They say music is what feelings sound like. Why not tell someone how you feel about them with a gift of music? We think these are some of the best albums and music gifts ever…
"If music be the food of love, play on" as a certain poet once said, and just like a well planned menu, there are musical gifts to suit just about everyone's taste.
Whether a hardcore rocker, an indie hipster, a demon for the digital downloads or a proud teeny bopper; there's a pitch perfect music gift to hit all the right notes.
Music Gifts - For Those About to Rock
The accomplished musician strives for authenticity, so think time-honoured amps, retro microphones, Kraftwerk-esque synths and classic album sleeves for music gifts that are sure to kick start some rocking in the free world.
Music Gifts - For Sounding Off
What good are the tunes without the equipment to do them justice? Bestow on them the gift of high quality sound with hi-tech headphones, wireless speakers, MP3 player add-ons and (bringing the sentiment back to music sharing) USB mix tapes.
Music Gifts - OK Computer
When they've had enough of the real world, they can retreat (with the help of their computer console) to a musical fantasy where the the shows sell-out, the rider's always overflowing and the critics readily lavish their praise. Let them be virtual rock Gods via the popular Rock Star and Rock Band video games that substitute the humble tennis racket for an axe controller, music gifts that will give them a taste of the high life without the rehab.
Music Gifts - Pining for Vinyl
For those who appreciate how it was back in the day, a gift of the good old fashioned record is the only way to go. With most seminal albums getting re-vamped and re-issued there's always an extra treat in store in the shape of additional sleeve notes, previously unseen photos and the odd bonus track too. A musical gift that will ensure they'll get in to the groove in no time.
