Another great gone.
Was going to post Holocaust, but decided that was far too gloomy. Better the bittersweet reminiscences of Thirteen recorded in 2008.
For me, the first two Big Star albums are fine but it’s the sprawling mess of Sister/Lovers that’s the band’s work of genius. Ramshackle and nightmarish with the odd moments of serene beauty – even the ‘fun’ rock ‘n’ roll covers seem to come from the edge.
