Okay, so here’s the first Metallica/Lou Reed clip, from their forthcoming album Lulu.

I know it’s not fair to judge an album on one small clip, but so far this …this ain’t grabbing me. I’m a huge Metallica fan and I rather dig Lou Reed (saw him live about 10 years ago and it was awesome) but if that’s the feel and the mix, this will go down as an interesting curio in the Metallica and Lou Reed discographies rather than the essential deviation I’d hoped for. But we’ll see.

By the way, Lulu and the new Megadeth album Th1rt3en come out on the same day. Interesting.
