This came out in 1967? This sounds like it came out 10 years later. Listening to this album is like traveling through a hot, dry desert. I guess if I had one compliant about this album is that Sunday morning does sound a little too out of place in this album, but this album is still a masterpiece. 10/10

Being the only album from this website's top-14 I didn't own, I thought I needed to give this album a listen. So I bought it.

I listened to it... and it was a harder task than I would have thought! I really struggled to listen to it in its entirety. The "bad" production, the horrible viola sound, the overall lack of tightness and the many songs I hated made this listen a big challenge for me.

Honestly, if this album was not rated as high as it is on this website, I wouldn't have bothered to listen to it in its entirety. I would have just given up, thinking that this had been made by very untalented people having no clue on how to record music.

Now, I've listened to it two times. But I don't think I can do it anymore. To me, this is very poorly executed music. Somehow, the poor production of this has been attributed to a very clever artistic choice and now it is regarded as genius. I understand that. But I just don't buy it. I mean, it could be true, but it definitely sounds more like people who don't know how to do it well, so they do it poorly and try to make-up by saying it's an artistic decision. Like the 6-year-old me drawing a cat. I could have done it well, but I chose to do draw it very poorly... The truth is, I couldn't draw shit.

If it talks to you, good for you! But for me, this is not even close to what I'm looking for when listening to music.

Probably the Landmark of Alternative Rock Culture.
Rivals the influential power of Sgt. Pepper's released the same year.
Favorites: Venus in Furs, Heroin, Sunday Morning, Femme Fatale

Easily one of the best albums of time (maybe even the best). Nothing more to say.

The earliest thing of alternative you'll get before "Marquee Moon". Lou Reed's Bob-Dylan like vocals combine perfectly with his sarcastic and sinister lyrics. Most dynamic album of the 60's.
Favorite Tracks:Sunday Morning, Heroin, Black Angel's Death Song

This album sets an indescribable mood, that not everyone is gonna be able to understand, or enjoy. This album has an unparalleled artsy vibe, while embodying New York's culture and sleeze of perhaps not only the 1960s,but the of today as well.
