Well people, now is the time for you to weigh in and decide whether or not you enjoy the Lou Reed/Metallica collaboration album Lulu. On their official site, you can now stream the full album. So, do me a favor and after checking it out, come back here and let me know what you think of it, would ya?
Since the announcement that Lou Reed and Metallica were doing a collaboration album, people have been skeptical at best. Now that there are samples out of what the album will sound like, fans are not exactly please for the most part. So, some clever individual decided to put together a Lou Reed-less version of The View, leaving only the Metallica parts intact. It’s worth checking out and getting a good chuckle or two. Enjoy after the jump!
Well, apparently the 30-second clip of Lou Reed/Metallica‘s The View wasn’t enough for you listeners out there. So, the guys have decided to put out a 90-second preview which, in my opinion, doesn’t add one single thing to the 30-second clip. Honestly, nothing new has been added except for a few lines and the music being a little big longer. That is it.
After a few months of speculation, we are finally getting a chance to hear what the Lou Reed/Metallica collaboration sounds like in the form of a snippet. After the jump, you can hear a 30-second (or so) snippet of The View. The teaser starts out with wide open guitars and drums underneath Reed’s trademark vocals. Towards the end of the snippet, it switches over to James Hetfield’s singing while the music picks up pace. It’s weird, it’s heavy and it’s about what I was expecting.
Loutallica (their choice, not mine) have released the full track listing for the upcoming collaboration album, Lulu, which you can check after the jump! I’m personally really excited to see that Junior Dad is nearly 20 minutes long! I’m a big fan of epic songs and Metallica has proved over the years that they can easily write solid seven to nine minute tracks. The addition of Lou Reed and his experimental stylings can (hopefully) only bolster this effort.
The Lou Reed/Metallica project has got a lot of people curious. There is much speculation as to the sound, how much of a contribution either party had, and more. Well, while I can’t answer those questions for you, I can tell you a few details about the upcoming release. First of all, according to the official website, the album will be out on Halloween around the world and released in North America a day later on November 1st. Second, the album is called Lulu. Third, a few song titles have popped up, including Mistress Dread and Pumping Blood.
