This album truly hides wonderful stories behind an even bigger sound and revolution in music history.

Although produced by genius Warhol, "The Velvet Underground & Nico" sold extremely poorly with ~30,000 initial LPs.

What no one had any idea of in 1967 was the huge influence this recording would come to have a vast array of artists, the list goes on and on.

This album embodies everything that was considered highly inappropriate in '67. Directly relating to domestic violence, serious substance abuse and S&M, the album knows no shame and became defining in lyrical expression and bluntness.


Instrumentally, this also has inspired many different genres, punk, various genres of psychedelia, this list also goes on and on.

The music is dark and near, production is great and soundstage is hammer-in-your-head up front, and the only Lo-Fi album that I really love for its production.

I am truly glad being able to enjoy this great, but demanding, album.

I can't believe this just jumped the White Album.

Here's to hoping it stays that way!

Produced by highly acclaimed artist Andy Warhol, The Velvet Underground & Nico has perhaps the greatest success story of all time. After only selling 30,000 initial copies, the album went on to influence a vast array of music artists, including the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Stooges, Sex Pistols, U2, Nirvana, Strokes, and many more. This album embodies the urban grit of the 1960s, and then some. Providing a remarkably unbiased, objective lyrical portrayal of dark subject matter including peer pressure, sadomasochism, domestic violence, and substance abuse, the album shows how humans tend to gravitate toward these things to escape from a chaotic reality. The album also points out the irony in that people often look to these things to flee from society's problems when these things actually cause many of society’s problems. Not only were the lyrics a crucial turning point for music, but instrumentally it encompasses and trailblazes many different genres, from protopunk to psychedelic pop to quasi-reggae. The album's sound and lyrics are drenched with dark subject matter and encapsulate many of society's greatest problems which, 50 years later, are as relevant as ever.

Key tracks: Heroin, Venus in Furs, Sunday Morning

As far as I'm concerned, influence is a completely separate criterion from quality. This album and any other album should be rated/reviewed for how it sounds musically and lyrically, not whether X would or wouldn't exist today if the album was never created.
