They are all gone here in the US. Hopefully you got them backed up...
Ouch. Tidal screwed the pooch on Atmos, so artists & labels are starting to take things back? They only had a limited licensing agreement to begin with?

(Just speculating. Maybe it's just a temporary glitch? I wonder if other albums have disappeared?)

I am still learning. It is my understanding that you can + or ❤ a track or album and add to your collection or playlist. But if Tidal removes it from there site it also gets eliminated from your Collection or Playlist.
I am unaware that you can actually backup a song or album and keep forever?
I think I am correct?

When Tidal removes the item (either a track or a complete album), you still have it on your collection. It appears 'lighted' on the mobile app, and you can even share/copy the link.
But, when you click on it to see it or to play it, the app says "it is not longer available" or similar error depending on the platform.

The 'download' option would be useful to play 'offline' the content when no internet connection is available. BUT this option is not useful for me as I only find it in the mobile App, and I don't use the mobile to listen Tidal music, just to look for albums and add them to 'My Collection'.

Then, I use Fire TV 4K, to listen to Tidal Atmos on my Home Theater. But the Fire TV Tidal App lacks search funcionality, No add to My Collection, and no 'download' feature, as there is not too much space to download anything, only the app cache on Fire TV, that I have to clear-up from time to time when Fire TV become slow or buggy.

I do not know if other playforms such as Apple TV or Rocku has Tidal app with those functionalities. And when a 'download' is removed from Tidal I suspect it could be played until next Internet connection on the device that would be marked as 'not available'.

If there would be other methods to rip or 'real download' Tidal content, those would not be 'legal' and I don't know if they exist yet.

Sooo.... Time to buy some more Blu-ray's ...????

Definitely get the BDA of the Booka Shade (if you can find it). The Heiner Rennebaum album is another Fritz Hilpert mix, and a good one. Not available on Blu-Ray, but you can purchase mp4s by contacting Heiner via the album's Bandcamp page:

I do have the ability to search Tidal with my 4K Amazon Fire Cube. Went to search which shows microphone for voice search, not good, right toggle to search bar, click and alphabet comes up, typed in All Things Must Pass, all versions came up, including the 2020 Atmos mix. Listening to the Atmos mix, I assume the Blu Ray will sound better as this Tidal Atmos version is muddy.
When I type in Atmos in the Tidal search bar, mostly get the band called Atmos. I do get the Dolby Atmos playlists, I can also see that previous whole album Atmos titles that where there a month ago are now gone. Maybe I need to ❤ everything I see in Atmos so I have a fighting chance to remember where the titles are?
My Apple 4K is in the house and I just need to hook it up, but I need to be in a very solid frame of mind when I pull and plug wires, especially when they start asking for credit card, passwords, etc.
I see the Tidal app is available on the Apple 4K, so I will have both Apple Music and Tidal, we shall see.

You are right. Also with Fire TV 4K I can search. I thought it was only possible with voice search, and missed to right select the search bar.

Then, it is a good idea to select ❤ everything you like. But when the list becomes long I cannot reorder or clasified the items on My collection. And have to sequential browse to find one.

I got a Tidal subscription because it streams to my Yamaha receiver. Really liking the Dune soundtrack stuff.
