The word on The Word

If you’re looking for an intelligent monthly pop culture fix, The Word is the place to find it. It's a music magazine that is way ahead of the game.


Way back in 2003, The Word magazine made me think I really should check out this new iPod music gadget they were raving about. The Word also alerted me to The Wire months before it was regularly acclaimed everywhere else as “the best show on television”. The Word recommended I listen to The National’s Boxer album — which quickly became an all-time favourite. The Word has changed my life in these and oh so many other positive ways. It’s the only magazine I subscribe to. Not bad for a mag that, upon first impression, doesn’t look much different from its UK music mag brethren.
