I'm not one of those critics who despises Nico's contributions to The Velvet Underground's legendary first album. I was very anxious to hear her solo album, Chelsea Girl. Although it's a nice, easy listening kind of album, it does get kind of monotonous after a while. A little more variation would have benefited the album nicely. As it is, though, it's not terrible; in fact it's quite good. I'm just nitpicking.
