Lou Reed is great...........But not all the time!!,
This review is from: The Blue Mask (Audio CD)
This guy can break you heart with one word and comfort your soul in one breath about the love of life and the world that we live in. Sorry, but this one falls flat.
Started off by getting gently breezed in. I was open minded after the first track but bit by bit it gets worse. It was not up to the high standard set in his earlier records. I did not connect with his lyrics as strongly as I did with his other records. Its an album where none of the songs are catchy enough to stay in your head. This album is not one of his classics to me.
I really enjoy listening to Lou Reeds work but this just did not inspire me. This is just my opinion and a different perspective, so please make up your own minds on the album.
