5-0 out of 5 stars Something more women should be seeking...
In a world where everywhere you go you see breasts and legs (and I don't mean chicken), Playgirl magazine does the best job possible of filling a huge void in women's lives.

It honestly surprises me as a 25-year-old woman that so many women deprive themselves of all the male body can offer to them. Research has proven that both men and women are visually stimulated by nude pictures of the opposite sex, so why are so many magazines out there targeted toward men and only one is targeted toward women? Perhaps women are so used to passively accepting images of sexy, scantily-clad women pleasing men (even in women's magazines) that they don't want to turn off men by expecting more for themselves? Perhaps they think it's "dirty" to look at naked men? Well, then is it really surprising that more women than men suffer from inhibited sexual drive disorder? My suggested remedy: support the one magazine out there that tastefully portrays the ideal image of a man (not the effeminate "boy band" image) and stop denying your natural curiosity. (And despite the unnecessary reviews submitted by male readers, this IS a magazine for WOMEN - even if the sexual orientation of some of the models is questionable.)

Playgirl could offer more general articles about women's health and other life-related issues, and it could eliminate the disgusting ads for XXX-rated media. But overall, it's worth the money for high-quality entertainment that women are certainly not going to find anywhere else, at least for now.

4-0 out of 5 stars Playgirl Surprisingly Pleasing
My husband ordered Playgirl for me as a surprise gift. I wasn't very interested at first, but figured I should be open mined about it. I was pleasantly surprised. While not quite "Playboy" quality (it's a man's world), it is a pretty good magazine. The humor is witty, and the articles about sex and relationships are similar to those found in other women's magazines. My favorite section was the one where readers send in erotic fantasy stories to share. Possibly one third of the models may be gay, but the editors do a good job picking subjects for pictorials, and all are good eye candy. While as women, we do not tend to be as visually stimulated as men, I must admit to getting somewhat "in the mood" after thumbing thru pages of beautiful hard bodies (among other things). Could use a few more female specific articles about health, beauty, sex, and relationships, but I do like it, and would recommend it to a friend, especially my married friends....;0).

5-0 out of 5 stars Una revista muy chevere
This magazine is wonderful if you are looking for a magazine that is easy to read, entertaining and yet informative all in one. It is geared toward the Latin community but I think it could also interest anyone who speaks Spanish and has a love for the culture. I started buying this magazine regularly in 1998 and I am still a fan of People en espanol. At first glance one may think that it's the Spanish version the weekly People magazine in English but believe me the only element in common is the title. This magazine has a section on "la farándula" and "en familia" which I find always nice to read and sometimes there are good articles about infants and kids that give helpful tips about childcare. There are other informative sections that you can read according to your personal preference. Lastly, the quality of the Spanish is very good in comparison to other magazines in its class in which I have found major grammar errors on a regular basis. This magazine is worth every cent and can be read through an through.

5-0 out of 5 stars better than the regular people magazine
I have been learning Spanish for several years now, but when I started out my teacher recommended People in espanol. When I got good enough at reading spanish, I started reading it. It is an awesome magazine, much better than its English counterparts. You won't find the same people over and over in the magazine, and the magazine seems to have more of a personal touch to it. The pages are more colorful and there are quizzes and other puzzles, as well as informative articles that are not the typical fluff of this magazine's english counterpart. It introduced me to a different culture as well.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Spanish Language Magazine in the US
People en Espanol is a magazine ALL Latinos can be proud of. A solid editorial mix of current events, celebrities, trends, fashion and nostalgia, the magazine is journalistically far superior to other titles for the same audience. Not only are its reporting standards superb, the magazine provides a wonderful range of stories every month. Unlike "TV & Novelas" which is all gossip-all-the-time, or "Latina" which is written in "spanglish" or even "Selecciones" which appeals to my parents, "People en Espanol" offers a genuine high-integrity alternative in Spanish that truly makes it unique, relevent and dynamic. The stories are interesting, the information valuable, and the photos our culture!

Moreover, it's not a knock-off of the US version of People Weekly - in fact, very little of its coverage draws from the US title, so that the editorial is fresh and relevant to the Latino audience, not matter if the reader is Mexican, Cuban, Puerto Rican, South American or Dominican. That alone makes it very special. In a culture where each subgroup seems self-isolated, this magazine works hard to focus on the ties that bind our communities rather than the ones that seem to drive us apart.

It's a magazine I am proud to subscribe to, and one I have given to countless friends as a gift. They love it, and you'll love it too!! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Magazine
This magazine is excellent for children. I bought it for my son when he turned 1 year. He wasn't too interested at first (he's very active, but then at about 18 months, he started to enjoy it. We go over the pictures and read the stories together. He likes the fact that this is "his" magazine and that it comes through the mail. I agree with one of the comments above that a first grader can read it too while he/she is learning how to read. I am a first grade teacher and I was thinking of using the magazine with my students for guided reading. I also have been giving it as a gift to my friends' kids.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Magazine, well worth the price!
I often think NWF is making a mistake when advertising this as for children ages 1-3, because my child continued to enjoy it through first grade (during which time she was learning to read). It was something that came to her in her own name in the mail, was at her reading ability, and, at first grade, still interested her as far as the subject matter was concerned. Now that she is a third grader, she still is willing to read it to her little sister.
At 1.5 years, a child enjoys the great photos, but is still too young to grasp all the fun games. We have tried many children's magazines, but for up through first grade, this is really the best. I give it as gifts, especially to families with more than one child under the age of 7.

4-0 out of 5 stars One of the best purchases I've ever made...
This is a wonderful publication that my daughter absolutely loves. She started receiving "Wild Animal Baby" around 13 months of age and she was interested in it immediately. She is now 18 months and still pulls out every issue daily. She loves flipping through it on her own or bringing it to me so we can read it together. The pages are bright and colorful and have always held her interest. And it's so much fun, she doesn't know that she's learning.
My only complaint is that because these magazines are so well-loved, that the pages are starting to fall out. If the publisher can find a way to keep the pages from falling out, I would without a doubt give it all 5 stars. Even as is, I highly recommend it and will be ordering it as a gift for others.

4-0 out of 5 stars A "Must Subscribe" for Toddlers
When Animal Baby arrives at our house, it's like Christmas Day. Our 16-month-old absolutely loves it. It's colorful, imaginative and holds her interest from cover-to-cover.

My only knock against it is the construction. It is not, as indicated, a board book. It is of mid-weight carboard construction and it falls apart after a few handlings. All of our copies are taped together and our baby is not particulalry destructive.

So get a subscription and a roll of clear postal tape and you're in business.

