Nico's first solo album is an intriguing mix of poignant singer/songwriter compositions and the avant-garde leanings that reflect her involvement with The Velvet Underground. A then-unknown and very young Jackson Browne contributes three songs of stellar beauty ("Fairest of the Seasons," "These Days," and "Somewhere There's a Feather"), along with his understated guitarwork. Nico's compatriots in the Velvet Underground—Lou Reed, John Cale, and Sterling Morrison—join her for a variety of tunes, including the discordant "It Was a Pleasure Then" and the gentler, more introspective early Velvet Underground track "Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams," plus "Little Sister" and the poignantly autobiographical title track. Tom Wilson's production is artful and sublime, adding strings and flutes for a chamber-folk feel that's as singular in its approach as Nico's vocal phrasing. Bob Dylan's "I'll Keep It with Mine" is given a stern read, while Tim Hardin's "Eulogy to Lenny Bruce" couldn't be more stark and revealing. This 1967 album was at odds with the era's Summer of Love hippie vibe. It stands on its own as a unique masterwork.
