Are there any websites or other sources that review magazines?

The Boston Globe used to have a weekly column called "Literary Life" which did/does this. Someone from Boston may let us know if it's still running, I can't find it on their website.

Mr. Magazine (probably the best source, but he's always nice and positive)

Mediabistro (this is a blog/messageboard/listings and is better for magazine news/jobs/writing for them and what different magazines want, but has some news/reviews on launches/changes/etc)

Folio (some subscription only parts tho)

and there's AdWeek's annual Hot List, with capsule reviews

and various media critics online at various newspapers...

Simon Dumenco's Glossies column at Folio is really good, and has a real voice and opinion.

Epinions has a magazine category, although I've not used it. Their book and restaurant reviews are (were?) decent though, so it may be worth a shot.

There used to be a wonderful semi-counterculture magazine review weblog called MagLog which is, alas, defunct but has archives online.
