BIG STAR In Space Ryko RCD10677 (2005)
Big Star, hailing from Memphis, recorded several pop albums in the 70s and recently reformed for this new effort.
Itís a strange mixture, that will probably prove popular with guitar pop fans. A pleasant if aimless mix of west coast pop, 90s indie pop and touches
of pub rock. That said, there are some nice tunes and in "Best Chance" an interesting bass line.
Thereís more than a nod towards Brian Wilson in "Turn My Back On The Sun".
High quality blandness.
