The Velvet Underground & NicoThe Velvet Underground
Whenever a big album like that comes up, I'm thinking - it can't be that good, right? And then I play it and realize that it is even better than I remembered. It's one of those where you can't overstate their influence. I mean you can hear all types of indie rock tracing their roots back to this thing. And it was made almost 60 years ago? You'd expect it to lose at least some appeal due to age, right? But no, it's as enjoyable as ever. This is one of those albums that this list was created for.
