New York Post "This paperback collection of Reed ruminations is not only a lyrical walk on the wild side, it's a typographic wonder." "John Shelton Ivany Top 21" "A comprehensive collection...A must-have for any fan...Crucial to understanding and appreciating Lou Reed." Gallery & Studio, 2/09 "The revelation of Pass Thru Fire: The Collected Lyrics is how well many of Lou's words hold up on the page."

Pass Thru Fire, the recent volume of Reed's collected lyrics--dedicated to 'L.A.,' Laurie Anderson--provides another version of that novel, and even without the essential soundtrack, the lyrics possess a remarkable organic coherence, charting a harrowing journey through the bohemian underworlds of New York City, through the ravages of heroin and speed, and emotional terror, fury and aloneness--and toward something like grace." --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
