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

Very simple, yet very elegant and beautiful. Like having some great poetry being sung to you how it is supposed to be (and from a beautiful voice) all the while having great music accompany the lyricism. A very good glass of champagne. A chocolate covered strawberry. A single rose.

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
