Even though his (impossibly high) peak creative era is behind him, I find this really interesting. Eno has said The Velvet Underground is his favorite album of all time, and that he doesn't even own a copy for fear of getting overfamiliar with it.

I feel like every VU album is my favorite, but for different reasons.

It's my favorite song on that album after "The Murder Mystery." I think. It's a great song, often overlooked. Like "Murder Mystery" it feels like it could fit on one of the first two albums, which kinda sets it apart from the more poppy VU material in my opinion.

Gotta love a good Lou Reed slow burner. Few things in life are as awesome as an LRSB.

I get this. I'm always trying not to desensitize myself to my favorite music, so I try not to listen to the same album too much. But I find that if you take breaks that are too lengthy, the music sometimes sounds only relevant to the past, and becomes almost irrevocably connected to another time.

It's happened to me with a lot of albums. Neutral Milk Hotel and Broken Social Scene NEVER get play in my car anymore. Unless I'm just feeling super masochistic and want to rip the stitches on some old wounds.

Reed's solo on "I'm Set Free" is some of the most heartbreakingly gorgeous music he ever played, the flipside to (and as powerful, though not as groundbreaking as) "I Heard Her Call My Name". You haven't really heard it until you give the "closet mix" version a spin, by the way. I'm even willing to forgive Brian for a lot of the turdness he's done with U2 if he tackles this one in an enthralling way.
