All four of the Lou Reed-era VU albums are among the best Rock records ever made. Personally I tend toward The Velvet Underground & Nico and the 1969 self-titled album, but White Light/White Heat is the reason these guys are cited as one of the big influences on Punk Rock. And of course "Sister Ray" is one of the truly iconic epics. Definitely a song (and record) best heard cranked to maximum volume with your mind-altering substance of choice in your system.
I first listened to this at 14. At first I was like "fuck" in a weirded out way since14 year olds aren't really exposed to this kind of stuff. And then with several more listens I was like "fuck" in an amazed way since at 14 year olds aren't really exposed to this kind of stuff.
