4-0 out of 5 stars Motivates and Inspires You To Better Things

Oprah is living testimony that you have to constantly strive to become a better person. There is no quick remedy to become a better and positive person, and instead you have to constantly work at it. Of course, we don't have Oprah's wealth and support system to help us, but what we do have is this magazine. This is a great self-help magazine.

In today's world where we are constantly strapped for time, and our attention span cannot last more than 5 minutes, this is a great magazine to read and imbine motivation and inspiration.

What makes this magazine a little different from others is that it has examples of real people that you and I can relate to. What I find very interesting is the last page where Oprah pens her thoughts, and reveals her inner-feelings. I remember that in one of the issues Oprah mentions that even though she can afford to buy lots of clothes, she still stops and asks herself if she needs to buy this new piece of clothing. You instantly know that Oprah does not believe in squandering away her wealth, but is careful but how she spends it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Greatness
I love O Magazine because it really helps me to be the very best person I can be.

I am continually striving to improve my life and my circumstance, and this magazine brings me fresh ideas and perspectives about that every single month.

Some of the other greatest and most helpful items that I've discovered also include...

GIANT STEPS by Tony Robbins

The NEW SEX NOW dvd by New Sex Institute

GODDESS WORSHIP video by Dr. Clarke

4-0 out of 5 stars Be the Advocate!

Like millions of others I am Oprah follower. I do watch the show as often as my time allows. However, I think that the magazine is many steps behind the show. Maybe it is because we are all used to do some errands when the commercials come on TV during the show. Maybe because the show does not seem to be contracted out to other celebrities to fill the void...

I am simply overwhelmed by the amount of advertising in the magazine.-- What a waste of paper! I imagined that "Oprah Inc." is rich enough to give up on some extra revenues for the sake of better content...

I also find that it would be more interesting to diversify the articles with some not-so-accomplished authors as Dr. Phil. Why the magazine does not bring to the daylight some great books that deserve much more attention than they are presently given? It is a big mystery to me that such a great volume like "Can We Live 150 Years?" by Dr. Tombak, remains obscure, while other authors, are being thrown in our face day by day to the point of nausea... I'd imagine that this would be a great opportunity for such media like Oprah Magazine to step up and play the role of the advocate, discoverer, promoter, or whatever you call it. Some things simply need more publicity, so why pass on the opportunity and play the same old record again and again...

So much critique and still 4 stars? Hey, I criticize to improve things that I like. Oprah magazine deserves 4 stars, but it can be even better...

3-0 out of 5 stars Great Magazine However...
This magazine is unlike other magazines that are focused on gossip, foolishness and sex.I read almost every article in each issue that I have received thus far.

Upon receiving the first issue in my subscription to O Magazine, I was pleased to find that particular issue was 350+ pages thick.I later found that approximately 75% of that issue and following issues were advertisements.If I wanted to flip through multiple advertisements, I'd subscribe to Vogue or Cosmopolitan.If O Magazine published articles alone, it would consist of no more than 100 pages, which would probably cause a huge reduction in the cost ...

4-0 out of 5 stars She has survived past so many that have tumbled.
Overall, the magazine is positive and forwardly focused so in that sense there are moments of empowerment. The photography is phenomenal and the features are well-written but can be quite bland.I think one issue is often simply more of the same from the issue before so an issue here or there is interesting but a subscription would be redundant.

How many women are there who have Oprah's business acumen and are intelligent enough to stay out of controversial personal entanglements like "O" say Martha or Rosie?I have to be in awe of Oprah's achievements and the staying power to continue the selling success with a magazine that by all accounts is a photographic journey of Oprah on every cover - every month for five years.No super-model on the planet or even the most succesful actress can include that on a resume! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The smart thing? subscribe to The Floss!
i've been a big fan of mental floss since its inception. every issue continues to impress me and the magazine just keeps getting better. the magazine is not only funny and entertaining, but also a wonderful resource for anyone with a love of learning. there is no other magazine like it! i've shared this magazine with friends and family here in california and its been a huge hit out here. in spite of the magazine's fresh and somewhat irreverent appearance, people of all ages would appreciate its content. i highly recommend this magazine!

im looking forward to the mental floss boardgame and calendar!

