You’ve heard “The View,” which most of you guys weren’t psyched about, as well as previews of every track. Now Lou Reed & Metallica’s collaborative effort, Lulu, has hit the web. We’re in this together, now.
On the topic of leaks, Flo + her Machine is also out there if you want to wash the bad taste of this out of your mouth with something similarly mainstream but contrastingly better.
links or didn’t happen
It’s up on waffles.fm
I can’t believe the first line on this album is “I would cut my legs and tits off”. It sounds like an old man talking nonsense over a mediocre rock band.
That being said, I enjoyed the album.
It is an old man rambling over a mediocre rock band…fail.
fail for saying fail
Is anyone actually going to subject themselves to this? Those 30 second clips were enough for me, thanks. I mean…guys…that’s the best 30 seconds of music you could come up with? Great, good team. Can’t wait for the Iggy Pop/Megadeth album. Keep em Comin!
A Iggy Pop/Megadeth collaboration album is something I would love to hear, actually.
Agreed. That’d probably be really awesome. At least Dave never made St. Anger.
Oh please. Dave has made an equal amount of shit as metallica
For the record: Load and Reload were sooooo much worse than St. Anger, so don’t pull that line
Thumbs up for saying something substantial and not asking for a thumbs up freshie.
Yeah, I would totally get behind an Iggy Pop/Megadeth collab. I’ve also heard somebody suggest that a TV on the Radio/Prince collab would sound pretty phat. Can we push for that?
Not before the Jeff Mangum/Velvet Revolver collaboration….
Seriously, who downvoted my suggestion, which was pretty obviously a joke?
I didn’t, but I downvoted the plea for sanity because honestly, it seems like the cool thing everyone is doing these days.

I upvoted djfreshie’s comment, kept mhann24 neutral. I’ll be the first to say the new cool thing is to just not get involved. Now watch me get downvoted..
An [ANYBODY]/Prince Collab would probably be amazing.
Good suggestion alert: Lou Reed/Metallica/Prince album??
I’m a pretty life-long Metallica fan, so please excuse me if any fanboyism leaks through.
This album is bad. I gave it fair listen. Only a few tracks seem worth listening, but even those are too long. As a person who admires bands who try new things, I appreciate effort of experimentation. Many times they fail; this one failed. The music is not enjoyable. There might be something deeper within the grooves, but most likely not.
The only reason why a person would by it, is not because it’s a Master of Puppets that gets more interesting and robust upon further listens, but it will be a relic that people point and say “remember when?”. This is an Elephant Man of albums.
NOT the movie Elephant Man, a completely watchable and enjoyable movie starring Anthony Hopkins and directed by David Lynch.
BUT like the actual Elephant Man, as in, “Excuse me, your forehead is poking my eye.”
“I would cut my legs and tits off when I think of Boris Karloff and Kinski” is truly one of the greatest album opening lines of our time
Title of post should be renamed “Lou Reed and Metallica Lulu Bloodbath”.
How progressive of Metallica to stream their album online for free.
(I’m still not bitter about Napster, or anything like that.)
of course, when this album proves to be a massive commercial failure they will find a way to blame it on the free stream.
I can see how somebody thought this was a good idea, but a whole album of this stuff is just waaaay too much. If The View or even Pumping Blood was included on a proper Metallica album then people might be a lot kinder to it – and maybe even be talking about how great it is. But It’s just really hard to listen to more than a few tracks before needing to turn it off. I admire what they’re going for here, but it just falls flat on its face.
this could be the worst album i have ever heard!
Part of me is waiting for these two bands to admit that the whole thing is some kind of elaborate joke. I have to believe that some truly horrible decisions were made to get both Lou Reed and Metallica to such a low point.
At this point, I want to say theres nowhere to go but up. Then I realize they’ll probably tour this album, and I know we havent hit bottom yet
Can’t say I have listened to the music, but I genuinely like the album cover.
andycasablancas kicks down the door and calls everyone “malicious gay faggots” in 5…4…3…2…
I miss that guy.
I’m sorry if I offend, but seriously there is some malicious gay faggotry going on here.
You rock dude
Your move, Mastodon and Harvey Firestein.
maybe i have a higher tolerance for pretentious bullshit than most, but i think i like this more than i should…
I kind of really like this album. This is definitely the most interesting thing Metallica has done in 20 years. I love Lou’s batshit crazy lyrics.
its really a copy paste album, metallica riffs (not structure ellaborated at all), + lou lyrics + hetfield backing vocals, you can really tell this was written and recorded in less than 2 months, theres absolutely no effort to make something interesting, it sounded like a promising idea, but lou and metallica has stop caring about music quality a long time ago..
Cool secret message!
HEY I found another one…you have to look real close though…
Nahhh that is going too far, don’t forget about the infamous Bowie-Jagger video; at least they look like a rock band in the picture (Lou and his friends).
I’d Rather Hear An Eddie Money & Godsmack Cover Jesus Christ Superstar (<one of the best albums EVER btw).
I initially read that as “I’d rather hear an Eddie Murphy & Godsmack cover Jesus Christ Superstar”, which I think would be pretty ffffffreaking awesome.
I would get two tickets to see…..sorry
Lulu is a sexy good time.
