some fine power pop,
This review is from: radio city LP (Vinyl)
Not as immediate as "#1 Record", but far closer to the spirit of Big Star's debut than the odd, sparse, bleak "Third/Sister Lovers", this is old-school power pop reminiscent of the Stones, the Kinks and Alex Chilton's other classy sixties influences.
If you're new to Big Star this might not be the one to start with, but it's well worth the price of admission for the usual high standard of Big Star songs, ranging from the brassy blast of "Mod Lang" to the beautiful "I'm In Love With A Girl".
Still a pretty well-kept secret, anyone who likes proper pop-rock owes it to themselves to check out Big Star.
