I have been completing my Lou Reed collection and putting the harder to find, more expensive ones last. This is a wonderful Lou Reed album, probably one of his best, but mainly available as a Japanese Import.
For some reason the last few albums from the Eighties (before the "return to glory" of New York) do not seem to have been reissued on CD.
I must confess to finding Metal Machine Music relaxing, and Lou is not for everyone, but if you like more than, say, three Lou Reed albums then you will really like this one.
I'm not going to do a track by track breakdown or anything actually helpful, but as Kevin Smith might say "Check this out"

Wow, what a great album. From the rocking opener I Love You Suzanne this is one song after another of Lou at his melodic best, with horns, keyboards and backing singers used to great effect. As a celebration of life, it does occasionally hint at the dark side (like violence in Endlessly Jealous, My Friend George and loneliness in What Becomes A Legend Most) but the overall impression is one of finding magic in everyday experiences. My favourite tracks are Doing The Things … with its glorious girl chorus and the almost ethereal, breezy High In The City (“Don’t wanna talk politics today/Feelin’ pretty witty/Getting’ high off of the city …” and that just about sums up the mood of the album.

By Jervis VINE VOICE on 5 Aug. 2006

Occasionally inspiring and never less than solid New Sensations shows Lou coming to terms with modern technology far more effectively than many of his contemporaries. The mid eighties was a strange time in music because traditional instrumentation/recording methods seemed so deeply unfashionable even the musical greats felt it was necessary to compromise their sound simply to be heard.

Lou is largely successful here, particularly with the title track 'New Sensations'. His use of a drum machine in addition to band member Fernando Saunders highly effective bass makes for a Lou classic. 'I Love You Suzanne' is also highly effective - its rock 'n' roll spirit proving a great deal of fun.

Many of the songs lyrics (in particularly the chorus's) do sound a little repetitive especially 'Down At The Arcade' and 'My Red Joystick' but these songs do reveal themselves to be rather addictive on repeated listens.

New Sensations is one of Lou's most commercial albums (and poppiest) and that's by no means a bad thing on this occasion.

Im not saying its his best but for me its my favourite.I suppose it depends what you expect from a Lou Reed album. Ive always been more drawn to his more melodic side (going back to the V.U)then his more experimental work,consequently TRANSFORMER to me was his ultimate accessible masterpiece,with the fusion of lyrics to great melodies and catchy hooks.NEW SENSATIONS follows the same tradition it might not be his deepest work but its certainly his most catchiest & happiest with Reeds distinct vocals sweetened by the effective use of backup vocals throughout. Though the 80s production slightly dates things if you're into energetic catchy rousing songs full of joy and humour you wont be disappointed.The slower numbers are very strong melodically (WHAT BECOMES OF A LEGEND../TAKE ME TO THE SUN)While all the tracks have something to recommend them my personal favs are TURN TO ME/NEW SENSATIONS/ DOING THE THINGS../MY FRIEND GEORGE.Its a fine album dont be put off by other reviews Like TRANSFORMER it showcases brilliantly the melodic side of Lou Reeds talent

there's some great songs: "i love you suzanne", "turn to me", "new sensations" , "my friend george" and a few others. there are also some really bad tracks like "my red joy stick" and "down at the arcade". i'd say buy it if you like lou reed but if your a newbie get the "new york" album or "coney island baby".
