5.0 out of 5 stars Most Accessible Lou Reed Album June 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
Like many of the reviewers, I have owned New Sensations since it was first released and it has stood the test of time...and then some. Not my favorite Lou Reed (or Velvets) album, but probably the one I listen to most often when I need a good laugh or want to feel uplifted (not many Reed albums can claim the latter). My Red Joystick and Turn to Me are hilarious and catchy (ditto the comment on the guitar intro on Turn to Me) and New Sensations, Doin the Things That We Want To and Fly Into the Sun are introspective masterpieces. It's difficult to articulate how connected you feel when you listen to these songs, especially since I have not had the life and experiences of Lou, but that's the beauty of the music, I suppose. It's amazing how he can handle topics ranging from aging, to nuclear holocaust, and the angst of divorce/separation with such aplomb. I think I'll be listening to this album until "my teeth are ground down to the bone, and there's nothing between my legs." Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Like a good wine.... May 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album when it came out, and when I first put it on (age 14) it sounded kinda odd, opening with the very commercial sounding 'I love you Suzanne'. But it quickly became one of my favourites and I sort of grew up with it. Listening to it again now it still sounds surprisingly good. Although released in the mid-80s it actually doesn't sound too dated. A great collection of songs, go buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Genius April 1 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I first listened to this album in 1986 and loved My Friend George. Having listened to it recently the allure has not faded and i particularly like Turn to Me and Doin The Things That We Want To (My adopted anthem for this year). Crank up both songs, and listen out for the first guitar solo on Turn to Me, 20 seconds of magic. This guy gets no airplay in Australia and that puzzles me as i think this album is a classic!

5.0 out of 5 stars My One & Only Favorite From Lou Reed Feb. 21 2003
Format:Audio CD
First, let me say that I am not a huge Lou Reed fan by any means. Sure, like most of America listening to U.S. rock on the radio, I've heard a few of his songs on the airwaves. But, I've never owned a single cassette, record, 8-track or compact disc of anything of Reed's... except this one, "New Sensations". His songs from the 1970's never grabbed me the way "I Love You, Suzanne" did in 1984. I wore this piece of vinyl out that summer and I spent years looking for it on disc. I finally ordered it a few years ago from Amazon.com. Why-oh-why is this STILL out of print in the USA? As for the actual songs... very little filler here as I'd have to say that 8 of the 11 songs are top notch. My favorites: "I Love You, Suzanne" and "Red Joystick". "Turn To Me" and "Endlessly Jealous" are ear grabbing melodies as well. Worth the purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have For Any Lou Reed Fan! Jan. 12 2003
Format:Audio CD
Yet another Lou Reed Classic! By far Lou's most uplifting album, there is not a single bad track anywhere on this album. It's not quite as lyrically genious as alot of Lou's albums but it still has it great lyrical moments, of course what Lou album dosent? Not Quite as good as Berlin, New York, Set the twilight Reeling, and Transformer but it's certainly in his top 7 or 8 albums. If you like Lou Reed You'll Like this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this CD May 11 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this in 1984, when it was first released, on cassette. I wore it out and bought at least two more over the years, before I found it on CD. Eighteen years later, it's still one of my favorites. My Red Joystick, Turn To Me, and New Sensations (the title track) make me laugh out loud. This work is vignettes of life, from a sometimes twisted perspective, set to very catchy tunes. I listen to this one from start to finish.

2.0 out of 5 stars Confession of a Former Fan Nov. 6 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'll admit it. I used to like Lou Reed. Even today, I think that "Rock and Roll Animal" is a pretty good album (CD). I bought this recording 15 years ago. I wanted to like it. I did like it. A couple tunes are - at the mo - a bit catchy. BUT, this album does not wear well. It's simplistic. The idea of a 40+ pop star singing about playing video games is just dumb. What is really annoying about this recording, though, is the song "Fly Into the Sun." In this tune, Lou confesses that he has no fear of nuclear war and welcomes the chance to meet his maker. It's the swan song of a potentially talented musician who basically sold out, gave up, and proclaims his own death wish. Lou, if you're reading this, GROW UP!
