With his main rival within the band now gone, 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.

* 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.

* SurprisinglyGentleSong: "After Hours", much thanks to Maureen "Moe" Tucker's vocal delivery. Reed admitted he gave it to her on purpose because if he sang it wouldn't have sounded as innocent.
* {{Transsexual}}: "Candy Says", was written with Andy Warhol protégé Candy Darling in mind.

'''''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.
