 Their Best

Contrary to what ever else you might read...this is the Velvet Undergrounds best studio album by far. This album is nasty, ugly, atonal, jagged, uncomfortable, arty, amphetamine fueled rock n roll. There are also some very memorable tunes here as well. It has everything the first album had and more! It also boasts one of the very best guitar solos on any record ever on the on the 5th track 'I Heard Her Call My Name'.

As a very big fan of Velvet Underground it pains me to rate this album only two stars, yet i feel it is their weakest album by far. It begins witht he excellent White Light/White Heat and then suddenly plummits. The Gift is 8 minutes long and is just a story. It feels dreadful and sadly the backing music can not save the boring lacklustre narration. Lady Godiva's Operaton suffers the same boring fate although is an improvement. Here She Comes Now is a return to the good Velvet that i have come to enjoy. Okay the Vocals are hardly brilliant and the lyrics are nothing special ('oh she looks so good, she's made out of wood' haha) but still it's a very good song. I heard her call my name and Sister Ray again feel slightly boring, and very messy- even for who supposedly influenced an era of punk and garage lovers.

If you wonder that you have heard Sister Ray, go see Joy DIvisions album Still- i would say that version is better- although this is personal opinion.

Overall this album feels messy and I would advise anyone looking to enter the Velvet Underground universe to start with either thier first album that was messy but still good- or go to the much more polished two later albums. These three albums are classics

 Velvet Underground at their best!

I'm a big Velvet Underground fan, and this is their absolute masterpiece in my opinion. If you liked the Velvet Underground solo bit from their debut ("Velvet Underground & Nico"), then you should love this album! It's got much of the same formula, but a little less pop and a little more noise rock, which Lou Reed's been coined to invent later on. It's also (sadly) their last album to feature John Cale on bass guitar (and as a band member).
