This magazine is the one mag you need if you are into alternative music. i like how they review albums of up and coming artists. They give you a full list of all cds coming out and inform you on awesome tours that are going to be going down in a town near you. There are always fun articles to read that have either been writen by a genious or even by band members of your favorite bands. lots of polls and chances for you to even get into the mag as in picutres you took with bands and stuff still sweet tho. i like this magazine its pretty rad.