5-0 out of 5 stars mental floss
"mental floss" the cover says "feel smart again"--- you'll feel smart, you'll feel touched by some articles, and much of the time you'll feel a chuckle coming on.... This is such an entertaining magazine with contributors guaranteed not to be "ordinary." I love each issue. I have begun using "mental floss" subscriptions as gifts and don't plan to ever toss an issue in the trash..that's because each time I pick one up I find something new. Chock-full of interesting facts- yes, some are useless, all are informative, some are thought provoking, and MANY are funny, "mental floss" is the greatest new magazine.
Highly recommended for everyone looking for something new and smart.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Thing In My Mailbox!
I have subscribed to "Mental Floss" from the very beginning, and now look forward to each new issue anxiously. Founded just a couple of years ago by two former college roommates who wanted a fun, hip, urbane magazine to make them smarter with style, "Mental Floss" has become a huge success, and is one of the few new magazines that debut each year that is actually prospering.

Each issue is loaded with information on interesting topics, from how common (or very uncommon) things work, to odd and unknown histories and biographies that you will not find anywhere else (and if you did, certainly not in as condensed and succinct a form as you will find here.) Without exception, the writers are literate, knowledgeable, and good humored.

The things that you don't know will amaze you after reading this magazine. Try "Mental Floss", and I am willing to bet that you will be hooked. I know I am.

4-0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking, but not too serious
Finally! A magazine that does not insult your intelligence, but is still fun. This is not just another magazine full of whiners with good vocabularies. It will inform, but still laugh at itself. Fun reading for the thinking person, who doesn't care what Britney Spears is doing!

5-0 out of 5 stars Be patient, it's worth the wait......
For the disgruntled reviewer, when you order through it takes longer to reach the publisher. does state it will be 12-16 weeks, to receive your first magazine after you order. If you ordered in March, chances are you'll start with the June/July issue, as the publication is a bimonthly. Sometimes the double month's issue i.e. June/July is referred to as July. I'm betting you'll start with that issue. There may be some confusion, as far as when you are starting, as compared to what issue you are starting with.

I have been a subscriber for a while, & expect the June/July issue to arrive towards the end of May, if the schedule remains the way it's been previously. The magazine, as well as the customer service is superior by far. Give it a chance, I'm sure you'll be "VERY PLEASED" in the long run. I've renewed my subscription up to the year 2007, I enjoy the magazine so much! Trust me, once you start receiving it, you'll be delighted! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Paste appeals to wide age span
I've forgotten how I got turned onto Paste; I think it might have been through an ad in Oxford American. Anyway, I'm a sucker for music magazines, so I gave it a chance. I was so surprised to discover that Paste was addressing the very artists and types of music in which my interest had evolved. And what's more, the CD that accompanied it was loaded with good music.

I might as well tell you. I'm 59 years old but still into music and still turned on by the new and the old. To make a point about Paste, it also appeals to my 24-year-old daughter and 37 year-old son-in-law. Why? Each issue is packed with information and features on the knowns and unknowns, written in a literate voice and in complete yet concise manner. It also is colorful and well-designed. The sampler CDs are not those throw-away kind either. Somebody spends a heck of a lot of time selecting the right artists and the right tunes. If you like mixed CDs, you'll enjoy these.
Through the articles and through the sampler CDs,Paste has turned me on to some wonderful music that the members of my family enjoy sharing.I hope others will give it a spin - no pun intended. If it is not what is happening, it is what should be happening. To use an expression from my generation and yours. It's what's cool.

