Funny Photo: The Best Two-Sentence Review of Metallica and Lou Reed's Lulu Ever

Posted By on Fri, Dec 2, 2011 at 2:39 PM

Okay, so we don't think Metallica and Lou Reed's Lulu is as bad as many people do. But the San Rafael-recorded album has still inspired some fantastic shit-talking. The above review, which comes to us via Happy Place, is about as short, curt, and funny a description of the nearly 90-minute collaborative album as anything we've seen.

Really, how many albums come out every year that could be called "Probably the worst thing ever" -- and a great many people would be inclined to agree?

Yet, while we admire the concision employed here, we have to say that Lulu isn't quite the total disaster it's cracked up to be. Not quite.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
