Berlin is the third solo studio album by American musician Lou Reed, released in July 1973 by RCA Records. A concept album, Berlin tells the story of a couple's struggle with drug addiction and abuse. Initially, critical reception was mixed but appraisals of the album have warmed over the years: in 1973 Rolling Stone declared the album "a disaster" but in 2003, the album was ranked No. 344 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

Berlin may be a great album, it’s just not an easy one to listen to. It's intensely dark in its lyrical content, charting the doomed relationship of Caroline and Jim following them through drug addiction, domestic violence and suicide. Not the cheeriest of subjects for a concept album. First released in 1973, it was a commercial failure but became a cult classic. Berlin came hot on the heels of Reed’s glam rock masterpiece Transformer. Anyone expecting a commercial follow-up was non-plussed to say the least

Berlin, the opening track of Lou Reed’s third solo studio album, introduces us to the album’s main characters, Jim and Caroline and also wakes an impression of the setting and the nature of their relationship. An early version of the song was recorded in 1971 and put on Lou Reed’s debut solo album Lou Reed. In an interview in 2007 he admitted he was toying with the possibility of writing an album with a story: I’m writing these songs and a character appears in a song and then disappears forever.

Listen free to Lou Reed – Berlin (Berlin, Lady Day and more). The album is a tragic rock opera about a doomed couple, and addresses themes of drug use and depression. Upon its release, the response of fans and critics was not positive as many were expecting another upbeat glam outing. Poor sales in the US ( and harsh criticism made Reed feel disillusioned about the album and in subsequent years he rarely played any Berlin material in his live shows

Lou Reed brings his masterpiece Berlin album to the stage for all to appreciate. While the video aspects are respectful of Lou and his music with regard to professionalism, the dvd in no way comes off as a "movie" about the music. In fact, they remove us from the intensity of Lou's performance and the excellence of his band and choir

Comments to album Lou Reed - Berlin
I have a copy with the same Matrix/Runout stamped etchings and matching sleevenotes. However on the label the the box for BIEM and GEMA is communal, and the word 'International' is missing.Anyone? Mike
