    Yeah this was tough. Went with Transformer, Berlin and Legendary Hearts. Lots of competition for spot no 3. Coney Island, Street Hassle, Blue Mask and New York would be my runners-up.

    Interesting choices so far. It looks like there is as many opinions of what is Lou's best albums, as there are people.

    My top 3:

    New York
    Coney Island Baby
    Legendary Hearts

    Transformer is overexposed and tends to get all the attention by mainstream music press. It is very, very good though.
    New York is late-period masterpiece and those guitars...
    Sally Can't Dance is a fave of mine. Very mid'70s NY and sleazy.

    But I also wanted to vote for Legendary Hearts, Berlin, Magic and Loss, Drella, Street Hassle and Coney Island Baby. And Lulu.

    Why Mistrial? It usually gets a bad reputation.

    No Money Down is one of Reed's best songs, and one of the best videos ever made.

    Couldn't possibly narrow it down to three, too many albums on that list that I love.
