"Here is a new Lou Reed collection that definitely belongs in all fans collection of the man. Different Times: Lou Reed In The '70s is a great 17 song retrospective spanning all material from 6 of his 8 '70s RCA releases (nothing from Lou Reed Live & Metal Machine Music...That's a different story altogether). Only 5 tunes "Walk On The Wild Side", "Sweet Jane", "Coney Island Baby", "Sally Can't Dance" & "Satellite Of Love" are hold-overs from his previous Walk On The Wild Side: The Best Of Lou Reed/RCA. Great liner notes on Lou's '70s RCA days are included detailing the tunes included, some cool pix and a great black/red/white pix disc is really hot! All the material is digitally remastered and will Rock you out full blast in true '70s Lou style! If RCA would only now issue a counterpart second collection of Lou's '80s work say...Defintely Different Times: Lou Reed In The '80s...We'll all be cool."

"While it would be tempting to give a Five Star rating to Arista's recent Definitive Collection, RCA's Different Times anthology earns it hands-down thanks to a great set that collects Lou's finest songs from his best period: the seventies. Don't get me wrong: albums like The Bells, Growing Up In Public and Street Hassle (from his Arista years)all contained great moments. As did his eighties RCA albums like The Blue Mask and New Sensations. But this collection has the songs that made him a critical darling: "Vicious", "Walk On The Wild Side", "I Can't Stand It", etc. And, thank heavens, it doesn't include ANYTHING from Metal Machine Music! A key seventies anthology which shows off Reed's genius with panache and reverence."
Thank you god

"i didn't know who lou reed was until i saw the movie trainspotting. the movie played the song 'perfect day' as renton sunk into the floor after a hit of heroine.
i found this cd at the library and was so happy. i threw it in the player and was drifted away into a beautiful oblivion.
this is a must have cd."
