Yep, that's what I was thinking of.

Just got given Velvet Underground and Nico... four tracks in... and it's a million miles from what I expected.

You have no music taste. The Black Angel's Death Song is beautiful.

Admittedly, the album is a grower.

Definitely a grower - I had listened to some Velvets and Reed when I was a kid, so I knew what to expect when I started listening to them more often when I was about 14. I can imagine it'd be difficult if you're just expecting some classic rock though - but that would be boring!

It might take a long time for you to respect VU if it's "not what you were expecting". I hope later you'll appreciate the album's huge influence and it's awesome cerebral mindfucking abilities that arguably have never been surpassed.

Gold luck, COBL!

I personally would recommend Treasure over Heaven and Las Vegas as a first album.

As U2DMFan alluded to, both of these albums are different enough from each other that it ends up coming down to personal preference.

It's a grower, but VU & Nico is my least favorite VU album to be honest (Heroin, I'm Waiting For The Man, and Sunday Morning notwithstanding). The self-titled and Loaded are both much more fun, and I get a sick joy out of cranking up White Light/White Heat from time to time.

Who told you to start with the first one, anyway? I'd go with Loaded or the self-titled and try to ease into their stuff.

It took me a while to get into Velvet & Nico, but I really love it now.

I'll be your mirror, L-Mel.

Forgot about that one. Venus In Furs isn't bad at all either.
