  1. I thought I was somehow above any “WTF is this?” type of comments in regard to this project but SERIOUSLY WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON?!?!?!

  2. …and that’s why you always leave a note.

  3. 2 questions:

    why all the teasing?

    And why does the mannequin have Lars Ulrich’s face?

  5. St. Anger never sounded so good.

  6. Are you sure this isnt the new Weezer album?

  8. I heard the deluxe edition comes with 2 bonus tracks and a pair of ear plugs.

    okay, i’m done.

  9. Did they take the mannequin’s arms so she couldn’t cover her her ears?

  10. Lu Lu… More like Poo Poo.

  11. wait… was this supposed to a movie or something? I feel bad for whoever thought this would a good idea. maybe twenty years ago it could’ve been.

  13. This is arguably the best Grizzly Bear album yet.

  14. We’re all gay faggots? Thanks for straightening that out. I was beginning to fear I was a straight faggot or even worse a gay heterosexual. The horror. Double speak much?

    On a side note…..this is the single worst sounding music I’ve heard in years. And I kinda like both Metallica AND Lou Reed.


  15. Lulu>Velvet Underground and Nico

  16. Hilarious.

  17. I think we have the next generation’s Metal Machine Music, but worse… Much worse.

  18. I’m not going to listen to it until Pitchfork rates it. If they give it a good rating I’ll like it, a bad one, I’ll fucking hate it. I’m a non-conformist, who has my own opinions.

  19. Kinda reminds me of this episode of Friends:

  20. I just got a major does of heartburn in my old heart. I love Lou Reed and I want to know who suggested this collaboration. Seriously, the backing music is not what it needs to be for Lou’s voice.


  22. Tenacious D cruel joke ;D

  23. For the love of drama, and a mix of Metallica, warrants the full play as modern measure of time. A piece as complex as LuLu has really stood the test of time. Sometimes the confusion and blend of the arts becomes success ; ART FOR ARTS SAKE!

  24. The more I listen the more I hear.
