    Lou Reed was an influential American rock singer songwriter and guitarist He first came to prominence as the guitarist and principal singer songwriter of The Velvet Underground 1965 1973 The band gained little mainstream attention during their career, but in hindsight became one of the most influential of their era As the Velvets principal songwriter, Reed wrote about subjects of personal experience that rarely had been examined in rock and roll, including bondage and SM Venus in Furs , transvestites Sister Ray and Candy Says , drug culture Heroin and I m Waiting for the Man , and transsexuals undergoing surgery Lady Godiva s Operation As a guitarist, he was a pioneer in the use of distortion, high volume feedback, and nonstandard tunings.Reed began a long and eclectic solo career in 1971 He had a hit the following year with Walk on the Wild Side , though for than a decade Reed seemed to willfully evade the mainstream commercial success its chart status offered him One of rock s most volatile personalities, Reed s work as a solo artist has frustrated critics wishing for a return of The Velvet Underground The most notable example is 1975 s infamous double LP of recorded feedback loops, Metal Machine Music, upon which Reed later commented, no one is supposed to be able to do a thing like that and survive By the late 1980s, however, Reed had won wide recognition as an elder statesman of rock.

    By turns beautiful and disturbing, Lou Reed has adapted the poems and stories of Edgar Allan Poe as a musical, presented here as a book of lyrical poetry and prose The illustrations by Mattotti are by turns dream like and nightmarish, in both stark monochromes and vividly febrile colour.This is the first time I ve seen Mattotti s artwork, so I can t compare it to any of his others, but as an isolated example I have to say he s able to brilliantly express Reed Poe at both their most wistful and m [...]

    If you love Poe and Reed, then this is definitely for you The illustrations are terrifying and mesmerizing Sometimes very disturbing But, they speak to you in a big way Makes the poems so much intriguing I d like to solve the mysteries of life cutting someone s throat or removing their heart You can t get imaginative then that RIP Lou Reed

    There are two different books made in to one.The first book published in 2003 contains only the lyrics of the album the Raven.The second edition is illustrated and translated Even in Dutch Great book But again two different books where made in to one

    Een beetje overbodig boek, ware het niet van de illustraties van Matotti.Wie haalt het in zijn hoofd om een tekstbewerking te maken van een meesterwerk van Egard Allan Poe Lou reed beter tegen een boom.

    A good meeting of minds Poe Reed Mattotti makes me almost want to give the double album another chance Almost
