I don't know how could any Metallica fan complain about 'Death Magnetic', including the naysayers and whiners who have been calling them sell-outs since the video for 'One' was on rotation on MTV.

It's indeed the best Metallica album since 'The Black Album', and to some it might not be superior to the '84-'91 era of Metallica, but it's quite close.

Metallica fans are getting back what they've been asking for through all these years, heavier riffs, louder snares, longer guitar solos, and James screaming his lungs out.

I already got my ticket to see them live in January, and I seriously can't wait.

If it did, the album would have sucked just like 'St Anger'.

I got the album yesterday and its the first time Ive ever shed a tear to a Metallica album! Its fucking amazing. Track 1 is immense! And it wasnt just me either, nearly everyone in HMV had a copy. I think its gonna be a big seller. Definately on a parr with Lightening/Puppets.
Its what Metallica fans have been waiting for for years and theyre definately back to thier best.

Figures that this, as seemingly every other music related discussion here, turns into Treasure Movement stroking himself....

This is IMO the best album since "Ride the lightning". There is not a single weak track on it and all of them stands equally next to the "old Metallica" songs. I would go so far as saying this is the next best ´tallica album. I don´t have a clue why Treasure Moment commented on DM being poorly produced, sounds darn good to me. Why don´t you give them a call maybe you can drop some words of wisdom about how a proper album should be mastered. They´ve made music since you wore diapers so shut it! To leave Bob Rock was the best choice they´ve made in years and they seems to have found a new energy witch they had in the mid-80´s. Even the instrumental is fucking avesome, maybe not as good as ..(Pulling teeth) and Orion(I´ve got a instrumental fetish). I even love that they can "make fun of themselfes" by calling one track Unforgiven III...10/10 from me, and it keeps rolling in my player more often than "Cosmos".

I actually agree with Treasure Moment for a change!

Indeed it is the best thing they made since the black one, but most of this album is just one riff after another riff with not a single trace of inspiration. Only one or two tracks are actual compositions. The rest is just... one bar of this, one bar of that, one bar of this, one bar of something totally different and put it all together in an indeed weak mix.

The whole album feels and sounds like demo's with unfinished structures and unfinished vocal lines.

Some riffs are great indeed, but this is nothing more then jamming. I totally understand though that all the fans are happy about this. But that's only because all the previous albums were pure shite. That changes perception!

I'm afraid I have to give up on them by now... we will never hear the hungry, inspired Metallica of old back...

This album seriously kicks ass- it's AWESOME... Pity it's the only such great album released in September...

He´s a child witch can not see the difference between dreams and reality. I sure would like in denial like him if I produced that shitty music he does.
