The double album, Live (Mercury, 1974) shows a much more determined band, that continues the experiment of Sister Ray pushing to the limits of what would eventually be known as \\\"industrial music\\\". The mile-long versions of What Goes On and Ocean, featuring Moe Tucker\\\'s hallucinogenic drumming in full glory, and the unadulterated rock and roll of Sweet Bonnie Brown restores dignity to this period, proving that Lou Reed\\\'s cynicism had not yet sterilized all the passions of the group. - Piero Scaruffi -
