that album is a piece of shit
anyone saying that its brilliant is a poser
MMM is garbage and everyone knows it.
Most of all, Lou Reed himself.
It's my fave 'screw you' to a label......greater than Steve Miller's 'Circle of Love' album...
musically it sucks.....LR is supposed to be composing meditational music now.....
I wonder if it's ever been used in any kind of government psychological warfare such as the time the feds very loudly played sounds of rabbits getting killed to the Branch Davidians in Waco or when AC/DC was broadcast over loud speakers to pummel the ears of Manuel Noriega during the invasion of Panama.

I remember there was a book that listed the 100 worst albums of all time, and MMM came in at #2, trumped only by "Fun on Stage with Elvis" which I happen to have a perfect copy of.
