Damn you, Klosterman!

I just came across this review of the Lou Reed/Metallica Album “Lulu” by the one and only Chuck Klosterman

Go and read it this moment, it will make you a better person.

First off, I feel great that people like this are out there. Klosterman is still thrashing through the dense jungle with his magical word related machete, stalking the predator type invisible beast, and he is probably on fire while doing so, literally, and has no plans to stop, drop, and roll.  You know what I mean.  It’s as if the thoughts he conveys are slightly out of reach to normal folk.  Anyway, what I’m saying is, I want to steal some shit from him.

He makes such an interesting point though, this is the type of music industry we asked for.  No label wanted something like this to come out.  No manager heard this and thought it was a good idea.  For some reason, these people put this thing out there for all to hear, open to all the ridicule the internet provides.  Can someone please revisit the “Money Good Napster Bad” era cartoon style for this?

Anyway, I’m not going to rehash his points, give it a read.
