Definetly the best Nico album; the only thing that lacks is a these daysish single, but it dosn't need it. Terrifing.

Musically really impressive, but really just isn't something I'd listen to often.

That's a great summary Yourselfisntsteam. Both this and Desertshore are brilliant works of art. I was really torn as to which one of the two I would include in my 100 list.
