Top Customer Reviews
The majority of songs are mellow, with soft, sweet guitar riffs, allowing us to focus on Lou's very strong lyrics. There are also five strong rockers: the opener (effectively), "What's Good"; the acoustic "Sword of Damocles"; "Warrior King"; "Gassed and Stoked"; and "Power and Glory Part II." The first two are marked by crisp, pretty definition in the rhythm guitars, smooth strokes, in contrast to the guitars in the others, which have the edge, and a bit of the fuzziness and distortion, often seen in Lou's work. "What's Good" and "Warrior King," the CD's most potent tune, are the two best songs. The softer, mostly slower songs are good too. My only problem is that there are too many of them: six of seven between the opener and "Warrior King."
There is a positive spin to Magic and Loss, witness the album title and the concluding title cut: "There's a bit of magic in everything and then some loss to even things out." Lou sees things both ways, focusing heavily on hardship and death, but also dignity.

Magic And Loss is either Lou Reed's best or worst album depending on your taste ,but I can't listen to it. I owned it on cassette, and I'm not exactly sure where it is now. Read morePublished on Sept. 21 2002 by JOHN SPOKUS
Lou Reed has always been better at tackling deep subjects, such as drug abuse and sexual depravity, than lighter ones. Read morePublished on Dec 8 2001 by Brian D. Rubendall
Nothing sounds or feels like this dark masterpiece. The sheer majesty of the song cycle, all about the deaths of 2 people who were in Lou's Life, is remarkable. Read morePublished on April 1 2001 by David Robinson
Lou recorded this gem after recording two previous ones; NEW YORK and SONGS for DRELLA. Lou has written an epic grieving process after witnessing the death of two of his close... Read morePublished on March 27 2001 by ROBERT M. STJOHN
Never have been a big Lou Reed fan, he was always just so-so in my mind. I came across Magic and Loss while on a Jimmy Scott fix (he does the background vocals for track 3). Read morePublished on Nov. 11 2000
Always regret discovering this gem too late to see the concerts. His biographer stated this was an album that people dutifully kept in their racks but seldom listen to. Read morePublished on Sept. 13 2000 by Gary
Like David Bowie, Lou Reed is a visionary and a pioneer. He doesn't work within any particular style; quite the contrary, he creates "styles. Read morePublished on Aug. 29 2000 by dev1
