A truly fantastic album. I agree with the previous comments, you could imagine some of these tracks being played very regularly on the radio. It is clear that John Cale's genius has not departed. Personally I can't understand why his earlier albums are considered greater. This might be different, but no lesser. Actually, I prefer this one, and some even more recent things like MFANS, to the earlier albums of his (even if they too are great). He is just as relevant in this time as he was in his younger days. Check it out!!!
Oh, and P.S. Will someone please release it on vinyl!

Fucking masterpiece, as good as anything Cale has ever made ;o) Sexy, vitriolic, dark, menacing, funky, and unique.

It's fair to say that this release garnered little gushing praise on its initial release. To a certain extent this reflects the curse of the legend; Cale will always be judged against his past solo work by some, his legend (and that chicken) by others or as a member of the VU.

Black Acetate, judged on its own merits is well worthy of consideration. Neither pushing back boundaries like the VU or Dream Syndicate recordings or destined to make as many '100 greatest' lists as Paris 1919, the album demonstrates Cale's take on the 'rock' album. In an ideal world songs like Outta The Bag' and 'Perfect' would gain regular radio play, well sung, catchy and, at times, almost spooky. In the 'reality world' however it's probably the curse of such music to be tagged as minor work of living legend.