5-0 out of 5 stars If you don't have it, get it today!!!
I really can not say enough good things about this magazine. It is like a little book with all sorts of things. It usally starts with a short story about a little kid and his/her pet, following by a short poem that asks you to identify the real animal shown on the next page. After that, it usually teaches some shapes or an alphabet letter using an animal picture, e.g. using Lion to teach letter 'L'. And then, you can read a short poem and do a little bit hand dance. Following that is an activity that both an animal and a little kid likes to or can do, e.g., a kid likes to eat strawberries just like a vole, or a kid can gallop like a horse, etc.. After that, it is another identifying animal game that asks you to guess which animal on the next page is the one that a kid in costume tries to immitate. And then, it is a matching game in which you match some body parts to the animals they belong that are shown on the following page. Finally, the big finish is a short story about the animal shown on the cover of each issue. If you like to have more fun activities, you can visit some web pages whose URLs are shown on the last page.

Both my 1- and 3-year-old kids love this magazine. Though my son has progressed to another magazine titled "Your Big Backyard", he still loves to read this one. He usually will finish reading it right away, once it arrives. My daughter is younger, she likes to ask me to read this "Wild Animal Baby" story to her again and again.

Since there are no annoying ads in this magazine and every issue really looks like a well-printed book, you can keep all the issues on the bookshelves for long long time so that you kids can go back and enjoy reading them whenever they want. It really is a money-saving way to buy good books without thinking twice about it. ... Read more

This magazine is absolutely incredible. It is funny, informative, and best of all, doesn't take itself so seriously. You get a very fresh and hip writing style that keeps you entertained from cover to cover. Nothing at all like it's competitors. You just have to try it for yourself.

I just got my first issue of Instinct Magazine and it is awesome. Great front covers. If not to just look for the articles in the magazine, I enjoy the pictures and the ads.[] There's not been one issue that I bought, that wasn't good. By it now!

"Instinct Magazine - America's #1 Gay Men's Magazine. A clever mix of Cosmo and Maxim, Instinct is funny, sexy, and smart, and is a new kind of gay magazine, one that does not take itself so seriously, and affords a welcome break from the politically correct. Each issue of Instinct Magazine lets readers know that being gay is ok, as long as you don't lose your sense of humor along the way. The editors strive to entertain, enlighten and laugh with the readers, but never preach to them. Instinct covers entertainment, fitness, travel, fashion, and features page after page of hot guys!" - summary from

1-0 out of 5 stars Better things to do...
People, get a life. Read something other than trash!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars The ultimate fun rag
I have been a loyal subscriber to the Enquirer since around 1985 or so. I love this rag! It's the best of the best, if you can only subscribe to one rag, this is it. I also read the Star and the Globe, but the Enquirer is really the top one. I don't like the National Examiner or the others because I don't find them reliable. If you read the "triple crown" each week, like I do, you will know all you need to about Hollywood. Some of the stories turn out to be made up, but I read it more for entertainment value. After almost 20 years, I can usually tell what has real factual basis, what is fabricated from nothing, and what is, in fact, false. They got me on Celine Dion, though, that read like a factually accurate story.

Great celebrity gossip, hysterical and embarassing photos, and a light-hearted touch, this is what makes this rag the best. The Enquirer has also broken some really big stories, too. My only complaint is that they don't know when to let a story drop. I'm all for trashing celebrities and laughing at their non-serious misfortunes, but I've considered dropping my subscription because they just will not let Princess Diana and JFK, Jr. rest in peace. Almost every week, it's more royal tapes, scandals, and stories about JFK, Jr.'s supposedly bad marriage. Please, these poor people have been dead for years. They died under tragic circumstances. I don't want to read about these things. Leave them alone. Also, I'll curl up and die if I have to see one more picture of Laci Peterson or read about her bad marriage. Whoever killed her, she's dead. She was about to have a baby and it was the holidays, and someone killed her. Leave her alone! If the Enquirer is reading this, please take note. Almost everyone I know who reads it skips the Laci Peterson stories. People don't read the Enquirer to get bummed out, and there's nothing particularly interesting about the case.

I'm one of those people who reads the Enquirer and does not lie about it. Be true to yourself and subscribe today.

This is the Greatest Best Biggest trash magazine in the United States!! Actually, I love to read it. It is goofy, light hearted, meaningless, stupid, and fulfills that part of me that "needs to know." Know what, I haven't quite figured out. This is the one that gets read. Why? Again, I don't know. Admit it to yourself (but not your friends) YOU LOVE IT TOO!! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I love In Touch!
This is a great magazine! I like it much better than People and Us Weekly because it offers uplifting information and isn't so depressing like People. They have all the latest celebrity gossip and style. Plus it's not as expensive as the others. With In Touch, you get so much more value for your money.

1-0 out of 5 stars Great if it arrives...on time or EVER
I subscribed to IN TOUCH shortly after it appeared on store shelves. Not only have at least five issues not ever even shown up in my mailbox since then, but IF they do, it is a week AFTER I've seen the magazine on the rack in stores. Terrible subscription service.

1-0 out of 5 stars Lightweight "Touch"
Want the leering celebrity gossip and trend-following of "Us" and "People," but don't want to spend so much time following all those long words? Then "In Touch" is your kind of magazine. Vapid, vacuous and obsessed with the gloss of celebrity, this is instantly forgettable ridiculous tabloid fluff.

"In Touch" is essentially a cheap, glossy tabloid magazine. Cover stories are usually the latest salacious love-life/pregnancy/breakup/marriage rumors ("Jennifer Dumps Her Lover!") or fluff stories about how celebrities lost weight, their clothes, their underwear (recommendations for nudie thongs?), how they decorated their homes, and updates on the thousands of reality-show celebrities du jour.

Ironically, despite the wealth of false -- and often silly -- rumors that "In Touch" produces, they have an entire section devoted to pronouncing rumors "false" or "true." Occasionally one of their fluff pieces is interesting, like the brief article on "Lord of the Rings" star Dominic Monoghan and his buggy pets (a mantis and a black widow). But only a handful of articles stand out -- the rest melt together into a sloppy sea of stale rumors.

It's hard to find many magazines more vapid than "In Touch." Aside from the ones for the under-five crowd, that is. It's heavy on pictures and lame captions, light on text, and very heavy on flash. Not to mention obsessed with people and things who are primarily famous for being famous -- Paris Hilton and Demi Moore most prominently.

