The most difficult to like of all albums I've listened to, but certainly one of the most rewarding. Perfect perfect perfect.

@ poppmusic: It's intended to emulate a racing heart beat.

The song Heroin is sort of like listening to a train wreck, inconsistent, ugly, confusing and so on. Spastic changes in the drums just adds to this imo

Pretty much invented the entire concept of alternative, underground, independent, punk.....whatever you want to call it, it started here. Some will argue that people only like this for its level of influence, but we know better than that, don't we?

So cutting-edge, it took ten years for people to figure out it was actually good.

From RobertChristgau 05/09/2015 18:25
This was hard to suss out at the time, which is probably why people are still learning from it. It sounds intermittently crude, thin, and pretentious at first, but it never stops getting better; even "Venus in Furs," Lou Reed's first recorded sadie-maisie exploitation, is held in place by the narcotic drone that identifies and unifies the LP musically. Nico's contained chantoozy sexuality works against the dispassionate abandon of Reed's chant singing for a vocal variety the band will never duplicate, although their ever-increasing mastery of electric noise and throwaway wordplay will more than make up for it. How about that--they're gonna be famous more than 15 minutes.

95/100 = A
