Criminal Records

Top choice in Atlanta

This throwback record store is stacked wall to wall with a library's worth of new pop, soul, jazz and metal, on CD or vinyl. It has a fun music-related book section, and a great collection of comic books and graphic novels. Basically, a certain kind of music-lover and genre-loving geek could live here.
