4.0 out of 5 stars A nice surprise, 15 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Heavy Metal Music (Audio CD)
I recently bought 2 new CD's - Megadeth 'Super Collider' and this album. When I first listened to 'Super Collider' I thought it was not too bad and couldn't understand why everyone had given it such bad reviews. When I first listened to 'Heavy Metal Music' I thought it was poor and couldn't understand why it had received so many good reviews on Amazon. Fast forward a mere week and 'Super Collider' is back in it's case as it got very boring very quickly. On the other hand, Heavy Metal Music is still being played. In fact now a month later I am still listening to it on a daily basis. When I first heard the album I thought the songs were a bit tedious and unoriginal and the lyrics really lame. However, the more I have listened the more it has grown on me. I don't think there is a bad song on the album, the sound quality and mixing is excellent, the songs are brutal in places but never over the top, there are are moments of great musicianship and intricate harmonies along with pure detuned power chord heaven. The lyrics in places are pretty rubbish but at the end of the day, the vocals are there just to give a bit of direction to the heavy metal smorgasbord that is served up alongside it.
Really pleased for Jason - if Metallica had knocked out something like this recently I think the crtics would be, quite rightly, hailing a new era for them. As it is Newsted will have a limited audience, but I for 1 am glad I took a punt and bought this album. If you do buy it, just make sure you don't dismiss it after a few listens.
