Good in concept, but executed so poorly
Listen, the concept of mixing metal with spoken word isn't a bad idea. I mean Slint were able to mix spoken word vocals with rock music excellently. But this was just executed so badly. Metallica and Lou Reed just have no musical chemistry whatsoever and that's why this album suffers so horribly. I admire their willingness to experiment, but new ideas aren't exactly good ideas.
Tied with I’m not a fan but the kids like it as the worst album ever made.
I am the table
That is the only good moment on this album of absolute trash.
Is this a joke?😂😂😂
This album is complete garbage. What were Metallica thinking?
It’s actually aged well
I hated this when it first came out, glad I grew up since then, because now I actually can really appreciate this.

A great Lou Reed album without Metallica, and a great Metallica album without Lou Reed, the two together, is a mess of rock and metal that shouldn’t have ever existed but the album has its moments(which are few) and it makes for an interesting album which has some laughably bad moments and some ok moments, not for people that like Lou Reed or Metallica but for people who will take a chance to listen to something different or just downright weird.
What a tragedy for guitarist:((((

I thought it was rad hearing this. Metallica's Crunchy Rock Riffs outside with Lou Reed's Mystical soft chewy vocal on the inside. Double the Awesome!!!!!
