I still love Dirty Blvd and Romeo Had Juliette the most on this album. They sound to me like latter day versions of the "So and So Says" songs the Velvets did, portraits of people on the outside trying to get in. They're like musical short stories.

I've never understood why Reed got all conservative in his lyrics around this time. "Video Violence" is the song of a cranky old man decrying how the world around him sucks so much.

This was my first Lou Reed album, and I played the shit of it in 1984, trying desperately to distill that Lou Reed cool into myself. I failed, for all kinds of reasons, but this album still brings back some sentimental feelings in the way that music that hit you at a certain time will inevitably bring back certain thoughts or times. This is, honestly, a pretty terrible album. Listening to it recently I was thinking about the fact that there is some meat on these slimy bones - "Endlessly Jealous" is a typically introspective sort of Reed self-examination, and "New Sensations" is almost like a diary song, filled with deep self-reflection, that wonderful ride out to the Delaware gap, where sometimes he got lost and had to check a map , and the line that stops me cold whenever I hear it, "Two years ago today I was arrested on Christmas Eve."

I've always thought that "Turn to Me" was a joke, a take-off on those cheesy pop songs about how the singer will love a girl forever, no matter what - when they both know damn well that he's lying so he can have sex with her.

Yeah, this album is mostly terrible (for me the low point is "What Becomes a Legend Most", a slimy remake of "A New Age") but

Is it a cover  if you do a different version of your own song? I've always wondered about that around Dylan's ALL ALONG THE WATCHTOWER after Hendrix made the song his

This is the app that I work on. Great review of it in the Press,

Hello G+! I always forget about you but you are so much nicer and kinder than Facebook, and you never cut me off mid-sentence like twitter.

Ugh, felt sick all weekend but I seem to be doing better now. At least I'm keeping my soup down.
