Consequence of Sound

Lulu is essentially a piece of shock art that’s littered with vulgarity both lyrical and musical.

Beats Per Minute

The whole thing comes off as either an expensive major label joke or nigh-impenetrable high art concept.

PopMatters

... they come out with what may be the most disappointing album in a decade.

Pitchfork

Audacious to the extreme, but exhaustingly tedious as a result, its few interesting ideas are stretched out beyond the point of utility and pounded into submission

there's not much positive things i can say about this album.
maybe just one or two tracks in here that were actually kinda good. but other than that, this album is just... garbage..

Great piece of anti-music. One of the best things that late-period Reed produced. Metallica.
