The Alternative Album Of The 1960's,
This review is from: The Velvet Underground & Nico (Audio CD)
Bought this album when i was 15/16 and still hadnt developed a thought process which allowed me to apreciate its brilliance. Left it alone for about a year then played it again, and yes it is one of the most influential albums of all time. Alternative music starts here this is the invention of punk/garage/grunge and any other loose pigeon hole invented by the mass media.
Im not a fan of Nico if im honest (self important celeb humper kate moss of her day) but her voice does seem to suit the over all feel of this record. and she adds a softer edge to a pretty hard visceral album.
You wont beleive this was released in 1967 to be honest its at least ten years before its time.
Essential in anyone who really appreciates music, play it loud and scare the neighbours.
