I'm not really a mag reader but you have to love FrOnt. Only problem being is the woman serving usually mistakes it for a "jazz" mag and puts it in a brown packet for you. O well. FrOnt is full of everything a lads mag should be. Gadgets, gangsters and thruppney-bits. FrOnt is hillarious. Every page has you creased up laughing at mostly sick humour. If your looking for sexy women the FrOnt is deffinatly the one. It's jam packed with more models than you can wave a hairy stick at. A regular collumn by my good pal "Dodgy" Dave Courtney is also a great laugh which I look forward to every month. All in all a great read without all the crappy adverts. Keep at it boys!
Front magazine is a relatively new publication in the men?s lifestyle market in the U.K., and is growing rapidly. Comparable in growth and content terms to Loaded magazine, Front offers all of the standard content of a men?s magazine, but takes a slightly different view of things. Where FHM offer journalistic maturity, and Loaded offer pure comedy, Front sits neatly between the two. Considering that Front offers much the same kind of content as FHM and Loaded, it is difficult to make a recommendation as to purchase, other than to say it?s worth a look. Whilst Front offers all of the usual interviews that one would expect from a publication of this genre, it has provided an added string to its' bow by featuring celebrity columnists on a regular basis. Dave Courtney, Bez, and Howard Marks contribute to Front each month, and this adds value to the magazine. In my experience, Front magazine is the perfect accompliment to a short train journey - neither to intellectually challenging, but sufficiently distracting to make time fly past. However, for almost anything else, I'd have to recommend looking elsewhere.
Front one of the Ultimate in Lads Mags FRONT most certainly caters for a guys who read the Sun newspaper. It is the Daily Star of the magazine world. It is full of articals which will not want your girl friend to read because they are very me for a highly but after all it is for the Lads. Front is full with photos of half naked and naked hot chicks, all the latest designer fashions, boys toys and gadgets, clubbing and articals on getting drunk and how to get drunk with your friend. If you like girls, sex, alcohol cars and gadgets then you will love this. If you dont then try HELLO magazine its lot tamer.
The Ultimate in ‘Lads Mags’ - FRONT most certainly caters for a generation brought up on a literary diet of ‘The Sun’. It is a glossy magazine in more ways than one., Firstly, Ladies, please excuse me for a highly sexist review of this Magazine – after all it is for the Lads. FRONT is brimful with photos of scantily clad (or not ‘clad’ at all!) ‘top totty’, all the latest designer fashions, ‘boys toys’, clubbing and features associated with boozing with your pals. In many ways it is today’s accepted and acceptable face of soft core porn. Not that I have anything against that at all. But…… Take this month’s edition for example. The regular ‘classy’ front cover photo of a bimbo in a bikini, kicks it into gear. Very nice too – whoever she is. Probably either an obscure MTV presenter or a little known TV Soap star, I’d guess - but let’s unseal the shrink wrapping and enter very carefully. Ah Ha ! Sky TV’s tasty footie presenter Helen ‘Hels Bels’ Chamberlain sitting by a window clad in just a blue top and her white knickers. Mmmm just up my street. And are my eyes deceiving me or……yes they are her nipples protruding from the flimsy fabric of her top. But if you are looking for more Serious stuff than this – try Page 32 - An article entitled ‘Boozing’ – “Get stoned on Beer – then eat a toothbrush”…..!! Or maybe move onto Page 44 “Ivana Horvat – Channel 5 star in her pants”. Hang on, I think she might be the tasty bit of stuff that was on the cover….39, 40, 41, 42, 43…here we are Page 44 – YES! It’s her and wearing a very nice shade of tan and a bikini with tassles. Eight pages in total of ‘interview’ – toughies like “What’s your favourite sexual posi
tion?”. Need I say more? Another popular regular feature is a spotlight on one of Spearmint Rhino’s dancers. This month it’s Tina. She’s from ….well it doesn’t get around to her nationality, but does tell you she has had her boobs enlarged – “I went from A to DD”, she tells us “What do you think?” Very nice Tina – and are those ‘organ stops’?…No, didn’t think so really. Well she’s a Table Dancer so what do you expect? For those of you reading this in black and white, I can tell you that she is very blonde with pigtails, very pretty and has very much Front! And anyone who reads ‘Front’ by means of Braille – I should think the picture pages are very confusing for you! Onward ever onward… ‘Front’ does pay homage to the world of Sport, of course. Any self respecting ‘lad’ will be a soccer fan – probably one of the ‘big clubs’. So why not an article on the recent ‘mystery player’ who managed to find his way into a Man U team photo before their European Champions League game in Munich. Most International matchjes and European ties see the teams quickly line up for a picky before the start – just after the National anthems. On this occasion – around a month ago – United found themselves with 12 men in the photo. ‘Front’ reveal the identity of the prankster who ‘got in on the act’ and how he did it. I must say that it is a very interesting read, but I hope that it does not start a whole genre of imposter-style gatecrashing of events. Just like ‘streaking’ tended to get a bit passé – especially if it was a guy with not much dangling – this imposterisation (that’s MY Word, thank you) could get a little silly. Imagine the next England game when they are ‘kicking in’ before the match –
