"How do you say "Lulu was a failure on nearly all levels," then give it a 3.5 and say you're going to continue to revisit it? So paradoxical and makes no sense."



I embrace the flaws, because the whole thing is such a confusing bastardization of what an album should be. That fact compels me to listen again, as I believe there's something unique beneath it all worth the 87 minutes. Sure, just because it sounds "different" doesn't necessarily grant it being a great album (in most cases, it doesn't), but in the case of Lulu I believe it does.

If this isn't a contradictory sentence, I don't know what is.

'I was stoned out of my fucking skull. It made sense then.'

oh man, everything makes sense that way, even the teletubbies.

"And there lies the attraction, because within all of its unrelenting inadequacy, the film emits a surreal edge above even the most concrete standards of poor filmmaking."



Now translate that to Lulu and the music industry, and you've got it. The sarcastic fourth paragraph is that "surreal edge" the album has, a quality I believe grants a 3.5.

Sputnik, I'd like to report a glitch. There appears to be an option to rate this album higher than a 1. Kindly rectify this, thank you.

The problem with Lulu is the lyrics

And how Metallica thought this was a good idea

James' vocals are as bad as Lou's, that's another major problem

I think Tornado's comments are his last effort to tell us something is seriously wrong with him

It's not awful, it's just not all that great. Definitely not a 1, and I understand completely what Tornado is saying. It's what the Germans refer to as "schadenfreude." I'm still listening to it.

Right, I wrote this review to convince Sputnik I am slightly insane in hopes of making new friends on

the internet.
