Berlin (1973)

Berlin is a 1973 album by Lou Reed, his third solo album and the follow-up to Transformer. In 2003, the album was ranked number 344 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time, though the magazine had called the album a "disaster" 30 years prior.

The music business doesn`t interest me anymore.


If it has more than three chords, it`s jazz.


Produced `Metal Machine Music` in response to RCA Records` demands for a quick follow-up to his Top Ten LP `Sally Can`t Dance`. The hour-plus of electronic noise was almost buried as a classical release, but instead was promoted as a pop album. The resulting backlash nearly ruined the label and Reed`s reputation; both later issued apologies, while the album remains a musical enigma.


Resides in New York City.
