A 30-second preview of the much-discussed Lou Reed/Metallica collaboration has surfaced, and it sounds like about what you'd expect/fear. It's from a song called "The View," and it's basically just Reed talking over Metallica-sounding riffs. It's bearable for 30 seconds, but considering that some songs on the record go on like this for as long as 19 minutes (!), well, this sure will be interesting, won't it?
If this whets your appetite, the so-called "Loutallica" record Lulu comes out Nov. 1.
