What's your favorite music publication?

It's time for you, dear reader, to step up to the plate and have your voice heard. We all love music, and many of us love reading about it. Just take a glance over to the right, underneath all the local band links, and you'll see a few of our favorites. But what is YOUR number one? Anything goes. It can be as mainstream as Rolling Stone or as obscure as a zine that prints three issues a year. It can be a blog or a 400-page, bi-weekly tome. The choice is yours, and we're curious. Post your favorite in the comment section below. We'll tally the votes and publish the winner in the coming weeks. Have fun with it, folks...

I have a blog which is completely full of entertainment like movies, music, ringtones etc.

Paste. But I haven't really given other magazines a fair shot.

Paste, of course.

I dream of working for them someday. I'm a magazine editor, I live in Decatur, and I shop at Decatur CD, so I figure I'm 3/4 of the way there. ;)

Prefer publications that include a sampler disk so you can actually hear the artists that are profiled in the magazines. Uncut (U.K.) has better reviews but Paste has better samplers with more artists highlighted.

I love Q! It's English and it's always wittily written.
Plus, they give out fun cds.

I don't care what anyone says...Rolling Stone is still the best by far.

I'm lucky enough to live in a city that publishes such a good free weekly music rag--Stomp & Stammer has to be my favorite music magazine.

MOJO is the one for me... best combination of new and old music, and the magazine design is great. I also love the CD's that come with the issues.

As much as I'd love to vote for Paste because it's local and excellent, I have to give my nod to Mojo for its amazingly in depth articles.

Steve Simels in Stereo Review.
Well, not any more although he reviews movies these days, here.

Lester Bangs sorta lives on in Stop and Stammer but the wingnut political views creep me out.

So, Paste, yeah. But I buy Mojo sometimes, too.

i'm going to have a give a shout out to my own southeast performer. but in my opinion that paste is a piece of poo (snicker). also gotta love the mojo.

If you just want to read about good music and upcoming artists, then I have to say Paste is my favorite. Rolling Stone is alright, but a little too political for me.

I think Stereo Subversion is great.

Props must be given to Blender. They take a lot of shit from critics, but not many pubs pack more funny, more controversial and just more info into each issue.

The Big Takeover

The magazine comes out twice a year in the spring and fall, and is run by Jack Rabid out of New York.
The main review section of the magazine is Jack's favorite 40 releases of the last six months.He likes a wide variety from bands like the Bad Brains to early Bee Gees. Other reviewers make up the rest of the 100 or so remaining reviews.
Imports out of England, Australia, and New Zealand are often covered in the Big Takeover which is something I don't see a lot of elsewhere.

Being the resident outsider, Arthur Magazine is the music related publication that most consistently delivers articles, reviews, info, etc that interest me. It's really a must read if your tastes lie beyond the mainstream of Rolling Stone/Paste/Pitchfork/NME.

Where I have to skip large chunks of Paste or Pitchfork or Rolling Stone, nearly everything in Arthur is something I want to read about.

Paste has definitely introduced me to more new artists than any other music pub. It gets my vote!
