1.0 out of 5 stars Finally...., 29 Sept. 2012
This review is from: Squeeze (Audio CD)
As a Velvet Underground fan (still ... after all these years) I used to buy anything with their name on it. And so I have lots of records with all sorts of crazy odd and ends on them - much of which is of very variable quality, but all of it is (far) better than Squeeze. Buyer beware. Every song is incredibly lame, which is a feat in itself. However, buying this may satisfy your curiosity as there may be that nagging suspicion that maybe the writer of this review just doesn't get it. And you'd be right.

Writing this has made at least made me go back through my Velvet LP's again. There's a lot of happy memories there. For my taste they are the best example of what can be done with a guitar band. Just stunning. At least it can be said that there's only one duffer that appears under their name. I wouldn't want to be without any other music by them, but then again the album of which this is almost a review isn't by them - It's a Doug Yule solo album. Moe Tucker is brilliant; in many respects unsurpassed. Sterling Morrison is a legend. Very few people have made as much crazy and wonderful music as John Cale (New album out BTW). And Lou Reed still trades on this band (as would I if I had this in my legacy). The addition of Nico on the first album made for tremendous listening. (Indeed, it's more than worthwhile to check out her catalogue as well.) None of their influence is discernible on this record.

There's a great deal of wonderful music in this world, none of which puts in an appearance here.
