    Metallica Death Magnetic

    So I have listened to a little bit of it after purchasing it and wondered if anyone else had picked it up yet and what they thought of it. There is an Unforgiven 3 track on it and it's almost a combination of their earlier and more modern stuff it seems to me like.

    I heard several songs from it, and quite frankly im not too impressed. A couple of the songs sounds like metallica was trying to turn pop. I think their best work was kill em all...their newer stuff just isn't what I'd like to hear, but thats just me.

    It's decent. Better than St.Anger, but nowhere near the awesomeness of the Black Album.

    I actually refuse to listen to it.
    I only heard a couple songs from the St. Anger debacle and it was more than enough to ruin Metallica for me forever...Load and ReLoad were bad enough... now they're just crap.
    Kinda depressing since they were one of the greatest bands ever in my opinion.

    I had no problem with load and reload. St Anger was horrible and this album isn't among there best in this modern day I look for it to catch alot of hell.

    Justice was the last great album for them.
    Load and Reload would have been great if they had changed the name of the band.
    The music is rather good, however it's not 'metallica', hell compare anything they've put out in the last 15 years to anything from puppets or lightning, hell even garage days.... no frikkin contest

    the problem is that they tried to go back to their old sound, unfortunately, it just comes out really weak. I mean, this album might have been ok in like 1988, but for 2008 it is out of place. They really should have expanded on their sound from Load/Reload and taken the music a little more modern, instead we have a bunch of 40 year olds trying to sound like they were when they were 20 and in their hayday.

    in fact, if you listen to every song you can hear a piece of another, better song of theirs in there.

    the only song i really like is the instrumental, I actually think it's a really cool song.

    I can't wait for the Rick Rubin produced ZZ Top Album!!!!!!!!!!
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    Agree with what lucifuge has said pretty much, except Megadeth were always better, and i actually kinda liked Reload for what it was.

    Totally wasnt up to the par of Puppets and Justice though. Those are the only three albums by 'tallica i can actually stand to listen to.

    Heard some clips of this new one and meh, nothing stood out as particularly memorable.

    Well... apparently my wife didn't get the memo that I think metallica stinks now... because she bought me a copy of Death Magnetic.
    I am currently finishing up my second session of listening to the entire album and...... it's crap.
    pure. unadulterated. crap.
    the instumental isn't bad... so I say that Metallica should become the rock/metal version of Manheim Steamroller.
    I could get behind that.... at least there wouldn't be poorly written lyrics and horrible bridges.
    So, my wife payed $8 for this cd, if anyone wants it, I'll sell it to you for $3 plus shipping.
    Hell.... send me a blank cd & a stamp and I'll copy it for ya, just in an effort to piss Lars off.

    i have to admit, the album is growing on me after a few listens. I would say about 5 out of the 10 songs I really like, the others I don't care for.

    Why would Jason Newsted leave the band?
    and or why did he get booted?

    I have listened to it a little more and it still isn't among their best or even close but it is growing on me. Really beginning to like Unforgiven 3.

    That's why I said it was anti-climatic, how did those guys know she didn't have a bomb strapped to herself under that gown? I would have at least fired a warning shot into the ground next to her....
