  • Rolling Stone ranks The Sound Garden in Baltimore as #2 in their list of The Best Record Stores in the USA!
  • Roam around and take a look the pictures of some of the famous faces that have visited The Sound Garden. Try to find Elijah Wood.
  • Huge music selection if you need anything come here!
  • If you're confused about where an artist is, look for them under a group they were in (i.e. Jerry Cantrell albums are actually with Alice in Chains). Also, don't miss the slightly hidden vinyl room.
  • Best music store 4 music u can't find
  • Voted Best Place to Buy Music by City Paper Readers for Best of Baltimore 2011
  • Just an awesome store
  • They now have an amazing used record selection. Finally!!
  • Has every movie and CD you could ever possibly want. I also freaking love the staff they are the best.
  • Check out the $1 CD bin, occasionally there are $1 DVDs too.
  • Do u love records?then this is the place 4u.
  • More vinyl, but used CDs are now mixed in with new discs. Seems like used CDs may be a much smaller portion of their inventory. Very few CD box sets, too!
  • If you're buying used cds, CHECK THE CD BEFORE YOU BUY! Twice I've bought cds and later got home and found the wrong one inside.
  • I love this place... They always have the stuff I can't find elsewhere
  • I discovered dubstep here
  • Best music selection in Baltimore and pretty cheap. Not as good as they once were but still great. Staff are mostly super-pretensious hipsters who treat you like human waste, but they are knowledgable
  • Go to Sound Garden and look for things you want of the CD and DVD variety. Chances are, you'll find it. I have found some awesome CDs there I've never found anywhere else.
  • Great LP selection
  • Few record shops dot our local businesses anymore, so its actually kind of nostalgic and wonderful to walk through here. Extensive vinyl & CD collection, great playlist inside, knowledgeable staff!
  • Great selection of new and used movies, DVDs & Blu-rays, cd's and vinyl. Really great rare items, and deep foreign and horror movie sections. Great prices, a favorite!
