Debut album of one of rock and roll's most influential bands

The debut album of the Velvet Underground which featured vocalist Nico ( who was included at the insistence of Andy Warhol and who's vocals can be best described as an acquired taste). With the recent passing of founding member and chief songwriter Lou Reed you should definitely give this a listen. This band while not at all successful during its' active years mostly because it was too dark for the flower-power crowd and too dissonant for the blues revivalists has since been regarded as one of the most influential in Rock history. This influence caught on very soon after their break up in the early 70' and can still be heard in bands to this day.
