The reactions to the first snippet preview of Metallica and Lou Reed’s joint album, Lulu, were so overwhelmingly negative (rightfully so) that I doubt anyone will be especially won over by this new preview. Why? Because it’s the same exact song, “The View,” except we’re now hearing 60 additional seconds. So now we’re hearing 90 total seconds of the track, which remains just as corny and, well, bad as when we first heard it. Maybe these guys are messing with us and somehow have something better up their sleeves elsewhere on the album. Or maybe it’s just going to be that disappointing.
You can stream the preview below. Lulu is due out Nov. 1.
