5.0 out of 5 stars Songs To Be Proud Of, 18 July 2002
This review is from: Lou Reed (Audio CD)
Well, what can i say? The Velvet Underground are no more and what can a poor Lou do? Record some of the most well written and beautifully crafted songs ever, that's what!
This CD features new songs and tunes that Lou was obviously toying with in the Velvets. Although I can appreciate that the playing on this album could be considered a bit "session-y",there is some suberb interplay between the musicians.Check out "Berlin",and wallow in the sad,loose play-off between guitar and piano, not to mention the fantastic holding of the rhythm section.
The lyrics on this album are absolutely suberb,every song has meaning and emotion,a great songwriter at the height of his ability.
I can get into this album so easily, and can wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who needs "a soundtrack of their lives", because, believe me, when you listen to these songs,you will remember the scene you're going through.I hope it's happy, but if not, you'll remember the time with fondness.Godbless.
