Best place for music in Atlanta, 3/04/2010

Best place to find those hard to find cds. They have a great selection. The only downside is how they are arranged, you have to wait for an employee to pull the cd out for you.


Later hours and energetic vibe are a plus, 8/28/2008

There are many times when I've wanted to get a certain record, but it's after 7pm so most of the indie record shops are closed... but not Criminal. Open 'til 9 M-Th, and 'til 10 Fri & Sat, I give... them many points for staying open longer. I love their manic selection of so many things in one small space, too... tons of CDs and a now-large selection of vinyl, plus they're the only indie record store in town with a big magazine rack. Sometimes I'll go in for nothing more than that. I like all the listening stations too.

more records than comics but worth the trip

if you do not live in little five points and shop in Eric;s store you are really missing out. what they don't have comics wise, they can get. ask Lillian for it. this place has at least 90 per cent less nerds than any other comic shop in town. I swear and I should know. be sure to get on their mailing list so you won;t miss out on signings and free concerts in store.

'Zines galore!

If you like some odd ball magazines, Criminal is sure to have it. I haven't bought much music here... but if you want to know what is happening in popular culture, you are sure to find some periodical that covers it here.

Best selection around

With a lot of the other record stores closing, Criminal is still standing. They always have what you are looking for, or can get it for you easily. The staff knows their stuff, and won't scoff unless you are looking for Britney's new CD. The only thing is, you kinda need to know what you are looking for. Most of the music is kept behind the counter, so browsing is limited mostly to the used selections. Another annoying thing is that for their vinyl, there is no listening station available. Other than those two pet peevs from a grizzled DJ and crate digger, they are a great shop.

Cool Little Five Points Shop

Great music selection with a laid-back, knowledgeable staff. Cool, unusual gifts and toys. Recommended if you're looking for something out of the ordinary, or if someone on your gift list is hard to shop for.
