1 stars "Lulu", One real mess of horrible vocals, stupid infantile lyrics, horrible solos and overall guitar playing, very boring melodies, and disgusting drumming. This album is one of the most hated albums of all times, I think that it is for a reason. I really don't know what Metallica's band members were thinking to themselves when they took Mr. Lou Reed from Velvet Underground, and made this piece of garbage. After listening to this album you can confidently say that, this is it, Metallica is a sold out band, making some poser-like "metal" together with a singer which did a very bad job, in vocals, lyrics writing and more... I can't listen to this album without being very sad about what happened to one of my ex-favorite bands, what happened to masterpieces like "Master Of Puppets", "Orion"," Call Of Ktulu", it is really hard for me to think about the current Metallica, a poser pop-metal band, with some of the worst lyrics that Iv'e ever heard, like in " Brandenburg Gate", the song starts with some strumming of chords, then proceeds to some very raspy and oldman-like singing of Lou Reed with the lyrics: "I would cut my legs and tits off when I think of Boris Karloff and Kinski In the dark of the moon" those lyrics are making no sense, I couldn't even realise what are those stupid lyrics are about, are they about Lou Reed cutting his tits and legs when he thinks about some Russian guys? Or like in songs like "The View" lyrics like: " I am the table, I am the view, I am all this" or "I am the tablet", yes, of course that this song has a little more heavy, less stupid melody, but still, it only includes some very simple riffs and fills, with very stupid lyrics and I really don't like it. The only thing that I can think about when I am listening to this album is, where are you, Metallica, what happened to you for god's sake?!

My Overall rating for this album is 1/100 This album is just horrible, a complete piece of garbage.
