Description
As Brian Eno famously put it, this newly remastered LP may not have sold many copies initially, "but everyone who bought it formed a band." The album is one of 225 recordings in the Library of Congress's National Recording Registry, and Rolling Stone placed it as No. 13 on their list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, dubbing it "the most prophetic rock album ever made."

"The Velvets [Lou Reed, John Cale, Sterling Morrison, and Maureen Tucker] dipped their toes into dreamy pop ('Sunday Morning'), tough garage rock ('Waiting for the Man'), stripped-down R&B ('There She Goes Again'), and understated love songs ('I'll Be Your Mirror') when they weren't busy creating sounds without pop precedent…. The bracing discord of 'European Son,' the troubling beauty of 'All Tomorrow's Parties,' and the expressive dynamics of 'Heroin' all remain as compelling as the day they were recorded."—All Music Guide
