Music's always been a particular passion of mine and I felt that it deserved its own section on my website. Mostly it's a place to share my various charts and general ramblings, though you should also keep an eye on my blog for any new musical musings.

Before delving in to my charts and witterings, you might want to know a bit about my music taste. The easiest way to get an overview of the stuff I like is to visit my last.fm profile. As you might quickly gather, I'm a big fan of a lot of Britpop-era (and slightly post-Britpop era) bands. I'm also a sucker for female vocalists, particularly the more interesting ones, and I love a lot of Welsh bands. It's probably not surprising then that my favourite band are/were Catatonia. Although, prior to that, my favourite band was Queen, who are still up in my top 5 favourite bands.

The 'A-Z Music' section is an archive of something that I did a few years ago where I attempted to listen to all of my CDs alphabetically and blog about them. I sadly didn't manage to finish it, but it's something I'd like to complete at some point, especially as I've had a lot of complementary feedback about it.

I'm hoping to expand this section at some point, to include some Spotify playlists and such like, but for now you can check out my various charts and my A-Z blog posts:
