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
I really don't have much to say except that if you love playing the 5-string banjo then you will find something of interest and amusement in every issue of BNL. It is a real bargain and clearly a labor of love of its editors and writers.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Resource!
I love this magazine! Interesting articles, great bits of tab for advanced and beginner alike. A terrific magazine for the dedicated banjo player. ... 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

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

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.

5-0 out of 5 stars This Rocks
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

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for people serious about fingerstyle
A music teacher of mine suggested this magazine when I got interested in some more advanced fingerstyle method. The music selections in each issue are from some of the best known fingerstyle guitarists on the planet. Selections range for Irish/celtic jigs to flamenco to classical to jazz. If you really want to expand your skill and knowledge of the guitar invest in this magazine.

The only downside is that most of the music is pretty difficult to play. Some of the more difficult selections have taken me several months of daily practice to be able to play them correctly and I've been playing for over ten years. But overall Fingerstyle Guitar is an excellent addition to a serious guitar player's collection.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good, but not for every guitarist
I've just gotten my last issue of my 6-issue subscription, and I think I'll let it run out without renewal. Not because I didn't enjoy the magazine, but because I now have enough music to learn for the next year, and I don't need anymore.

The articles aren't that interesting, what sets this magazine apart is the wide range of music and genres that are included, and the accompanying recordings, which are really nice, since it gives you a "feel" for the subject matter that you can't get otherwise.

Most of it is fairly advanced though, and certainly not a magazine for the beginner. On average, there's about one song per issue that I can play. Beginners should look elsewhere.

I have noticed a few errors in their transcriptions. Sometimes it's a number on the wrong line of tab, sometimes it's a whole measure that's erroneously duplicated. Sometimes it's written a little odd, and can be difficult to read quickly (eg. sometimes the strong beat isn't made to stand out from the others).

It's expensive, but it's worth the price. It will probably cost you the same to buy a fingerstyle book with the same amount of music, but without the recordings.

In conclusion, it's worth a try. Pick up an issue at the stand and try it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for intermediate to advanced, not for begginner
The best part of this magazine is the wonderful music that comes with the CD. Its actually worth the subscription to just get the CD. It is first-class fingerpicking music.

However, the music that they transcribe is quite advanced, I would find it hard to believe that anyone but a professional could play most of the transcriptions in the magazine. They have been making a move towards some more intermediate music, there is maybe a song every other issue that is within my grasp.
However, there is some value in learning parts of songs that you can struggle to get.

I have been a subscriber for about 4 years.

5-0 out of 5 stars Bout Time
If you are into music production from a hip hop stand point, dont sleep on this mag. All the questions that us up and coming producer have will be answered in the mag. I got the first two issues and it was money well spent. Lets face it, Source and Vibe a artist based. Plus they are big time now so half of the mag is full of ads and bull Sh--. Not this one. Before you go out a buy that 3,000 mpc that everybody says you need, flip this Scratch mag open and see what people in the bussiness have to say.

