The other journals are not shit. Its just that employers are not going to be able to distinguish between the secondary journal. Law Review is best because employers know its the hardest to get on. Three of the other four have the same selection process, the write on, and the other has some weird thing after it. So essentially law review is first, all others are equal, at least from a prestige/jobs point of view.

It's always going to be

1. Law review
2. The topic of journal that most interests you
3. Whatever you got on that is least objectionable.

Do a journal, but not on Law review, not going to matter much.

Ouch, so being a senior or executive articles editor of a secondary journal is worthless.
