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.

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.
