Pitchfork

The most dangerous record of 1967 has been absorbed into the establishment rock canon.

AllMusic

Few rock albums are as important as The Velvet Underground & Nico, and fewer still have lost so little of their power to surprise and intrigue more 50 years after first hitting the racks.

Rolling Stone

All four of the band's original studio albums are musts, but The Velvet Underground and Nico is the mustest.

Mojo
While the Velvets would quickly resent Andy Warhol for foisting Nico on them, it's impossible to imagine the band's epochal debut without the extra chill, shadow and unAmerican otherness she brought to it.

This sh*t came out in the 60's? What the f***? By far the most ahead of it's time album I have ever heard.

(original score 88)
Edit: I keep coming back to this album. It is just such a flawless and beautiful project. I can't believe how many ideas it explores and perfects. It is a gorgeous blend of rock, folk, noise, and just all out weirdness.

Fav Tracks: Venus In Furs, Sunday Morning, Heroine, All Tommorow's Parties, I'm Waiting For My Man, Run Run Run

Least Fav: European Son... I mean if ... read more

It is still pretty unbeliavable that this album came in 1967. An absolute work of genius
