Lou Reed: Berlin
Michael Gross, Crawdaddy!, January 1974
LOU REED IS the grand ghoul of them all. He happens to scare people. He stands in the same relation to Bowie and Iggy and their ilk as Dylan did to Ochs and Paxton, and the Beatles did to the Kinks and the Animals. The others were good, but the first was the best.
