magazine layout

Is it just me or is there something wrong with the type used in this journal? I'd like to send them a note, but don't know how to put it in words. The lines look irregular, both vertically and horizontally to me, but maybe it is just that the column is too narrow to do full justification at that size?

Hi All,

I'm working in tandem with two in-house designers on a news magazine redesign. The new nameplate/logotype is a heavily customized amalgamation of Gotham Black and Font Bureau's Anisette Bold (think very wide and bold). The serif we've chosen is Glosa Display for big heads, and Glosa Text for body copy. We're also using Stag, a contemporary slab, for headlines, decks, etc.
