Description

Half-Speed Mastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios.
Velvet Underground’s self-titled third album seemed like the debut of a new band. John Cale had left (replaced by Doug Yule) and the group became, for all intents and purposes, Lou Reed’s backup band. The songs actually sounded like rock music and John Cale’s screeching musicality was reworked into songs that featured Sterling Morrison’s most eloquent guitar accompaniment. Reed’s songwriting moved beyond the armed-to-disarm approach of the previous two albums towards a spiritual level of empathy with the human race-a change that wouldn’t go unnoticed. The man who once begged someone to “nullify [his] life” (“Heroin”) was now asking “Jesus” to “help me find my proper place,” and whooping his way through the equally inspiring “Beginning To See The Light.” To this day, every song on The Velvet Underground sounds like a breakthrough.