5-0 out of 5 stars Know What You're Getting
When you read many music magazines, from Hit Parader to Rolling Stone to No Depression, you read articles and reviews about the hot new hitmakers, and they hope you'll take what they have to say into consideration when you decide where your music money is going to go. But you have to take a lot on faith, because you don't know what the music really sounds like. That's where Paste is different from most: they bundle in a sampler CD stuffed to the gills with highlights from the current issue. You make your decision with all the information you could need or want right there on your stereo.

Paste doesn't appear to favor a particular form of music. For lack of a better handle, you could say they favor music to which a geezer like me can understand the words. Americana, folk, blues, rock, roots, and even some unclassifiable material fill up the pages and the disk. Though the emphasis is mostly on music too esoteric to get radio airplay, the editors aren't naive. They know that putting Norah Jones or Sarah McLachlan on the cover is a good way to move copy.

This magazine covers a lot of music you won't hear on the radio, but it's not so far out that you'll run into somebody who thinks beating on a piano with a hammer is music. It'll be something eminently listenable, even for a stick-in-the-mud like me. By allowing readers to get a good listen to current trends in up-and-coming music, Paste is also good for working musicians and music business professionals. It puts you one step ahead of the curve without having to spend rafts of dough on CDs or trawling through the lousy online music for the one MP3 that stands out.

Paste's masthead promises "Signs of Life in Music and Culture." This is no lie. Though the main emphasis of this magazine is recorded music, there are lengthy sections dedicated to cinema, books, and other cultural trends. The thrust of these sections is primarily in terms of winnowing good cultural content from bad, rather than being hip and with-it, so it's ideal for people who are more interested in what's good than in what's good.

This title costs more than most music magazines, because of the sampler CD, but it's worth it. If you care about music for its quality more than for its faddish factors, this is the title that will let you keep abreast of where the good stuff is to be had.

3-0 out of 5 stars Three Stars for a Good Idea
It sounds good--"signs of life in music and culture"--but the writing is definitely not up to par. Yet. I've been a subscriber for the past year and though I've been disappointed overall, I have seen some improvement in the quality of the articles over the year, although not nearly enough to get me to re-subscribe. I found I was more interested in their book and movie reviews than their articles on music and musicians. The latter tend to be short sugary praise columns on mostly very young and very white pop bands who are apparently popular on college campuses. The feature writing lacks soul (as do the CDs) and is about as profound as the average Amazon customer review, which we can get free! They try to cover too much in each issue and end up covering nothing really.

Having been a fan of much older music all my life (My parents' stopped buying records around 1978 but they had a little bit of everything--Gospel, blues, folk, rock...), I thought Paste might point me to some good music by my own generation. Alas. I've been consistently disappointed by the sampler CDs, usually finding that the only tracks worth revisiting are the ones by old vets such as June Carter Cash and The Subdudes. Most don't live up to the hype in my opinion. For instance, the blurb introducing "Melancholy Polly" by Allison Moorer on the latest sampler: "...Contains some fantastic, heartbreaking lines like, 'She is not a starlet with a red guitar / Just an easy target for a broken heart.'" Huh? Somehow I completely missed the "fantastic, heartbreaking" part when I listened to the song. Maybe I've been spoiled for too long by Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash, but if the likes of Moorer, Ben Kweller, Five for Fighting, Howie Day and many others are any indication, we're in for a long dry spell in the world of popular music. There are some real "signs of life" here and there (Jolie Holland! And they did a rather good feature on Robert Randolph recently), but Paste isn't very good at sifting the grain from the, well, you know. Like I said, they've shown signs of improvement so far and there's no reason why they shouldn't continue to get better. Could be that they're just young and there's nothing wrong with that--gotta start somewhere.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great writing about great music
I bumped into paste magazine when browsing through Borders looking for something other than the usual pop-peddling tat found on the UK newsstands today. The cover (for issue 5) grabbed my attention - Joe Henry, Emmylou Harris, Guided By Voices - people already populating my music collection. Great, I thought, at last a magazine that fits my tastes. This should be a good read.

