    On a scale of 1-10, one being awful and ten being terrible, where do you think this will land?

    Yeah...
    Mostly because Lou can't even pretend to sing anymore. Not that he ever "sang", but he's at the point where he can't even speak the lyrics with any semblance of timing or rhythm.

    I kind of hate Metallica, so I think I'll skip this.

    I love Metallica but I've really never had any use for Lou Reed. I'm thinking this is going to be an abomination. I own every Metallica album but I suspect I'll be skipping this one.

    I respect and recognize Lou Reed's career. I tolerate what Metallica has become in the past ten years. (Although I consistently listen to Death Magnetic) Their collaboration will mostly sound like shit.

    Lars can't keep time anymore so it's a match made in heaven.

    Next time I get splashy/farty diarrhea I'm gonna record it backed by my own guitar and drum playing, guaranteed it will rock harder.

    It may not rock harder, but I bet Pitchfork praises it.

    I don't know what to say. That was abysmal.

    Reminds me of a better version of Henry Rollins, which is still turribull.
    Lou Reed used to do good stuff...

    I think what really pisses me off is the dozens of people involved. One of the fucking people jn the recording process couldn't say "hey this sucks a dick" or "the vocals are horrendous". Same goes for shitty movies.
    Thank god for the Internet because if this came out when I was 13 I would have bought this just because it had metallicas name on it

    Because they make a living recording shit like this. You don't tell the hand that feeds you that it can't keep time or sing.

    And it sounded exactly what I thought it would. An old guy talking over top of a Metallica rip-off band.

    i probably won't be very good but in all honesty i think that 30 second clip could be a middle of a song spoken word part which really doesn't tell you what the rest of the song is like. Kind of a dumb thing to release

    Except that Lou Reed doesn't actually sing. He talks over music. That's what he's done for the past 40 years.
