Not sure why this song is rated so low. I really like the guitar, think it's a satisfying ending to a great album.
Like almost every song on the record, this song is perfect. When I see all the negative comments about this song I just don't understand, if you don't like this song, do you really like The Velvet Underground? I mean they're one of the most experimental and innovative bands of all time, this song only being 2nd to Sister Ray as their most experimental. If you dislike this song, you definitely aren't ready for WL/WH that's for sure.
If you're 5 minutes into the album, it'd be hard to believe it ends like this. But it does and I love it.
I'm surprised that so many people seem to dislike this track because I think it's the perfect closer for TVU&N. It is probably the most experimental track on the album, and it paved the way for future experimental acts. You can't help but immediately hear how much this influenced artists like Sonic Youth, Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, and the likes. This song opened up so much more possibilities for rock music and how it could be performed. I love it. The first time I heard it, I played it again and again and again.
This is what writing to many songs about heroin can do to you :D
This is the track that stops this album from being perfect. A pointless and pretentious wall of noise that goes on far too long. The only good thing about this song(?) is that it's the last song so you can switch the album off after, the black angel's death song, although in truth I actually hate to do that. Still, this is awful, but considering the genius of the other tracks it doesn't ruin the album, just slightly tarnishes it.
I kind of feel like we got a little preview for this track from some of Run Run Run, but that guitar chaos just seems controlled with an ongoing beat, and only one guitar; at the very least, you get a brake with a "regular sounding song" section in between those portions. At the beginning of this song, I think the first time we all listened to it, we got excited for a head banging, fast past, great album finisher, with an awesome bass, but as the glass brakes - which I do very much like- we see that instead VU thought it best to individually practice their own instrument as if they were not trying to make any kind of enjoyable sound or song to finish, still, a great album....

What was the band smoking/injecting/snorting when they recorded this strange-yet-awesome song?
Ow. My ears.
