I have to admit I really didn't know what to think when I first learned that Metallica and Lou Reed had decided to get together to make the new record called "LULU."I knew it wouldn't sound like your straight up Metallica record, and had an idea it would lean more towards the cool darkness of Lou Reed. If you dig Lou, then I think you'll be pleasantly surprised as I was when I heard the first tune "The View."

The two Rock and Roll Hall of Famers have managed to combine classic Lou Reed poetry with the crunch of Metallica. It's different obviously, but I do salute these guys for having the 'man hood' to step outside the norm and put this project together.

Check out "The View" one of ten new tracks on "LULU" that will be released in North America on November 1st.
