This "Best of " provies opportunitites for both and has more. Yes, and it is also missing some crackers too.
A splendid, delightful range of sounds that copied nobody but was subsequently much copied. "What goes on" would still definitely find its way into my top 5 tunes of all time.
The cool, slightly faggy, sardonic Lou Reed, who wrote nearly all of the VU songs, mixed sleazy lyrics about queens and drug dealers (and drugs, naturally) and all other types of street life to pop melodies, and the band could rock (what goes on, i'm waiting for the man) as well as they cold do the slower, touching number (candy says, i've found a reason).
This is a pretty good collection of their work, which consisted of four essential studio albums and three live albums also worth purchasing, as well as two seperate albums of extra material recorded in between albums released in the 80's. There are some essential VU tracks which are not on this CD, but that just means you can discover them on the albums! You lucky piggies!
Now no greatest hits collection could ever do justice to the albums released by the VU, their debut album being apparently one of the most influential recorde in rock history, the second being a strangely wonderful blast of sonic sound, the third countering slow and fragile pop songs with downright tunes and a half, and the fourth has Sweet Jane (that shut you up did'nt it?)
Still, i would reccomend to anyone interested in this band to first buy the third album, and then use your opinion of that record to decide whether you'll purchase the rest (none of them are expensive anyway, you can ussualy get them for maybe a fiver), as the third album is probably the most accessible.Read more ›
Has a similar hypnotic effect as The Doors on me - especially 'Heroin' - love it!
