Editorial Reviews

Lulu is the landmark collaboration album between two of music's true heavyweights, but yet surprising artistic bedfellows, Metallica and Lou Reed.

Customer Reviews

The only thing we can do as Metallica fans is to not buy this album.
ERK
Overall, however, I have to praise Metallica for making this album because it is new, different, inspired, and made me respect them as artists even more.

Even still, without Reed's talking, it would sound like Metallica just fooling around with their instruments.

So Lou Reed has this idea kicking around for a few years that he wants to write music for a German theatre group based on a series of old plays about an abused dancer who crosses paths with Jack the Ripper. He can't get it to sound how he wants, but then he jams with Metallica at a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame show. Eureka! Lou finds some young, hip rockers (compared to him, anyway) who can give him that dark, dangerous atmosphere he's been looking for. According to both sides, he casually says, "Hey, let's do an album together," after the jam and goes on his way. And now, two years later, we have Lulu. After listening to the album in its entirety, I have to wonder if Lou proposed this mess honestly when he brought it back up. I wonder if he said, "Hey, guys, are you willing to jump the shark and alienate the majority of your fan base (again) to be on an album with me?" And `Tallica, ever the experimenters, say, "Sure, Lou. We cranked out a decent metal album a couple years ago that went #1 around the world and energized millions of our fans, but hey, you're Lou Reed! Count us in!" I'm not complaining because I'm narrow-minded or don't like variety or risk-taking. The problem here is that, musically, vocally, and lyrically, repetition is the general idea behind these songs. Find a basic riff and just repeat it for anywhere from 4 to 20 minutes. Add in some noise and feedback here and there for at least some dynamics, and let Lou talk/"sing"/ramble over it until he's done. I know this is more of a Lou Reed album than a Metallica one, but whoever it belongs to, it's not very interesting or listenable. Considering the negative attention it's drawn, I'm not sure if many people will spring for this, but then again, since it is Metallica, it will probably sell millions of copies anyway.Read more ›

I have never written a review for anything in my life. This cd is so horrible that I feel that it is my duty as a human being to inform people. This album is like bad angel dust in audio form. The real words to describe this cd are not allowed in these reviews, all profanity and all bad. If you want to waste your money that bad, I could sell you a cd of farts and burps, that would even be better than Lulu.

Metallica fans, before you get too excited at the prospect of a follow-up to 2008's "Death Magnetic," please know that this is in no way a Metallica album. Lou Reed fans, before you begin to think your favorite member of The Velvet Underground has finally gotten off of his concept album kick following his four track ambient meditational album, "Hudson River Wind Meditations," please know that he has not.

When Lou Reed and Metallica first announced they would be collaborating for a full album, imaginations of fans ran wild. Metallica is easily one of the most successful and influential metal acts of all time and Lou Reed's work with The Velvet Underground created his legacy as both a songwriter and musical innovator. Their combined efforts had to result in something extraordinary, right?

Wrong.

Even in his prime, Lou Reed was never much of a vocalist. As a songwriter, he ranks among the best, but his voice is not the reason his albums sell. At 69 years of age, his voice has only gotten worse and it shows on "Lulu." For 87 minutes, what Lou Reed does on "Lulu" could rarely be classified as singing. In fact, most of the time "Lulu" sounds like a cross between a drunken rant and the mumbles of a crazy person talking to himself. To be honest, I'm not convinced it isn't literally a combination of those two things.

The concept of "Lulu" is basically Lou Reed taking on the persona of a young woman who has had terrible experiences with men and decides to give a drawn out monologue. The creepiness of a 69 year old man playing the part of a young woman aside, Metallica's backdrop feels terribly out of place.

This is seriously the absolute worst thing Metallica has ever put their name on. I've been a Metallica fan since I was 9 years old, I'm 31 now. I thought St. Anger was bad, but this album now makes St. Anger seem like gold and that's hard to do. Why did Metallica shoot themselves in the foot right after they had a decent album with "Death Magnetic"? All I can figure is Metallica has a bunch of "yes men" surrounding them and are afraid to tell them when something sucks. Although a normal person shouldn't need someone to tell them that this album sucks. If I was Metallica I would have NEVER put this out.

And now on to Lou flippin Reed. Oh My, don't get me wrong Lou Reed had his day, but the guy is old, apparently a weird perv, and totally tone deaf now. He sounds like the Grandpa from the Simpsons talking over music that he has no idea is playing in the background.

Some good news for Metallica though.
They have finally came up with a way to get people to stop downloading there music....Make absolute crap. Not only will I not buy this album, I will not waste the ridiculously small amount of memory it would take to save this album on my hard drive.

The only reason I gave this album one star is because their was not an option for zero stars.

Shame on you Metallica for putting crap out and expecting fans to buy it,....
