Berlin is the third solo studio album by American musician Lou Reed, released in July 1973 by RCA Records. A concept album, Berlin tells the story of a couple's struggle with drug addiction and abuse. Initially, critical reception was mixed but appraisals of the album have warmed over the years: in 1973 Rolling Stone declared the album "a disaster" but in 2003, the album was ranked No. 344 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

Similar to Lou Reed - Berlin, but this one is printed by Robert Stace and has not Stereo stated on labels. Berlin ‎(LP, Album, RE). RCA International.

Berlin, the opening track of Lou Reed’s third solo studio album, introduces us to the album’s main characters, Jim and Caroline and also wakes an impression of the setting and the nature of their relationship. An early version of the song was recorded in 1971 and put on Lou Reed’s debut solo album Lou Reed. In an interview in 2007 he admitted he was toying with the possibility of writing an album with a story: I’m writing these songs and a character appears in a song and then disappears forever.

Transformer and "Walk on the Wild Side" were both major hits in 1972, to the surprise of both Lou Reed and the music industry, and with Reed suddenly a hot commodity, he used his newly won clout to make the most ambitious album of his career, Berlin.

Berlin may be a great album, it’s just not an easy one to listen to. It's intensely dark in its lyrical content, charting the doomed relationship of Caroline and Jim following them through drug addiction, domestic violence and suicide. Not the cheeriest of subjects for a concept album. First released in 1973, it was a commercial failure but became a cult classic. Berlin came hot on the heels of Reed’s glam rock masterpiece Transformer. Anyone expecting a commercial follow-up was non-plussed to say the least

Album · 1973 · 10 Songs. At the time of its 1973 release, Berlin was met with quizzical stares. After the success of Transformer and the hit "Walk on the Wild Side," Lou Reed had positioned himself as a leader of the glam rock movement. However, the former Velvet Underground leader always found greater comfort on society's margins, and his college days studying with Delmore Schwartz had instilled in him a sense of literary purpose. So doing Transformer II was out of the question. Instead, Reed released an album that's as introspective and painful as any album could be. Great beauty rests alongside.

Listen free to Lou Reed – Berlin (Berlin, Lady Day and more). The album is a tragic rock opera about a doomed couple, and addresses themes of drug use and depression. Upon its release, the response of fans and critics was not positive as many were expecting another upbeat glam outing. Poor sales in the US ( and harsh criticism made Reed feel disillusioned about the album and in subsequent years he rarely played any Berlin material in his live shows
