Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
It's been said that the glitter-rock style that propelled David Bowie to superstardom was largely a refinement of the Stooges' mad primitivism and the Velvet Underground's cool, avant-pop nihilism. When Velvets frontman Lou Reed began work on his first solo album, Bowie and his guitarist, Mick Ronson, returned the favor, producing Reed's own take on the glam movement that he helped spawn. Arguably Reed's best solo effort, Transformer is a nigh-ageless rock album. The record also gave Reed his first hit with "Walk on the Wild Side," a catchy tale of street-life desperation based largely on his days as part of Andy Warhol's Factory. Knee-deep with great songs, Transformer also boasts the driving opener "Vicious" and wonderfully arranged ballads such as "Perfect Day" and "Satellite of Love." Through 80 minutes of interview footage with Reed and engineer Ken Scott, this disc explores the construction of a landmark of both glam and rock.