So I bought it, sat down with a large cup of joe & started reading. I couldn't put it down! As well, as the artists above, there were articles on people I'd never heard of; articles on people I'd always wanted to hear something by, but never gotten around to; and articles on artists that made me want to go out & buy their music there & then. The copy I picked up didn't have a sampler CD (someone had nabbed it from the inside before I got there!), but it made me want to read more by these guys.

I've since subscribed and find paste to provide wide-ranging content, not particularly genre-based (but if you were really into pigeonholing I'd probably say they covered Americana singer-songwriter artists most of all), and not always favourable. This is not a sycophantic bow to all things underground & trendy (as someone else mentioned, they know when to put a megastar on the cover), neither is it afraid to shout about music it loves from the proverbial rooftops. They've even gone so far as to set up their own label.

The sampler CD is a revelation as they cram it full of artists covered in that particular issue and as another reviewer wrote you will spend a lot of money trying to track down the individual CDs discussed within the magazine.

In short, this is great writing about great music, with no preconceived ideas about what great music is. I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone interested in music & culture today.

5-0 out of 5 stars Signs of Life in Music and Culture - Hopeful and Helpful!!!
I recently read an interview with the editor of this magazine, Josh Jackson, and it impressed me enough to look for Paste at my local bookstore. Having picked up a copy and listened to the sampler CD it comes with, I can tell you it is well worth the price (I've already signed up for a subscription!). Paste deals with intelligent, well-crafted music - both faith-based and otherwise. By their own admission, the editors of paste find that "one of the most annoying things in music today is the complete segregation of genres within the industry", so they focus on all kinds of "good music", whatever genre it falls into. The sampler CD is excellent, and of course, covers a variety of genres and artists. The one I received had better known artists like Five for Fighting, Indigo Girls, Norah Jones and Edie Brickell, but it also introduces lesser known artists(and now favorites of mine), like The Lost Trailers, Starflyer 59, Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers, and Ben Kweller. The articles inside encouraged me to check out bands like Addison Road and Robert Randolph & the Family Band. All in all, it has been great for introducing me to some of the best 'unknown' music out there!

Also, in the interview, the editor, Josh Jackson says they try to make Paste a "magazine that doesn't objectify women, that doesn't glorify drug addiction, that tries to respect the artists it covers, and that writes about all of the grand themes of searching, of loneliness, of love, of darkness, of hope that popular music is often courageous enough to tackle."

One warning, as a previous reviewer has mentioned, reading Paste will cause you to spend some money, as you find hidden gems of artists and albums you hadn't heard before, and now really want to own! Amidst a sea of commercialism and crassness in music and entertainment magazines today, Paste is a weclome sign of how beauty, truth and artistry can still be celebrated and enjoyed in popular music. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Banjo Newsletter
As a newcomer to playing the banjo (< 1 year), I find the Banjo Newletter to be a wealth of information about the 5 string banjo and the various styles. They also review banjo teaching aids (books, CD's, DVD's etc.) as well as recent releases of CD's of interest to the banjo world. Each issue has a large range of articles for all interests, including interviews with musical celebrities, and lots of songs in tablature format. The paper newletter is supplemented with a very robust web site with MP3's that can be downloaded. This is very helpful to hear the timing of various licks. You can also order older newsletters with interviews or songs of interest.
All in all, the money for the subscription is money very well spent. The banjo newsletter authors really love their work and it shows! Keep up the excellent newsletter!

