I LOVED Lou Reed's music and seeing him in concert was a highlight of my youth, and definitely a big fan of Metallica's earlier works as well ... .but right is right, and this is total shit. Your description couldn't be more accurate.

Like I was at least hoping for some solid riffs and drums from the band, but it sounds like a YouTube beat made in like 2 minutes at most.


danarbok

the drums sound so awful; badly mixed, the timing feels off even though I'm sure it's been quantized to hell since Lars can't drum for shit


CyptidProductions

There's a reason this is often ranked as one of the worst metal albums ever recorded and certainty the worst Metallica album. It comes off as an atonal mess because the abstract spoken work poetry clashes so bad with the generic metal riffs the band laid down for it


grinchnight14

They sound like a preset in a producing program

The 'reception' portion of the wiki page for this album is full of gold > "If the Red Hot Chili Peppers acoustically covered the 12 worst Primus songs for Starbucks, it would still be (slightly) better than this.

I still haven't heard this disaster of an album, saving it for a rainy day. Though I can easily imagine how it sounds. James's voice sounds good as the singer for Metallica. That's it. His voice stands out and sounds shitty for really anything else he's ever tried, especially if he goes too hard with too many "whoahwhoah"s or "yeaharayarah"s.


grinchnight14

I haven't listened to the full album either. I might one day, one day.

controversial opinion: i’m a metallica fan and this shit slaps


grinchnight14

I bet in the future more will be like you

Nah, fam. Lou Reed knew exactly what he was doing here. Scope out Velvet Underground and then his solo stuff. Dude invented alternative music.


grinchnight14

Still wonder why James agreed to say "I am the table" though lol.


SiddharthaSuburbia

Art's all about taking risks.


grinchnight14

And you make art on tables sometimes, I get it all now.


senor_fartout

Still wondering why Lou Reed didn't do this with a band like Sunn 0))) or the Melvins or fuck even babymetal.


grinchnight14

Him and Babymetal would've been a huge ball of chaos and while it might not have been really much of my thing, I'd at least listen for the insanity that would've been.
