I couldn't help but cringe when I saw that cover. Seriously, it's even more tacky then anything you would see in Showgirls.

Well, my faith in Metallica died ages ago anyway. I only like the first four or five albums anyway.

You must be from texas cuz you don't sound like a steer, so that narrows it down to queer.

On a serious note, the artwork for LuLu sucks.

I'm actually very excited for this. Lou Reed is the man, he's just never had a great band backing him up. And we all know how great Metallica is (;

Death Magnetic got old fast; I'm glad they are doing something different. And the group picture is epic.

Well, for every one dissenter there's at least fifty fanboys who are more then willing to eat up any shit this band puts out. Like I said before, Metallica are total money whores these days.

Hello, Metallica, look at your album cover, now back to Master of Puppets, now back to Lulu, now back
to Ride the Lightning. Sadly, Lulu isn’t either one of them, but if you stopped collaborating with Lou
Reed and switched back to your old songwriting style, you could have a record that doesn't totally
suck. Look down, back up, where are you? You’re on Sputnik checking the rating for your latest album,
which is a 1. What’s in your hand, back at me. I have it, it’s an album designed by Ed Repka with
songs that you wish you could write. Look again, the album has now gone triple platinum. Anything is
possible when your band pulls its shit together and goes back to its thrash roots instead of [insert
everything Metallica has done wrong here]

I showed this to my girlfriend and her first reaction was, "Intravenous De Milo?" :-D

Anyway, everyone I'm holding out to hear this because I did earn back some regard for the old boys after Death Magnetic...but keep in mind this supposed to be a 90-minute soundtrack to a film called Lulu...it isn't like they all sat around and said, "Hey what should we call the next effort? How about Lulu?"

It doesn't help my confidence that I saw the Youtube of them performing "Sweet Jane" with Lou at the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame show a couple years ago and it was....um...well "bad" would be a fair assessment.

Let's all hope they really surprise everyone and pull off something interesting and artistic.

"Junior Dad"? I'm really curious as to the context of that song title. Maybe it's a Junior in high school or something who unexpectedly had a child. Maybe it's about a sub-par dad that can only be classified as "Junior". Maybe it's a midget dad.

The Part Where Lou Reed Sing is bit weird but James's part sounds Good, i think this would be a interesting Album. and from what i read on http://www.loureedmetallica.com/index.php
Lou wrote this songs inspired by German expressionist writer Frank Wedekind's plays "Earth Spirit" and "Pandora's Box" Metallica is Just playing the music and putting their touch on the arrangement. so although its not a Metallica Album i'm going to get it.