5-0 out of 5 stars This is the best
This has to be the best on-going publication for five string banjo players in the world. If you have a question, it will probably be answered in Banjo Newsletter. Songs, tabs, licks, interviews, tips, tricks, you name it. If it has anything to do with the five string banjo it will be in Banjo Newsletter. Truly a labor of love presented by people who want to see this wonderful part of Americana remain alive and not flushed down the toilet. Highly recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars THE magazine for 5-stringers

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 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

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

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

5-0 out of 5 stars An absolute must for any serious filmmaker
Whether you are a technical guru or someone who's emphasis is on the words, any serious filmmaker who takes his or her craft seriously will love American Cinematographer. The official magazine of the American Society of Cinematographers, this magazine gives you in depth interviews with DPs and Directors on the technical approach towards the shooting of the picture. They cover not just lab soups and lighting techniques, but also the approach to the script, design notes on how to visually approach the script - in other words, a great detailed overview of how this particular crew of filmmakers went about creating the visual language of the film. And not just film - as technology advances, and more films are shot on video, this magazine gives the same great coverage to those pictures as well - from Star Wars to Anniversary Party. While it's true that there are only so many films that AC can cover each issue but I think you'll end up feeling like I do - that I wish they could cover them all! ... Read more

well, if you're a follower of the genre this is the magazine for you. each issue has at least 1 interesting, well researched article on a band you've heard of. the album reviews tend to be a bit bland - hard to get candid criticism here. but the ads and listings for events are top notch, and the letters and questions sections are full of interesting historical tidbits. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic
This magazine will make you think. While it's a bit denser than Bust, it's still very witty and entertaining and even funny. I take exception to the reviewer who found it angry; however, I think that the editors and writers have a very clear vision and insight into pop culture and can be quite passionate, yet it's still fun to read. Also this magazine deals with a whole gammit of issues that range from body image, to sexuality, to sexism, to the media portrayal of women, and other social rights issues. You should give it a try.

5-0 out of 5 stars What Women Want
This is a zine for real women. Women who don't define themselves in terms of what they are not (men, supermodels, etc.)
Perfect reading for emancipated minds and those needing a push.

4-0 out of 5 stars Intelligent, but jaded
This is an interesting magazine. It really is geared toward lesbians and has a bit of an angry side in it's writing although it makes good points and writing is well done. List price per issue is only 4.95. A one year subscription is 15.00 w/ a second subcription 20%. ... ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Poor eye for Talent.
I am a fairly proficient hard rock drummer and feel I have a good knowledge of who are and who were the great rock drummers. I only wish Modern Drummer possessed the same knowledge. Their featured drummers are either modern day heavy metal/grundge drummers from bands like Slipnot, Marilyn Manson and Rage Against the Machine, Godsmack or lightweight jazz drummers who most rock drummers are unfamiliar with. Heck, Marilyn Manson used a drum machine up until the last few years, that's how important he felt a live drummer would be to his sound. Like another reviewer said these modern day grunge,/metal/industrial/goth drummers are "flash in the pan" drummers with no solid rock drummer influences - only the drone of distorted grundge melodies fill their their heads. Another odd anomoly is the drummers they celibrate from the 60's, 70's and 80's, drummers like Bill Bruford, Steve Smith and Dennis Chambers. Their focus is only on technique here (they exalt Smith to legendary status and allow this candy-ass Journey drummer to be the authority on many of the "drummer tip" articles). All out, raw, but talented drummers like Jimmy Chamberlain, Dave Grohl, Matt Cameron, and Zach Starkey get short shift. Look, I do appreciate the lesson sections, but let drummers like I have just mentioned give tips on drumming once in a while. Furthermore classic drummers like Ian Paice, Mitch Mitchell, Carmen Appice, and John Bonham are never featured. Kieth Moon received a lame feature in a recent article on the 25th anniversary of his death because he epitomizes the type of percussionist Modern Drummer Magazine despises, a balls-out, creative, beyond-defining type of drummer. Placing these fat armed, tattoo-laden, heavy-handed, modern day heavy-metal drummers on the cover is just as cheap as the low end models of Pearl, Gretch and Ludwig drums they like to advertise. If you would feature top of the line drummers and top of the line gear you would certainly get more subscribers.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Drum Magazine
The best all around drum magazine, ever. There have been imatators, but no other magazine will give you the deticated hard working staff modern drummer has. The magazine is packed with new product reviews, stories on todays top drummers, and a cd/book/video review section that has led me to some of the best drumming imaginable. If you are a serious drummer or just starting out, Modern Drummer is the ultimate source of drumming knowlegde.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best, bar none.
Modern Drummer is much more than a magazine about drummers; it's a magazine about DRUMMING. You simply can't find a better magazine that keeps you on top of everything drum-related. From new product reviews, to tuning techniques, to health columns about good playing posture and other drummer woes, to the well-written and informative articles, Modern Drummer is the best source of drumming information. Who knew that by reading a review with Godsmack's drummer, I'd learn that putting cotton balls in my floor tom is a great muffling technique? All music genres are covered in the magazine, with sheet music and guest columns from the world's greats showing how it's done.

