spin magazine

By Lawrence Bailey

In another effort to distinguish itself as the not-so-mainstream alternative to the oh-so-mainstream Rolling Stone, Spin Magazine has unleashed a compilation on the world.

Sticking to music meticulously chosen because it’s not quite top-40 while still being marketable, the
Spin This! compilation is a solid collection of highly enjoyable tracks.
A nice cross section that includes Gang Starr, Gorillaz, Paul Oakenfold and even some Canadian content with Vancouver-based hip-hop artists Swollen Members, it comes off feeling like the guy with the messy bed head you know took an hour to style.

Good music, don’t get me wrong, but please do us both a favour-go online, find the playlist, download all the tracks and burn your own CD.

You’ll feel much better about it, trust me.
