The Master Hits Again
I purchased Lou Reed's Limited Edition Double CD "The Raven"! If you haven't heard it yet, you're missing out on a really unique work of art!! I think it's GREAT!!!

Quoth: The Raven 'Never More'
Or never again, or whatever. This is a horrible Lou Reed recording and it's the last time I buy into one of Lou's 'artsy' projects, before I get someone else's opinion on the actual music. There are some moving spoken word performances by some celebrities here and there and some moody atmoshperic sounds and music, but where's the Rock? even on the few numbers where Lou Reed actually sings and tries to conjure up a good 'Rock' song, this album falls flat. If you are a Lou Reed completist (like I am) maybe you should consider buying the single disc version of this album if you must. If you're just a casual Lou Reed fan, then stay away. Go buy New York, The Blue Mask, or Coney Island Baby. They'll leave you more satisfied. The Raven will leave you cold.

An Aural Epiphany
How did lou reed get this good? Laurie Anderson's influence is part of the story, Willem Defoe's edginess helps, too, but the classical influence brought by Friedrich Paravacini and Jane Scarpantoni makes the raven a transcendental masterpiece. This is the one CD to take to a desert island, and I should know because I'm a lighthouse keeper and this is the one CD I listen to.

Poe and Reed Exhumed!
Being quite dissapointed with the milestones of the "post Magic&Loss" career, with the "shmuckish" Twilight and wishy-washy Ecstasy, no surpise I was a bit reluctant to run a risk of buying another album of my former rock-Guru. (Still cannot find any reasonable answer how the author of songs like The Bed or Magician can end up in ones like Doing the Modern Dance or those containing lyrics like "...funny but it's true"; fortunately forgotten the name of the particular song). But The Raven (Limited Version!) is a moment of great resurrection! Finally, LR comes up with a consistent album, which "might or should be listen to as reading a book". Exceedingly moving dramatisations of the Fall of the House... and the Cask of Amontilado, forming two peaks of the Rock(y) Mountains, should be the very first pieces to be heard by any "greenhorn" in this territory. Take some time and re-play the former, to get consumed with the strange, "pre-natal" sounds of the guitar solo starting more or less at the point where Rodrigo Usher reads his lyric "Hunted Palace". One thing I have always admired LR's music for was an absolute modesty and simplicity (yet not punk-like drive), both in lyrics and in music, which he uses to create the most appealing and restlessly impressive pieces (e.g. The Songs for Drella is, with certain exceptions, a total crude-rock album requiring no additions to the instrumentation or sound arrangement. In addition, I can mention songs like Harry's Circum..., Caroline Says, but also Riptide). Therefore, I would not praise the songs like Who am I? or Guardian Angel, as both these represent some afte-rtastes or, hopefully, the final swan songs reminding me the previous late 1990's albums, but I would definitely emphasise those like Vanishing Act (with minimum but still sufficient quota of words), cold and somewhat impersonal interpretation of The Bed, Perfect Day (an eunuch song which opens some new horizons of contemplations on who/what does he really want to spend the perfect day with) or Blind Rage. With the exception of some artistically ambitious , pompous and absolutely boring, yet "modest" stuff (Guilty), the album fulfils all my expectations for Lou Reed's comeback as a reborn rock-poet or an author of album-books.

Very Good Music
I have read the reviews so far,and either people love this CD or they hate it. I think that says enough. I think it is worth the money, and the songs 'guardian angel' and 'who am i' are worth the price of admission alone. I am not saying that there are only two good songs, because there are a lot of great songs, but LR is taking a risk,and making very interesting material.
