The Blue Mask is the eleventh solo studio album by American musician Lou Reed. It was the first album released after Reed had left Arista Records and returned to RCA Records. The album was released around Reed's 40th birthday, and covers topics of marriage and settling down, alongside themes of violence, paranoia, and alcoholism. Reed and Robert Quine's guitars were mixed separately in the right and left stereo channels respectively.

Complete your Lou Reed collection. Lou Reed and Robert Quine's guitars were mixed separately in the right and left stereo channels respectively. To differentiate his guitar's sound from Reed's, Quine used D tuning, playing each song as if it was one major second higher. For example, "Heavenly Arms" is in G major, so Quine used fingerings for A major to play the song.

The Blue Mask was Reed's first album after he overcame a long-standing addiction to alcohol and drugs, and it reveals a renewed focus and dedication to craft - for the first time in years, Reed had written an entire album's worth of moving, compelling songs, and was performing them with keen skill and genuine emotional commitment. Reed was also playing electric guitar again, and with the edgy genius he summoned up on White Light/White Heat.

The Blue Mask" lyrics. They tied his arms behind his back to teach him how to swim They put blood in his coffee and milk in his gin They stood over the soldier in the midst of the squalor There was war in his body and it caused his brain to holler. Make the sacrifice mutilate my face If you need someone to kill I'm a man without a will Wash the razor in the rain let me luxuriate in pain Please don't set me free death means a lot to me. The pain was lean and it made him scream he knew he was alive He put a pin through the nipples.

Album · 1982 · 10 Songs. With Quine's definitive attack underlining the words and the terror of Reed's best batch of tunes since Street Hassle, Reed finally delivered on the promise of his post–Velvet Underground career in a way that couldn't be denied. Berlin, his other masterwork, has its detractors. But these are songs that repay over repeated plays. The Blue Mask," "Underneath the Bottle," and "The Heroine" all flow with a sense of poetry and rock 'n' roll. In 1982-at a time when it was debatable if the '60s crowd could find relevance in a new decade-Reed proved it could be done without compromise. The Blue Mask Lou Reed.
