White Light / White Heat [Super Deluxe] (Bonus Tracks, Box Set)

White Light / White Heat [Super Deluxe] by The Velvet Underground
Released: Jan 1968
Label: Polydor
While the VU's debut was a perfect marriage between accessible guitar pop and avant-garde rock, this cuts out the prettiness, letting the band's noisy beauty take complete control. Another stunner, it closes with the scuzz classic "Sister Ray," which takes a "Wild Thing"-style primitive rocker and expands it into a brilliant epic that proves art can also be retarded, juvenile fun.
