rolling stone
(every once in a while there are really good articles, i swear! plus the subscription is dirt cheap)

i used to have a subscription to Spin but that went reallly down hill since it became mychemicalromance/falloutboy/panicathedisco/interpol magazine

blender has really witty writers but usually beyond terrible cover subjects

random stuff i buy:
harp, q, mojo, uncut,
sometimes: paste, filter, under the radar, magnet

i'm a Borders nerd!

when you've got the internet and especially metacritic you don't need music mags

It's not really worth it, the article isn't very long, if you want I'll scan it in and upload it later

I don't think I have for at least a decade and a half. I do read an occasional online article from some of them though and I peruse some music blogs.

Q is my absolute favourite. Their album reviews are mostly average writing-wise but they still give me ideas on what artists to look up and I find some good articles. Plus they've got lots of humorous stuff and I like its Britishness,

Rolling Stone mostly frustrates me nowadays because you have to sift through a lot of dull claptrap that has little to do with music to find anything interesting. Sorry, but I'm just not interested in 4-page articles on American politics.

I tried reading Mojo but something about it puts me off.

Classic Rock has some good articles but it's just soo damn blokey it makes me feel like I've barged into a bachelor's party when I'm reading it.

haven't bought any for a while, but occasionally a Rolling Stone, Q, Mofo or Uncut, although I'll admit the last issues I bought were U2-related. I'm kinda picky that way

Paste, Word, & Q. I read Rolling Stone for years, but as soon as they started putting the likes of Britney Spears & Jessica Simpson on the cover they lost a good deal of their credibility.

Okay, my Dad's using the scanner right now, so I'll do it later, or depending on how lazy I'm feeling, maybe tomorrow

Used to read Uncut, haven't in ages though. Either it declined in quality, or I just got sick of it. Too much Springsteen/Dylan/Byrds etc. for what, maybe one or two articles worth reading in the magazine? And this was before it split into two magazines.

I like buying second hand music magazines every now and again. Vox was quite good.

I used to buy Q every month, but then it got too expensive.

I used to subscribe to Spin, but their album reviews are terrible. A while back they gave album of the year to Hot Fuss by the Killers. Okay, fine. But it wasn't even the best-reviewed album of the issue it was originally in!

And yeah, I could do without seeing P!ATD on the cover.

And the sex advice column.

And I could go on and on...
