  • I agree with the following posters too, the Holy Biblia is great.

  • David Bowie on Lou Reed & Metallica's Lulu: ‘Listen, this is Lou’s greatest work. This is his masterpiece. Just wait, it will be like Lou Reed’s 1973 album Berlin. It will take everyone a while to catch up.’ All you metalheads, haters & snobs just don't know how great it is! Reed pushed Metallica to record like the early albums, no endless re-takes, over-dubs, recorded in a few weeks not months or years like the records they have done since the 90's! Experiential & extreme in pushing the ideas of music & lyrics, Reed's vocals are such avalanche of words, almost neverending or endless! Subject matter about a young girl who does embody both elements of female sexuality's dualism, mother & whore, then who's murdered by Jack the Ripper! All off-course is sung by a 70 year old man which is based on an opera from 30's Nazi Germany which the original composer didn't live to see completed & performed after his dead incomplete mainly played by jazz bands! It was very unpopular at that time too!
  • I'm listening (not scrobbling it) to Lords of Summer (First Pass Version) and it's subpar. I hope stuff off their new album will be better.
  • Load is awesome, pls.
  • Best album to start with is where it all began: Jump In The Fire!
  • @InSearchOfTruth master of puppets definitely.
  • Lulu FTW!!!
  • @InSearchOfTruth Lulu with Lou Reed, it's best the thing they have done from decades!!!
  • Best album to start with exists within your own confined result of a coin-toss between Master of Puppets & Justice. Heads means Puppets.
