I much prefer the other albums but I think a case could be made to red Loaded as well. It was #109 on Rolling Stone's list, higher than WL/WH or self-titled, and isn't far behind those two albums on Acclaimed Music. It also contains two of their most well-known songs: Sweet Jane and Rock & Roll. I don't know how well it sold but really popularity doesn't mean shit when talking about the VU.

I would very much like that. Cale is horribly underrated, in my opinion.

I dont know what to say. I have a hard time realising that he is gone because he is one of the first rock artists who come to mind when I think "living legend". He might be a legend with quite a few artistic misteps, but still a legend. R.I.P.
