An absolute shame that a slew of (albeit very talented) men took her album and bastardized it into something she felt she couldn't be proud of.

Nico being unable to listen to Chelsea Girl without breaking into tears tells me all I need to know about the stifling of her creative vision; they took her music and shut her out, something I bet's happened a ton throughout the music industry's history especially with women.

Funny how Lou Reed et al concluded Nico wasn't good enough for the VU, and yet her voice is integral to their greatest album, and her creative output soared without an ounce of his input.

Still really like this album (and Lou Reed & VU too). Wonder what this would've sounded like if Nico's vision had been carried to fruition.

Sad to hear that Nico didn’t like the production, orchestrations and especially flute. I love all of these elements, along with her voice and goth-like appearance. She was a pop culture fenomenon, and this is a damn brilliant album. Makes you feel like you’re in the 18th century, 1967 and 24th century all at once, if that makes any sense

Wonderful simple yet complex, rough yet soft. Amazing dichotomy to this record. a true classic that grows better on repeated listens.

Sounds nothing like its contemporaries, and also like nothing since. A real gem of an album.

With haunting voice and slow delivery, she transports you to a time much further away than 1967.....

I used to hate Nico's voice. Even when I started to love VU & Nico, I still hated her voice. After mass listening of VU & Nico, her voice grew on me, but I still wasn't a fan. It took this record to change my view. Wow, this record. So folksy, so different to her VU contributions (bar It Was a Pleasure Then). She is a beautiful singer and a beautiful human being. So much beauty. Like sitting in a daisy field. Aah. Daisies.

Not bad, huh? The musos and scenesters may well opt for The Marble Index, and Nico may have later disowned it, but Chelsea Girl is a truly stunning LP. The opening triumverate of songs (Fairest Of The Seasons/These Days/Little Sister) are truly sublime - the missing link between the Velvets and Nick Drake. All this in spite of half of "It Was A Pleasure Then" sounding like someone scraping their nails down a blackboard.

Not bad. Reminds me of Brian Eno for some reason, no clue why though. Best tracks are I'll Keep It With Mine & Wrap Your Troubles In Dreams
