I bought it last issue 'cause I was bored. Unless it's a really, really good coverdisc, I'm not doing that again! It was bloody awful as usual.

Just checked, and it's about Britpop. Britpop! That's even worse than their usual stuff. What is it with Mojo and reverence of the distant past, no matter how crap it was?

The CD is PUNK.

Old and new.

I have last issue. It's a bit crap.

Then it's certaintly great! ;)

Seriously, kind of, I saw the CD and it seemed very good.

The CD is okay but unspectacular, I like the feature on Elephant, but generally it's worse than most issues- some of the articles were painfully ill-written, and most of it was perspectiveless and bland.

That, of course, on top of the fact that MOJO is an inherently evil, cultish, record-wanking posers' mag with no perspective on the present and an unhealthy amount of reverence for the past. It does professionally what I have occasionally been accused of doing: picks tracks purely for their obscurity value and the number of show-off points they give you in front of their friends, showing how eclectic (barf) and cultured you are, and presents them as absolute gospel.

They do have some brilliant people getting the rights to tracks to put on the cover CDs (the December one was better than the vast majority of commercial compilations I have), they often are able to bring in interesting articles about artists you may not have heard about and have a nice, quirky news section. But if there was no cover CD, I'd never buy the wretched rag.

Well to that point exactly, I made sure to ask a friend of mine about the CD's songs and particularly wether they were some obscure ones or the "hits".
Because I also have some of your reservations and I only had the chance to take just a quick look at the CD (just saw the names of some bands).

I tend to agree with that fascination about the past although that's not necessairily and always bad.
