iTunes Editors’ Notes

Lulu is a story of a young woman who’s seen quite a bit. Originally conceived as a Berlin theatre production by avant-garde director Robert Wilson, Lulu is an interesting collaboration between two iconoclasts, Lou Reed and Metallica. It’s more in line with a Lou Reed album; he narrates and sings most of the material here, with Metallica’s James Hetfield providing backing vocals and occasional lead-vocal relief. The collaboration’s real benefit is that it gives Reed his best backing band in years. Metallica serve his material, putting seasoned chops into what was, for the band, a very quick recording process. “Iced Honey” is the album’s most accessible moment. “Cheat on Me”, “Dragon” and “Junior Dad” all deserve their epic lengths. Deliberately squeamish moments are played up for maximum impact, but it’s the music’s strategic ugliness in spots (“Little Dog” makes efficient use of Reed’s angry-old-man bitterness) that makes this an uncompromising triumph. Lulu is closer in spirit to Reed’s Velvet Underground days than anything Metallica have attempted.

食わず嫌いは損をする

誰もが、違和感を覚えそうな、
伝説の男の声との邂逅。

生粋のどちらのファンにも
受け入れられない危険を孕んだこの作品は、
聴く者の既成概念など、
何億光年も置き去りにするくらい

闊歩する、90年代に見たかった。

なぜ!?

最近のメタリカじゃ聴けない極悪リフがなぜかここにある。

Awesome!!

初期のメタリカのスラシャーなリフにLouの独特なヴォーカルは誰にも真似できない。
最初は違和感を感じたが毎日聞いているとこのアルバムにハマってしまう!!

ジャンル問わず音楽が好きな人は聞くべし!!

The career of Lou Reed defied capsule summarization. Like David Bowie (whom Reed directly inspired in many ways), he made over his image many times, mutating from theatrical glam rocker to strung-out junkie to avant-garde noiseman to straight rock & roller to your average guy. Few would deny Reed's immense importance and considerable achievements. As has often been written, he expanded the vocabulary of rock & roll lyrics into the previously forbidden territory of kinky sex, drug use (and...
