This is an album that hasn't aged well. When it was released in 1989 it generated some buzz and critical acclaim. "Dirty Blvd" is a solid rocker. At that time most college youth still listened religiously to the Velvet Underground. So we were predisposed to favor anything halfway listenable produced by the great Lou Reed. Listened to today NEW YORK is embarrassing, i.e., "Good Evening Mr. Waldheim." The album illuminates how a '60s bohemian becomes Archie Bunker, prefiguring the "Sister Souljah moment" of Bill Clinton a few years later.

Lou's homage to his hometown, with all it's filth and grandiose, truly one of his best releases.
