That's what I said!

And here's the track, if you want it. It was fairly hard to find, so I thought I'd sendspace it for anyone who wants it:

I don't like it because I think the experimental side of it overwhelms the musical side. The absence of Cale following this record makes the VU&Nico album while not the best they could have been, the best they were.
But it stripped down their sound even more, Sister Ray has what, one chord change in 17 minutes? They took the ideas on their debut and experimented with them further, I can understand not liking it, but I don't see how you can say something like Sister Ray doesn't represent a step forward. It's even less complicated than their debut, but isn't that their goal? The ultimate stripped down sound? I don't think the experimental edge pushed aside the music, White Light/White Heat is a great tune and that riff in Sister Ray...

I don't think they had a goal of "stripped down sound." Some of their music is stripped down, other compositions are very lush. I don't think they had much of a goal outside of making good music, whatever they felt good was at the time.

I believe Lou Reed once said something along the lines of 'One chord, that's good, two, that's pushing it, but three?'.
