The Velvet Underground VINYL



Released in 1969 to an almost total lack of critical acclaim or consumer interest, the Velvet Underground’s third album may well be the finest of the band’s career. Without the sonic terrorism of The Velvet Underground & Nico and White Light/White Heat or indeed the ill-conceived commercial concessions that compromised Loaded, the album’s songs stand on their own merit. “What Goes On” and “Beginning to See the Light” may be the finest flat-out rockers in the band’s catalogue, while “Pale Blue Eyes”, “Jesus”, and “Candy Says” are some of the most delicately gorgeous songs Lou Reed has ever penned. There’s no evidence here of any of the psychedelic effects and hippie sloganeering that marked many late 1960s rock releases, which is perhaps why the record still holds up so well today.
