This music's playing in my head so loud right now it helps me think. A younger guy's interest in Lou Reed brought me back to this album and I'm glad it did. This album rocks so hard I had to contact Kyle who's in Portland trying to play rock and roll to tell him, listen right awy, if he really wanted to play, especially to the last track, "Rock and Roll".
Even the introduction is terrific. Every artist should have such an introduction, the band working through a short concerto of chunky chords until the audience applause indicates the front man is taking the stage. "Sweet Jane", "White Light/White Heat", these are the profane classics of the genre, presented fresh. The bonus tracks don't add a whole lot to the original line-up, except for that chick's place with the bathroom down the hall, but track 7, "Rock and Roll", holy moley! We can all rock to that New York station, and it's all right. It is still all right.
Listeners are cautioned that serious depictions of drug use present mature material.

Lou, after the failure or the Berlin Album came out with his greatest album ever,with the twin guitars of Dick Wagner (the frost,ursa major)and Steve Hunter( The Detroit Wheels)and one of the tightest rythum sections around blew his fans away with the power and energy of the the Animal tour.The Rock ans Roll Animal Band later ended as Alice Coopers Band. With Dick Wagner Co-writeing many of Alices biggest hits. This Album is a must for everyone music collection...Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
