Chelsea Girl by Nico

This is the first Nico solo album and a long long way away from the inspired but terrifying avant churn of albums like Desertshore. Here she is in full on folk mode and with covers of songs by the likes of Lou Reed, Jackson Browne and Tim Hardin this is a lovely pastoral work of art that stands on it's own as her one moment of real conventional music making.

10/10 Jack 1st March 2018

Nico is still mostly remembered for her tambourine-shaking days in the Velvet Underground, though she departed after only one album, and began a long and excellent career as a solo singer. And her first solo album, "Chelsea Girl," is an excellent example of Nico's dark, heavy, haunting material. Her voice has a kind of trembly, brooding, gothic beauty, and it perfectly suits the exceptionally sad songs that she tended to sing. No goofy I-love-him-so ballads here, but meditations on life, death and tragedy.
