5.0 out of 5 stars As Good As It Gets..., 5 Oct 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Radio City (Audio CD)
Record companies are very good at selling you stuff you've already got, and I've got several versions of 'Radio City', the second album by Big Star. It's funny that, when you buy a reissue of an album that you've known and loved for (in the case of this 'un) thirty odd years, you somehow expect each version to sound better. Well, it doesn't, but it sounded nigh-on perfect then, and successive decades have not dimmed its shimmer or lustre. Much more Alex Chilton's creation, than its predecessor, 'Radio City' is rich in spangly, jangly guitars, superb song craft and wonderful tunes. From the dense, in-your-face sub rockabilly twang of 'O My Soul', throught to the Stonesy swagger of 'Mod Lang' and the clanging arpeggios of 'You Get What You Deserve', 'Radio City' never stints on pressing the pleasure centres.
