Lulu

Genre: Rock; Lead Performer: Lou Reed; Music Label: Warner Bros.

The good news: This clash of the ornery titans, inspired by a bleak German theater piece about a doomed dancer-turned-prostitute, isn’t nearly as alienating as Reed’s 1975 noise experiment Metal Machine Music. The other news: Even though headbangers can still toss up their devil horns to the buzz-saw crank of ”Mistress Dread,” the bulk of Lulu sounds like your dad’s drunk friend reciting his self-penned erotica over a melting ReLoad cassette.
