Transformer is the second solo studio album by American recording artist Lou Reed. The album is considered an influential landmark of the glam rock genre, anchored by Reed's most successful single, "Walk on the Wild Side", which touched on controversial topics of sexual orientation and drugs. Produced by David Bowie and arranged by Mick Ronson, the album was released in November 1972 by RCA Records.

With Transformer, Lou Reed got VU fan and influential glam rock artist David Bowie and Spiders From Mars guitarist Mick Ronson to produce and backup sing on the album. With classics like Walk On The Wild Side, Perfect Day, Vicious, and Satellite of Love, lots of people consider this to be Lou’s finest work and many (including Rolling Stone) have cited this as one of the greatest albums of all time. Lou Reed would later create classic albums such as Berlin, Street Hassle, New York, Coney Island Baby, Rock and Roll Animal, and Blue Mask. Transformer Q&A.

Transformer also found Reed digging into his days with the Velvet Underground, as per his first solo album. In comparison, it's not hard to enjoy the animated nature of the Velvets tracks but some of the shine is lost from Reed's solo versions. Reed's sexual ambiguity and daring led to much of the success of Transformer as well as the providing a direction for the next few years into his solo career.
