77. Nico- Chelsea Girl
Release Date: 1967
You're likely to recognise Nico from the Velvet Underground's debut album (more on them later) and if you don't know the name, you'll know the voice. This is the second album in a row in which the lyrics have been sung in the singer's second language (Nico is of German orgin) and this is the poorer of the two albums because it doesn't go anywhere lyrically or musically (the title track is the best example of this). It sounds like Nico has a vocal range of three semitones, her performance is that flat and monotonous.
There's a book you may or may not have heard of called '1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die'. Here is my attempt to do just that. Follow my progress from Frank Sinatra to Arcade Fire as I write my thoughts and feelings about each album.
