Used Records & Tapes #2 review zine

  • 5.5 x 8.5 in. 40 pages, full-color glossy cover, b&w throughout, stapled, 80 lb paper, 110 lb cover

  • ...this is a remarkably well-produced little book, and a nice collection of music criticism. Most endearing are the hand-drawn reproductions of reviewed album covers, some impressively accurate and others delightfully off-kilter. The reviews themselves also tend towards the funny. By its nature, Used Records & Tapes deals primarily in nostalgia, but none of the critics leave their biases unexamined. Some reviews are vectors for personal stories, of live shows or music discovered as a youth, and some reflections more on music history in general, and the changing landscape of pop, rap, or boy bands.—Ian Gregory, ComicsXF
