Metallica and Lou Reed really should have known better- Lulu Review

In an utterly unfathomable move Lou Reed and Metallica have come together to put out a collection of ten songs based upon the expressionist work of German playwright Benjamin Franklin Wedekind. Badly produced and badly performed, Lulu is nothing more than a Rich Man’s vanity project.

Lasting almost ninety minutes, it comprises of what sound like previously rejected Metallica demos, interspersed with the ramblings of a silly, old man talking to himself in a dark corner. Far from being challenging or groundbreaking, Lulu is tedious, misguided nonsense that falls spectacularly below its lofty pretensions. The self-indulgence on display is simply staggering and those responsible should not be entertained.

Don’t buy this album.

  1. MY OPINION BEING – THAT JOOLS HOLLAND APPEARANCE WASN’T TOO BAD… NOT HAVING HEARD THE ALBUM I CAN’T COMMENT. NOT WISHING TO AGREE I SAY – THINK FOR YERSELF – AND NOT WISHING TO MISS AN OPPORTUNITY TO PLUG A DECENT RECORD – CATCH OLD ONE – ON YOU TUBE OR THEIR WEBSITE
