3.0 out of 5 stars You may be dissapointed, 26 Jan. 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Loaded (Audio CD)
If you're reading this, chances are that you fulfill the following criteria: 1/Bought and loved the first velvet underground and Nico album, 2/Are confused by the velvets patchy back catalogue, and are wondering what to buy next.
Well, I can safely say that if you really need more velvets then this might be the album for you. If you loved the more acessable tracks on "The VU and Nico" such as "Sunday Morning" and "There she goes again", then chances are you'll love this album too. It contains many fine examples of the Velvet's unique brand of off kilter pop music, with the pretty "Who Loves the Sun" and the essential combination of "Rock and Roll" & "Sweet Jane. If however, your tastes on the first album went toward the wackier "Venus in Furs", "Black Angel's Death Song" then you'll more than likely hate this album. Its difficult to understate just how commercial this album is. For example, Lou Reed was so upset with the results, he quit the band and washed his hands of the album. It is also worth considering that at this point in the Velvet's timeline, Lou Reed was to a large extent being phased out of the band to make way for the girl friendly Doug Yule, who's sappy rather dull influence, and will to commercialise pervades some of the weaker tracks on this album. This isn't a bad album at all, but fans of the harder music would be better off with the fantastically minimal "White Heat White Light", with its bizzare stories and brutal proto-punk.
