    I was thinking about such a topic by reading the Tops of the Decade on Pitchfork (which IMO is pure bullshit). Do you read musical press ? Musical websites ? What's your opinion on it ?

    Nope. Because trusting other people's opinions rarely gets me anywhere. People seem to bash movies and music I love, and praise the most bland boring bullshit.

    Meh, few times a year, when I see them in a store, with a band I like on the cover. It's good to read sometimes to get to know what bands are doing nowadays, but most of the time I don't care.

    I read Nocturne magazine only,but it doesnt mean anything to any of you cause its a rock/metal magazine from my country and I read it only cause of the really great and interesting interviews.

    Metal Hammer from time to time when bands I'm interested in are on the cover or when posters are nice. Never trust reviews though, I always check the albums myself.

    No, they're mostly full of pretentious jerks who think their opinions rule over anyone elses.

    Magazines like Guitar World, or other instrument-playing based Magazines are cool to read. Other that those, I read the Rolling Stone magazine sometimes.

    Opinions usually become worthless around the time the writer becomes professional.

    Sometimes I buy some guitar magasines because of the cd's or dvd's included. I particularly like the acoustic ones. They have nice interviews and albums reviews aren't very important in those.
    I rarely buy a music mag, only if i'm really interested in the artist. And even in that case i check what's inside and what else i may be interested in.
    I like the Elegy mag though. But in 3 years I only bought it twice :lol:

    Well sometimes I buy Soundi if it has got some big interview from a band I like. Sometimes, but very rarely I might buy Inferno, Rumba or Rytmi. All of these are finnish music-magazines. Sometimes I read Sue because its free.

    Same here. I usually only buy it if a band I like is featured in an article.
    Most music magazines here are way too expensive (and not good enough) to buy just for the sake of buying.
