It takes a (possible destructive, most likely delusional) amount of confidence and ambition to make music like this, knowing (they must have known) how it would be received.

Or maybe no-one knew, and the problem with the record industry is that everyone who works in it is so stupid they should be placed under 24 hour supervision lest they forget how to swallow and then die while driving and kill children when their car crashes.

Anyway, this record has some pretty good music, and Metallica can be respected for doing something so atypical of them. There is no reason for them to do something like this. They risked a lot, and I respect them for it. I'm mystified that this record was made, and I can't believe it was released, and I suspect it may be a joke, but I respect Loutallica more than Coldplay, Kanye, and Lana Del Ray, but not more than Sugar Ray because I am Mark McGrath.
Here I was thinking you were one of the more level-headed EYKIW posters. This is the stupidest thing I've ever read! You like a shit album more than a good one (Coldplay, Kanye, Lana Del Ray) because a bunch of old, irrelevant musicians made something atypical and that translates as having balls?

I think redhill had more credibility with his Morrissey-Satellite of Love-360 connection.

Here's the first (hopefully only) music video from the album. According to Reed, it's the "best music video ever made". Ummmmm........no.

Video: Lou Reed and Metallica – “The View” (directed by Darren Aronofsky) Consequence of Sound

My post is largely in jest, and I am rather scathing towards Loutallica. However, I do have more respect for them than Coldplay because the latter bunch of souless whiners have become more and more bland and pathetic with each record, and Lulu at least has a couple good riffs and grooves. Hell, I respect Nickleback more than Coldplay. Coldplay make those guys seem clever and adventurous!

The list is really a bit of rhyme joke (LDR I neither respect nor disrespect, since she has three average songs).

As for Metallica being irrelevant, I think you should talk to the 100,000 terrifyingly intense people at Rock In Rio. Lets see a festival crowd react like that to U2.

I'm not much of Metallica fan, btw.

Sorry, I'm rather cranky tonight. I didn't know it was a joke, because I think there are people who say that and do actually mean it.
