>Much more soon, but I had to pass along some news for the uninitiated.
Big Star’s long-anticipated box set, Keep An Eye on the Sky, is now available for purchase, consumption, hand-holding, long walks on the beach, potentially spooning, but is not yet ready to meet your parents. Don’t rush it.
Of course, the jury’s back, the verdict’s in, and it’s unanimous: somewhere between “best box set ever” and “best thing humanity’s made since democracy.”
Pitchfork: “…rock’s greatest cult band.”
Rolling Stone: “4 1/2 stars…stubborn, brilliant defiance.”
Onion A/V: “…perfect power pop and a beautiful shambles of a third album.”
So read up, whet your appetite, and buy the darn thing already. You’re out of excuses.
I am the cosmos,
