    Lou Reed told New York magazine that the music he created with Metallica for a new project is "the best thing done by anyone, ever." Reed and 'Tallica re-recorded some of the music that Reed wrote as a score for the musical Lulu. "The version of the Lulu music I did with Metallica is awe inspiring," Reed said. "It's maybe the best thing done by anyone, ever. It could create another planetary system. I'm not joking, and I'm not being egotistical." We believe you, Lou! Interplanetary assessments and all.

    Reed said the album should be out by November, too.

    Well, there you have it. A date! Or a possible date. But if it does come out in November, it'll be the perfect gift for the music nerd in your life.

    Are you stoked to check out the Lou Reed/Metallica project?