11 proper England players and 50 overweight blokes in England kit bought from JJB Sports the days before running around with them. Funny – the first time, but….. Anyway, I digress and I’m sure there are some of you wanting to know what Ms Chamberlain looks like ‘sans kit’. Well one highly revealing photo shows her in a kind of mesh vest and there are definately a couple of threepenny bits on show there! Oh yes and the cursory ‘interview’ that I’m sure most ‘readers’ won’t bother reading. In fact the ‘nipple count’ rises quite dramatically on pages 90, 91 and 92. Another ‘interview’ with Czech model, Lucie. More like a 6 page photo spread with plenty of pouting and quite a lot of fleshy bits too. For those of you keeping score – 4 !! And then ‘Something for the Ladies’ – Boxer Leigh Remedios, not actually a boxer persay, but an ‘ultimate fighter’. This is a Serious piece of journalism. An article on an ‘unknown’ master of a little known sport, but ideal fodder to fill the pages of Front. Right I’ve had enough of this now. I’m far too old to be reading this magazine. It’s my son’s copy actually (honest!) – gets it on subscription (or is it prescription?). To sum up, I can see the popularity of the magazine. It does cover popular topics. As well as filling it’s pages with plenty of attractive female flesh, it does have club reviews, a section on the latest computer games, fashion items (sunglasses and other designer clothes in this month’s) etc. It caters for exactly the market that it is aiming at. It gives the lads a laugh, a titter (pun completely intended), visual stimulation, role models, and just occasionally – information. Certainly not a ‘heavy’ read – but definitely entertainment. Not for Lads only – but their Dads too, someti
Front is the best magazine around, according to yours truly. Classifying it as a men's mag would be cruel to FHM, as it is really a lads mag. Grown men though may still get a kick out of the 'Mate in a State' section, though I'm sure they would prefer the health products section in FHM. This is no disrespect to grown men, I'm sure they can get jiggy with it anytime, but this magazine is deeply suited for lads. Front has done well to establish itself in the last 2-3 years since its launch, and is now one of the big players in the fiercly competitive mens magazine market. Along side the popular magazines such as 'FHM', 'Sky' and 'Loaded', it still maintains originality with its style of writing articles and its dry and incredibly funny sense of humour. The feeling is though that it has copied these magazines and their features which I find a bit harsh because you can't be completly original, can you? Front is pleasing on the eye, and though only having been established for a couple of years, it has changed the layout of the mag once and is thinking about doing it again. This is a lot better than FHM's approach, who change the format once every five years and it really does get boring to read. They seem to have lost their sense of humour with being the biggest player in the market. Front is fresh though. Regular stories from around the globe, stroies about people in dodgy situations, articles on war, film, CD and book reviews as well and then obviously the jokes section. People look beyond this huge selection of reading material, and look directly at one thing - the woman. Yes, I will admit that there is plenty of scantily clad woman in the mag, some not even 'clad' at all! But this is a small section of a fantastic magazine, and people should look beyond the woman and realise that Front is one of the best mags around.
I have read this magazine since the very first issue and I think it has changed a lot. OK it used to cost £2 but now it costs £2.70, but this is still 30p less than the other top mens mags (FHM, Loaded etc). This magazine is far less serious than some of the others, it carries stories and articles that while being maybe too close to the knuckle for some are funny and informative. The magazine this month carries on the front cover "100 Reasons Why Britain is Blo**y Brilliant!" now if this does not catch the eye of any self respecting patriot, what will? The top 3 reasons on the list ie. english food, clean tap water and our warmongering. All very good reasons that deserve to be at the top. Ok the magazine does have a lot of nudity in it, is this so wrong as it is actually a mens magazine! My only real complaint about the magazine is that it regularly has violence of some sort reported on its pages, but it very cleverly avoids actually condoning these violent escapades. A good magazine to read each month and often contains a few jokes that go down a treat in the pub!
