The expandable album view allows you to see track listings for an individual album, while letting you continue to browse your music library.

"You also have a preview history that shows you all of the music, movies and TV shows you've sampled. iCloud keeps your preview history across all of your devices. Additionally, users can preview 90 second clips of songs while continuing to browse the store."
