Info zu The Bells

Intriguing even by Reed's own standards, „The Bells“ is an experimental album, recorded in so-called binaural sound, a process which he became enamored with in the late '70s. Theoretically, it was supposed to simulate a 360 degree soundfield, although Reed himself has since admitted it didn't work.

Reed's usually plainspoken vocals are somewhat affected here, and the overall sound--courtesy of Marty Fogel's overdubbed saxophone section--verges on early '70s glam rock. Lyrically, the songs range from the meaningless 'Disco Mystic' (it consists of the repetition of just those two words over a four minute instrumental), to more typical Reed dissertations about walks on the wild side, the most chilling of which 'All Through the Night,' is sung against a backdrop of cocktail party chatter. Also noteworthy are 'City Lights,' one of Reed's first overtly political songs and the title track.

'...Reed's somewhat quixotic quest to make supermarket disco boogie resonate with emotions that are plainly not there....skillfully rendering a mood a utter desolation...' (The Wire)
