Bought the merch
Feb 2020 • Keluarga
Did a quick visit on my last day in Reykjavik. Didn’t feel too welcomed by the grumpy staff behind the counter. Bought a T-shirt because of nostalgia and will probably not go back next time.

Incredible selection and sometimes entertainment
Nov 2019
We went to see the Iceland Airwaves off-venue show for "Revenge of Calculon" which was fabulous BTW, and browse this incredible shop with an amazing selection from the last 7 decades of all sorts of music. Stop in and say hi, I wish I bought a T-shirt (my one regret).

Lovely people and service
Jul 2019
I visited this store twice and I was able to talk to one of the employees about the Icelandic music industry (as I'm in a hunt for some icelandic artist - Thanks Eurovision) and were able to help me find the music that I'm after. Very friendly people. Their email/mail service is good too as I asked them if they had a CD on sale and if they could send it to me via mail. Overall... I spent most on my money on CD's in this store.

If you're a Music Lover, Lucky Records is Essential
Jul 2018 • Sendiri
Not going to lie: I was kind of surprised by how many record stores Reykjavik has for locals and tourists alike to browse. Maybe it's because back in the States, record shops are kind of like mini road trip destinations depending on where you are, but around Reykjavik, you can walk to several if you have comfortable shoes and time to kill. Or, you can just go to Lucky Records because you'll need plenty of time here, and this place leaves every other record shop in town in the dust when it comes to the variety of music available.

We walked over to Lucky Records on a Saturday morning and found the place relatively empty. There were maybe 10 people in the store, which sounds like a lot for most record shops, but Lucky Records is pretty spread out - the 10 people here could each be browsing a different section and never see one another. There are new and used records available for flipping through along the left and middle sections of the store, and a mini lounge area is on the right, where you can enjoy free coffee and either just relax or figure out what you want to listen to next.

There are a couple of listening stations set up in the store where you can hear any album that's already been opened to see if it's your style. Yes, that's right: you can enjoy free coffee and try out records before you buy them. That combo alone is worthy of a five-star rating in my book, but there's more to enjoy here.

You want t-shirts, including store logo shirts and some Bjork offerings? No problem. Interested in a literal wall of movies occupying shelves from floor to ceiling? Sure thing. How about long out of print CDs? Can do.

Perhaps most impressively is the Icelandic music section. Here you can find local artists you will not find back at home, and really get a flavor for what the Icelandic music scene has to offer. I was looking at the metal section, and the gentleman working the store guided me to some great picks. (When someone asks you what genres of metal you're into, and you respond with "black or doom," and they know what you're talking about, you know you are in a store that demands your respect and attention.) I'm now the proud owner of a couple of Sinmara albums, and they are absolutely brutal in the best way possible.

When all was said and done, Lucky Records made for a fantastic visit. This place comes easily recommended for anyone looking to expand their record collection, or their knowledge of Icelandic music.

Grab a coffee and spend some down-time
Jun 2018
A great find - just steps off the main drag. Give yourself time to explore the copious amounts of vinyl, cd's and kitch. Extremely knowledgeable staff, very fun to chat with. Can provide lots of information and recommendations including the various happenings in town.

I bought several CDs here

Good place to pick of CDs featuring Icelandic musical groups. Good selection. Helpful staff. Decent prices (CDs prices are kind of high in Iceland, and I found the best prices here).

I love this place!
Apr 2018
I searched this place out before I came to Reykjavík and it really met my expectations. Tons of great vinyl. In the states it’s really hard to find original lp’s of good hard rock/metal because they get picked through by resellers quickly. But Luckys had some great stuff. They even had the almost superstar band Babylon A.D.’s first album on vinyl!

Great Vinyl Collection
Apr 2018 • Keluarga
My 16 yr old son just discovered vinyl and loved this stop. A LOT of vinyl. He bought three used albums not rare, but not easily found in the US. He also asked one of the workers for an Icelandic recommendation based on my son's taste in music. So, he got some Icelandic vinyl that sounds great and probably not widely known in the US.

They also sell cool t-shirts for the store.

Vinyl addict's paradise in Reykjavik
Feb 2018 • Teman
Located at the far end of the main shopping drag, walking into Lucky Records is a welcome respite from the much more touristy areas of the city. My buddy had done his research and knew he would save this place for last - we had already visited each of the other shops in town selling LPs and, Lucky Records is hands down the best in town.

Lucky Records has a huge collection of new and used LPs, CDs and a great selection of poster art. The shop is cool, spacious, and unpretentious. The staff is very friendly, and they're knowledgeable: both about what is IN their vast collection, and what to recommend based on our loose answers to "what kinda music you like?"

Highlights for us include great electronic, hip hop, house, classical and local artist selections - and it's a super spot to maybe find that Icelandic pressing you're looking for. For example, we found an otherwise unavailable Icelandic pressing of Samaris - secondhand and in near-mint condition no less. The only problem we have now is figuring out how to get all this vinyl home to Cali!

We spent about three hours here and could easily have stayed longer had our tummies not grumbled. One of the nice gents, Thor, recommended the new food hall around the corner and so the good advice continued as we had a great meal there.

Cool shop
Des 2017 • Pasangan
You can listen to a lot of example records and samples, they have CD and vinyl, which is pretty cool I guess. Icelandic music is pretty extensive, but I only know a few artists. It was good
