Google music search

Google have a largely ignored specialist search for music available, which was announced last month.

The system is not specifically labelled as beta, but is fairly experimental, and has severe display problems in my Mozilla Firefox browser, but looks OK in IE.

Searches bring up matches in separate categories for Artists, Songs, and Albums, with results illustrated by 90 pixel square images served up from Froogle. Clicking through on the artist brings up all their albums, on an album all the tracks, and on a track details including a snippet of the lyrics plus links to other sites with the lyrics.

Where appropriate, there are links to actually buy the album or song, either as a CD or as a download, and the artist pages also include links to do searches on other Google properties, including the web, images, news, and groups.
