I break the law a bit when it coes to thing VU.
I think their albums are utterly overrated, one trick pony stuff, yet Cale I think is a blimmin genius most of the time (and the best voice to come out of Wales), but Lou Reid just irritates me. His voice, his face, his mullet, his bloody tunes. Dull as ditchwater.
Nico, I'm warming to. I do like the way her 's' sounds linger. There is a little bit of sorrow in there. One person's out of tune warblings is another's free expression (mine too). Perfect pitch is so overrated, banal at times, but it can be good if done with some heart. Very few of the singers I like are always 'on tune' tbh.
