New releases from Lou Reed and Metallica, Wale, the Beach Boys and more
Lou Reed and Metallica (pictured) team up for an album that is already (justly, we think) getting some of the year's worst reviews, while D.C. rapper Wale releases his first set for Rick Ross' Maybach Music and the Beach Boys' lost classic "Smile" finally gets a proper release (and the bonus-laden box set treatment). We've got full reviews of those releases as well as quick takes on the latest from Susan Boyle, Miranda Lambert, Florence + the Machine, Tyrese and more, inside the gallery.—Andy Hermann and Lucy Mueller, Metromix
Lou Reed and Metallica, "Lulu"
The Beach Boys, "Smile"
