Loaded: Crystal Clear Vinyl LP0603497838257
Release Date: 27th January
I feel like in 2023 we are all now in safe space where we can all happily admit and without judgement admit that 'Loaded' is the best Velvet Underground record, at the very least the most listenable. So much swagger and in its own way as influential in different ways from the more avant-garde and raw records that came before.
It's going in the MASTERPIECE section, mate.
Lou Reed's last album with the Velvet Underground has remained a reliable fixture on Rolling Stone's 500 best albums of all time, and others. Earning a 10/10 from Pitchfork and top accolades from Q, Spin, Uncut, AllMusic, Christgau's Record Guide, and others, this album is a fan favorite featuring hit singles "Sweet Jane" and "Rock & Roll."