2-0 out of 5 stars Bad Writing Prevails
Filter magazine covers good bands (for the most part) and sometimes has nice photos and presentation, but the writing is often beyond pretentious, and often has more to do with the writer than the actual bands they are interviewing. For example, they had an interview with Robin Guthrie from the Cocteau Twins, but first there was a whole long intro in which the writer explained how he got laid once to a Cocteau Twins album - who cares. Then they had an article on Death Cab for Cutie in which half the article consisted of the writer expressing his jealousy that Death Cab were getting laid when he wasn't. Another article on Doves was more concerned with the Hacienda club in Manchester than the band, just because they played there once and the writer happened to go there once. Filter once interviewed Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst, arguably one of the best songwriters of his generation, and actually asked him if he'd ever date Winona Ryder - how insulting. For an article on Hot Hot Heat they devoted a whole page to interviewing the musical director of LA's KROQ radio station about why they played Hot Hot Heat, when maybe a paragraph would have sufficed. For a recent cover story the put The Strokes and Lou Reed in a room together. Sounds great, right? Unfortunately, they were hardly any quotes from either The Strokes or Lou Reed. Most of the article consisted of the author's pretentious musings on what the meeting of the two artists meant and so forth. Most of the reviews are positive, and that's because Filter is also a marketing company that's paid by the labels of the very artists that they review. I'm not saying that there aren't good things to be found in this magazine. I'd certainly rather read it than Spin, Rolling Stone or Alternative Press. But then there are definitely other music magazines I'd rather read, like Mojo and especially Under the Radar. Filter's motto is "Good Music Will Prevail." It's too bad that in the pages of the magazine bad writing prevails.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pick it up, love it. Read about what music is today.
Of all the glossy, coffee table-ready music magazines out there, this is by far the best. A little thinner than say a Q or Spin, but that's good since there are less annoying advertisements taking up half of the magazine. The articles are honest and intelligent, without taking things too seriously. The bands they choose to review are also along the same lines, and are often reviewed before to mass media hype or superstardom. But they do review the more established music darlings like Radiohead and David Bowie, but in a way that's fresh and not they same article you've read 5 times before in other glossies. So get your artists while they're young and apreciate the ones that have been around the block a few times a whole lot better.
If you get a music magazine subscription this year, get Filter. I swear you won't be dissapointed. They're also fairly new, so please support newbie in the world of mass mosters like Rollingstone and Spin. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Teen Magazine Ever!
POPSTAR! has been my favorite magazine for a long time because in every single issue, I end up finding pictures and articles on every star that I am interested in, and also some newcomers. They always have good words and pictures on Lindsay Lohan, Hilary Duff, Ashton Kutcher, Chad Michael Murray, Justin Timberlake, Raven, Jessica Simpson, Avril Lavigne, Aaron Carter, Britney Spears, Good Charlotte, Simple Plan, Adam Brody, Olsen Twins, Jesse McCartney, Greg Raposo, Orlando Bloom, Usher, Harry Potter cast...I could go on and on and on. My room is half devoted to their cool pinups and posters. They have good fashion stuff, funny pictures, fun games...big shout-out to my aunt for subscribing me four years ago. I just love this magazine. I don't like the other celebrity magazines because they're more racy and have less "stuff" LOL. I would say this is my #1 favorite magazine. I also like COSMOGIRL! and I sort of like GL. Thank you for the opportunity to express myself. If you're reading this, Chad, you rock.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best mag ever

5-0 out of 5 stars STAR STRUCK!
Okay, I don't care if you are a guy or a girl you will all love this magazine! I don't care what the others say! This does have life stories (embarrassing moments and things like that) They even include the stars in those. Also they have fasion tips and horoscopes (the horoscopes are more for the girls though).Also they give you advice on great CDs and movie that are out there! You learn all about what the star are up to and there are tons of cool contests. I really love all the pictures and posters. I also love that they talk about stars that aren't the biggest names yet like Stevie Brock, Chris Trousdale, Jesse McCartney, and Greg Raposo(just to name a few!) This magazine has it all and I absoulutly love it! I have NEVER missed an issue!

5-0 out of 5 stars YEAH!!!! ITS THE BEST!!!!
i love pop star it has really good picks and always has posters of the hottest boy stars RANR!

5-0 out of 5 stars Popstar Magazine a plus for me!!
Okay, I've read most of the reviews and okay, they don't like it, they do like it, they don't like, they do, it's their opion, not yours!! And this is my opinion, I like it!! In the magazine, you get the latest and well kinda greatest info on your favorite popstars such as: Avril, Simple Plan, Hilary Duff, Kelly Clarkson, Good Charlotte, Jessica Simpson and sooo much more!! The March 2004 issue, I didn't really like because, there's not enough DUFF!! WE WANT DUFF, WE WANT DUFF!! And for the people that doesn't like Hilary Duff, then well excuse me for liking her gosh!! Kiss my butt!! HAHAHAHA, just kiddin' about kissin. In each issue you'll recieve 4 great posters of your fave celebs/popstars. I like that part, and oh there's a ton of contests you can enter and win the greatest stuff, like autograph pictures, and cool fan stuff. I'm not the kind of contest entering person, but they look really awesome. About the posters, well there's actually more than 4 in the issue I got, and who knows about the next!! I think Popstar Magazine is such a cool one. Oh and I think Justin and Britney are kinda nasty!! No offense to their fans!! :) When you look through the sections of this magazine you'll see the: Pinups and Posters section, Staples section (have no clue what that ment though), Gossip section, Cover section, Movies section, Music section, TV section, Fasion & Beauty section, and last but not least LOL!! (meaning:hahahahahaha, laugh out loud) I hope my review helped you with your decision of this magazine. I feel sorry if you don't check it out. I recommend get it at Barnes and Nobles or Borders!! They have a huge selections of great magazines. Oh, so if you buy a magazine there, I think it would be like 4.99 for one. Subscriptions: 19.99 (the usual) Happy reading!! ... Read more
