Stylus Magazine was an online music and film magazine launched in 2002. It featured long-form music journalism, four daily music reviews, movie reviews, podcasts, an MP3 blog, and a text blog.

Additionally, Stylus had daily features like "The Singles Jukebox", which looked at pop singles from around the globe, and "Soulseeking", a column focused on personal responses in listening.

While the site's readership numbers never reached the levels of Pitchfork's, it did receive many notices in the press for the quality of its writing. In 2006 it was chosen by the Observer Music Monthly as one of the Internet's 25 most essential music websites.[2]

Stylus closed as a business on 31 October 2007.[3][4] As of February 2013, the site remains online, but is not publishing any new content.

On 4 January 2010, with the blessing of former editor Todd Burns, Stylus senior writer Nick Southall launched The Stylus Decade, a website with a new series of lists and essays reviewing music from the previous ten years.[5]The Singles Jukebox relaunched with many of the same writers as a stand-alone website in March 2009.[6]
