I didn't underestand the meaning of "top sounds".can you explain for me.
thanks a lot

Hello farisan

It's the name of a magazine. As far as I know, it is a fictional magazine (in other words, not one that really exists), but in this context, I imagine that 'top' means 'most important' or 'most popular' and that 'sounds' means 'music'. So it's probably a magazine about the most popular music groups.

All the best
