This review is from: Death Magnetic (Audio CD)
Over 15 years without giving the fans what they want was wilful and determind though not exactly praiseworthy. We have put up with double covers albums, hard rock drivel, and therapy fallout albums. WE WANT THRASH! And FINALLY Metallica have listened and delivered!
Kicking off with 'That Was Just Your Life' Metallica fans can jump for joy. The riffs are back, so too are the snarled lyrics, pumping bass and thick production. Not to mention the great songs. 'All Nightmare Long' & 'Broken, Beat & Scarred' are the epitome of modern thrash metal and the more you listen the more you wonder why these guys wasted their talent through all of the Nineties.
Even 'Unforgiven III' is a good song, despite my initial fears.
OK, so theres a few downers - the band could definately have made more of new-ish bassist Rob Trujillo's phenomenal talents, some of the riffs are interchangeable between songs and can be samey and penultimate instrumental track 'Suicide & redemption' drags on a bit too long.
All in all though, Metallica have returned with the goods and i can't wait to see these songs live!
