Is this the greatest debut album ever? Yes according to the August 2006 Uncut. And it’s true; this album is one of the greatest albums you can own, and definately the best debut. It’s got pop, it’s got weird. What ever mood you are in it will work for you.
But the best way to hear this album is the box set: Peel Slowly and See. You get demos and outakes as well as live tracks. If you own that and the 2CD version of The Velvet Underground & Nico then you truly are set for life.
And remember that acetate that went on eBay for $25,200 a while back? Well now you can dowload it! More info on Uncut.
