One would be hard-pressed to name a rock album whose influence has been as broad and pervasive as The Velvet Underground & Nico. Glam, punk, new wave, goth, noise, and nearly every other left-of-center rock movement owes a debt to the VU. While The Velvet Underground had as distinctive a sound as any band, what's most surprising about this album is its diversity. Here, the Velvets dipped their toes into dreamy pop ("Sunday Morning"), tough garage rock ("Waiting for the Man"), stripped-down R&B ("There She Goes Again"), and understated love songs (I'll Be Your Mirror")

Few rock albums are as important as The Velvet Underground & Nico, and fewer still have lost so little of their power to surprise and intrigue more 50 years after first hitting the racks. (AMG)
