An interesting record. I've been listening to it long enough to see it go from underrated masterpiece to wildly overrated piece of shit. It's been quite a transformation. And while it's a rare phenomenon, all it takes is one album, misunderstood and better than it's credited for being. Then you need a generation of idiots to pop up who read and believe everything written by "rock critics," as long as the opinions expressed can be considered a trifle esoteric. And there you have it: an underrated, unsung classic becomes a tedious, overrated pile of shit. Lou Reed, Berlin.
