Rated Sound
Animal Language, is bonkers. Everything that is bad about Sally Can’t Dance is incorporated into this song. Overblown production, an attempt at the “glam” posturing of Transformer and a disinterested performance from Lou Reed. […]

Robert Christgau
Lou sure is adept at figuring out new ways to shit on people. I mean, what else are we to make of this grotesque hodgepodge of soul horns, flash guitar, deadpan songspeech, and indifferent rhymes? […]

The lyrics are fairly trite, although have elements of humour here and there. The album sold, which must have pleased the record company. – See more at: http://www.adriandenning.co.uk/lou.html#sthash.o4gtrTDI.dpuf […]
