NME is worth reading again!

But just barely...

Kerrang has a lot more than just metal in it.

Most of the bands are metal though and I feel I'll know or care for very few of them. But still I'll check it out one more time. I remember it being quite... funny :D

That's was (one of the) problem with NME too. It wrote about things that nobody knew or cared. (At least I). And with a style that was bliah!!

Now there's at least something of remote interest in it...like the white stripes and who fucked barrymore in Vegas. I'm willing to overlook Oasis in the front page.

Kerrang is definitely funny. :D

Yup it is :D
It still can't beat the moronity of the letters section of Metal Hammer (the equivalant magazine here). Humour is best when it is unintentional:D

Mojo: Record-wankery and way too much respect for the past. Still read it, but shouldn't.

NME: Fads, Fads, Fads. Still stuck in Britpop, needs out of there fast. Too little black music.

Kerrang: Laddsy sense of humour, of the kind I used to enjoy age 14. Had Nickelback followed by Muse on the cover of two issues, I think that says it all really.

I'd like a broad, up-to-date music magazine with good taste (NME used to have decent taste a decade ago), a focus on music from outside of britain, intelligent features, commentary and editorial pieces, plus in-depth reviews by humble, self-concious reviewers who love all kinds of music.

We get Metal Hammer here too, it's hillarious. The quality of writing makes Kerrang look like Shakespeare.

But what is out there which is better than Mojo.. :(

If you made that description about Mojo, you're lucky you never read Pop & Rock, the 20 year plus rock music magazine here... It was like an encyclopedia... yuck! (hmmm although you might have liked it, it was VERY thorough).

Gave Nickelback a few 1K reviews and asked the twat with the beard and ears what he said to all the people who said their music was boring in one of the most harsh interviews I've ever read in a modern mainstream music magazine. Brilliant.

They have a tendency to sometimes write nice articles about people then slate them in the reviews section as they did with InMe last week.

And it's not just NME, Kerrang has too little Black Metal in it as well.

Nah. I'm to conceited to write reviews for my dream magazine. I'll edit it. :coolgrin:

Actually, I faintly like Black Metal. ;)

I like Uncut purely for the fact that it doesn't ignore Americana/Alt country stuff. Although they Love Ryan a little too much.

I suppose I should really just subscribe to No Depression though.

Nothing compares to the Nouse music section...

Uncut is very good- it's stuffed with writers from early 90's "Melody Maker" (when MM was seriously good).
