I agree - this is a bit of a hidden Lou treasure. Well paced with many interesting lyrics and guitar or keyboard licks. I particularly love Turn to Me, the guitar riff is excellent. Also really like Doin' The Things We Want To and High In The City.
Weakest tracks for me are Red Joy Stick and Endlessly Jealous

This album on the surface embraced 80s pop especially on songs like I Love You Suzanne, My Red Joystick, New Sensations and Down At The Arcade but the other tracks contain Lou’s typical streetwise lyrics. It is definitely a change of pace and an enjoyable release.

If you're a big Lou Reed fan like me, you will like this. Suprisingly good album.
