Man I used to love that album when it came out. I still like it now, but it feels so closely tied to that time in my life so it's a weird listen. I'll definitely return to it when (hopefully) the band gets back together.
Sadly, many parts are uninteresting, especially as a whole album. Shame because I really like some parts.
I would say:
Lou Reed's Magic & Loss, Ecstacy, and Berlin, minus the shitty songs that are on each album.
