My favourite music group. One of the best groups of all time. My favourite albums are The Velvet Underground & Nico (*****) and The Velvet Underground (*****). White Light/White Heat is very good too (****1/2). Loaded is medium (***1/2).

Still the best rock band of all time. Everybody knows the studio albums but their live stuff is just as good. Check out the Matrix Tapes, the Gymnasium Set and various brilliant bootleg recordings. What a band.

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

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.
