Biography

by Richie Unterberger

The career of Lou Reed defies capsule summarization. Like David Bowie (whom Reed directly inspired in many ways), he has made over his image many times, mutating from theatrical glam rocker to scary-looking junkie to avant-garde noiseman to straight rock & roller to your average guy. A firmer grasp of rock's earthier qualities has ensured a more consistent ... Read more in Amazon's Lou Reed Store

I have been completing my Lou Reed collection and putting the harder to find, more expensive ones last. This is a wonderful Lou Reed album, probably one of his best, but mainly available as a Japanese Import.
For some reason the last few albums from the Eighties (before the "return to glory" of New York) do not seem to have been reissued on CD.
I must confess to finding Metal Machine Music relaxing, and Lou is not for everyone, but if you like more than, say, three Lou Reed albums then you will really like this one.
I'm not going to do a track by track breakdown or anything actually helpful, but as Kevin Smith might say "Check this out"

Wow, what a great album. From the rocking opener I Love You Suzanne this is one song after another of Lou at his melodic best, with horns, keyboards and backing singers used to great effect. As a celebration of life, it does occasionally hint at the dark side (like violence in Endlessly Jealous, My Friend George and loneliness in What Becomes A Legend Most) but the overall impression is one of finding magic in everyday experiences. My favourite tracks are Doing The Things … with its glorious girl chorus and the almost ethereal, breezy High In The City (“Don’t wanna talk politics today/Feelin’ pretty witty/Getting’ high off of the city …” and that just about sums up the mood of the album.

Occasionally inspiring and never less than solid New Sensations shows Lou coming to terms with modern technology far more effectively than many of his contemporaries. The mid eighties was a strange time in music because traditional instrumentation/recording methods seemed so deeply unfashionable even the musical greats felt it was necessary to compromise their sound simply to be heard.

Lou is largely successful here, particularly with the title track 'New Sensations'. His use of a drum machine in addition to band member Fernando Saunders highly effective bass makes for a Lou classic. 'I Love You Suzanne' is also highly effective - its rock 'n' roll spirit proving a great deal of fun.

Many of the songs lyrics (in particularly the chorus's) do sound a little repetitive especially 'Down At The Arcade' and 'My Red Joystick' but these songs do reveal themselves to be rather addictive on repeated listens.

New Sensations is one of Lou's most commercial albums (and poppiest) and that's by no means a bad thing on this occasion.
