I can just look in disbelief at the comments here. They really were one of the most innovative bands ever, and if you're not 100% into them (like me) just don't rate. It's like giving the Beatles 50/100 cause you don't like them or diss Nirvana cause they have 'bad guitar solos'... I mean for example I don't love Beatles too much but it's not possible for a sane person to discredit the art and importance of these bands.

For their first 3 albums these guys just casually invented entire genres with every other song.

My favourite music group. One of the best groups of all time. My favourite albums are The Velvet Underground & Nico (*****) and The Velvet Underground (*****). White Light/White Heat is very good too (****1/2). Loaded is medium (***1/2).

Still the best rock band of all time. Everybody knows the studio albums but their live stuff is just as good. Check out the Matrix Tapes, the Gymnasium Set and various brilliant bootleg recordings. What a band.

Say whatever but I think the self titled album (Not the Nico one) should be on the top 100.

Way better than Beatles. Possibly the greatest band of all time.

Favorite albums are self titled and loaded I think now... I feel the one with Nico I've tired out of and feel Mr. Warhol made it a little too "artistic" for some of it. Maybe I'll come back to it someday in the same light I once had for it.

Some of their songs are a little strange, but all together it's great
