All new reviews appear on our new modern
mobile-friendly site here:
Since MusicWeb was founded nearly 30 years the internet has moved
on, and at an increasing pace. We have been conscious of the need to
upgrade the site; for example to make it mobile-friendly. I’m
delighted to say that moment has arrived. The new site will be the
home for all new reviews and articles published from December
The new site represents a really important
step in MusicWeb’s development. It will offer a clearer layout,
easier navigation and a crisp, modern look.
know that our readers greatly value, as a source for reference, the
huge amount of material that MusicWeb has previously published.
Therefore, MusicWeb will now operate on two sites with the old site
(where you are now) to be known as the MusicWeb Archive. The old site will not be
completely inactive - a number of the more substantial sections
(e.g. the indexes) will remain here and continue to be
updated. The Message Board will still work from either site
and you will still be able to access all our nearly 60,000-strong back catalogue of reviews and all original articles.
You will know which site you are on because they will look
totally different. Links on both sites will mean you can easily
flip between the two.
There will be one or two features of the present
site which we won’t be able to replicate, at least initially, on the
new version: for example, the weekly mailing list in its current
form. However, I think that any lost features will be amply
compensated by the improved look and feel of the new site;
furthermore, we will continue to work on it to make it even better
for you over time.
International reviews more classical recordings than any other site.
RECENT ARTICLES & NOTICES
It has come to our attention that the now defunct online CD
retailer Crotchet, to which we used to link reviews back in the 2000s, has had
its domain name taken over by an escort agency. So if you see a link to
Crotchet on our site, please don't click on it. There are probably thousands
of reviews with the Crotchet link, so it isn't feasible to go back and
delete them all.
MusicWeb International is seeking new reviewers for CDs, videos, digital downloads and
streaming. If this interests you, please
send a specimen review to Len Mullenger
(Len@musicweb-international.com). We regret this position is unpaid.
may have noticed that the MusicWeb Archive is not a secure site and does not have an SSL
certificate. Our URL shows an open lock and we are http rather than https.
If this worries you I assure you it is because we do not need one as we do
not hold any data on our visitors so your privacy cannot be compromised. Any
financial transactions are carried out by the secure third party Pay-Pal.
For all of our 25 years, MusicWeb International has not operated
a PayWall. We can keep it free if you can be persuaded to make a donation.
