I love these guys (and girls). Since Tower Records closed a few years ago (RIP) there isn't really anyplace in town to find records, comics, toys, magazines and movies in one handy location. Criminal has it all, and a really good variety of it. I can find mainstream stuff and independant stuuf that I don't find in toy stores or Best Buy and places like that. Shane and Zano are always helpful, really cool guys!
These guys are a big part of the independant record store day that takes place all ver the country, also, so I like to support them whenever I can. I like that I can actually find obscure stuff and the staff is eager to help me with it. I'm not a fan of ordering music over the internet, and i hate getting that look from clwerks at chain stores when I ask about things they don't carry.
Overall, this is my favorite entertainment store in Atlanta, and it gives me agood excuse to kill a day in Litte 5 (hello, Vortex!). I even got to meet Jamie Hewlett there once and got him to sign my Gorillaz toys - BONUS!!!
You aren't going to find the cheapest music in town here, but they have listening stations for you to find your new favorite bands, as well as a pretty good size used section, comics, magazines, and occassionally will host parties/events for new music that are pretty good. And the snobbery of the staff is pretty minimal, sometimes. Overall one of my favorite places to buy music when I want to keep the cd.
