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?
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.Read more ›