"In Touch" is strictly a pleasure for those preoccupied by celebrity news, even if that news is garbage in more than one way. Instantly forgettable and light as a feather.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor subscription delivery
Basically this is pure gossip reading. I like the magazine for this purpose, however THIS subscription delivery service is for the birds! I get a magazine, on average, every two or three weeks. When I do finally receive it, it is so outdated that the news is old and the "tv" programs to watch are already several days! The days I receive it also vary, there is no consistency whatsoever - very unreliable and you'd be better served by going to the store and buying it there.

5-0 out of 5 stars get more than you paid for!
I started buying this magazine the first day it hit the shelf at our Wal-Mart. I haven't missed an issue. This magazine gives you more info than if you knew the stars personally and were up close and personal with their lives. I feel like the other mags dish it out, but sometimes I wonder if some of there stories are just that- STORIES! It seems like they spread it on pretty thick at times just to sell a cover. I don't get that with IN TOUCH. I have a salon, and my clients are anxious to find out what is going on this week with their favorite stars. It doesn't bother me in the least to sit down on a Friday or Saturday night, when the family is winding down, and read this book cover to cover, knowing that my clients are just as much movie buffs as I am, and they will want to know a tidbit of information on their favorites. Thanks IN TOUCH, for adding an end of the week incintive for those of us who very rarely get a Saturday off. Your magazine gives me something to look forward to! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars The same songs tabbed over and over again
I've read this magazine since I first picked up a guitar in 1989. Since then, it's had its ups and downs, as it tends to follow the latest trends. In 1989 the focus was hair metal; in 1992 it was thrash. It 1995 it was in a slump of four chord songs and songs that appeared in previous issues. I believe "Crazy Train", "Walk", "Free Bird" and "Crossroads" have probably each appeared about a dozen times since 1990. My subscription ran out in the late 90's, but I keep an eye out for it on the news stands. It's currently in another slump, one where the tabs are typically either nu-metal, garage rock like The Vines, or the aforementioned reprints. However, all is not lost; there are still good columns, although the interviews aren't that great anymore. And I think that there was an At The Gates song in there not too long ago.
The bottom line is, buy it from the news stands when you see songs that you like in it. That way you can choose the best from the competition (which tends to tab the same songs at the same time, even the classic rock ones).

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Magazine.
This is my favorite magazine, by far. If you play guitar, this is a must-have. It is, in my opinion, better than its "rival", Guitar One, because the articles are more interesting, the songs also include basslines along with the guitar tabs, and it has VERY helpful articles by rock stars like Kirk Hammett(Metallica), Dimebag Darrell(Pantera), Tony Rambola(Godsmack), and others that show different playing techniques along with exercises that can be very challenging. If you own a Line6 POD, the magazine includes settings for it that go along with the tabbed songs, so it sounds like the studio recording. So, if you play guitar, GET THIS!!!!!!!!! It's a good deal. Plus, Amazon's price saves you some $$$!

3-0 out of 5 stars Good gone Bad
I was a gung-ho Guitar World reader from about '96-'01... my subscription ran out sometime in '03... but the quality of the publication had so seriously fallen, I didn't care to spend the money on it any longer. Guitar World has become SO mainstream that it's pretty difficult to put up with. I havn't felt that the interviews were good for a long time. It doesn't seem the interviewERS are musicians. Not much in there is for musicians anymore (just like Rolling Stone). There are tabs in there, but they generally aren't written the way the artist plays the song... I still have all of my old issues, and refer to them often, but as for the new ones... buy 'em on the stand when they've got something interesting.

2-0 out of 5 stars Brainwashing guitarists everywhere
Guitar World is the most commercial guitar magazine you can buy. The lessons are practiaclly useless unless you are just beginning guitar. They do have good columnists (Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Dickey Betts, Warren Haynes, and even John Scofield), but this magazine is mainly targeted to the mainstream audiences instead of real guitarists. What really pisses me off is having to read Zakk Wylde say "Man I Love F****** alcohol" every minute.

And what about these "greatest guitarists of all time" articles. They have people who can only play barchords being listed as one of the greatest guitarists or having the best guitar solo ever. All this magazine is, is a bunch of hype and brainwashing of the masses. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Doug is my hero
I think he put it beautifully. I'm not saying that this magazine doesn't have a little bit going for it. Still it is a magazine for people who listen to mainstream bands put out by disney and then think it is alternative.

I am so tired of emo bands crying like wussy little girls about all their problems. They are priviledged middle class kids who don't have anything worthwhile to complain about so they just complain about how everyone was mean to them when they were a kid.

Seriously I don't think there is a worse genre of music than emo. I would rather listen to NSync because at least they don't put forward any false image of being "hardcore". Emo is no different than boy bands with guitars and a fake hardcore image.

If you like prepackaged punk and "hardcore" emo then this is probably the magazine for you. If you like good music you wont find too much of interest.


I have a SUBSCRIPTIOn to AP and love it! every month i get it i'm never dissapointed at all, it always has interview's w/ bands i personally love! if you love punk,pop punk , emo, emocore you'll love this mag. It's the only magazine out on the market that actually caters to this type of music, everything else is for pop/popculture or Metal hardrock. SO GET THIS MAG! YOU'LL LOVE IT!!

5-0 out of 5 stars The Holy AP
How do I begin? AP is my bible. Music is my religion and AP is my holy scripture. Screw Jesus, let's get some AFI!

3-0 out of 5 stars Well...
GREAT coverage of the indie/emo scene, though I'm not sure Dashboard deserves all the praise it receives (all they do after all is fill an album with ballads). Where it lacks is the coverage of Punk bands and Pseudo-Punk Bands. Bands like A Simple Plan, Good Charlotte, New Found Glory, etc. etc, these are the type of bands this magazine should be trashing. Or at least ignoring. But they don't, the bands receive the same amount of praise as anyone else, if not more. This magazine is like the Seventeen of Alt and Indie Rock, it only covers the more popular underground bands. Most of the names it covers can be found quite quickly by going to an emo album review site. In the end, you have to ask yourself, do you like Thursday, Taking Back Sunday, A Simple Plan, Dashboard Confessional, and Bad Religion? If you answered yes yes yes yes yes, or even yes yes no yes yes, then this is the magazine for you. If not, then find something else, because those are the only types of bands you'll find here.

3-0 out of 5 stars Still good, mostly
When GP started publication there wasn't anything else to compete with it. Now the aspiring youg guitarist has his or her pick of guitar mags, full of tab transcriptions of the latest hits and fawning interviews with pretentious guitar heros.

