Earlier today, rock legend Lou Reed passed away at the age of 71. One of the forefathers of rock and roll, his work in the Velvet Underground. and then as a solo artist, is deified by many. However, his last recorded work was 2011’s Lulu, a collaboration with Metallica. The double album was long, pretentious, and hated universally by critics, yet both Reed and Metallica stood by the concept album. And while there is certainly much more influential and listenable music by Reed, this isn’t the website to find that definitive list on. We thought it’d be fitting to post Lulu. Rest in piece, Lou.
