Metal Machine Music subtitled The Amine β Ring is the fifth studio album by American rock musician Lou Reed, released as a double album in July 1975 by RCA Records. A departure from the rest of his catalog, the album features no songs or even recognizably structured compositions, eschewing melody and rhythm for modulated feedback and guitar effects, mixed at varying speeds by Reed. In the album's liner notes, Reed claimed to have invented heavy metal, and asserted that Metal Machine Music was the. Lou Reed released 'Metal Machine Music' in July 1975. After the release of Metal Machine Music in July 1975, it was much, much worse. Time hasn't healed, salvaged, redeemed or vindicated the album in the decades since its release. It's just as abrasive, confrontational, controversial and difficult to listen to now as it was then. It didn't sound ahead of its time in 1975, and it sure doesn't sound ahead of its time now. Metal Machine Music sounds like a self-indulgent mess designed with one purpose in mind: To piss people off. Reed was getting pretty good at it by the time he went into the studio to record his fifth solo album. Metal Machine Music seems a bit less startling today, now that bands like Sonic Youth and the Boredoms have created some sort of context for it, but it hasn't gotten any more user friendly with time - while Thurston Moore may go nuts on his guitar like this for three or four minutes at a stretch, Metal Machine Music goes on. Lou Reeds 1975 album has been called one of the worst albums ever made. The truth is it is the product of genuine love and passion, still exhilarating and bursting with possibility four decades on. For a good 15 years after its 1975 release, Metal Machine Music, a double album of avant-garde noise put out by a rock legend who was only starting to get his commercial due, was discussed as a gesture more than as music. Explanations for its existence proliferated. Some said it was Lou Reeds attempt to get out of a record contract, or a fuck-you to fans who only wanted to hear his most popular songs. Metal Machine Music sometimes abbreviated MMM is an album by Lou Reed. It was originally released as a two-disc LP by RCA Records in 1975. It was reissued on a single compact disc by BMG in 1998 and again by Buddah Records in 2000. As a radical departure from the rest of Reed's catalog, Metal Machine Music is generally considered to be either a joke, a grudging fulfillment of a contractual obligation, or an early example of noise music. Reed himself has said of the album I was serious about it. I was also really, really stoned. In the album's liner notes he claimed to. This new version of Metal Machine Music is even more transparent, instrumentally pure and radical than the shortened 2007 release Live recordings from concerts in Rome and Reggio Emilia, Italy, mixed and mastered by Rashad Becker. A real sound experience. 180gr 2xLP, gatefold sleeve incl. download code. RecordVinyl Digital Album. Includes unlimited streaming of Lou Reed Metal Machine Music via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more. Sold Out. In fact, Metal Machine Music is definitely a good platform to start listening to noise music. However, it's still been done better. I like Lou Reed but this album isn't really that great. Listen to the first five minutes of it and thats basically all the album is, layers upon layers of feedback. It is executed rather well but I definately wouldn't call it a classic
