Here’s the first offering from the Lou Reed/Metallica collaboration called “Lulu”. Based on German Expressionist writer Frank Wedekind’s “Lulu Plays”. The official “Lulu” website goes into more detail here. Both artists have taken many risks with mixed results in their respective careers. I’ve only listened to “The View” a couple of times, and as a fan of both Reed and Metallica I find it fascinating. Maybe not their best work but still interesting. I’m sure there will be purists from both camps crying about this and that will, no doubt, be entertaining in itself. Give “The View” a listen and let me know what you think in the comment section below. It’s also available for download here. The full album will be out on November 1st.
