It's hard to find a really good CD store in the Madison area. Especially near campus. Strictly Discs is the best I've found. They have a lot of the music I'm into, which often times falls under the indie rock category. It's hard to find indie music at, say, Best Buy.
It's a cozy store on Monroe St. with an attractive sign to draw you in.
Another plus is if you go onto their website : www.strictlydiscs.com you can see what the staff tops pics are for the year. Given the fact that the staff and I have similar musical interests, I enjoy this resource.
