Big Star’s never-completed third album is enshrined in a triple-disc box that contains all known recordings from the 1974 sessions and finally makes sense of all the chaos.┬áThe primary gift of Complete Third is to reveal that this was a deliberate performance, not audio verite. Perhaps Third was, as Jim Dickinson claimed, the sound of decomposition. But by presenting the demos, working sessions and final mixes in order, Complete Third makes plain that far from being an unwieldy jumble, Alex Chilton meant to have Third sound as tortured, haunting and beautiful as the darkest moments of the soul.