GP has tried to stand out form these magazine by being more about music and equipment, and to have a broader view of guitar playing, and to an extent is has succeeded. You're far more likely to find a profile of an intersting Flamenco or Brazilian guitarist in GP than in one of the other mags, and while you won't find fully tabbed out songs, GP is far more likely to deliver an article that goes into some depth on theory and application. In that sense, GP is more for musicians, and the other guitar magazines are mostly for teens looking to cover their favorite bands.

GP isn't always great. Some issues are completely devoid of anything that interests me, and there's far too much punk and shred guitar for my tastes. But a subscription is ridiculously cheap; I don't mind if I only find something of use in as few as half the issues I receive.

I've been subscribing for a couple of years now. The quick laundry list:
1. My favorite bit is there tends to be a diverse selection of guitar players and lessons. One month may be jazz heavy, another may be blues heavy, and sometimes there is even some punk/metal stuff thrown in. As a player I enjoy blues and metal, but I enjoy the diversity as it spawns ideas. Also note that while there are main stream guitarists covered there are also a lot of more obscure folks covered as well.

2. Yes there are a lot of ads. Show me a magazine that isn't loaded with ads these days tho'.

3. Yes there are a lot of gear reviews. Great if you're a gear head - not so good if you could care less. Usually at least 50% reviews 50% lessons, sometimes more on the review side.

4. I've been playing for a few years now and find most of the lessons are generally intermediate to advanced and assume you are fairly well versed in music theory. I don't count myself as an extraordinary guitar player though. I ended up buying a few music theory books to help me understand the lessons after a few issues. Frustrating but a great challenge!

5. No there are no tabs of the latest or oldest hits out there. Everything in this magazine revolves around learning to make music, not copy somebody else note for note.

All in all a decent enough magazine. I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 just because I'm a bit against all the gear reviews and the lessons are sometimes too brief or vague to be useful for me.

3-0 out of 5 stars So-So
This is a good magazine not the best. I like transcriptions but doesnt have them. The gear reviews are good it helped me buy an effect station. Overall I give it a three.

P.S. I think Brandon was talking about guitar one. I know that has a riff box.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great tip
Interviews, tips on playing and gear, lessons. all around great.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't subscribe unless you like junk mail and telemarkets
I subscribed in 2001 through and choose not to re-subscribe. I have received at least 2 phone calls a month from telemarketers and numerous mail solicitations for guitar player magazine to re-subscribe since my subscription ended. Even worse I have received three invoices from Ebsco Enterprises (I just received my third invoice today which is why I am posting this message) stating that I had contacted them by phone to subscribe even though I did no such thing. I have asked repeatedly by phone and certified mail to have my name removed from the telemarketer's list and guitar players as well only to have the cycle start over again in three months.

Bottom line is this magazine is just out to get your money, if you're serious about playing guitar your better off hanging out with other guitar players or taking lessons rather than wasting your money on advertisements, gear porn, one or two interesting articles each month, and the trill of junk mail and late night telemarketer phone calls. ...

After reading EBONY, i found out that the magazine is unique in the sense that it brings out the welfare of Black race, more so it is also good for one to know the insight of what is going on in America concerning the Blacks, as in their welfare, also knowing what they've achieved in the music Business, and the entertainment world.

I believe in todays time we should have more magazines that reflect what our youth are doing like Ebony does. I am writing so that one of your next topics could be Young and Successful rising Stars. Please consider me. Thank You

5-0 out of 5 stars In a "perfect" world, Ebony would not be needed!
But, inasmuch as perfection on this planet is many years away, the legendary magazine is essential today as it was "back in the day". It provides insight on the famous and the up-and-coming, occasionally jabbing at the controversial.

While I am sometimes at odds with its glossy profiles of celebrities and political figures, I do, however, find the publication to be well researched and an enjoyable read.

I can't thank Lynn Norment enough for her article. I don't want to offend anyone but her article was right on time and we need more articles that give Black Women a positive reality check...I love my Sistas, but this having babies out of wed lock, babies'daddy and multiple babies is beyond good common sense. Number One. Black Women we are doing a grave disservice not only to ourselves but our children with this behavior. Get This, WE ARE NOT MEN, SO WE CANNOT RAISE MEN CHILDREN WITH A MALE PERSPECTIVE AND WHAT ARE WE TEACHING THEM WHEN DADDY IS A LOSER, NOT AROUND, UNSUPPORTIVE OR ANY OF THOSE MENTIONED..........NOT TO MENTION WHAT WE DEPRIVE OUR DAUGHTERS OF, SEEING A NORMAL PRODUCTIVE LOVING RELATIONSHIP WITH A MAN.
Sista's what is up with this. You know I know the pain , the hurt and all that goes with our struggle but we need to start GETTING RID OF our justified anger because it is so destructive, take classes, get consuling whatever it takes.
Take steps not to have babies until we are married. Yes married. Take steps to stop having babies and try to get a positive living, male influence. A good uncle, brother , friend in your Man-Child and Woman-Childs life. Lets start being discriminating in our choices but also make sure we are dealing with our Men without excessive anger or attitude. Let's give ourselves and our children a chance.. Again thank you for your article I hope many more of these articles are printed.....Pls forward this to Lynn Norment

3-0 out of 5 stars cool, but...
The thing about Mix is that it covers such high end stuff that it isolates a lot of people who want to make music on a practical budget. I mean, yeah, multi-millon dollar studios every issue are cool-- 128 channel SSL mixing boards and $5,000 mics--but let's be realistic: Mix is a magazine for professional audio engineers (a dying breed by the way). Music of tomorrow is being made in home studios with software and plug-ins. People will argue with me of course but it's the same debate we had in the mid to late 80's...Digital vs. Analog? Now it's Hardware vs. Software? Big Budget Studio vs. Home Studio? There's room for both but one will dominate the other, no doubt about it. If you're a new musician or are interested in home recording you need to read Computer Music, Future Music, Music Tech, Electronic Musician, Sound on Sound, Recording or EQ. Even if you're focus isn't electronic music...every band needs a computer to record.

There are people who will vehemently deny this, naturally. But they are sound professionals gripped by fear and they see the future coming. "You need a professional to master your record"--no you can do it with software. "You need this $2,000 Avalon compressor to get that warm sound"--no, you can do it with software. "You need to have a pro listen to your mix"--no, you just need some good monitors and your ears. "You need to rent this $20,000 vintage Neumann mic to get that sound you need" --no a Samson or Rode will do for 150 bucks. "But they're an inexpensive knock-off of the 'real thing'"--if it breaks I'll buy another, then another then another and still come out ahead. "You need to rent this studio for 500 bucks an hour" --no, I'll do it sitting in my underwear in the comfort of my own home and not stress about the 6 months it took to save up for fours hours of studio time. I mean for 2 grand you can get a super fast PC, some software and a couple mics and do it at your own leisure.

