Another unknown classic...

I'll admit that I didn't learn of Big Star until after viewing the documentary on their career. I first heard of them as "the band that wrote the theme song to That 70's Show". I decided to pick up their first album and was blown away. It's still completely baffling how this band slipped through the cracks of the early seventies? The songwriting and musicianship is absolutely amazing and there's not any half hearted material or filler. Radio City, their sophmore effort is no exception. Even without the input of guitarist Chris Bell the band mines the well of whatever gift was given to them in their abilities. I don't do song by song reviews because it's really all self interpretation anyways right? I'd recommend picking up their first album #1 Record first then get this one to help complete the bigger picture.*****
