As a fan, I rate this higher than your average listener probably would. For me it's essential although VU, their other compilation of non-album tracks, is much more so. I can understand why someone might accuse the Velvet's instrumentation of being rudimentary or why they might dislike Lou Reed's occasionally (and gleefully) overextended voice. But the Velvet Underground is loved for being raw, unflinchingly real, positively fearless and sometimes even darkly humorous. Lou Reed wrote about whatever he wanted including the drug life and other subjects that garanteed alienation from the mainstream of the 60s. Today, the world has finally caught up with them and they've even been inducted into the Rock n Roll hall of fame.
"We're Gonna Have A Real Good Time Together" - a perfect opener, this one is very upbeat and straight to the point. Spirited strumming, hand claps and "Na, na, nas" all add to the fun. *****
"I'm Gonna Move Right In" - a laid-back and groovy shuffle, this instrumental track showcases Sterling Morrison's ample improvisational skills. Someone pointed out to my initial surprize that VU were occasionally were occasionally similar to their perceived musical opposites The Grateful Dead. I dare say it's true, the main justification for the comparison being Mr. Morrison's playing. *****
"Hey Mr. Rain (version 1)" - If New York City art-punks were prone to rain dancing during times of draught, this is what they might play: a strange loping tune with trippy viola from original Velvet John Cale. ***1/2
"Ride Into The Sun" - This track is simplicity itself and exquisitely pretty. Quite different from the song it would later become with vocals by Doug Yule who became Cale's replacement.

2.0 out of 5 stars Forgettable Dec 29 2002
Format:Audio CD
late era vault tapes from one of rock's most seminal bands. A few early outtakes have some Cale on them, but the songs are so lame, who cares? Annoying version one of "Hey Mr. Rain" ruins the marginally better version two, "Real Good Time Together" isn't any better here than it is on Reed's solo album, and you can do without the original "Rock and Roll" that's here too. "Ferryboat Bill" is of some amusement, but one nugget out of nine? If you have to have unreleased Velvets, "VU" is the album to buy, in fact its a must have. Novices, don't start here-fans, buy something influenced by the Velvets instead.

4.0 out of 5 stars An underrated set of essential songs for VU fans Jan. 10 2002
Format:Audio CD
ANOTHER VIEW is the sequel to VU, the first set of previously unreleased songs by the influential New York group. While not as consistently strong as VU, some of the pieces here, like both versions of the vague, unsettling "Hey Mr. Rain" and the silly "Ferryboat Bill" are undeniably essential to a Velvet Underground fan's collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars coney island high Dec 15 2001
By Ol' Boy
Format:Audio CD
i need to hear "coney island steeplechase"!!! "come on and take a ride with me on the coney island steeple..." the song has been running through my mind for months when i'm with my kids or when we're at coney island, i guess that's folk music, it's funny, the banana album is the liminal album for me, the one i grew up listening to with my friends, whose songs we all covered, the songs have incredible resonance, ach, sentimental melodies, but what i'm saying is this: the velvet songs we love to sing are the ditties like "i'm sticking with you...," "sweet jane," or "if you close the door...", all right, it's okay, you can be blown away by "severin, severin, speaks so slightly..." but the best of the lullabies is on this album (and my albums are still at my parents, "away from the big cd...")!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth having Jan. 26 2001

Even VU fans write this one off, but I think it's interesting throughout, even if it's not all groundbreaking. The instrumental "Ride Into the Sun" is amazing, the best version (and this is the only CD it's available on). The version of "Rock and Roll" is not as important as the released version, but it's superior in some ways. I would certainly recommend all their official albums before this, but if you've got it all, get it for sure.

3.0 out of 5 stars Another View is Good, but Only For Fans! April 27 2000
Format:Audio CD
Most Velvet fans want all their recordings. I know I do. In order to do this, you must buy all four studio albums, including the Fully Loaded version of Loaded, Peel Slowly and See ( Box Set ),Live With Lou Reed Vol. 1 and 2, Live at Max's Kansas City, Live 1993, VU, and this CD, Another View. Of all the others named, this album is the least essential. All the songs are good, but not great like almost everything else the velvets did. If you are a big fan and/or a completist, this album is essential.
