I am listening to, “Lulu”, the Lou Reed/Metallica album, right now for the first time. I am on the fourth song, and so far the ride has been incredible. Metallica sounds at their most ripping, and creative, since, “Master of Puppets”. I hear, “Masters”-era Metallica, Black Sabbath, stoner rock/doom metal, Earth, free-jazz, heavy-alternative like: Saccharine Trust, Butthole Surfers, Swans, and later Black Flag. I also hear the Velvet Underground, and Lou Reed solo sounds. I am loving this. It is really, really good. I really liked, “Death Magnetic”, but just like the band themselves, and Lou Reed, said…this is one of the best things either of them has ever done.
With all the horrible reviews of, “Lulu”, out there, some of you think I am being sarcastic in my glowing review of, “Lulu”…but I’m not. It is an awesome album. A great piece of art.
And I’m only on track 6 (of 10 total).
People have really shitty taste.
F*ck ‘em all!
…”Kill ‘em All!”
“Lulu”, is a really exciting record.
I don’t even know which songs to post yet off of youtube, because they are all awesome…I REALLY LIKE THIS ALBUM.
I can’t believe how many bad reviews of the this album are out there. People are f*ckin’ idiots! This is a really cool sounding record. Still on track 6. Still really digging it.
I am LOVING this at my first listen, but I feel that for some it may sound better if they really listen to it a few times. It will fly over the head of the average musical idiot.
Oh yeah, what the fuck is a, “Danko Jones”? (see blabbermouth.net news story about something, or someone, called, “Danko Jones”, not liking, “Lulu”? Who would judge their metal, or any music for that matter, by what someone called, “Danko Jones”, thinks?…I don’t know if, “Danko”, is even a musician? I DO know there is nothing metal about someone named, “Danko Jones”. So who is he to judge Metallica and Lou Reed?)
I am going to stop writing, and listen to the rest with complete focus.
LULU IS BEAUTIFUL.
Thank-you to: Lou Reed, James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, and Robert Trujillo. F*ck the naysayers, you made a great album.
Lulu is incredible.
