I respect this album for it's massive influence on music, but I couldn't get into it, which is a shame, because this is the one of the greatest albums of all time.

Requires several listens to get into, but it pays off in the end.

I had heard the name "Velvet Underground" plenty of times before, but never heard any music by them. Lou Reed died, and when I saw damn near every artist I like try to pay him tribute in some way, I decided to listen to this album for the first time. It was good.

Still trying to get into this one, but I've managed to like it quite a bit more than I did when I first heard it. Definitely an acquired taste for me.

I could listen to this album 24/7 and still wouldn't get bored. That's how good this is.
I'll be your Mirror and Heroin are outstanding.

One of the finest compliments I can pay this album is that despite the fact it's a product of the "classic rock" era, it still gets virtually no radio airplay on classic rock FM radio. You are still far more likely to hear it on college radio. More than 45 years later, it's still too "out there" for mainstream audiences.
