It's no skin off my nose if they want to collaborate, but I do wonder what the point is.

I kinda like it. Took me a few listens but it started to grow on me. I'm looking forward to see how this concept album plays out.

And its a Lou Reed album ft Metallica not a Metallica album so don't go in expecting Master Of Puppets II.

Exactly, he wrote the whole thing, they just adapted parts apparently.

The music is good, I just am not sure about the vocal parts, never really been fan of Lou Reed is all. But you never know it may grow on me

I'd rather listen to Tumbleweed than Lou Reed or Metallica.

The full album has leaked.

Suffice to say it's not one I'll be paying for...

First there was the Cleveland Steamer. Now Metallica brings you the Bay Area Steamer.

Yeah OK, I expected something pretty average but having now listened to the whole thing twice through I can safely say I'll never voluntarily listen to it again. Even St Anger is a masterpiece compared to this horse shit.

I rate it one huge double-flushing turd out of 10.

I'ts NOT a Metallica album remember? Maybe people would not be so quick to have a crack at it if they didn't use the Metallica name, but I haven't heard the full thing yet, so it could be utterly shite

It's terrible.

In defence of the samples/streaming/leak, people might argue;
- It's not a Metallica album, it's a Lou Reed album.
- Metallica have earned the right to do whatever they want.
- Lou Reed is a genius legend, and the rest of us just don't 'get it'.

Bullshit!

- It IS a Lou Reed AND Metallica record. It says so on the box!
- Metallica can also choose NOT to do things. Surely someone in the Metallica camp must have noticed during the writing, rehearsal, recording, production processes that this thing sucks.
- How can people praise Lou Reed, and then mock William Shatner? Was Lou even trying on this? Is he taking the piss? There is nothing genius or legendary about Lulu. Nope, nothing.

I actually just listened to this to see how bad it was.

I feel like formatting my hard drive.It's quite possibly ruined music as we know it.

The sad thing is... that's actually WAY more listenable than Lulu.

There are a couple of songs where the collaboration works. Such as "Iced Honey" and "Frustration" Where they have created something that sounds unique and listenable. Other songs it doesnt work. Lou Reeds singing is out of key or out of time.


I've listened to it a couple of times now. Some of the lyrics are very weird and fucked up. "Spermless like a girl" WTF?

I wouldn't buy it though, but im not condeming it like some people. Would have preferred more James vocals, but oh well.
