Highlights from the Scotsman's review of Lou Reed's spoken-word performance:
"..the prelude to Reed’s performance at the forthcoming Burns Festival was nothing short of smug, egotistical self-indulgence."
"You had to admire his audacity."
"Soberly dressed, Reed made a gauche, somewhat muted entrance to the Reid Hall. He staggered to the podium, and any acknowledgement of the audience was purely minimal."
"The themes - change, memories, guilt - featured heavily, yet he seemed continually uninterested."
"Curious, but...hardly gripping."
All this adds up to, of course, Advanced.
