Uncut
Used to be my must have magazine; with music, film, and book reviews plus a free CD every month. Then they dropped the film coverage and the focus on music for middle aged men came into sharp relief. Just how many Beatles/Bo Dylan/Rolling Stones articles do I need in my life?

Word Magazine
Upon my arrival in the UK I started getting this magazine in the hope it be a good general read regarding film, books, music etc. Unfortunatly it seems to be following Uncut with a growing focus on middle aged men rock, so only an occassional purchase these days.
