'Radio City' is the second record from the historically unsuccessful rock 'n' roll act Big Star, who have recently risen to revisionist critical acclaim, and were the focus of the 2012 rockumentary 'Nothing Can Hurt Me'. Fronted by Alex Chilton, Andy Hummel and Jody Stephens, 'Radio City' shows off the band's dedication to writing power pop hooks, as well as their affection to the British pop bands like the Kinks, who they most thoroughly tried to be like.

10/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 15th October 2014
For me, this is the second best Big Star album. This is the one with "September Gurls" on. The song that would have probably been a huge hit if things had worked out differently for them. Melodic, chiming guitars - all the ingredients necessary. Sadly it wasn't to be. Lack of success, however, doesn't detract from the quality of music within. Chris Bell had left the band by this point so the reins were fully in the hands of Alex Chilton and his more rock 'n' roll approach is made clear from the off with "O My Soul". "Back Of A Car" and "Mod Lang" are other stand out tracks. How it didn't sell at the time is anyones guess.
