The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground & Nico
Although I'm not a huge Velvet Underground fan, I'm always totally on board when this record first starts. As it kicks off with the beautiful laziness of "Sunday Morning," then gives way to the foot stomping drive of "Waiting For the Man," I always think, "You know what? I never gave this record a fair shake." But then "Femme Fatale" starts and I remember why I gave up on The Velvet Underground & Nico. Because of Nico. By the time she sings, "She'll build you up to just put you down, what a clon" I want to kill myself. I suppose every man should have this in their collection so they have concrete proof that adding a lady to the mix can sometimes ruin your band's sound. Also because it has a penis on the cover.
