Q is a popular music magazine published monthly in the United Kingdom.
The magazine has an extensive review section, featuring: new releases (music), reissues (music), music compilations, film and live concert reviews, as well as radio and television reviews. It uses a star-rating system from one to five stars; indeed, the rating an album receives in Q is often added to print and television advertising for the album in the UK and Ireland. While its content is non-free they host an archive of all of their magazine covers.
Much of the magazine is devoted to interviews with popular musical artists. It is well known for compiling lists. It has created many, ranging from “The 100 Greatest albums” to the “100 Greatest ‘100 Greatest’ Lists”. Every other month, Q – and its sister magazine, Mojo (also owned by Bauer) – have a special edition. These have been about musical eras, genres, or a very important/influential musician.
