Metallica and Lou Reed Release Longer Sample of New Album “Lulu”

As you should know by now, Metallica are releasing a collaborative record, titled Lulu, with underground rock legend Lou Reed on November 1. They released a 30-second sample of the song “The View” last week. Now they’ve topped that with a new, 90-second snippet from the same tune. Let us know what you think of it in the comments.

    Great riff, James Hetfield’s vocals are excellent in this song, Lou Reed however, is “the thing that should not be” in this song. his “singing” doesn’t flow with the song and makes it sound forced and makes you cringe. in short it would be a good album if Metallica just kept it simple.

    …and it sucks three times as much as the previous 30-second sample. At least they’re consistent thus far.

    complete and utter gash

    Wow, Nails on a chalkboard is more pleasant to listen to. While the song itself is good. By that I mean the music.. the singing.. if you can call it that resembles the sound made when you slaughter baby seals with a meat tenderizer hammer..