But I guess I'd be worried too if I'd spent thousands of dollars on sound engineering school and 20 years in the biz labeling tapes or rolling up cables or working one slider during the recording of "Rumours." It's looking great for some and not so great for others.

5-0 out of 5 stars What a great magazine!
For anyone who is interested in professional audio - from studio recording to audio post production to live sound - Mix is the magazine!

of all the soap magazines this one is the best & I have received all of them. It had great information and lets you know what will be happening not some that happened a week ago. If you want to read a soap magazine get this one.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Read
since the Young&The Restless is my favorite Soap this Magazine provides a cool glimpse into the coming week or weeks ahead on things.they have a cool overview on topics with the people in the casts&changes that occur.a cool read for all your favorite soaps.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great way to get up to date on all your favorite soaps
I'm a working shlub, so most of the time I don't get to see my favorite soaps. Yes, I said my favorite soaps. My name is Patrick and I like watching soap operas. *gosh that was harder than I thought*. I grew up with soaps because of my mother and during summers and breaks, it was very easy to get back into them. So, I've latched on to a few I like (As The World Turns being my favorite), but I work. This makes it hard to stay on top of what is going on on various show, or when to expect momentous storylines to come to fruition. Fortunately, there's "Soap Opera Digest". It has a lot of nice feature stories for when I have more time, but it also has a lot of 'quick hit' sections that can bring up to date on what's going on with every show. There's a late-breaking news section to announce major cast changes or future landmark storylines. A 'VCR Alert' section gives upcoming dates on each show that will have major plot developments. There's a 'coming and going' section to keep me up to date on what's happening with the constantly revolving casts. Finally, there's a comprehensive recap section for each show reviewing the past week's events, while also providing teasers about future storylines. Yeah, I'm a dork and readily admit that I like soaps. Thanks to this magazine, I can always keep up to date on them.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Value for the Money
Look, if you are a hardcore soap fan, this magazine will provide you with a ton of information about what's about to happen on your soaps week to week. Given that the newsstand cost is $3.50 per issue, this annual subscription rate is not bad at all. I actually check out both SOD and Soap Opera Weekly. If I had to choose between the two of them, I think I would get Soap Opera Weekly. But if you like and can afford both, you should.

5-0 out of 5 stars Everything a Soap Fan Wants
SOAP OPERA DIGEST is the best soap magazine out there. It has everything a soap fan wants. Interviews, VCR Alerts, Latest News, Gossip, Casting News, Weekly Ratings, Fashion, Weekly Recaps, coverage of major events, and more. It's always a pleasure to read, and it treats the soaps with dignity representing them as well as they can. Most times they are accurate about who's staying at a show, or who's coming and going. The layout of the magazine overall is really nice and sophisticated, its organized extremely well. As a watcher of many soaps (All My Children, The Bold and the Beautiful, Guiding Light, One Life To Live, and As The World Turns), they give great synopsis material of what's been happening on the shows, in case you can't keep up with them. But even if you watch faithfully like I do, there's something for you in this magazine as well. I enjoy their articles which look at each of the 10 soaps currently airing and give a little background info on various things, whether they are talking about bad plot devices, best tearjerkers, best villain in town, whatever, its always a pleasure. They also give fans a chance to write in and ask questions, voice their opinions about current storylines, and more. Overall its very comprehensive for the soap fan and a must read! ... Read more

Around nearly as along as the television has been in American homes, TV Guide has been the TV reference guide for generations. With weekly regional issues jammed with clear and organized listings of what plays when, it's a compact and dependable guide for everyone from leisure-time weekender to professional couch potato. TV Guide remains in step with the explosion of cable channels, as television becomes the prime destination for innumerable sporting events, movies, and music. In addition to the listings, the week in television is covered alongside features on the top personalities and trends: visit the set of The Sopranos, get up-close with Janet Jackson before her special hits the airwaves, or ready yourself for the upcoming NFL season. The most recognizable and bestselling magazine of its kind, TV Guide is ground zero for what's happening on television. --Doug Thomas ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars TV Guide Needs a Makeover
I've subscribed to TV Guide for about forever. Even as recently as a couple of years ago I read many of the articles and regularly looked through the listings to find my favorite programs. However, with the increased diversification of cable and satellite companies, it seems that TV Guide has a problem covering some markets with thorough and reliable information.

It seems as though TV Guide's coverage of shows focuses more and more on sitcoms and teen shows. I've gotten to the point with shows like "Friends" that I keep hoping the show will completely disappear so that I won't have to see another article about how overpaid the stars are, and who they are sleeping with, and the tantrums they throw on the set (if they show up at all). What happened to articles about the relevance of TV to society? What about articles regarding quality acting (and "Friends" isn't it)?

Once upon a time TV Guide had substantial information, often probing information. For most of us, TV Guide made us feel like we were insiders to the happenings behind the scenes in television. Today TV Guide feels like another teen magazine. After having subscribed for what seems like forever, we are letting our subscription lapse. TV Guide needs to look to its roots and figure out how to be more dynamic in this era. There is still some good and relevant information, and the major channels are covered in the program listing. However, do not be surprised if some channels are not covered (we do not have Bravo listings in our hourly listings, as an example), and do not be surprised if all the articles are about teen and young adult shows and stars. Three stars for a magazine that once was THE magazine for television, and now no longer distinguishes itself.

1-0 out of 5 stars a rip off
no matter how many times you contact them, you will never get your magazine, or your refund. DON'T EVER SUSCRIBE!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars No where what it used to be
I'm a pretty big TV fan. I'm a member of a family thats gotten TV guide for almost 20 years until this last year. It just isn't what it used to be.

Why does TV guide cover movies in the theater. If the movie isn't going to be on TV for over a year why are they covering it. Don't sell out. That bugs me a lot. You are suppose to be informative about TV not movies.

None of the columns are no where what they used to be. Cheers and Jeers used to be good, but it has lost it's flavor. I don't know whats happended to the writer, but he's become pretty harsh and hard to please. Him bashing those teenage kids for abstinence was one of the straws that broke my back to this magazine.

TV Guide does do a pretty good job of letting you know whats on TV. If a TV show is hot they let you know about it. They've always done a good job in this area.

As far as letting you know whats on tv TV guide does a good job. It's a pretty easy to read format with the times, dates, and channels listed. They lay the primetime schedule out everyday in a nice grid thats really easy to read.

