The Lou Reed / Metallica album, Lulu, can be heard in full over at the album’s official site.
It’s, uh, as plodding as the cover art is confusing – which is to say, quite a lot. Think Velvet Underground + Load/ReLoad and you’re pretty close. Any by Load/ReLoad, I mean the overlong, do-nothing riffs of “Outlaw Torn” and “Fixxxer.”
Kirk has said that this is “one of the best things we’ve ever done.” Gonna have to disagree with you, there.
I’m gonna try to have a review up soon.
