Today Lulu, the musical collaboration project between Lou Reed and Metallica, was made available in its entirety for streaming on their website.
Just as I predicted, it’s fucking terrible.
And I don’t know any nicer way to put it than that. When this whole thing was announced and through all the media frenzy I vowed not to even mention it because I knew it would be. However, and for the life of me I don’t know why, there do seem to be a lot of people out there that have some interest, even excitement, for Lulu and far be it from me to deny them. Tread carefully though, my friends. It’s pretty long and if you decide to stick with it, those are moments of your life you’ll never get back. Ever.
Listen to Lulu here, if you dare. I’ll hang back though.
Lulu is set to release on November 1st.
