Nico: The End (Island)

Colman Andrews, Creem, May 1975

NICO'S LAST album, Desertshore — her strongest, most varied, most emotionally effective work, was released over four years ago. In the meantime, some of us have been reduced to abject penury or success; some of us have grown fertile, febrile, or fat; some of us have succumbed to The Grim Reaper, The Last Hurrah, or The Most Beautiful Girl (Boy) In The World. And some us have just moped around chewing our fingernails and muttering "When's another Nico album going to come out?"
