As Tolstoy might have put it, "good record stores are all alike," whatever their size or stock or the number of tattoos sported by their customers.

Finlay takes a gentle approach with her subjects, letting their passion - and hers - guide the doc, which was crowd-source funded by more than 250 donors.

Observer [UK]

It's a delightful, real-life version of Nick Hornby's novel High Fidelity, a song of love, sadness and mortality with everyone involved doing it their way as they face the vinyl curtain.

This is London

For a seemingly naive film, it is amazing how well it works.

A cheap and cheerful documentary about a properly endangered species: the record shop.

Sound It Out is the name of the last independent record shop in Teeside, and this dinky, bittersweet film offers a profile of its chipper staff and endearingly oddball clientele.

Proof that, in the right hands, documentaries boast as much heart as any feature. This one got soul too. Wonderful.

Ms. Finlay's smartly assembled film is an affectionate portrait of a shrinking group of record collectors under technological siege.

Finlay's handheld style is as casually intimate as her subjects, and the film stirringly posits music as a path to communal bliss.

Sound It Out is content to exist as a modest portrait of a store that offers not only largely obsolete collectors' items, but also the resolute glimmer of human contact.

Sound It Out isn't just good, it's important, as a chronicle of everything we lose when the music industry decamps to the Internet.
