While most people think of Transformer as his best solo album I find Berlin to be his master piece. I have a soft spot for concept albums, though.
I don't know if it counts as a concept album. However, as big a fan as I am of his 70s and 60s work, and individual songs from those records, I have to say that probably New York is my favorite Lou Reed album. From the opening riff of Romeo had Juliette to the "hit single" Dirty Blvd all the way to the closing tracks, Strawman and Dime Store Mystery, there wasn't a bad song on that album.
