OK-Sorry if this is a rant...but...I am a car buff and the reviews I read in most of the top car mags are pretty clear and critical when it comes to reviewing and ranking. Why can't we have the same quality review process with Bass mags, including Bass Player? Are they still so tied into kissing advertiser butt? Sorry but equipment reviews seem so "nice and neutral". I would think that after all this time we could have a decent bass mag with good "hard" reviews. If there are folks out there that have a favorite Bass mag for equipment reviews-please advise. I have totally lost interest in most, except for "Bassics" because of thier CD/Interviews.
