DOTTY ABOUT MUSIC...

AdvantagesFREQUENT UPDATES, VAST CONTENT, GOOD SEARCH FACILITIES

DisadvantagesA BIT TOO CHART HEAVY, POP UP ADVERTS.

"...site, but I do visit dotmusic.com from time to time too – the focus of my review here. Dotmusic (lets call it DM from here on in) was originally developed some years ago, independently I think, but is now owned and managed by BT, being part of the vast BT Openworld network. Being such a profiled company/organisation, DM clearly now has leverage in getting quality people working on the site, with quality exclusives and everything musical in general. There’s ..."

all your music needs brought to you on the dot

AdvantagesEasily navigable and dressed up in funky oranges and purples, this site looks good and has all the features you want from a music site

Disadvantagesworldpop is just as good!

"I only ever visit two music sites on the internet : dotmusic and worldpop. Since Ciao seem to have neglected worldpop.com, even though it is the official sponsor of the UK singles charts!! *nudges ciao fat cats to sort themselves out :)* So anyway, onto the wonderfully simplistic and enjoyable experience that is visiting the dotmusic website. Hailed as the most popular music website in Europe, it isn't hard to see why, especially since it has been ..." Read review

simply the best

AdvantagesAll the latest music news and provides a way to discuss the music you enjoy with like-minded people.

DisadvantagesN/A!

"I discovered dotmusic in late 1998, whilst performing a search for some comprehensive music websites. What a blessing i did! Dotmusic is probably the best music website around, on the homepage, there are many options. Firstly, there are the main music news stories of the day, which you can look at in detail. Dot are always the first to any major stories in the world of music and their reports are of the highest accuracy. Dot are the first website ..." Read review

This amount of info is no dot.

AdvantagesYou can keep up to date with your idols at all times via the site or by email

DisadvantagesThe site can sometimes be very slow

"...first ever log on to dotmusic.com you are presented with a simple home page with all the necessary links and a few advertisements that obviously help to maintain the site. The site is not like most other sites and supported by frames, every time you click on a link it takes you to a brand new page, however, this can sometimes be very slow and is one of the very few down sides to dotmusic.com I have came across. On the left hand side of every ..." Read review

Advantageswell set out, great infromation and good fun quizzes

Disadvantagescan't think of any

"I first logged on dotmusic.com after seeing the adverts for it the whole time on TV. I thought to myself, why not go and have a look. So I did.

AdvantagesGreat layout, wide range of content, individual band news archive

Disadvantagesslow to load

"Over the last year or so, there has been one site which I have visited far more times than any other.. this site being dotmusic. It offers almost everything to the music lover, from news, to charts to a quiz. The range of music news presented is more widely ranged than almost any other site.. whether you are a fan of A1 or Metallica, dotmusic is sure to keep you well updated. If you are unable to access the site regularly, there is also a function ..." Read review

dotmusic is the best out there

AdvantagesSimply the ammount of content

DisadvantagesDont know of any

"Dotmusic is a website that is literally packed with music content. Your presented with a few main categories to start with, but all these categories have a huge base of content inside them and the topics covered are covered in depth and are written and displayed well. The main categories are: News, Charts, Artists, Reviews, Live, Dance, Community & Shop. If you click on Charts, you will be presented with a load of different charts covering a very ..." Read review

Needing a makeover

AdvantagesGood clear news and fantastic forums

Disadvantagesanoying adverts, and lack of updates

"This is the sister publication of Music Week, the magazine aimed at the industry, although Dotmusic takes on a different style of aproach and aims itself more at the music fan. Theres alot that could be improved on this site, the news only updates during office hours (or so it would seem) and even then only covers 10 or so stories a day, this is a pain because most music fans use the net in the evening when they've heard about the news from other ..."

A very good site indeed

AdvantagesVery good site, lots of information all the time

DisadvantagesNone

"www.dotmusic.com is everything that I could ever want in a UK popular music site. It always has the latest news stories and gossips, the top 75 albums and singles of the week, and as well as all of that, contains webchats and interviews, not to mention all of the pages on the artists you can find on there as well. The site really has been an excellent resource for music news for me. I use it every day to find out about what is going on in the world ..." Read review

Advantages

Disadvantages

"since dot music was launched i have visted it regualley. It's definitely the best music site on the net and has outstanding lyrics. Originally I liked it because there were loads of different charts and I liked the commentary written about the charts. The layout of the website is pretty easy to navigate - I like the way the site is clearly segreatetd into reviews, charts and news by music genre. There has been a tendency for the site to have gossippy ..." Read review

The hot dot com

AdvantagesAll the music gossip in one place

DisadvantagesHaven't found any yet

"Dotmusic were the first people to set up a Geri Halliwell site when she first went solo, and this was my primary reason for originally visiting, amd since then it has been permanantly on my favourites list. They have hundreds of artist sites and give good, relevant information not biased gossip. Any newsworthy stuff to do with a national or international music star is there right away, and you can subscribe to your favourite stars area and get ..." Read review

Music music music and more music

AdvantagesGreat site jam packed full of music related stuff

Disadvantagesnone

"For me Dotmusic is the best music website out there. It's just recently been done over with a new facelift which has made the site look even better. The site is updated daily with all the latest news and gossip which is accessable as soon as you log onto the site. You can even read archived news from months back. Many music artists have their own section on the site dedicated to them, so you can find info on any artist from Steps to Oasis. There ..." Read review

dotmusic.com.....one of the best

AdvantagesAll the latest music, gig and chart news. Information on all types of music genres.

DisadvantagesSome single/albulm reviews are bias. The site can take a while to load.

"Dotmusic.com seems like the "place to be" to find out about the latest happenings in the music industry. I could not agree more. It has everything from Pop to Hiphop; the list could go on. Dotmusic is obviously aimed at a wide range of music tastes, it accommodates these different genres very well. Dotmusic is also diffidently not "Thin on the ground" when it comes to the latest music news and reviews. You also have the possibility of having music ..." Read review

Disadvantagescan be slow to downloadf pages . but then again isn't all the other web sites.

"I am quite new too this web site. I have only been a member for a few months. But in these few months that I have been a member I have soon discovered all the brilliant things they have to offer us. Specially the pop quiz compared to all the other sites you can actually have a bit of light hearted fun without paying or any other strings atached. You can also win prizes and get information about nearly every single artist and band there is . You can ..." Read review

The friendliest place on the web

AdvantagesVery easy to navigate. Lots of information, up-to-the-minute news, good selection, a must for all true music fans.

DisadvantagesThe chat can sometimes go a bit strange and occasionally you get offensive people on there.

"Well, on my first ever visit to dotmusic, i found it very easy to navigate and find what i wanted. The chat room was also probably one of the best i've seen...and that's a lot, apart from occasional idiots who come and go! The colours are actually very helpful. Also the forums are well laid out and it's easy to find what you need. The artists areas are also well presented and there is a very wide variety of artists, from the tweenies to eminem! The ..."