One of the things I've always liked that TV guide did was in the back of the magazine. They would list all of the movies on the premium channels in ABC order. If your a big movie fan you could do a little bit of reading and then maybe plan on watching a movie. They still do this and I enjoy that.

TV Guide needs to stop selling out. It is going to kill there subscription list one day. We don't get TV guide in our house anymore because of Direct TV. The channel guide gives us everything TV Guide does and it's pointless to get the magazine. It's not bad if your a big TV fan and it's a one of a kind. I have no use for it anymore though.

1-0 out of 5 stars The "New" TV Guide
Recently, TV Guide made permanent changes to the format of their magazine. They now list all weekday programming (except for prime time and the middle of the night) in a grid form -- all five days on two pages for each three-hour time frame. This has left them with considerably less room for any detail, and has resulted in the use of "Various Programs" as the only listing for many channels that don't choose to have the same exact program at the same exact time day after day.

I did not subscribe to the TV Guide for the miscellaneous gossip and short stories they have, I wanted a guide to what was on TV. They no longer provide this. "Various Programs" is useless to me, and, unfortunately, something used way to often on the stations I prefer.

Plus, they now work on having it in mailboxes on Monday the week before, which also means they are not too up-to-date. Changes made within a week or so before airtime don't make it to the magazine.

If you want to read stories about TV shows and actors or get your horoscope for the week, you may like the magazine.

However, if you want accurate and complete listings for what's on TV, I recommend you use something else, like the one that comes with the Sunday paper. Not as glossy, but at least it doesn't pretend to be something it's not.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good magazine, way too expensive
I used to subscribe to TV Guide but stopped because there was a 100% price increase during the time I subscribed. 'TV Channels' that comes with our local paper is just as accurate and I have money left over to get some magazine for the 'magazine' part that Channels doesn't have. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Bass Player's Resource
Bass Player features successful bass players every month. The subject matter is wide ranging. Towards the front of the magazine, there is a new gear section that gives a short description and thumbnail picture of new products such as effects pedals, speaker cabinets, strings, and what have you. Usually the magazine cover shot will be the main story where the magazine will give background information on a bass player and then interview him/her. One month you might find Paul McCartney, the next, Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. In the interview, the reader gets insight into the mind of working successful musicians and how they shape musical bass standards with their vision. Towards the back of the magazine, there are in-depth reviews of three or four pieces of musical equipment; always included are a bass guitar, often a bass amp, and speakers, strings, and pedals.

As you get further to the back, there are many lessons geared towards teaching the aspiring bass player how to do certain techniques they might have heard on a recording, as well as technical exercises to improve technique. One month, you may have a guest columnist teaching you about how to hold your hand over the fretboard on an upright, and the next, you may get lessons on how to keep better tempo with the drummer. This section is very valuable and pertinent to anyone aspiring to improve their playing style. Peppered throughout the magazine are ads from all the industry manufacturers and retailers advertising a broad spectrum of supplies available, as well as internet links to those products. These ads themselves are educational as they give the musician a chance to compare product specifications and pricing. If I had any requests from this magazine, it would be--how about a small humor section or a cartoon?

This magazine is a must-have for both the seasoned professional and the aspiring newbie. I never miss an issue and I learn something every time I read a new Bass Player. I always look forward to the next issue with great enthusiasm. Do yourself a favor and subscribe to this one today! :-)

5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous magazine for bass players
While many music rags limit there coverage to new and hip artists, while providing lots of song transcriptions, Bass Player is focused on teaching. The artists surveyed are always eclectic and exciting, and the lessons challenging and intriguing. In all, the focus of the magazine seems to me to be the philosophy of music, and is consistently intelligent and articulate. Every serious bass player would benefit from a couple of copies of this magazine.

While BP does do the occasional article on a straight-ahead jazz player or upright player, most of the editorial content (and what seesm like 90% of the cover photos) are deoted to the tattooed, pierced and punked up shredder of the month. Sure, there's actually a colum devoted to upright playing- sort of- but overall this is a magazine for young rockers. For them, it's great. For me... I'm still looking.

5-0 out of 5 stars Might be the best music magazine out there
Under the Radar might be the best American music magazine around these days. The writing and photography is great, and the layout and overall quality of the mag just gets better with each issue. If you're into indie-rock then you're bound to love at least some of the bands they've covered, they seem to interview almost everybody. They squeeze so many amazing bands into each issue. My only complaint is that is doesn't come out more regularly.

I've sampled a lot of indie-rock mags, and Under the Radar is definitely more ahead of the curve than indie magazines like Amplifier, Rockpile, Big Takeover, Resonance etc. (all worthy music mags) or than bigger mags like Rolling Stone, Spin, Filter, Blender etc. Most of my new favorite bands in the last year or two were discovered through Under the Radar, then a couple of months later I'd start reading about some of those bands in other music mags. Via Under the Radar I first discovered bands like The Thrills, The Sleepy Jackson, Mew, The Streets, Rilo Kiley, Clearlake, British Sea Power, Interpol, The Polyphonic Spree, The Dears, The Velvet Teen, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV On the Radio, Electrelane, Hot Hot Heat, Elbow, stellastarr*, The Shins, and the list goes on. Plus their articles on bigger bands are usually more in-depth than other US music mags. They've done great articles on Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Spiritualized, Modest Mouse, Death Cab for Cutie, Belle & Sebastian, The Flaming Lips, Blur, Super Furry Animals, Bright Eyes, Ride, Badly Drawn Boy, Broken Social Scene, etc. etc. And they were the last magazine to interview Elliott Smith before he died because they were the only ones who bothered to track him down and catch up with him. The photography is usually great too. For ahwile I wasn't into the layout, but they've really improved on that with the last couple of issues. There are other music mags that I buy too, like Devil In the Woods, Magnet and Big Takeover, but Under the Radar is the one I trust the most. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars For Those Who Need A Good Laugh
If you look at Alfred E Newman, the mascot of Mad magazine, you will notice he favors two well know celebrities, namely Ted Koppel and David Letterman. Ok, so much for my observations. If, you're an average Joe (or even if you are not) Mad magazine can give you a good laugh when you really need it the most. I grew up reading Mad, and it's one of the funniest magazines I ever read. My favorite characters of the magazine are Spy vs Spy. This is a magazine which spoofs movies, TV and life in general. It's a magazine which offers its readers the lighter side of life, a chance to turn red in the face with laughter, a chance to unwind, and a chance to be looked at by family members who think you've went off the deep end!!! Young or old, every culture, every race, and every social background, including people who can afford to use money to blow their nose on, everyone can enjoy this wonderful and witty publication. Presidents have subscribed to this magazine, race car drivers, factory workers, Septic Tank Cleaners, all have faithfully followed this magazine through the years when they really needed a good laugh, and now you can join the ranks of Mad by subscribing to this hilarious publication.

