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!
