Lollipop Magazine is being rebuild at LollipopMagazine.com. Lollipop.com is no longer updated, but the archive content will remain until 2018 (more or less).

These are not reviews, just a first impression after a quick pass through the CD, usually when determining who might review 'em.
Unless otherwise noted, all previews are by me, Scott Hefflon, your not-especially-humble Editor. I've run Lollipop for over two decades. I can write pretty good. (Sometimes I even write pretty well.) I try to be fair and supportive of up-and-comers blazing their own path through all the bandwagon-hoppers, but sometimes (uh, often) I'm mean because I think the band shoulda tried harder. If I'm mean, I usually try to at least be funny about it.
So poke around, check out previews of bands you've heard of, and bands you haven't, cuz every so often, there's a real gem in the pile. Hopefully I can save you wasting your money on over-hyped shit and steer you toward some amazing new bands.
