Probably because of their shared release date and the competitive history between the bands, a lot of the negative comments on Lulu stories around here featured some variation on the theme, "I'm just going to buy Megadeth's new album instead."
With the release of Lulu coming up next Tuesday, Metallica and Lou Reed have posted a full, 13-minute EPK online, which you can check out below. The video features all five musicians discussing the making of Lulu, which will be released on November 1.

Yesterday, Amazon.de posted audio samples of all 10 tracks off the upcoming collaborative album from Lou Reed and Metallica. While the samples were taken down quickly, Loutallica were nice enough to post higher-quality samples of Lulu online, which you can check out below.
