    Haven't gone through a Velvet Underground or Lou Reed phase yet in my life, but just listened to New Sensations album for the first time, lou and behold i'm a fan. Kind of a weird album to get kick started with, but would appreciate some recommendations of underrated Lou Reed/ Velvet Underground albums.

    I absolutely love a live album he did called Take No Prisoners. It’s pure sass from a Lou that sounds as overjoyed to be playing and pissed off at the whole affair in equal measures. @Yer Ol' Uncle D is a Lou master and will I’m sure, set you in the right direction.

    Welcome to the Lou party. We've been waiting for you. And congrats on discovering New Sensations. That's a pretty underappreciated record from Lou's solid return to form in the 80's.

    I can make a few suggestions. With that said, Lou has such an expansive career he's one of those artists that is highly enjoyed working through his discography chronologically. That way you get the full experience regarding his evolution as an artist.

    As far as solo work, my three essential Lou records are Rock 'N Roll Animal, The Blue Mask, and New York. Each of these is from a different decade and feature Lou's three best bands. I consider them damn near flawless records.

    If you want to get a broader overview I'd recommend these as well as the 3 above -

    Velvet Underground - VU with Nico
    Velvet Underground - Loaded
    Lou Reed - Transformer
    Lou Reed - Live

    Lou Reed - Berlin
    Lou Reed - Street Hassle
    Lou Reed - Live In Italy
    Lou Reed/John Cale - Songs For Drella
    Lou Reed - Ecstacy

    Have fun, man. In my book Lou is one of the most important artists in rock and roll. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't envious of you getting to discover all this great music for the first time. Wish I could go back and relive that excitement again.

    This is fantastic! Thank you, looks like I will be plenty busy this weekend. Love diving into a "new" artist and am so glad this time it's someone so cherished by many others.

    Certainly not new, but I've been returning to The Dirtbombs' cover of Elliott Smith's unreleased track 'Brand New Game' quite a bit in recent weeks. I really wish we could get an official release of the original at some point. I've heard it, and, honestly, I prefer this rocking cover, but I'd still like to have a clean copy of Elliott's version.

    I know this is kind of old, but I just found this and it is definitely is getting my hyped for the new album.

    When was last time you listened to Whalebones by Man Man?
    It's probably time to do that right now.



    If that's too mellow for you check this out...

    Side two of “The Kingsmen in person” is insane.
