A boundless selection of artifacts for the pop-culture anthropologist. – In Short
Virgin's selection of pop CDs is comprehensive--and the store's reputation as a haven for imports is well deserved. The electronic music section is extensive, littered with hard-to-find titles from smaller West Coast and international labels. Pop culture definitely rules the book selection; and the DVD and multimedia sections are strong as well. The chain' biggest selling point may be the multitude of listening stations that allow shoppers to check out loads of new CDs before purchasing.
Quantity over quality – If you're interested in buying the latest by Kelly Clarkson, this is a good place to shop. If, like me, you expect a music store this huge to carry the entire catalogs of more obscure artists, look elsewhere.
Sold my soul to Virgin – I shop indie stores as often as I can, but it's impossible to walk by this place without getting sucked in. So...much...music!!!
