Metallica, Lou Reed Release ‘The View’ Music Video
While I realize that a lot probably went into the editing and creating of this music video, it’s pretty lack luster. After hearing the tracks from Lulu though, I’m not all that surprised.
It’s basically just Metallica and Lou Reed standing in what seems to be a very dark studio, and I can’t say I blame them because they probably wanted no memory of this. We all know musicians are going to do what ever they want to do , but in this instance it may have been a bad move for the boys in Metallica.
Even Metallica’s fellow musicians are saying that they aren’t digging the whole Lulu project, which I think speaks volumes. So far after being available for four weeks the album has only sold 20,000 copies. At least we can take solace in the fact that Metallica is working on an actual Metallica album, because to me this is just an un-listenable record of pointless noise.
