Sounds good, thanks for posting.
Sounds pretty good to me.
Maybe youd be happier if they were doing the "bye bye bye dance" or something more up to date.
Its always good to hear musicians other than being forced to listen to entertainers for the last 8 years.
They need to change their name already. They haven't been Metallica in a long time. I'd rank this in between Load/ReLoad and St. Anger, which means it's not too good.
Load/ReLoad were decent compared to most stuff, and St. Anger was flat out awful. All of it fails completely compared to old Metallica.
Metallica hasn't recorded anything worth a damn since 1988. This new stuff is much better than their other late stuff, but the damage has been done.
The other one they've released to listen to off the album:
Sounds like St. Anger uke:
I was really hoping they come out with a good one but so far it looks like St. Anger II.
They've been "meh" since 1991.
Pretty much, except for S&M.
As bands get old right or wrong, they can't win and rarely can exceed early sucess as Radio play is no longer there for them.
Which is why when they're at the top of their game, they should split up.
It's not like it once was, with bands like the Rolling Stones; if a band changes sound, they're accused of selling out. If they don't change, they're accused of being one-trick ponies.
They should go off in different directions, with different musicians and get different input. Maybe they can get back together after a few years and see what the time away and different influences can do for them.
This sounds like the realization that their experiments weren't received well, so they'd best try to recapture that old lightning. Nothing remarkable and would have been easily forgettable on Ride the Lightning or Master of Puppets.
Another song release from the new album:
Regardless of the success or failure of this album, I'll go see them again if they grace my hometown.
They were an awesome garage rock band....
Now they are just a commercial, corporate-shilling lawyered up bunch of pansies.
Surprised they haven't started naming their songs after corporate sponsors yet.
Long way from Enter the Sandman.
Lars really ruined them for me. Him and St. Anger which was almost as bad as a George Michael CD.
the album leaked guys, and i must say its BADASS, a 10 minute insturmental song! There alot of "justice" in this album, your gonna be surprised
It can't be any worse than St. Anger :laugh2:
Metallica is one of my all time favorites. I really dont like any of the new stuff. BUT I do try and keep an open mind.
I would really like if they reinvented themselves in a way that Aerosmith did. Early Aerosmith is great.... the stuff that followed was pretty good also. A little more commercial - but they found a way.
Hope Metallica does too.
If we expect their new stuff to sound like their old stuff then we will never like the NEW stuff.
I've liked all their albums except for St. Anger. I know I'm in the minority on Load/Reload.
if anyone wants it pm me, i dunno what the policy on the forum about leaked material is
