7/10 Clinton Staff review, 04 June 2014
I can't ever quite get my head around covers of entire albums. I've never bought one and can't really imagine that I ever will. That said, Hollis Brown make a nice job of covering Velvet Underground's 'Loaded' in its entirity. Its not my favourite era of VU but they nail that strung out laid back sound. Beautifully recorded with a guitar in each ear strumming away and vocals that are near enough to Lou but distinct enough to not be an impersonation. If you love the VU you're gonna dig this tribute to their excellence.
10/10 Michael LoCicero Customer review, 4th June 2014
This RSD 2014 Release I Have to Say Is One Fine Piece. Lou Reed's last appearance with the Velvet Underground was the "LOADED" LP, which also was an RSD 2014 release. I purchased about $500 worth of LP's that day in the USA, then followed it up with another $200 on line from Great Britain the following week. Of the 27 pieces I purchased I honestly can say that HOLLIS BROWN GETS LOADED was my absolute favorite of the whole lot, and that is really saying something, because I picked up some fine LP's. I HIGHLY RECCOMEND THIS ALBUM, even if you are not a Velvet Underground fan. I never even heard of these guys but I thought it would be kind of cool to have both LOADED LP"S. BUY THIS ALBUMBEFORE THEY ARE GONE.
