Say whatever but I think the self titled album (Not the Nico one) should be on the top 100.

Way better than Beatles. Possibly the greatest band of all time.

Favorite albums are self titled and loaded I think now... I feel the one with Nico I've tired out of and feel Mr. Warhol made it a little too "artistic" for some of it. Maybe I'll come back to it someday in the same light I once had for it.

Of their first four, there's not a bad song or album in the mix. Each one is like a child with a distinct personality. You can't choose a favorite.
