Giving it 4 stars because I love Alex Chilton but it's closer to 3 stars objectively. I read a few comments that Radio City was in its own way the equal of #1 Record. I am here to tell you it's not even close- Radio City, though it certainly has a few catchy tunes, still has that special Big Star sound, that sensitive and clear guitar work, those great vocals- it still pales in comparison to #1 Record. And yes, I miss Chris Bell though apparently he did help write a good deal of songs on Radio city. "You Get What You Deserve", "Back of a Car" & "September Gurls" are the clear winners on the album, all catchy and at this point we call them "classics". It's a pity the rest of the songs don't grab me like these. Perhaps over time the album will grow on me, we'll see.
Well, I'm checking in again, about 6 months later and am delighted to say this album really has grown on me. Been listening to it every day in the car. I'm giving it the full 5 stars especially due to "she's a Mover" and "Daisy Glaze" wow those are simply sublime.