5-0 out of 5 stars This magazine is a lot better than youd think.
I hate to sound like Im exagerrating but this magazine changed my life. My favorite article is called A Mad Look At. Its usually about movies these days but sometimes its a look at modern day things like waterparks and its the funniest thing in the magazine. Monroe is the best new feature. I think the color enhances the magazine and plus it is really fun to read while listening to music. The artists are some of the most creative people Ive ever seen. The art of MAD means a lot more to me than all that Picasso and Chagall crap that old people are so fond of. The art actually reflects our own lives and that is why its so much better than the art you see at those yawn a minute art museums. Its honest and shows the world like it is. Anyways another great thing about this magazine is that its extremely easy to sign up for. You dont need a credit card,all you need is to fill in the subscription form and put it in the mail box. This magazine has elevated stupidity to a true art form.

4-0 out of 5 stars Keep An Open Mind
This a hilarious magazine, as long as you keep an open mind and don't mind when it insults your favorite things. Often I'll be laughing as I'm thinking,"The movie isn't that bad!" or "You don't have to be so mean to the people writing letters to you." I've decided that it's against Mad policy to be nice-even to themselves-so just because they make fun of it doesn't mean they don't like it, they just need something to make fun of. As long as you don't mind the insulting tone (and occaisonally disgusting images of people vomiting), this is a hilarious magazine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Magazine
I was given this magazine as a birthday gift by some friends. For any adult this is a fantastic gift to give a young adult. It may contain some inappropriate humor, but kids get that already. Your gift will be received with a true compassion and understanding for the hear that went into the giving of this gift. For kids this is an awesome magazine. It is hilariously funny. It is also intelligent humor and doesn't just poke fun at people.

Keep Reading.

5-0 out of 5 stars Alone in the field
Most guitar magazines are about mainly equipment and to a lesser extent, the thrash/metal/punk/whatever hero of the moment. "Acoustic Guitar" is different. It does talk about equipment, sure, but the primary focus has always been the music and the artists.

I have a couple years' worth of "Acoustic Guitar" on my bookshelves, unlike another popular magazine that gets read and tossed or given away. I don't save every issue, but I save a lot, as there's so much timeless information and good music to be found. In the few issues withing arm's reach I see a story on the music of "O Brother Where Are Thou?" with an arrangment of "Man of Constant Sorrow". Here's an article on Jazz Manouche and Django Reinhardt, with a tutorial written by John Jorgenson. Another issue spotlights the then-new MTV Unplugged phenomenon, and has a transcription of Clapton's unplugged "Layla".

Issues have covered contemporary singer-songwriters, Cuban "Son" music, African music, 1920s American Jazz guitarists... just about anything that can be played on a guitar. Evry issue is a surprise, and even if it doesn't have one of your favorites it'll have something you'll find interesting and useful.

When a customer WANTS to pay, why make it difficult for him? And since I DID pay a subscription..., why am I still having trouble getting all the issues? Customer service is NOT a phrase in their vocabulary.

4-0 out of 5 stars A must for serious acoustic guitar players
If you love to pull out that acoustic and knock off a few songs when the world seems to be going crazy and your soul needs the healing energy of music, then you should read this magazine. It provides good product reviews, playing tips, and song tabs. Also helpful are tips for tuning up and maintaining your guitar so it stays in the best playing condition. Although I am not a fan of magazine ads, the ads in this magazine are cool because they provide useful information about new products and services that would otherwise be difficult to discover. The interviews with top acoustic players like James Taylor, Neil Young & Bert Jansch are also a big plus. In all honesty, I do not read every issue--I grab issues when they have something I am interested in. In sum, if you are serious about playing that Martin or Gibson sitting in the corner, then read Acoutic Guitar every now and then--you will learn something! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Hero Private Jessica
Your article re Private Jessica contains the words "who was seriously injured when her maintenance group was ambushed in the early days of the invasion."
Surely you must know by now that she was injured when the vehicle she was riding in rear-ended the one in front of her and that's how she incurred her injuries. Please do not perpetuate the myth.
I enjoy your puzzles and that's how I got "hooked" (as in have to have it) on your magazine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Second best rag on the market
I read the Enquirer, the Star, and the Globe. This is cleary No. 2, but it's a must read. It generally runs different stories than the Enquirer, so you're not overlapping on your information. Ivana Trump does an advice column. It's not quite up to Enquirer standards, but I have to say, the headlines are far more entertaining and embarassing. I'm not sure who writes the headlines for these 3 rags, but the Globe has the one who does it best as far as really funny and really sensational. The headlines mesh with the photographs better, too. Whoever does the headlines for the Globe is truly a genius. I think I could hold my own with the Enquirer's and the Star's headline writers, but the Globe's writers are truly inspired. Plus, this is the rag that set up Frank Gifford with Suzen Johnson in that classic, Spring 1997 Kathy Lee "trilogy." Wow, I remember receiving and reading those three editions like I remember the moon walk. Way to go, Globe!

To be honest, if you can only afford one rag, get the Enquirer. If you can afford two, the Globe is for you! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Male-oriented, but still OK
As far as anime magazines in the U.S. go, Newtype is pretty good. The news & newtype section has introduced me to many great anime series I'd have never considered watching had I not read it *cough*s-CRY-ed*cough*, and it's always nice to get the DVD or two and check out some new series. The articles have a slight tendancy towards sounding like ads, but if you can get over that, it's OK. There are a lot of ads, which can be helpful if you're looking for places to buy the latest anime merchandise, but otherwise they're like popup ads - annoying, always there, and impossible to get rid of (unless you want to cut up the magazine).
To top it off, the magazine is obviously male-oriented. I don't reccomend it to female otakus at all. Guys would probably like it, but I'm not a guy, so I really can't tell you...
However, compared to the other U.S. anime magazines, newtype is big, has great bonus items, and has a lot of info on non-mainstream anime.
Overall, I'd like to give it about 3.5 stars, but since I can only do 3 or 4, I rounded up. Hope this helps you in deciding whether or not to get it, in any case...

3-0 out of 5 stars Another language version Newtype, Newtype USA
This is an animation magazine based on Japanese animation.
It offers latest news on new animation titles and releases.
But some of its articles are some what pointless to animation fan readers (Although some times the game and the J-pop may be related to some animation, like video game reviews and J-Pop related articles,) I find it that the latest news on new animation airing at Japan is sometimes too slow. The magazine comes with a free a DVD insert (usually from ADV), a poster, centerfold and eight postcards attached to the agazine. The centerfolds are always (except once) have been a female character. Although I am a guy, I think they should insert some male characters for female readers.

