I have heard from others that Tower Records is a good place to buy music, but they could not have possibly been to this particular store. The place is dingy and harshly lit. The selection is meager and the prices are not cheap. The listening booths are just okay and they never have anything that I want to listen to anyway.
Though, I do like the outmoded 3 for $10 cassette tapes. If you are looking for cheap Devo and Bob Dylan cassette tapes, this is it.

PROS: Cheap cassette tapes
CONS: Dirty and kind of creepy

This is a very good CD store, even if it is a retail chain. On the first floor, there is a lot of music, and a decent selection of DVDs also. On the second floor, there is a very impressive selection of classical music, a usually neglected genre. They even have some more obscure labels. THey also have reasonable prices for many CDs.

I am disappointed in this store. It is not attractive at all.
In order to visit the 2nd floor, you have to use the staircase.
There is elevator access only if an employee comes over and turns on the switch. I guess they may be concerned about people using the elevator for a bathroom? The prices are higher than can be found on the internet. But if you don't want to wait for a product by mail, this is a good alternative.

PROS: convenient location
CONS: unattractive, 2nd floor not easily accessible.

Tower Records has 2 floors of CDs, which is a great number of CDs and certainly a large enough collection to satisfy most music fans. The classical section upstairs is especially wonderful, with great labels, and also cheaper labels so you can buy and own the classics for just a few bucks. THey also have good prices on DVDs downstairs, great for impulse buys.
