iTunes Review

Between its reimagining of blues drone, avant-garde distortion, and doo-wop transcendence into a blueprint for all things punk, goth, and shoegaze, The Velvet Underground’s banana-adorned debut invented the future—way back in 1967.

Moe Tucker’s drumming is as deadpan as Lou Reed’s vocals, John Cale’s electric viola is straight-up haunting, and Nico, on “All Tomorrow’s Parties” and “Femme Fatale,” plays the ice queen to end all ice queens.

Few rock groups can claim to have broken so much new territory, and maintain such consistent brilliance on record, as the Velvet Underground during their brief lifespan. It was the group's lot to be ahead of, or at least out of step with, their time. The mid- to late '60s was an era of explosive growth and experimentation in rock, but the Velvets' innovations -- which blended the energy of rock with the sonic adventurism of the avant-garde, and introduced a new degree of social realism and sexual...
