This review is from: Sally Can't Dance (Audio CD)
I read elsewhere on amazon that this album is execrable. Aaaah the joys of human perception. I believe even Lou hates this one But! not the story from where I sit. This is a joy. The band are so good on this, ss anyone who saw the band on tour will testify. Reed picked up the leftovers of New York band Rinoceros and what a sound. Danny Weiss scratchy guitar playing - fantastic. Like the trick the Beatles use all the time - just wee bits of promise on the fade outs or phrases used once and never again.
Title track smoothed over for the NYC man compilation. Live versions of Kill Your Sons released instead of the real one. Even Animal Language - free from the shackles of being literate Reed shows his rythmic lyrical genius.
Sometimes being Lou must be a heavy burden - on this one he went out incognito for a while. If you don't like it you're a snob.
