"Lou Reed is probably having a right good laugh about it all, while Metallica now have a very deep hole to crawl out of.... Not only is 'Lulu' the worst thing any of the players have been involved in, it's quite possibly a candidate for one of the worst albums ever made."

"It's not as if drugs or alcohol can be blamed anymore. Perhaps if this album was released in the late 1980s or early 1990s... Maybe history will judge it less harshly, but as of this moment the project is a total failure."

"'Lulu' is essentially a piece of shock art that's littered with vulgarity both lyrical and musical. It reads like a misguided Bukowski impersonation and sounds like field recordings taken from Guitar Centers across America."
