And all your two-bit friends
have gone and ripped you off
They're talking behind your back saying, man
you're never going to be no human being
And you start thinking again
'bout all those things that you've done
And who it was and what it was
and all the different things you made every different scene

Ahhh, but remember that the city is a funny place
Something like a circus or a sewer
And just remember different people have peculiar tastes
and the -

- Glory of love, the glory of love
the glory of love, might see you through
yeah, but now, now
Glory of love, the glory of love.

This album is the greatest ever made by Lou Reed.
Here you can hear that this guy is not only someone who can make (sometimes beautiful) noise, but has great musical talents.
The album forms an unity, the tracks have something in common.
Also his sense of (sometimes morbid) humour can be heard.

It's hard to objectively review a CD (or should I say album) that I had so much attachment to in college. Being a big Lou Reed fan then, this album to me was clearly on par with Berlin and Transformer as soon as I heard it, yet it is so different than both of those efforts.
Definitely Reed's most "accesible" album, this is the one to own if you are not familiar with him. His vocals seem to meld perfectly with the very economic instrumentations - the songs give the illusion of being very "acoustic" even though there is still a healthy dose of electric guitar present (think Mark Knopfler).
Emotionally a 5-star CD, but realistically not all the songs are up to that level. I suppose 25 years has done something to musical tastes - there aren't as many kicks in "Kicks", for example (a song about murdering for the thrill of it), and actually, the title track (Coney Island Baby) does sound a bit sappy now, as pretty as it is. "Ooohh Baby" is a throw-away, and "Nobody's Business" is good, but not great. The rest of the cuts ARE great (still today!), easily worth the price of the CD.

By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Oct. 27 2002
Format: Audio CD
This is probably Reed's most atypical solo album and at first sounds lightweight and subdued, laking the great moments, drama and exciting highlights of his best work. Hard to appreciate immediately, repeated listens reveal Coney Island Baby's lyrical depth and melodic beauty. My favorites include the love song She's My Best Friend, the streetwise Charley's Girl and the sensitive narrative of the title track. Not his greatest album, but valuable as a showcase of Reed's human side in its warmth and simplicity.

It's interesting to note that Coney Island Baby came out in the fall of 1975, just months after Metal Machine Music.... Coney Island Baby is perhaps Lou's finest solo album along with the fantastic Street Hassle. All the tracks on this album are fantastic, no weak cuts anywhere. Crazy Feeling starts it off with a bang, just a story about a guy lookin for love, be it a beautiful girl or be it a transvestite, in good old NYC.... This particular cut of She's My Best Friend is outstanding; it definately beats the old VU version. Kicks is one of those Reed ballads in the tradition of Heroin and Street Hassle. Kicks has a great beat, and even better lyrics. I enjoy listening about a hitman who murders as a means of getting his kicks, especially when its in a swanky restaurant. This is definately one of the best Reed songs of all time. A Gift is one of those funny songs where Lou pretends to be something he isn't. Oooohhh Baby was a nice doo-wop. Great storyline, about "the kind of girl that everyone's been worried about", a stripper in Times Square. Nobody's Business is a soft song, placed well in between a fast paced song and a love poem. Coney Island Baby is the gem of the album. Pale Blue Eyes was once the Masterpiece; it has since been overthrown by this ballad. The opening was interesting. I liked the way Lou used football as the imagery to describe the meaness one encounters growing up on the mean streets of Brooklyn. "Cause you know somethin' man, you gotta stand up straight or else you're gonna fall. Then you're gonna die." The best part about this track is Lou's "tell it like is" style.Read more ›

Released in 1975, this is my favorite Lou Reed album. I like it better than Transformer from 1972 which contains the hit Walk on the Wildside. This CD has authentic New York City flavor, Lou Reed's first album to do so since his band The Velvet Underground broke up in 1970. I have the CD that RCA issued during the early 1990's and the sound is very good. Lou Reed is all about 1) New York City, and 2) describing the various weird alternative lifestyles and people that existed there thirty years ago. The band on this album is good, especially the guitarist, who plays many classic solos..

It's interesting to think that this is the album that Lou Reed made directly following "Metal Machine Music". He must've really gotten something out of his system, because "Coney Island Baby" still stands as one of his most beautiful achievements. Reed has rarely seemed so genuinely interested in having his voice and spirit heard as clearly as he does on this outstanding statement of renewal.
The songs are all first-rate, from the sublime title cut to the harrowing imagery of "Kicks". Reed's signature lyrical touches abound, even on the sunnier songs, like "Charley's Girl" ("I said 'If I ever see Sharon again/I'm gonna punch her face in'") and "Crazy Feeling" ("And you, you really are a queen/And I know 'cause I've made the same scene"). "She's My Best Friend" - a leftover from the Velvet Underground days - is totally at home on this disc, which Lester Bangs once jokingly referred to as "Lou, the Moonlight and You".
That wouldn't have been such a bad title, actually. The tender side of one of rock's greatest voices is the focus, with Reed delivering possibly his best vocal performance ever. With its spare, understated arrangements that give his musings the necessary room to breathe, "Coney Island Baby" is a real jewel in Reed's catalogue.
