Some of those do look amazing (1st one and Tower especially), but I don't think this guy has ever been to Sound Machine (Reading) or Vinyl Tap (Huddersfield)

Been to Amoeba, Aquarius, Princeton Record Exchange, Reckless, Grimey's and Electric Fetus. Probably enjoyed PREX the most, but the Careful Curation award goes to Aquarius. Didn't buy anything at EF; went to Extreme Noise instead.

Would bang the girl in the Mississippi pic.

Wow, didn't expect to hear Sound Machine mentioned on here. Are you a local? Fucking fantastic record shop, unfortunately not been able to go in for a while now due to extreme skinniness, its too painful to look at records you know you can't afford.

Long in the Tooth in Philly is easily my favorite record store. Sort of expected to see it on there.

haha... lived in Osaka for 13 years and this is the first mention of Flake Records I've ever heard of... must be zero metal content there.

*but they did fail to mention King Kong and Time Bomb, go figure.

I've only been to Tower Records in Tokyo and it had some really suprising "unknown" metal records there.
Never even heard of the one in Stockholm though and I've lived here a long time. Should maybe check it out hehe.

I am! Been going there for almost 10 years now, always thought it was probably the best record shop around. I see they've changed owners again recently. Do you remember Replay? Sorely missed, the guy in there was great.

I stumbled across this store just the other day while visiting Philly...pretty awesome though chaotic....records everywhere....I also think Electric Fetus is one of the worst record stores in Minneapolis/st. Paul...most of the truly great ones went the way of the dinosaur...

Yeah, the Fetus isn't that great anymore. I love how they talked about the Broadway Reckless but only had pictures from the Milwaukee location.

Can affirm to Amoeba LA, Aquarius, Souffle Continu, and Reckless as all being great.

Aquarius is amazing because the staff takes the time to review almost all of their stock, multiple paragraph-long write-ups on the cover of every cd. And yeah, the bulk of their selection is metal and experimental.

Amoeba LA is ridiculous, totally overwhelming. Especially for film...just so much stuff.

Souffle Continu is awesome. No bullshit, just good genres...metal, experimental, free jazz, modern classical, punk, psych, ambient....

Reckless is hit or miss but it's the best you'll get in Chicago.

Pickadilly Records is the one on the list I've been to that isn't that great. It's like a stripped down Reckless records. Metal section was absolute garbage.

Notable absences: Earwax Records in Madison and Milwaukee. Metal/Punk/Noise. and the San Fran Amoeba.

And the ”original Broadway” location they urge you to visit isn't there any more anyways, it moved across the street about 5 years ago.

Yeah I love this place, was lucky enough to grow up near it. Still make a point to visit it when I go home. There were some other cool, smaller record shops in nearby towns as well, but they're now defunct. The best was easily Screams From The Gutter. Here's a couple shots from the "metal room",





Closed down in 2005/2006 but it was open long enough and at the right time to have a big impact on me.

I have only visited 12 Tónar. It is a very nice store and if you are looking something Icelandic and different then it is the place to visit.