If you're a drummer, do yourself a favor and get a subscription today. You will value this magazine for the rest of your life.

I am sorry but there is no better Magazine for drummers
Hands down the best

3-0 out of 5 stars Hit and miss
I've been a Modern Drummer reader/subscriber for a very long time and it's consistently been a decent magazine.

MD does excellent product reviews. They are always interesting to read and give a good idea of how a product sounds (always tricky) or works. Whenever MD focuses on equipment, be it the reviews or news of new equipment, the magazine excels. They do a very good job of keeping up with manufacturers all over the world. And this is no mean feat considering that the number of types of instruments and equipment that fall under the category of drums and percussion is probably as vast as all other instruments combined.

Also one of the better aspects of the magazine are the "filler" (nondepartmental) articles that vary from month to month. The editors do a respectable job of filling the mag with articles that will interest all aspects of the drumming community. Community also plays a big part. Drummers, unlike guitarists, tend to love each other rather than despise others with talent. Little things like updates on older drummers, world drummer features, new drummers featured every month, birthdays, and even obituaries foster this sense. The latter is one of the best aspects of the magazine, as the editors really hold the community feel in mind when doing obits, often featuring drummers and music folks that would never get press anywhere else. Having some history of drumming presented in this manner helps to appreciate those that went on before us.

MD also tries to help instructionally, publishing charts and transcriptions of famous drum performances. The editors consistently try to educate on several fronts, including technique, buying tips, how to make a living as a drummer, and so on. All these features are invaluable.

There are some flaws, though, with the biggest being the main interviews. Featured drummers have traditionally been big names, but those names anymore are from bands I have either never heard of or are lopsidedly in the metal/grunge/industrial arena. Most of these guys are here today and gone tomorrow. Plus, they usually have little to say about the craft. And their final critique: I get tired of all the multi-tattooed, "I'm Cool", metal coverboys staring out from the magazine rack in my living room. Nothing says style like have some guy with piercings all over his face brooding at friends, neighbors, and in-laws. Some of these guys on the covers even scare children.

Sadly, technique and craft are often not discussed in great detail in the main interviews. One recent edition had interviews with two veterans, Stewart Copeland and Vic Firth. And while this was one of the better copies of the mag, little of technique was discussed with these two drumming giants. If you have heard either play, and you are a drummer, you'd love to know how they do it and from where they pull their style. Considering that interviews comprise a large portion of the magazine, this can be disconcerting.

The magazine also features reviews of recordings, but seems to pull its punches, possibly for fear of losing advertisers. The lowest rating you almost ever see for recordings is a "6" out of "10", with most being an "8". Hey, I listen to a lot of music and the sub-6 category consists of about 90% of what is out there.

The last con is the look of the magazine. For a music magazine, it's not very hip-looking. The design of the magazine seems to always be stale, even when it is updated from time to time.

Still, despite its lacks, MD holds up. There are few other options for magazines for drummers, so you don't have a lot of choices anyway. Considering this, MD gets an extra star in the review simply for being there for those of us who like to hit the skins. ... Read more
