A very interesting band, if only for having a very unique style and for their influence. I got their debut album, 'Velvet Underground & Nico' a few weeks ago, and I was expecting to love it, since it gets raving reviews all around the internet. I was only being familiar with the opener, the beautiful 'Sunday Morning', which is without a doubt, the most accessible song here. I hated it at first. Boring, monotonous, repetitive, and all being "topped" by the cold and emotionless voice of the so called german singer Nico. But I've learned from experience that certain albums need some time until you get used to the band's style, so I kept on playing it. 9 listens after, I think it's a good album. 'Heroin', 'Sunday Morning', 'Venus in Furs' and 'All Tomorrow's Parties' are great songs. But still, I wouldn't call it a masterpiece, nor the best album of all-time. I don't even know if it would rank as a 10/10 in my book. How can an album with 'European Son' on it be considered perfect, anyway?
Any other people familiar with the band/the album?
