The new Lou Reed/Metallica album “Lulu” is an abomination!


Of course, it’s not surprising that such an oddball collaboration would yield a less than amazing record, but “Lulu” is almost entirely un-fucking-listenable.  With what I can only imagine was a total disregard for pitch or rhythm, it actually sounds like Lou Reed recorded his vocals in a different hemisphere.


The best description of the listening experience that I’ve read thusfar is from this hilarious article from Chuck Klosterman: “If the Red Hot Chili Peppers acoustically covered the 12 worst Primus songs for Starbucks, it would still be (slightly) better than this.”


This might actually be the most listenable song on the album:



Even animals are repulsed:



Basta is in a state of revolt:

I am the table!
