This is a brilliant and overlooked album, not just in the
history of Lou Reed's or John Cale's work, but
much more widely. This is the finest example I
know of what is effectively an operatic elegy, to
Andy Warhol and his world, full of great pathos,
cultural insight, and inspired, at times ecstatically so,
great music / song / writing / lyrics.
Listen to it.
Rock music provocateur Lou Reed passed away at age 71. Best known for his work with the proto-punk band The Velvet Underground, Reed supplied tough, gritty lyrics while John Cale offered up a dissonant musical journey unlike any heard at the time. Reed and Cale went on to make some transcendent solo albums as well, but my favorite collaboration of theirs will always be Songs For Drella.
