Berlin is the third solo studio album by American musician Lou Reed, released in July 1973 by RCA Records. A concept album, Berlin tells the story of a couple's struggle with drug addiction and abuse. Initially, critical reception was mixed but appraisals of the album have warmed over the years: in 1973 Rolling Stone declared the album "a disaster" but in 2003, the album was ranked No. 344 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

Having first surfaced on the Velvet Underground's fourth album, Loaded, in 1970, Reed reworked the song to dramatic effect on his live solo album, Rock n Roll Animal, wherein it became a hard rock magnum opus courtesy of the prolonged twin-guitar instrumental intro. Steve Hunter and Dick Wagner trade licks for an inordinately long time before one of the most instantly recognisable riffs in rock'n'roll finally emerges. 1989's New York album, his 15th solo outing, was a stunning return to form: a long series of songs about the city that remained his biggest inspiration. The deftly observational Halloween Parade, about the annual gay celebration in Greenwich Village, is a kind of dark coda to Walk on the Wild Side, a post-Aids elegy to the fallen – "There ain't no Harry, no Virgin Mary/ You won't hear those voices again/ And Johnny Rio and Rotten Rita/ You'll never see those faces again.
Stephen Lovekin, Getty Images. According to an article in Rolling Stone, a couple of the album's song titles are 'Pumping Blood' and 'Mistress Dread. We only hope that these tunes are as good as their names. We're crossing our fingers that 'Pumping Blood' is as heavy a song as you'd hear on 'Master of Puppets,' while 'Mistress Dread' is a gothic throwback to the Velvet Underground's 'Venus in Furs. 2. It sounds like the Velvet Underground on steroids. We're talking about Lou Reed's incredible Velvet Underground song 'Heroin,' an epic symphony of beautiful melody and noisy feedback. A marriage of that sound with Metallica's brawn can make for an intriguing collaboration - something along the lines of Metallica's 'S&M' album with the San Francisco Symphony, but a little bit edgier.
