About: Released after the divisive and well-hated Metal Machine Music, Coney Island Baby charms in a welcome return to the beloved sound and expressive vocals of VU’s Loaded, while offering a pivot lyrically. This departure from third person observations, characteristic of Reed’s past songwriting, exposes a rarely seen, vulnerable side to Lou Reed.
Why it’s worth your time: Though sometimes seen as damage-control after MMM, Coney Island Baby is much more than what floats on the surface. Steeped in a gauzy warmth, cut through by raw, personable truthfulness–especially on the title track–we are offered a rare glimpse at Reed.
