I just want to take a pair of scissors and cut off the last two tracks on this album so it can be perfect.

Not much to be said, the album is an absolute classic, though I don't think it's absolutely perfect. The very last track isn't great and goes on too long. I would much rather focus on the positives, of wich there are many. Everything between track 3 and 11 is great particularly the classic "Venus in Furs" whcih is so experimental and brilliant and, of course, "Heroin" which is a masterpiece (and is, in fact, absolutely perfect)

No matter what your tastes are, there will be a song on here for you, so give it a try, but be warned, you won't love everything.

Nico รจ la ciliegina su di una torta fatta della voce, la scrittura e gli accordi di Lou Reed, della viola di John Cale, delle particolari percussioni di Moe Tucker e della banana di Andy Warhol. FONDAMENTALE.

Way ahead of its time. And the subject matter covered here most definitely did not show up on any of their peers' records! True classic.

This album is quite possibly the most influential album to any alternative genre. It is a true masterpiece.

What could I possibly say about this album that hasn't already been said? From its provocative lyrical themes to its notorious initial commercial reception it seems everything about this record has been mythologized to the point that its "peel slowly and see" cover is probably more widely recognized than the actual music. Which is a shame, because this is the Velvet Underground & Nico we're talking about
'67 was almost bursting at the seams with iconic rock releases but for me none other sound as timeless and futuristic as this one (try imagining the reaction 'The Black Angel Death Song' would have had if it had been on Sgt. Pepper). The fusion of Nico's soothing balladry with the uneasy strut of Reed's gives this album a musical aesthetic that still remains so sought after yet impossible to recreate (hence the Eno quote "everyone who bought one of those 30,000 copies started a band").
Despite their next two releases also being brilliant it's this one that's responsible for ushering in the modern era of rock music as we know and love it.

Most of this is copied from the description of the album in my overall chart, do check it out if you have the time!!
