Few bands release only great albums.

And a VERY select, like the VU, released only albums that would forever influence the music scene.

Fascinating music but for me they don't have the back catalogue to rival the very best.

This album has the most famous album cover, it's a great iconic art piece .Album has some great songs but I'm certain the Andy Warhol tag has helped this album get its fame rather than the music is a classic time piece in New York
