Drums & Wires thru English Settlement is my favorite period – there’s a bevy of great b-sides in there too – but a lot of people cut their teeth on Skylarking, and it is a pretty great record . .

Hejira’s my fave, but I understand the popular sentiment for Blue and Court and Spark. Might put Hissing Lawns at #2, and For the Roses at 3 – maybe.

Marie, from his under-appreciated last record, is about as harrowing as they get. So is The Hole.

never a big fan of their jammy side – PFNO would be #3 only because The Normal Years not allowed

I’d have a hard time parsing out the very best songs, but Legendary Hearts and Magic and Loss as whole records would be in my top 5 or so . . . no songs on the list of either, but then of course how do you narrow Lou Reed down to 10 songs – a noble task indeed

“Religion don’t mean a thing/ it’s just another way to be right wing” is a Damned quote btw

ya know, the boston spaceship years are pretty damn list-worthy too

. . . though I suppose Flowers is more of an odds and ends collection – but a great one

Big Hits (High Tide and Green Grass) is one of the best hits records ever, and neatly collects all those great early Jagger-Richards songs (minus most of the covers) – I know greatest hits records don’t usually qualify, but BHHTAGG would make my top five, and Flowers would be in my top ten.
