Third / Sister Lovers (Bonus Tracks)
by Big Star
Released: Mar 1978
The template for the let's-try-anything aesthetic of Beck and Badly Drawn Boy. Fans of this shambling masterwork tend to confuse Big Star's biography with the actual music: remembered as despairing, it's actually full of eccentric, defiant, life-affirming pop rockers like "Thank You Friends" and "You Can't Have Me," as well as tracks entitled "Holocaust."
