The Velvet Underground by The Velvet Underground

Originally released in 1969, the Velvet Underground’s self-titled third album famously departed from the band’s first two LPs. Wales own John Cale was replaced with Doug Yule, and the record was a stylistic shift, demonstrating a warmer, more optimistic side to VU. I mean, how sweet is 'Pale Blue Eyes'?

10/10 Penrith Steve 12th February 2015

This has always been my favourite Velvet Underground album. It was the first one I heard and like "Surfer Rosa" by the Pixies which I heard around a similar time, it was a "road to Damascus" style revelation. It's the one with "Pale Blue Eyes" on it. It's the one with "What Goes On" on it. It sounds soft and gentle in places whilst being chaotic in others. And it has "After Hours" on it. The only downside I can think of is that it doesn't have John Cale on it. I can't think of this album as anything other than an absolute classic.
