Uproxx: The Definitive Album Of 2020 Is Lou Reed And Metallica’s ‘Lulu’
Soon after the country went into lockdown in March, I found myself listening obsessively to Lou Reed. I’ve been a fan for years, of course. A music critic without intimate knowledge of the Velvet Underground has to turn in their gun and badge, post-haste. But I had never fully explored every dark nook and kinky cranny of Reed’s solo catalogue. Which is strange, because I am fascinated by deeply flawed albums that are both enhanced and undone by the perversity of their creators. And virtually nobody in rock history is more perverse, or has more deeply flawed and highly fascinating records, than sweet Lou.
