I've been reading alot about this "new, reborn" Metallica. Needless to say, it sure as hell has gotten my attention. I am extremely looking forward to hearing their new album.
We'll see. I totally lost respect for Selloutica, between the dismal quality of load and re-load, not to mention Lars becoming a whiney anti-napster RIAA whore. But if they can actually turn all that around and put out a good album, I'll listen. I don't trust them enough to make it a blind purchase, but I'll give it a chance.
Sounds interesting. I'll definitely be picking it up, and have high hopes, but am keeping my expectations realistic.
Well after hearing their collaboration with Ja Rule then I know that the above statement is 100% BS. I don't even think they can play as fast as they did in the 80's.
Um, what day is it today?
I hope this is true because Metallica's best album since ....And Justice for All was by far Garage Inc. Black Album had some great songs but some real crappy ones as well. Load and Re-load......yuck. -Dean-
This is definitely starting to capture my interest, but I will definitely wait to hear some of the songs on the radio and if this is true, I'll wait for the Load & Re-Load fans to unload their copies at the local used shop and pick it up. Metallica will never again see $1 from my pocket no matter how good the music is.
I really hope the above reviews are true, because songs like that are the only things that can make me buy a Metallica album again. I sold both Load and Reload, and haven't bought anything since "Metallica". But if they manage to get back to playing fast, complex metal like in the earlier days, I'm there. /Mike
See i feell kinda odd piping in here but i actually like load and reload, not as much as their other albums of course, but load and reload were good. it seems like many people disliked load and reload because they were sucha departure from Metallica of the 80's. anyway i cant wait to listen to the new album even if that article is a load of garbage. I wonder if it will ahve a day date release on DVD-A?
I've been hearing that this album is completely different than anything they've done before but we'll have to wait for the release. Also, Metallica just announced that they are giving a free dvd with the album. It's going to contain a live performance of all the songs from the album. I thought that was pretty cool of them to include that for free when they could easily charge for it.
Indeed, the only thing they have put out in the last eleven years that I even began to like was Garage Inc....well....not including that cover compilation's version of Turn The Page..brrrr. "Turn the Paaaaaaage...YAH!"
Kevin, I'll agree with you on Turn the Page...... However, songs like Astrology, So What, and Sabbra Cadabra more than make up for it. -Dean-
Metallica will never again see $1 from my pocket no matter how good the music is. Screw them. They totally mishandled the napster situation, and in return lost all the respect I had for them. Makes you wonder why Newstead really left the band.
Sorry, Eric. I forgot to hit quote on your comment.:b
As Still a Huge Metallica fan....they are still my favorite band...i will say this... i didnt hate load, and i didnt hate reload. were they in MOP or AJFA class.....quite simply no. They were good in what they were....nothing more nothing less. DO i have high hopes for this album, of course, and after reading the review i am pretty pumped up. I'll be there the night before release or the day of...and will be picking up my copy of St Anger with great anticipation. I think people should know going into this is that Metallica will never make another MOP or AJFA or RTL or anything like that, this record like everything else will be different than the last. just my 2 cents, a die hard 'tallica Fan.
Exactly right Alan, thats what I love about Tallica, they evolve, for some reaon it seems many metal fans dont liek to see evolution, but with most otehr bands like U2 for example evolution is a good thing.
I'm another one that is looking forward to this album as a huge Metallica fan and hope it is a return to real METAL for them. I have to apologize for this but people who are up in arms about this band due to their stance on Napster are ignorant. I agree that Napster was a huge threat to the recording industry and was taking money out of the hands of the people who are working their asses off to produce music. Sure a band like Metallica is established and they've made shit loads of money over the years, but what about up and coming bands and the people out there writing material, these are the ones that it is truly hurting. In a day and age where we can download near perfect copies of a song and burn to CD I think every artist should have stood up against Napster. I can see the argument where someone says that I'm downloading to see if I like it before I buy it. I still disagree as there are many stores out there that will let you listen to a CD before you buy it. I look at it this way. You go to work everyday and perform a service and you expect to be paid for it. Musicians are working for the same reason and they deserve our money. If you don't like it, don't buy it. If you do like it, then go out and buy it, otherwise it's just plain stealing. Sorry for the long rant, but I had to get it off my chest.
I am going to jump in and agree with keith, what he said is completly true, and if all music was pirated then we would quickly degenerate to a time when all artists would ahve to rely on rich patrons to keep them alive to produce their art. and i dont care what you say if you have someone as a patron, you are making the music they want you to make, it removes much of the artistic component and we would lose the variety that makes music in this century so great.
