If they don't call it Metallica Machine Music I'm not buying it.

Verily, for this knight be'ith uncertain of this musical goulash of minstrels Metallica and Louis Reed. Mayhaps this announcement be'ith made in jest? Such as ye California gubernatorial campaign of goodly Gary Colmeman?

This post now concludeth!

This actually sounds like it could be very cool.

yeah, i'm not particularly a fan of metallica or lou reed, so i'd never buy this, but it would be really interesting to hear the results.

hopefully this will lead to other collobarations, like megadeth and bob dylan, anthrax and barry manilow, or slayer and yanni.

Anthrax and Barry Manilow? Pray it doesn't happen, because the universe would implode.

Barry Manilow and Barney the Purple Dinosaur? Somewhat more compatible, but unlistenable.

Barney the Dinosaur and Prince? The purpleness would really gunk up the galactic works. Pray it doesn't happen, either.

In case anyone but me actually gives a shit here's the official work-in-progress website about said whatnot which will be released October 31 to the world and November 1 for us North American folk because we're not good enough or something:

30-second preview of "The View":



It basically sounds like what I figured Metallica with Lou Reed would sound like. I'm definitely buying this shit come November 1st. If it ends up a failure it ought to be an interesting one.

It reminds me of something Lou Reed once said. "Anyone who makes it to side three of Metal Machine Music is dumber than me."

I could see myself jamming to that if Lou Reed would shut the fuck up. That was sort of annoying with him just talking over the music.

I pretty much had the opposite reaction. I thought the Hetfield parts were more distracting because the lyrics really don't fit his vocals. This song is probably shitty, but I can't really tell. I know I'm probably not supposed to laugh at "I AM THE TABLE!" but I am. But in a good way. I'm sure I will get much entertainment out of this album.

And Lars really can't play the drums worth shit. He never was that good to begin with, but he's gotten really sloppy in his old age.

In the younger days of the zone, there would have already been 145 posts accompanying this and several pics with Hetfield with Cagle's head photoshopped on top. Ah... memories.
