who's had the better solo career, Cale or Reed?
>>
uh, Lou Reed?
>>
>>112820584
Hahahaha

No.
>>
John Cale is a black man??
>>
Cale made better music, Reed had more success
>>
>>112820532
Nico, by a mile.
>>
>>112820738
Obviously this (although Cale is largely to thank for the quality of Nico’s best albums). Both John and Lou were pretty overrated as solo artists and neither of them ever came close to topping WL/WH.

>>112820532
Cale made the best album of all time. Reed talked about his tranny wife for 12 minutes and shot up black tar heroin
>>
>>112820738
so Lou Reed then
>>
John Cale by a large margin.
>>
>>112820532
Reed was nothing without Cale.
>>
It’s stylish to say Cale but anyone who doesn’t acknowledge Lou Reed is a 10x better songwriter is being dishonest with themselves.
>>
>>112821001
His actual solo material is fucking boring trash compared to Nico's. Same with Cale. They put their best effort into her.
>>
>>112821205
i thought Lou would win by a large margin, actually surprised so many are saying Cale, that being the reddit answer. Albums like Berlin, Street Hassle and MMM are the kind of stuff I'd imagine /mu/ would idolize

Absolutely delusional. As someone who has actually listened to all albums by these three solo, it's Lou by a large margin. He made about a dozen great albums. Though the best of Cale (Paris 1919, Fear) rates similarly to the best of Reed (Berlin, Transformer). Nico is a non-factor.
>>
Cale looks like the Ultimate Warrior.

Ultimate Warrior was based but Lou goes over.
>>
>>112820532
Reed made Metal Machine Music, so he won
>>
>>112821342
>Transformer
pleb, only good in there is song is vicious
>>
New Sensations is best Lou
>>
>>112821537
Just a really lame contrarian opinion to have.
>>
>>112821537
>t. listened to it once and got filtered because he's a low IQ mutt retard
>>
>>112821713
imagine thinking vicious is topped by any other song
>>
>>112821743
Vicious is of the same general quality as most of the songs on the album. Pretending it's way better than songs like Perfect Day, Satellite of Love, Hangin' 'Round, Andy's Chest, I'm So Free or Walk on the Wild Side is just retarded.
>>
>>112820532

Cale. a lot of his albums are underrated

a lot of Reed's solo albums on the other hand are overrated, most have a ton of terrible filler tracks
>>
>>112821780
Cale's whole discography is literally le too smart 4 u
>>
>>112820705
The welsh arent white apparently
>>
>>112821801
you can try to make a case for some of Cale's albums being "pretentious" or "bookish", but he did make relatively down to earth rock albums from Fear to Honi Soit ('74 to '81) that I think are clearly better than Reed's output at that time
>>
>>112820532
Reed because Lulu
>>
>>112821921
Nah.
Fear > The Bells > Coney Island Baby > Street Hassle > Slow Dazzle > Helen of Troy > Rock and Roll Heart > Growing Up in Public > Sally Can't Dance > Honi Soit > MMM
>>
>>112820987

during the production of this album Shaun was making fun of Cale eating oranges to stay sober and the two could barely understand each other, lol
>>
>>112822015
everything apart from the title track on The Bells is total trash and Reed's warbling vocals are embarrassing

similarly on Street Hassle, the title track is incredible, but everything else is just bad, at least Real Good Time Together is bad in an interesting way and I Wanna Be Black has that WTF factor to it
>>
>>112822097
fucking FILTERED beyond repair
>>
>>112822097
Low IQ moment
>>
Cale made Paris 1919 so him
>>
>>112820987
This is the most based opinion to ever be posted on this board. Happy Mondays are fantastic.

Spaniards had a long history of settling in parts of Southern Ireland and Wales which is why some celts look very swarthy

She's busy suckin on my ding dong :)
>>
>>112820532
Lou Reed by far. John Cale is so boring.
>>
>>112820532
Lou, but John had an amazing collab with Brian.
>>
>>112823847
