Is there something wrong with this journal type?

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?

Sans Serif for Magazine


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 http://Gotham Black and Font Bureau's Anisette Bold (think very wide and bold). The serif we've chosen is http://Glosa Display for big heads, and http://Glosa Text for body copy. We're also using http://Stag, a contemporary slab, for headlines, decks, etc.
