....By the time NME returned to a giveaway print edition in September 2015, the magazine had changed from the IndieRock/Pop bible to a Smash Hits style comic with more editorial dedicated to Film, TV & Games rather than music. The Tracks Of The Week feature descended into a 'Best for hip shaking' 'Best for slamming doors too' reviewing the likes of Justin Bieber & The Vamps. Hence, no longer worth a mention on these pages for long NME.
