Rock N Roll Animal [Bonus Tracks]

All Music Guide - Mark Deming
In 1974, after the commercial disaster of his album Berlin, Lou Reed needed a hit, and Rock N Roll Animal was a rare display of commercial acumen on his part, just the right album at just the right time. Recorded in concert with Reed's crack road band at the peak of their form, Rock N Roll Animal offered a set of his most anthemic songs most dating from his days with the Velvet Underground in arrangements that presented his lean, effective melodies and street-level lyrics in their most user-friendly form or at least as user friendly as an album with a song called "Heroin" can get. Early-'70s arena rock bombast is often the order of the day, but guitarists Dick Wagner and ...

Recorded in concert with Reed's crack road band at the peak of their form, Rock N Roll Animal offered a set of his most anthemic songs most dating from his days with the Velvet Underground in arrangements that presented his lean, effective melodies and street-level lyrics in their most user-friendly form or at least as user friendly as an album with a song called "Heroin" can get. Early-'70s arena rock bombast is often the order of the day, but guitarists Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter use their six-string muscle to lift these songs up, not weigh them down, and with Reed's passionate but controlled vocals riding over the top, "Sweet Jane," "White Light/White Heat," and "Rock 'n' Roll" finally sound like the radio hits they always should have been. Reed would rarely sound this commercial again, but Rock N Roll Animal proves he could please a crowd when he had to. [The revised CD reissue of Rock N Roll Animal released in 2000 offers markedly better sound than the album's initial release, along with two bonus cuts that give a better idea of how this band approached the material from Berlin on-stage, as well as an amusing moment of Reed verbally sparring with a heckler.]

    Listen Right Away

    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.

    The Best Twin Guitar Playing sense Claptin,D. Allman

    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...
