[Edit]

Joy wasn't the first emotion most people thought of when it came to the Velvet Underground, but Loaded put it front and center. One of the things it's loaded with, in fact, is bubblegum "ba-ba-ba-ba's (first cut, "Who Loves the Sun"). Working within a mix of acoustic and electric guitars, Lou Reed sings many of his numbers as if hopping up and down on a mattress. Among them are definitive versions of the new "Sweet Jane" and "Rock & Roll." In addition to those songs' celebrations, he turns hippiedom's rustic mysticism on its ear with "Train Round the Bend" ("I miss the city streets and the neon lights") and stomps as hard as Godzilla through the statement of pride that is "Head Held High." Though less excitable, Doug Yule makes the most of the quieter "New Age" and "Oh! Sweet Nuthin'" - the latter one of the most ecstatic guitar workouts in Velvet annals. What a swansong.
