Metallica & Lou Reed ( LULU) OMG !!!

#1 Post by Rokubota » 21 Oct 2011 21:13

This record is a collaboration between Lou Reed and Metallica. I think is HORRIBLE.

If you go to this link you can listen to it.

What do you think about it?

The clips I've heard took away all the courage to listen to the whole thing. I could have taken any kind of musical direction they'd have gone into.... but a lot of jamming with Lou Reed speaking is not something I think I can endure.

Wow. They actually released that? It's like sketches of a demo...

They say that there's a broken light for every heart on Broadway.
They say that life's a game, then they take the board away.
They give you masks and costumes and an outline of the story
Then leave you all to improvise their vicious cabaret...

I hear Metallica is already working on their next collaboration project thingy. The preview snippet sounds pretty interesting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PRPzElP_eSI

This has to be the most shitty release this year. It truly is horrible, regardless of it not having a true Metallica / Lou Reed sound. The I am the table part was kind of funny, but what the hell are these kind of lyrics doing in a song:

"I will swallow your sharpest cutter
Like a colored man's dick''

:?: :lol:

I cannot decide what is worse: the lyrics, musicianship or the writing of the ehm... riffs and melodies.

Wow. WOW. I have to say, I'm impressed.

I wasn't aware that any person, or collaboration of people, could make music this unbelievably bad. Usually when I hear awful music, I turn it off immediately, but this was something so mind-bogglingly terrible that I sat entranced, unable to move, simply having to weather the storm of awful and hope I came out sane on the other side.

I stand humbled. Bravo.

First of all respect to metallica for doing something completley new.
And second it is more a Lou Reed album than a Metallica album....

BUT: What i heard so far, it is really not my taste of music. This spoken words are annoying and sound terrible in my ears.
So yeah, i can only turn in and say: WTF?

well (for all german speakers) Lulu means Lulu (for not speakers: Lulu is a childish word for emiction :lol:

Probably stuck up metalheads who think they're instantly open-minded by listening to anything with some non-metal influences, however sucky...

However, for the actual open-minded, I do heartily recommend Alban Berg's modernist opera Lulu. :P

I red that in greek and translated it myself so sorry if i didn't translate it well enough

Ulrich: "when in 1984 our hardcore fans listened acoustic guitars on “Fade To Black” a nuclear holocust almost took place in the metal comunity.from then much more have been done. what we did now is nothing like whatever we've done so far. no one can make a melody like the ones Lou makes. it's not for everybody but i think it's a fantastic album."

There's a big difference between being open-minded, and being willing to eat a plate of shit. Defending this album is an excellent example of the latter.

But "shit" is always subjective. Flies for example love it ;)
But so far i found nobody who likes these songs (but i have to admit i haven't listened to the complete album) but well those songs i heard were enough....

i'm beggining to think that this album was some sort of prank that Lou Reed had in mind....if so,he succeeded and must be laughing his ass off at the general public and counting the money.

Well, I wasn't personally there, and he exagerates a lot, but it's only true that *indeed* a lot of fans thought Metallica sold out 'cause they dared to put acoustic guitars and a ballad on their record.

Well, in the very little defense that can be done of them, it should be said that this is not "Metallica and Lou Reed" - but rather Lou Reed doing his own avangarde mumbling thing, that wanted some heavy music to go with his spoken ramblings, and said heavy music was provided by Metallica. It's way more Lou Reed's baby than Metallica's one, and definitively it's not a case like Demons & Wizards where the two main bands are equally represented.

We don't talk about Lars...he is just kinda there to bang the drums. Lars is a dick and we all know it, I haven't heard it, but nothing but horrid reviews and words abound I shall stay away. After listening to their older stuff...hell I can't even really listen to anything "Metallica" or newer...it just isn't as good.

True enough, but Reed's incoherent drunken mumbling isn't the only catastrophe on this record. Metallica's "contribution" is equally horrid and insulting. Not only to Metalheads, but insulting to Mankind. Yes, that bad! 8)

Honestly (but very honestly)... this "Lulu" sounds like a parody, starting with the name and ending with the last track. If didn't know it is Lou Reed and Metallica, I would think I was listening to something like Tenacious D.

Metallica has been disappointing me over and over, and this time Lou Reed attended to the party either.

This so awful...

I wonder if all the guys in Metallica truly believe this abomination of an album is good. After a pretty good record like "Death Magnetic", one would think there'd still be some good sense left in that band.

No, listen to the new Royal Hunt instead. Or the BG best of when it will come out. Or any album by Omnia. Or.... just about anything except St. Anger.
