This double page spread is taking from NME a rock magazine.
The rock music genre can represent rebellion and freedom to express emotions that the artist may have.
Standard black font, sans serif font- seems to be formal.
The body text is laid out across one page, whist other smaller images are placed over another page.
Written as a impressed fan
The various artist are shown to be quite reckless and free, in the images shown on the Double Page Spread.
This issues of the magazine was a special edition and so on the front cover it had the many artists who have previously been on the front cover and the writing was in a shiny silver colour, also with black and white font, and so the front cover in a way does match the article because it uses similar colours, which will attract the reader.
As a person who likes RnB and Hip Hop, and not interested in Rock Music, I think that prior knowledge is needed to fully understand what the article is saying, because when reading it, I didn’t fully understand what was being said.
