I prefer Q to anything else; I really like its tongue-in-cheek humour and the wide coverage they give to all sorts of artists.

Rolling Stone is mostly rubbish these days, but I still find something worth reading in nearly every issue.

NME makes Rolling Stone look like a Holy Temple of Credibility.

I tried out Classic Rock once or twice because they had cover stories on the old bands I love, but this magazine is so obviously aimed at the male audience that I felt as if I was gatecrashing a bucks' night or something while reading it.

Oh, and Nick Cave's latest received quite a lot of average reviews, so I don't think Q have anything against him.

I've taken to buying Hot Press (Rock Cupboard ) on a fairly regular basis, its one of the few worth reading really

NME is just crap

I visit the Rolling Stone website once in a while to see if they have any decent articles. They do sometimes, but I usually end up wanting to punch a hole through the wall when I see what no-talent flavor-of-the-week they put on the cover of their current issue. Their reviews are ridiculous, too. It seems like they give three stars to anything these days.

I used to read Q and Spin all the time, also an occasional guitar based magazine but now I pretty much can read what I want online so I rarely buy a magazine unless U2 is on the cover.

Blender. Maxim bought this magazine a few years back and has turned it into quite a nice publication. It has a bit of humor and other things you'd find in Maxim, but it sticks to the music....

I have a subscription to Rolling Stone, although I realize that there's a lot of crap in it. I should start reading Q...
