Review: Lou Reed – Whats Good (The Thesis) (Rock)

This review covers the soft rock track Lou Reed – Whats Good (The Thesis).

This track was released in 1992 on the album Magic and Loss.

The track starts with some guitars and a drum kit. From there, the vocals take the track into the first verse. Some feedback comes in and the track goes into an instrumental section.

After that, the vocals take the track into the next verse. After that, there is an instrumental section.

From there, the vocals then take the track into the next verse. After that, the vocals extend the lyrics in a semi-instrumental section. The guitars then lead the track out.

A problem with this track is the fact that there really isn’t hardly anything in the way of a main chorus. A main chorus generally anchors the track. Unfortunately, there really isn’t anything here at all. Either that, or the whole track is one long main chorus.

As a result of the lyrics are a bit strange in terms of construction. In this case, they wind up being one large shopping list more than anything else.

The guitars are pretty bland. They are there and they add something to the track to keep things going. Unfortunately, they don’t make the track exciting or memorable in any way.

Overall, this track is pretty mediocre. The lyrics have a very shopping list feel to them. The guitars are quite bland and the main chorus is either the entirety of the track or non-existent. It’s confusing as to hwat it is. So, a very mediocre listening experience.
