I've hit the 10-year mark of subscribing, so I'm sharing my experience: THE GOOD: A large review section makes for an excellent list, which is my primary reason for this magazine. The interviews of featured bands in each issue makes for an additional plus as well. THE BAD: (1) Sometimes you don't get your current issue. Their customer service is excellent for re-sending out another copy, but involves an email. No direct contact/phone number. Keep your current issue, which has an "expiration date" at the bottom of the cover. That way you know when the next issue should arrive. (2) The other big negative is the reviewers themselves. I know reviews are opinions, but these guys miss the mark far more than hit it. Expect many great albums with a rating of 6 or 7, and crappy ones with a 9 or 10. Album reviews are far more accurate online than you'll find in this magazine. THE VERDICT: An excellent magazine for a "list" of new music coming out, but read the reviews with skepticism.
