Lou Reed - New York Click here to see this CD at!

By Rob O'Connor

New York is arguably Lou Reed's greatest hour as a solo artist. A song-cycle about his beloved city in the '80s, Reed adopts a conversational tone to discuss politics, AIDS, romance, TV preachers, and whatever else is on his mind. While his voice never ranges far, the album kicks into high gear with the twin guitar attack of Reed and Mike Rathke, which takes simple, three-chord rock into a truly transcendent space. "Romeo Had Juliette" cruises like a cab down a bumpy avenue, while "Strawman" curls with rage. Like the city that gives it its name, New York never rests.

"Ranking with Transformer, this album is Lou Reed's best work. In fact, it may be one of the most important albums of its decade. This is Lou Reed writing and performing. in his trademark minimalist style, the most articulate autobiographical work he has done. It is impossible to imagine Reed in any environment other than New York. And in this album he presents New York as only he knows it, with all its glorious filth and its sublime decadence, its superhip arrogance and its heartbreaking vulnerability."
