Magic and Loss is the sixteenth solo studio album by American musician Lou Reed, released in January 1992 by Sire Records. A concept album, it was Reed's highest-charting album on the UK Albums Chart, peaking at No. 6. It's my dream album, because everything finally came together to where the album is finally fully realized.

Magic and Loss is the sixteenth album by Lou Reed. Originally released in 1992 on Sire Records, the concept album was Reed's highest peaking album on the UK Albums Chart, reaching No. Background. However, when tragedy struck during the writing process, Reed expanded the album's focus to themes of loss and death as well. Inspired in part by the illnesses and eventual deaths of two close friends, Magic and Loss was written for songwriter Doc Pomus, who had given Reed his start in the music business some 25 years earlier, and a woman Reed has identified as "Rita", popularly assumed to be Rotten Rita, who along with Reed was a familiar figure at Andy Warhol's studio

The Magic and Loss concept album sprung from tragedy in Reed's life. He had lost two close friends to cancer and struggled to understand the nature of life in death. By the end of the 2-disc album, closed out by the title song, he didn't find any answers, but he found a bit of hope. He told The Guardian: "At the end of Magic and Loss it's kinda: well, where do you go from here? And the thing was to try to explain well, there's magic in this life as well as loss
