We are Aristocrazia Webzine. As it goes with the word itself, a webzine is but a magazine that changes name when it’s carried into the world wide web, adapting to modern times and modern means. Specifically, Aristocrazia is a webzine devoted to the music we (and possibly, yourselves) love to listen to. We deal with albums, tapes, vinyl LPs, digital formats and any other possible way to convey the music we like (or dislike, as it happens). For you, we taste any musical dish we come across and we report our impressions, opinions, ideas, criticisms and comments in our reviews. Have a good reading, and a good listening!
