TB Record Buyers Guide

As a certified record dork, I can attest to how dangerous the modern record buying marketplace can be. Micro-labels abound these days, and even some of the bigger labels are putting out inferior product. There is always more crap out there than there are good records that are actually worth your money. Prices are going up. I know how bad it feels to drop $5 on a single or $10 on a CD/LP only to have it suck. Or get skunked on an edition of 300 European single. Hopefully, our voluminous record reviews section helps you in your record purchasing endeavors. To further aid quality buying, we will be including a Top 5 from most contributors to narrow down the field a little. So trust us. Really, we wouldn't steer you wrong.
