What do you do after creating 4 sides of minimal and cacaphonous noise? Why not make its mellow anthithesis. Six tracks of fairly lightweight but entertaining AOR and two superior tracks of Reed close to his best. Kicks is a dark one with a backing track of midnight party chatter and lyrics about how stabbing someone is better than sex, all done in Lou's best throwaway style. Classic Reed.
The title track, on the other hand, is simply one his best ever songs. I've listened to it hundreds of times and still get something new from it every time. It's structure is sublime, not verse/chorus or anything approximating that. It's a kind of linear and literary look-back to high-school days where he wanted to 'play football for the coach'. Kind of hard to believe,but on the other hand, why not? Lou sounds so sincere here- it's the dyametric opposite of Kicks that's for sure.

I like the whole album - the other six tracks are sort-of fluffy and a bit cheeky. Very lightweight like I said - but coming after Metal Machine Music.... phew, what a carve up!

Coney Island Baby is an amazing album. It is accessible and fun while keeping that certain tough vibe that Lou Reed cannot help but give off. Dont be fooled by the cover image,
