new($iTMS, $id);
    
    print "Album: ", $album->title, "\n";

    # $track will be a Net::iTMS::Song object
    for my $track ($album->tracks) {    # also $album->songs
        print "\t ", $track->number, ": ", $track->title, "\n";
    }

DESCRIPTION

Net::iTMS::Album represents an album in the iTMS and encapsulates the associated data. If a piece of information hasn't been fetched from the iTMS, it will transparently fetch and store it for later use before returning.

If any method, excepting id, record_label, and thumb, is called, the information for the others will be fetched in the same request. This means, for these methods, the first call to one will have a time hit for the HTTP request, but subsequent calls won't.
