    The best record store I've been to. They have personalized labels that they’ll stick on CDs or LPs that are written up to tell you why it's good without being preachy. Good stuff.

    This Chicago record shop has stuck around all these years, giving us a just-grungy-enough vibe, staff music reviews thorough enough to rival Pitchfork, and a solid place to sell our old CDs.

    Be ready to spend some time digging here. There's a lot, and it's only vaguely organized... you'll find something you want, for sure - well, If you can find it!

    I don't own a record player of any sort, but coming here makes me with I had one. They have a lot of music in vinyl in every flavor you can imagine.

    Love this shop. Don't give up on searching when looking through bins. If you keep searching you'll find hidden treasures and such

    My favorite part about Reckless is their personalized labels that they’ll stick on CDs or LPs that are especially good. They’re pretty funny, like a good friend telling you, “you gotta get this.” Read more

    Dig through the new vinyl for unexpected treasures (I found not one, but two Bone Awl LPs). For CDs, the sleeve-only interface is a little haphazard, so better if you know what you're looking for.

    Reckless Records is a diggers’ paradise, where music geeks can flip through thick stacks of booklets to find used and out-of-print discs. -ASK Read more

    Head for the "Soul" section, find D'Angelo's "Voodoo" album, and read the sticker novel on the cover. After reading, try to resist the urge to buy it.

    Pete Wentz loves this place. "If you're not going to dig for it, you're probably not going to find it here. It's something that's missing in art right now."

    Pretty much just a used records store. Not much distinguishes it from similar places.

    Don't use the photobooth unless you plan on being in the store for at least a half hour.
