Underrated album. Maybe because of a sometimes overly produced sound with much backing vocals and horns. And one weak tune, Animal Language, which has got a prominent placement as second track side one. But the record really grows on you and has stood the time test well. Personal favourites: Billy, a fine short story with acoustic music added, guitar and saxophone. Kill Your Sons, Ride Sally Ride and title track are Reed classics. And N.Y. Stars has a sound to it, that points towards Bowies Station To Station later in the same decade.

Maybe I'm just weird but I have always loved this record. I can sense the emotion and feeling of the songs. The title track is a rock-n-roll classic if ever there was...

Common opinion holds that this is a weak album, one of Lou's worst. On the contrary - I think it has three of his all-time best songs on it - Kill Your Sons, the title song and Ennui - a truly wonderful ballad with tremendous lyrics. Sure - on some of the tracks Lou sounds like he can't be bothered but get hold of it for those three tracks, its worth it.
