    Default All Things Music

    Someone said:

    "I love all things music."

    Is something missing between "things" and "music"?

    Effectively, it should say "all things to do with music" but it's a fairly well-used construction where "to do with" is not really necessary.

    He loves all things film.
    She loves all things fashion.
    I love all things music.

    It's not great, I'm sure lots of people don't like it and I certainly wouldn't recommend using it in any kind of formal test, written or oral, but you will hear it from native speakers occasionally.
