Review by John Noyd
June 2013

A soundtrack to a documentary about a band that has been the soundtrack to countless adolescence, “Nothing,” documents an achingly soulful descent from the rebellious to the defeated. These twenty-one previously unreleased versions of Big Star’s three-album output preserve the final versions’ gallivanting rhythms, Memphis-inspired riffs and cast-iron harmonies; showcasing the delicate line this strong, talented band tread between power-pop pioneers and grunge grandfathers. Rock’s first cult band, the drama created between the band’s duel leaders and cruel injustices they withstood from the record industry infiltrated into their songs, yielding bittersweet masterpieces of fist-shaking angst and open-hearted yearnings steeped in the fickle moods of disgruntled youth. Packaging thwarted dreams into melodious odes to innocence and anger, the tender, splendid, “Hurt,” reopens wounds and massages scars.
