In her second album, [[Nico|Nico's]] ventured into new, uncharted territory. Even today it is hard to find other artists produce a similar styl; In 1969 it was nothing less than revolutionary. The general atmosphere of this album has been described as ''cold, abstract'' and quite often even as ''nightmarish.''

Review

  • In her second album, Nico's ventured into new, uncharted territory. Even today it is hard to find other artists produce a similar style; In 1969 it was nothing less than revolutionary. The general atmosphere of this album has been described as cold, abstract and quite often even as nightmarish.
    Although Nico is known to a wider public mostly through her cooperation with The Velvet Underground, this album can probably be seen as her most important contribution to modern popular music.
