Sealed 1969 Stereo Original. “Upon First Release, The Velvet Underground's Self-Titled Third Album Must Have Surprised Their Fans Nearly As Much As Their First Two Albums Shocked The Few Mainstream Music Fans Who Heard Them. After Testing The Limits Of How Musically And Thematically Challenging Rock Could Be On Velvet Underground & Nico And White Light/White Heat, This 1969 Release Sounded Spare, Quiet, And Contemplative, As If The Previous Albums Documented Some Manic, Speed-Fueled Party And This Was The Subdued Morning After. But Lou Reed's Lyrical Exploration Of The Demimonde Is As Keen Here As On Any Album He Ever Made, While Displaying A Warmth And Compassion He Sometimes Denied His Characters. "Candy Says," "Pale Blue Eyes," And "I'm Set Free" May Be More Muted In Approach Than What The Band Had Done In The Past, But "What Goes On" And "Beginning To See The Light" Made It Clear The VU Still Loved Rock & Roll, And "The Murder Mystery" (Which Mixes And Matches Four Separate Poetic Narratives) Is As Brave And Uncompromising As Anything On White Light/White Heat. This Album Sounds Less Like The Velvet Underground Than Any Of Their Studio Albums, But It's As Personal, Honest, And Moving As Anything Lou Reed Ever Committed To Tape.” Richie Unterberger, AMG.
