It's terrible. In defence of the samples/streaming/leak, people might argue; - It's not a Metallica album, it's a Lou Reed album. - Metallica have earned the right to do whatever they want. - Lou Reed is a genius legend, and the rest of us just don't 'get it'. Bullshit! - It IS a Lou Reed AND Metallica record. It says so on the box! - Metallica can also choose NOT to do things. Surely someone in the Metallica camp must have noticed during the writing, rehearsal, recording, production processes that this thing sucks. - How can people praise Lou Reed, and then mock William Shatner? Was Lou even trying on this? Is he taking the piss? There is nothing genius or legendary about Lulu. Nope, nothing.