I luv it even thougth i never read it its that good

5-0 out of 5 stars The best magazine
Newtype USA is the best magazine for any anime fan. It has tons of information on new shows coming out great reviews, and great contests. It also has tons of extras lik a free dvd,poster,centerfold,manga,and stickers. The magazine may be a little expensive,but its worth it. Any anime fan should get this magazine. If you dont get it than your not really an anime fan.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Anime Mag
Best US anime magazine. I've read other reviews saying that it fails to deliver in comparison to the Japanese version of Newtype --I have never read the Japanese version so I can't comment-- however Newtype USA magazine is the best source for anime here in the US. The magazine is packed with goodies. I have read others magazines, like Animerica(mediocre), and to be honest they do not measure up to the quality and fullness of Newtype. I like the fact that every issue includes a DVD featuring an upcoming episode of certain series, which varies from month to month, as well as previews and trailers of upcoming releases. Also included are either a poster with a centerfold and stickers, or a poster, postcards and a centerfold, and so on. The quality of the images and the magazine itself is superb; each month's cover is unique in its class. The only downside that I think everyone will agree on is the price; but if we compare the value of what you get with Newtype versus other magazines out there that give you next to nothing for the same price, Newtype definitely takes the lead. Anime fans rejoice for we have a good source of anime news! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Got my "Mojo" workin'
Music, music, music. That's what "Mojo" is about, and ALL it's about. If you're looking for info on pop stars' latest paramours, or rants about the government, look elsewhere. This magazine is a sleek, polished, well-informed music magazine that focuses on the core of what people listen to.

"Mojo" covers all the bases with information about rock (present and classic), country, R&B, alternative, punk, and a speckling of other types. In-depth, professional articles -- at least one big one, and a number of smaller ones, interviews and analysis alike. Not to mention, of course, the wealth of reviews and concert reports.

Unlike many music magazines, "Mojo" focuses both on the past and present. Present: Norah Jones, Outkast, Ryan Adams, Flaming Lips, Strokes and David Bowie. Past: Led Zeppelin, Elvis, Ramones, the Beatles (naturally!), Pink Floyd, Nirvana, and so forth. They also take a hard look at up-and-coming new bands and performers, without letting hype get in the way. They balance out respect for rock's illustrious past, while acknowledging the worth of new bands and music.

As an extra bonus, nearly every issue of "Mojo" comes with a CD firmly attached to it. For example, one was a collection of classic blues songs that have since been covered by everybody from Jimi Hendrix to Aerosmith to the White Stripes. It's the icing on a cake that is already sweet on its own.

"Mojo" is music-lover's Bible. One thing it isn't: it's not people who love trends and celebrity. It's a solid, ultra-informative collection of info about every kind of good music under the sun. A winner.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Music Mag Ever
Hands down, Mojo is the most well-written, informed magazine concerning popular (not pop) music published today; covering rock & roll, rhythm & blues, country...I'm talking the vintage stuff. A fat wealth of information without the pandering BS and hype contained in nearly ALL comparable U.S. publications. Reviews are well-informed and referenced, interviews and articles are well-researched and do not insult the intelligence of either the reader or the subject. Ever wanna' know what went on in the studio with Alex Chilton and The Replacements? Did Johnny Cash really set a mountain on fire? Mojo usually does a couple of massive feature articles on popular and/or influential bands of the past,plus short interviews with personalities (ever wonder what Tony Blair listens to when he gets up in the morning?), a few hundred record and concert reviews, new releases, UK club dates. Makes Rolling Stone and SPIN look like the TeenBeat rags they truly are. Well worth the price. The only thing the US produces that comes close is MAGNET.

4-0 out of 5 stars Like Rolling Stone Used To Be
Actually, it deserves 4.5 stars. This is a Brit magazine that offers great articles that cover classic bands' tales as much as keeping you tuned in to the latest waves of musicians, from Americana to Blues to Brit Pop. There's at least one excellent, long article per issue which will tell you more about bands you thought you knew about than any magazine published in USA (check old issues for Dylan's or Pink Floyd's, for instance).
If you are old enough to remember Rolling Stone when it concerned itself with musicians and other artists creating new boundaries for popular art, rather than catering the current, pathetic BritneySpear-NightmareMachine ... you would enjoy Mojo. By the way, it's not five stars because there's a better mag out there: Uncut.

3-0 out of 5 stars MONO!
I cannot believe how wonderful this magazine is! I mean if you ever wanted to find out about who Madonna is sleeping with at the moment, then this is the place to find out! However, if you actually want to know about what is happening in the music industry, then PLEASE DON'T BUY MOJO!

And just WHAT IS THE DEAL with a 10-issue in-depth analysis of the long-term emotional and mental effects of thousands of misguided kids finally realizing that the Monkees didn't even play their own instruments? WHO CARES?!?! The Monkees were a lame band. Everyone knew they were fake. Did you really NEED to spend 10 consecutive issues (Count them - TEN!) interviewing patients of mental hospitals, the homeless, and hapless politicians to fill up space in your rag?

SHEESH! Save yourselves some money - Buy Hustler. Same price, has the same amount of music coverage, but its much more interesting to look at.

5-0 out of 5 stars Music No. 1
This is my favorite magazine that has stories about all types of music. Mojo dwarf Rolling stone magazine and others like rolling stone. Everytime the latest mojo is released i'm excited about what's inside. The only 1 thing that i don't like about mojo is their covers they always have the same artist or bands on the cover of their magazine like the Beatles, Led zepplin, bob dylan (great artist) but how many times are we going to see these artist on the cover although they did have marvin gaye, Bob marley on the cover of
their magazine. They will have interviews with different artist, but they will not feature them on the cover. All these rock bands which are great, but feature all types of artist just like in the magazine. Have Bill Withers, Nina Simone, Muddy Waters, John Coltrane, Egar & Johnny winter, Sly & The Family Stone - the whole band & Not just Sly, The Allman Band Brothers, Etta James, Joe Cocker, Joan Baez, Arlo Guthie, John Lee Hooker, Tower of Power, Osibisa, Donny Hathaway, Sarah Vaughan, Cream, Ten Years After... different artist & groups on the cover, represent what's in the magazine.
There is no magazine on different music that can compare to mojo period.
Question: Does anyone know how can i get the august 2001 edition of mojo with sly stone on the cover? It's out of print. ... Read more
