 "The Velvet Underground and Nico, recorded nearly twenty years ago, remains the official road map of New York City's bohemian underworld. Artists as diverse as David Bowie, the Cars, New Order and R.E.M. have openly drawn on the Velvets' legacy and singer-guitarist Lou Reed's historic repertoire." Rolling Stone
"It made me shiver when I heard it. They had created a milestone only to be compared with the great pieces of classical music." Dieter Meier, Yello
 "It is almost impossible to think of The Velvet Underground in the past tense...I can hear them almost everywhere these days, and have done for years." Alan Jones, Melody Maker
