Eternally perverse Reed responded to having a pop hit with Transformer by making a massive bummer of an album built around reworked versions of a couple of older songs Berlin is psychologically grueling and unremittingly dark scariest moment The Kids which ends with a very long tape of children screaming in terror but the savage contrasts of its sound have gotten more impressive with time The big production flourishes hit like a hangover Reeds voice sounds like hes trying to stave off emotional involvement with his lyrics because it would hurt too much and the multilayered textures of Oh Jim surge and recede like details of a nightmare The album takes strength to hear and rewards it Douglas Wolk amazoncom
