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.

It's tough to judge something now that was so innovative when it was released. It still holds up as a good album for me even though the recording quality may make it sound a bit old.

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.
