I don't agree with the reviewer! I enjoy this album as much as I did in 1973 or 1974, when I first heard it. The intro to Sweet Jane is by far one of the best examples of rock and roll I've ever heard. I know plenty of folks who feel the same way. I'm a lot older and ... well older, but I still want to jump up and play air-guitar on this one. Lou Reed is an acquired taste that a lot of people just don't acquire. But if you like him, this is a great example of one part of the musical journey this crazed artist has been on.
DON'T pass it by because of the opinion of some Lester Bangs type.
