Thread: Prog Magazine

  1. #1

    Prog Magazine

    Prog Magazine has sent me a deal, 22 dollars a quarter (how many issues that is I don't know), or 99 dollars for 1 year, again how many issues I don't know. I'm not the best at math, but, the deal seems like not so good a deal, however I would have to know how many issues are involved. Can anyone enlighten me on this? Thanks.

    Quarterly Continuous Credit Card
    $22.00

    Credit/Debit Card or PayPal 1 Year
    $99.00

    According to my math, itd be cheaper to pay quarterly.

    YMMV

    I quit buying it when they started selling for $15 a copy at B&N. ($180 a year, if it's a monthly thing.)

    I bought the first 4-6 issues, then stopped.

    Worth every penny. In my opinion.

    I subscribed for years, but finally let it lapse once the issues started taking two months to arrive. I got a little tired of reading about "upcoming" gigs or releases that were already in the past. I initially thought I'd just go to the local bookstore and buy them individually, but I haven't actually done that.

    I agree that does get a bit frustrating. I subscribe to both Prog and Classic Rock, both of which have this problem sometimes.

    Regardless of the problems, we should all be thankful these magazines exist in hard copy formats.

    I don't subscribe to Progression to find out what bands are playing when, that's what the internet is for.

    I feel bad, but I rarely buy the magazine anymore. It just seems so redundant, along with being 2 months late and pricey in the US. I read far more interesting & timely interviews AND reviews for free in the internet. It's good it's still going though.

    I've been buying them at retail since the debut issue. First at Borders Books and now at the record store where I work. And I save them when I'm done reading. I use it as an alternative source for proggy news especially the album/book/video reviews.

    I bought the last issue in a foolish moment. Its full of waffle.

    I had a subscription for a few years then realized they have articles about the same bands over and over..
    Hope it's better now!
    Enjoy the moment... It's the only way to fly!

    I stopped buying the print copy years ago: so expensive in the U.S. But I’ve been subscribing to the ipad version since. Still love it! Still expensive, but a lot better than print.
    So much music....so little time....

    I am not sure that is what I said, but yea the magazines tend to be old news by the time you get them, but I do enjoy the articles and interviews.

    Rock Society is the best one IMO. It's UK based as well but arrives WAY faster than Prog. And bi-monthly issues prevent overkill factor. Prog-leaning but with a dash of classic rock as well, and the articles don't necessarily fawn over every single band. Worth looking into!

    Digital version for me. I can read it on my iPad or my Samsung Galaxy phone via the Zinio app. The CDs never really appealed to me. And I can get the issue as soon as it came out instead of waiting weeks to get it at Barnes and Noble.

    ^ You don't get a download of the material on the CD with a digital subscription?

    The year I subscribed (about five years ago), they also threw in some interesting stuff that was neither prog nor classic rock, but worth investigating. I definitely preferred it to PROG.

    As I recall as an old subscriber Rock Society was an expensive subscription but good read, is it still expensive?