The Men?s Lifestyle is one of the most lucrative sectors in the magazine industry. It is also now one of the most competitive as well with new titles appearing all the time. The Main players are probably ?FHM?, ?Loaded?, ?Maxim? and ?Sky? and are well established. Front is a relative newcomer, having been on the market for just over two years. If you have ever read it you will have probably noticed that it is a similar vein to ?Loaded?, i.e. more of a ?lads? mag than a ?men?s?. This is mainly due to the fact that it was founded by Piers Hernu who used to employed as part of the ?Loaded? staff. For your money, you don?t get much as it is approximately half the size of ?FHM?, but costs only 30 pence less! Admittedly is conrtains a lot less adverts, which is always a good thing, but it also has a lot less in features. It has no health, gadgets or problem pages for a start. As with Loaded, the articles are usually interviews with celebrities (usually page 3 girls or hard men) or something mad like Street Basketball or re-enacting the battle of Agincourt. As with ?Loaded? with the style of writing is a childish with the interview questions being more of an inane variety. The articles are also pretty shallow and when a serious topic is attempted, it is usually in comedic style. The magazine is the type that you pick up, have a quick flick through before replacing on the shelf. It is trying too hard to be ?Loaded? and has no identity of its own. When ?Loaded? first appeared on the scene it was really good as it was a novel concept, but has since been told to tone down its articles, the same has happened with ?Front?. This magazine needs a new direction to get it out of the shadow of ?Loaded? otherwise it will disappear.

There is a high nipple count, a shameless worshipping of top London gangsters like Dave Courtney, and lots of adverts. That's it, kids. From the start Front looked like it was being aimed at lads younger than the average Loaded reader, and deliberately set out to cater to a completely zonked audience. Front probably gets the majority of its revenue from pocket money, hence the determined tone of schoolboy japes: we want to be hard, we want to get pissed, we want to be a hit with the ladies.. blah blah blah. This is a cheesy comic which will only serve to underline how little these boys' lives matches their unreal expectations: and as long as they'll shell out for it, Front will keep dishing it out.
Front was when launched more Loaded than Loaded and racier than anything below the topshelf. Of course, this rapidly got the mag into trouble. An additional plus was its cover price, it was and still is cheaper than most Mens mags. But since having to tone down, it has become YAMM (Yet Another Mens Mag). At the end of the day they all run similar articles to each other, which are repeated about once every 18 months or so. Front has had some good articles in it, but had drifted into the centre ground from being extreme. It is worth taking on holiday to read on the beach, but generally there is not a lot new to report. YAMM
What a poor men magazine, althrough I have never bought this magazine myself, my friend bought it the other week, saying it was better than FHm and loaded put together. When I actually read it I thought what a load of rubbish. This magazine has no content, it is basically topless women from front to back. Now not that I disapprove of such magazines... but if you want a magazine like that then why don't you go and buy a proper one. This magazine isn't aimed at adults, in mu opinion it is aimed at young teenage boys who want to see some topless women but won't buy a 'proper' porn mag. A mens magazine that this is meant to be should not just have topless women, it should also have content, such as articals, and jokes which you can actually read.
I gave up reading FHM and Loaded ages ago due to their apparent infactuation with filling up the magazines with adverts on more pages than articles, therefore making them look bulkier and good value for money. Whilst I am in favour of FHM's absolutely gorgeous array of celebrities and unknown women, it falls short on interesting articles. Front is a magazine which not only supplies eye candy, but also interesting articles about a wide variety of topics. It deals with all sorts of real life experiences, and also fun stuff aswell in a well written way. It beats Loaded on substance, mind you Howard Marks's column in Loaded is legendary. Front is the better complete package, and even though it is rising in price the quality is still there.
As with many things Front started out with a flourish and was a good Magazine. It was cheap (£2) and slightly smaller than most mens mags. now it has gone right off and I am back on the tried and trusted Loaded. Front is edited by an ex Loaded employee (hence the resemblance) but it falls short in many ways. The articles in front are a disapointing as they have no real depth, but I suppose most men only buy it for the women without any clothes on. The quality of this is well below Loaded and FHM anyway so you would be much better off spending you £2.90 on one of them. If you want a magazine which is quick and easy to read with lots of pictures and no substance then Front may be the one for you. If you want you magazine to last longer than the average England football team in a major competition, them forget Front.
i bought this at charle de gaulle airport last year as i needed something to read on the plane home. i wish i hadnt bothered. it makes loaded look like the godfather and takes less time to read than the daily star. written by idiots for idiots ( a quick glance at the letters page will tell you all you need to know) front is trying desperately hard to be loaded, heaven knows why. it falls well short of the mark though. amateur stuff
Front is a newish magazine that fills that niche between FHM and Loaded. Its perhaps aimed at a slightly younger audience than FHM, but judging by its popularity round the office, I would say its ageless! I've tried reading Loaded, but for some reason, the stories/features just seem a bit too bland. Obviously, being Mens Magazines, there will be pictures of women in various stages of undress, but I found that Loaded a bit too crude. FHM on the other hand does have interesting prose, and I am an undying fan of it, but I reckon Front appeals to the younger side of me - it doesn't take itself too seriously, and generally can be quite amusing, with articles that often keep you reading right to the end!
