Editorial reviews from the web (3)

Heaven for audiophiles, this legendary Berkeley favorite is the place to head for new and used CDs, records, cassettes, and DVDs. The dazzling stock includes thousands of titles for all music tastes. The store even has its own record label. There are branches in San Francisco and Hollywood, but this is the original.

Don't be scared off by the tattooed, pierced, and fierce-looking employees (and other shoppers!) in this beloved new and used record store highlighting indie labels. They're actually more than happy to recommend some great music to you.

Used music shops are not as common as they used to be, especially where I live, so visiting Amoeba for the first time in almost 8 years was like a breath of fresh air and a nice walk down memory lane. The place hasn't changed much from what I remember - everything is nicely organized and alphabetized. …

This place is honestly alright. I'm giving it one star though, because every time I go in I have to put up with unwarranted snarky comments from this unshaven, middle aged white guy sporting a male pattern baldness fauxhawk thing and hipster glasses that works behind the counter. I would seriously give anything to watch his life crumble.
