Lou Reed - Metal Machine Music



 
By myrkursoli

Artist: Lou Reed
Album: Metal Machine Music
Released: 1975
Genre
: Noise




July, 1975, Lou Reed responded to his glam rock success with a commercial failure, a double album of electronically generated audio feedback, Metal Machine Music. A rare proto-noise “musical” experience consisting of guitars playing by themselves, conducted by Reed’s distorted/sonic feedback illusions. What was all about then? Critics interpreted it as a gesture of contempt, an attempt to break his contract with RCA or to alienate his less sophisticated fans. But Reed claimed that the album was a genuine artistic effort, dubbing himself at that time “inventor” of heavy metal music! In fact, Reed was following the works of Beethoven, Xenakis and Ernest Coleman’s free-jazz. Today the record is seen as an early form of ambient music and a defining pillar of the no-wave, noise and industrial music movements, having a huge impact on the works of Sonic Youth, NIN, Merzbow, TV On The Radio. Lester Bangs called it genius and that above all, this was the greatest album ever made…

Is this album rare or anything?

sorry if it is a dumb question, I never see it in stores.
