Renewing My Faith In Music Magazines
Inside, I found coverage across the rock spectrum (including the death metal scene), some very messy but highly-entertaining interviews (seemingly the foundation of the magazine), and the most comprehensive round-up of reviews that I've seen in print. And very surprising for a magazine that's based around punk music, there's none of this usual exclusiveness (as I said, Green Day made the cover). Yea, it's printed on newsprint, there's no David Fricke, and quite frankly the writing and editing aren't much beyond the 'zines that TJ Doyle published during my senior year in high school, but it's worlds beyond any other consumer music mag that's available right now.
