"Lulu" features a mix of art-rock and heavy metal.
Today, show regular NPR music critic Ann Powers tells us about growly old men. Tom Waits' 17th studio album "Bad As Me" nicely fits into his oeuvre. Also, Lou Reed and Metallica are teaming up for "Lulu." The collaboration was inspired by the Lulu plays, which also inspired the 1929 silent film "Pandora's Box." The album is not as controversial, but is sure to keep you interested with its unique sound.
