'''''The Velvet Underground''''' is the third studio album by Music/VelvetUnderground, released in 1969. It is their first album without founding member Music/JohnCale, who chose to leave the band after ''Music/WhiteLightWhiteHeat'' from the previous year; it is also their last studio album to feature Maureen Tucker, as due to her pregnancy she was unable to appear on ''Music/{{Loaded}}'' from the following year. This album is the first featuring Cale's replacement Doug Yule, who would take over the band in the future.

With his main rival within the band removed Music/LouReed was able to make his own ideas and tastes more dominant. The result was a less AvantGardeMusic sound compared to their previous two albums ''Music/TheVelvetUndergroundAndNico'' from 1967 and ''Music/WhiteLightWhiteHeat''. Most of the songs are straightforward rock songs such as "Candy Says", "What Goes On?" and "Pale Blue Eyes", which remained audience favourites over the years.

* AvantGardeMusic: "The Murder Mystery" is the sole track that fits this genre.
* BlackAndWhiteMorality: A huge theme on the album. In "That's the Story Of My Life" the difference between wrong and right is said to be "dead". In "Beginning To See The Light" Reed asks: "Here comes two of you, which one will you choose? One is black, one is blue. Don't know just what to do?" and in "Jesus" he asks Jesus to help him.
