I think people already get how brilliant this album is so I'll pick my 5 favorite tracks.

Sunday Morning, Venus In Furs, Heroin, There She Goes Again, and I'll Be Your Mirror

Enough has been said about this record, and talking about its legacy in the world of music would be a bit of an insult because of my lack of knowledge in history of music. I only know this record is pretty amazing, especially when put in context (that same year McCartney and Lennon felt all grown-up because they sang "I'd love to turn you on" because they were talking about drugs and were banned from BBC). Interesting stories, interesting music, interesting use of instruments (and noises, of course).

Favorite track: "Heroin", of course. How is it possible that I know how tasting heroin feels like without having actually done it? This song simply is something else.

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.
