I love this lp. Was scared off by the poor vinyl reports, so just went with the cd, which sounds great. Still may grab the vinyl anyway. Lots of people think Big Star sounded cheesy, soft, too. Sometimes highly introspective music is difficult for some to listen to. I get that. DC is a very introspective writer, always has been, always will be. Not for everybody. But as authentic and real as they come. Which, in this day and age particularly, is not only rare, but desperately needed. How wonderful to still have somebody like David Crosby releasing great art these days. Makes me feel just a little bit better about things.
