About the Blog
The CD Critic is an independent Blog for music reviews. Run by Gareth Watkin, The CD Critic reviews upcoming albums by artists and bands either well known, or in the independent scene. Gareth Watkin writes all his reviews himself, and in his own time purely for his own enjoyment. Reviews are purely the opinion of Gareth Watkin and do not express the opinions of anybody else.
