Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You’re:

Looking for a mellow oldie to zone out to.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

It’s kind of funny, reminds me of some meme’s that are out nowadays. Not the worst, not the best.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

It’d be great on vinyl!

Final Thoughts:

Nico’s Chelsea Girl is a iconic album that actually lives up to its buzz. Excellently produced and hauntingly preformed. It’s one of those albums that fits each track well together. It’s a classic and it’ll continue to influence future musicians. One of the albums that’s a must own if you’re a vinyl fiend like me.

Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You’re:

Want a mash up of tons of critically acclaimed musicians from hip-hop to blues/funk.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

It’s super random, just like the whole album, love it.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

So badly.

Final Thoughts:

This is one of those absolutely amazing albums that just went unnoticed, and I’m baffled why that is. I mean look at that star studded list of featuring artists, are you freaking kidding me? This is a music fans dream of an album and I for one am not letting it slip away without giving it the proper appreciation. The album as a whole may have only gotten 75%. But the songs that work, work really well. Please listen to these guys. You’ll thank me later.
