The Darling Buds, one of Wales’s most successful indie bands of the 80s and 90s, have recorded a new version of the track “Isolation”, from their 1992 album, Erotica, each band member recording their own contribution on phones and tablets from their own homes during lockdown. The Newport collective have been performing regularly around the UK since reforming in 2010 for a memorial concert, and released an EP in 2017.

Wales Arts Review has brought together its editors and contributors to compile a list of the 100 greatest Welsh albums of all time with entries from The Joy Formidable and The Darling Buds.
Wales, throughout its history, has always been a land of song. Welsh tradition places a high value on music, and it is a major part of Wales’ national culture. As far back as the twelfth century, there is historical record of distinct, unique music coming from Wales and that continues to this day.
Over the past few decades, major music publications have compiled lists of what their editors and contributors feel to be the greatest albums and songs of all time, but Wales Arts Review’s editors and contributors strived to create a list that celebrates Welsh musical output.
