When I decided to go ahead and start a site/board to post album reviews, I tried to think of a name that worked for me.
From 1986 to 1994 I worked at an independent record store called Vista Records and Tapes in Vista, California. It was a great store. While we carried plenty of copies of the hits, we also had a good selection of lesser known Jazz, Heavy Metal, and Alternative groups and we carried a good selection of import records and CD's.

It was there that I first started reviewing albums. My reviews were both verbal (giving the customers my views on the albums they may be interested in) and in print on flyers.
Since that was a fun time for me, and I enjoyed doing that, I decided to call the website/board, "Vista Records."
And there is a bit of a double meaning to it since vista does mean, "View," and you'll be getting views (and reviews) on albums on this website.
So hopefully you'll enjoy the reviews and find them helpful.
