What is the most underrated album of all time and why is it Street Hassle?

>the first album ever recorded in binaural
>concept album about the most influential man in rock music becoming a self parody
>features an 11 minute part spoken word centerpiece that is simultaneously the best rock opera and the best poem of all time
>the album that without a doubt established lou reed as the voice of new york
>mostly live recordings, the best performances of lou's career
>starts with lou calling himself a faggot junkie and calling sweet jane a shit song
>has a song about wanting to be black and having a 9 inch dick
>real good time together is proto shoegaze for the first 2 minutes and then launches into the most energetic moment on the album
>has a bruce springsteen feature
>shows lou reed at his most vulnerable
>has the best album art of any album ever

why the FUCK is this so overlooked
>>
Lou Reed is so cool

lou reed also pretty much invented noise rock on metal machine music and was part of the velvet underground
Its too bad he had to die after making that awful lulu album.
Although bowie said he liked lulu and it was 2deep4u and will be understood in the future
>>
>has a song about wanting to be black and having a 9 inch dick

wew lad, that was embarassing as fuck. Even if it's ''self parody''
>>
>>61996880
Bowie said that to Laurie (Lou's widow) at Lou's posthumous Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame induction. Going just by context I think it's more likely he was just being kind than being serious.
>>
>>61996625
Pretty accurate post desu. I'm impressed.
>>
>>61996925
In the live version on Take No Prisoners he says nigga. It's fucking hilarious. Especially since he has black backing vocalists.
>>
>>61996625
>most influential man in rock music
kek
Lou Reed is pretty hack core
>>
>>61996625
>has the best album art of any album ever
You can't even try to argue this
>>
>>61996962
He might have been a hack but it's undeniable that he had a huge influence. Literally like over half of all the critically acclaimed rock bands I can think of are probably indebted to him to some extent.
>>

Lulu is good you jerk-ass

prove it

A lot of his solo work is pretty overlooked. I like the stuff from the early 80s especially.

Lou really lets it all out on this one.

There's a bit of dissonance with Reed for me. Like he has this image of being this super cool new york street poet. But then he makes super fucking corny sounding music.
>>
>>61997245
this is also hilariously cheesy and 80s but awesome

strangely dark too. "i'm in prison most of the day"

Lou Reed is the most overrated musician of all time
>>
>>61996625
bought this on vinyl and have never listened to it. maybe i will, thanks anon
>>
>>61996928
I think he legit liked the idea of the album, maybe not all of its results.
>>
>>61996625
I would make out with the lou in this picture
>>
>>61997242
Listen to it
>>
>>61997515
Most normies haven't heard of him
>>
>>62000615
I don't know about that. Sure people who don't care about music at all only really know what's on the radio and a select few indie and classic rock bands. But I think basically anyone who has taken an interest in music has at least heard the guys name. His death was pretty high profile he was all over the news and I heard Walk On The Wild Side all over the place for a couple of days.
>>
>>62000608
ok its metallica riffs dragged out for 20 minutes while lou does some nice poetry and occasionally hetfeild comes in with his gross ass voice and yells some stupid shit
>>
>she was the first girl in her neighbourhood
>to get raped in tompkins square...real good!

what did he mean by this /mu/?

The title track is incredible

binaural is garbage. New york sucks.

>A woman's love can lift you up, and women can inspire.

what he mean by this /mu/?

It's literally too complex to not be underrated
>>
>I would cut my legs and tits off
>When I think of Boris Karloff and Kinski

What did he mean by this /mu/?
>>
>>62001420
What do you mean by that? Musically or in the context of his career? A lot of highly acclaimed albums are pretty complex.
>>
>>62001444
Nice trips

>Herpes, AIDS, the Middle East at full throttle
>better check that sausage, before you put it in the waffle

>You have a hairy minded pink bare bear

what did he mean by this /mu/?

Was Lou Reed like the original Lil B? His work with the Velvets was alright but his solo career was fucking garbage and I don't understand all the praise he got. He couldn't play any instruments, he couldn't write songs, he couldn't sing at all, and his lyrics were cringeworthy as fuck. He even had guys like Bowie lauding him as a genius the way that Asap Rocky tries to carry Lil B under his wing these days.

>So I tried to think of something that made me sick

>Feel like a possum in every way
>Possum whiskers, possum face
>Possum breath and a possum taste

what did he mean by this /mu/?
>>
>>61996625
the title track is one of the best things he ever did, but apart from that and We're Gonna Have A Real Good TIme Together it's just not a very good album
>>
nobody even knew who this guy was before he died
>>
>>62002172
Same with bowie, these guys was totally underground and you were the only peope who had ever heard of him.
>>
>>62001518
Is this already the dumbest statement of 2016?
>>
Friendly reminder that David Bowie wasn't actually gay and that he literally appropriated gay culture as a marketing tool.

In the late 60s Bowie used sex as a tool to try and get signed by rich homosexuals, and throughout the 70s he amended his original claim that he was gay to being only bisexual. All the while he was married to a woman and having high profile affairs with British actresses while Lou Reed had been sent to psych wards for jacking off to gay porn everyday and was dating a 6 foot 5 peruvian transexual.

Bowie admitted later in his career that his bisexuality was "more of a product of the times than actual biology".

Why does he never get shit for this?

1. Street Hassle
