    I certainly did, just as I said, it has to grow on you.
    I does sound like some older material.
    not bad, just very recognizable.

    Not bad, much better than the "metal country" of the last 8 years. Sounds like it could have been on "the black album". You can tell their getting older though, the drums aren't quite at poppy and the guitar isn't quite as intricate.

    you know, I lift to certain metallica songs
    and I do aerobic to certain metallica songs.
    but the older metallica, is most fondly remembered from
    the adult entertainment clubs in Canada and Korea and Thailand.
    It seems that no matter where you go, there is a pole dancer entertaining to the rapturous harmonies of Metallica and of course, a brass plated pole, LOL
    I want to something new from Megadeth soon, but that is another thread I suppose.

    Sounds kinda like they tried to reinvent Fade to Black. Its listenable but its too simple for metallica. they also need to use their old equipment, it sounds like they inherited rage against the machines instruments.

    i beats the hell out of saint anger, ill say that much.

    i used to be a huge metalica fan, but i dunno, this new stuff seems to be something that resembles the old stuff, but its just missing something. the last CD of theirs that i really liked was S&M. ill probably piss off a lot of people by saying this, but i still think S&M is some of the best symphonic metal out there. maybe it had to do with having the San Francisco orchestra playing with them.

    I understand they are getting older. I am too. Still, their first 5 albums rocked and everything that has come after that has failed to impress me. The first five albums kicked my ass right from the first note, they didn't have to "grow on me" for me to like them.

    I remember way-back-when I was at a park with some friends and I had my boombox blasting out the old radio station called Z-Rock. "The Four Horsemen" came on and I was like, "Who is that? I'm buying their album!" That tune kicked my ass from the very first moment I heard it. And I did just what I said I would do. I bought every album they produced (and loved them) up to and including the black album. But with the black album, I noticed a disturbing change.....their music was starting to lose the intensity. I haven't bought any of their albums since. Oh, I have them all, I just haven't "bought" them, if you know what I mean.

    Day That Never Comes sounds like they were trying to do fan service to their original fans, but it just doesn't have that special sound to it. The catchy rhythms they used to come up with just aren't there anymore. The raw rending sound of the distortion seems muted.

    It used to be that there was only a song or two per album that I didn't like, now it's quite the opposite....there is only a song or two per album that I do like....if I like any of the tunes at all. As far as I'm concerned, their music took a turn for the worse the day Cliff Burton died. For me, their last great album was ....And Justice For All. I think Cliff Burton was the true heart of the band.

    The intensity that used to flow from their fingertips is gone and just sounds forced now. I think they are drowning in their own fame and fortune anymore and are just producing albums for the sole purpose of making money, not for the love of metal they once had.

    The day they covered "Turn the Page" was the day any last vestiges of faith I had for them died. I mean that was a freakin' country song for god's sake! NO! NO! NO! DO NOT WANT!

    Metallica, the TRUE Metallica, is dead to me now.

    I would download the content of the next album if there were good workout songs on it, otherwise..but I am more interested in anything by Megadeth, or Paul Rogers, Frank Marino, Satch, Dream Theater, Brian May, Jimmy Page...
    you get the picture.

    I really like the song; it's their best in a long time. And it's nice to hear hammett actually contribute to a song, unlike the whole st anger album :p
