The definitive statement in 60's art rock and banana iconography.

The Velvet Underground & Nico est un album de Art Rock très réussi : la musique underground est parfaite, les voix de Nico et Lou Reed sont angéliques et la pochette d'album faite par Andy Warhol est génialle... Cependant c'est un vieil album et donc l'enregistrement est assez horrible...
Meilleurs titres : Sunday Morning, Venus in flurs, Femme fatale.

Velvet Underground isn't a soft listen, the sound isn't top notch in this one (and in their next one), but It combines with the essence of the album. This debut is about the dirty low-lifes of New York in the 60s, Lou Reed speaks for them, in controversial lyrics about drugs, prostitution and sex. There is a softer side to this album as well, Nico songs "Femme Fatale", "All Tomorrow Parties" and "I'll be your Mirror" are a calmed down listen, and "Sunday Morning" is a great opener, easy to listen, could have been in their soft self-titled album from 1969. Great album from the 60s standpoint, there is similar albums to Sgt Peppers in that time, not the same can be said about The Velvet Underground and Nico.

A very interesting and varied listened from the more dream like calm tracks 'Sunday Morning' and 'All Tomorrow's Parties' to the dirty more frenzied tracks 'Heroin' and 'Venus In Furs'. One of my favourites.

A perfect album in my opinion. Dynamic. Gritty. Experimental. Velvet Underground & Nico inspired countless of artists that would help pave way and develop boundary-pushing genres!

I´m glad finally listened to this album. I didn´t think much of it, but there were definitely some great tracks on here. Maybe I just need to listen to more music to understand and appreciate this album more. But until then, it´s not bad, but not amazing, either.

Sorry don’t get it - what is so fantastic about this album? Mediocre songs, flat vocals, bland...bland...bland. I have done my due diligence by having to sit through repeated listening of this album. I’m not trying to offend I just don’t understand the large fan base behind the Velvet Undergound. I do like Andy Warhol and his work so bonus points for that connection.

One of the most influencial albums of its time. I really enjoy listening to it once in a while. But I think it didn't age too well, compared to othe late 60's stuff. Beatles, King Crimson debut. Forever Changes. Piper and Zeppelin.
