Yet another over priced photo album set of one the the worst albums ever recorded. During the epk interviews Lars, James, Kirk and Reed hit key points that describe this album perfectly: unstructured, effortless, one take, challenges fans (FU Lars), the post black album Metallica stamp, no afterthought, incoherent, just went with it, different territory, in the moment, totally different realm, recorded right then and there, no re-working .....more like pandora's toilet. Watch the EPK even metallica knows it sucks. This is the sales pitch' to sell dog poop, don't be fooled it's terrible. The View is probably the best song on this album and that my friends it sad....very very sad. This album makes St. Anger look like Master of Puppets, I'm dead serious. Listen to this piece of garbage on the loutallica website before you waste your money. If you could actually stomach listening to "The View" track just be warned that the whole album gets worse and worse and stays in the same vein as that song. This album is Incoherent, drunken babbling over recycled, repeated rock riffs that goes on and on and on and on. The vocals suck, the lyrics are laughable, James is a table, and the riffs are garbage. As stated this is one of the top 5 worst albums ever created. I can't believe this garbage was even released......it's insulting to music and any music fan. There are lots of albums out right now that destroy this garbage: Evile, Warbringer, Megadeth, Skeletonwitch, etc. spend your cash on good music and support good music, don't support this trash or they will keep making it as they will just keep going making crap music with no effort because they know fans will buy it.
