"'Death Magnetic' is HANDS DOWN the best METALLICA album in 20 years. This is the CD I've been waiting for them to make since '…And Justice For All'. And thumbs up to them for doing the first REAL METALLICA instrumental in 20 years since 'To Live Is To Die' (if you don't count DREAM THEATER's 'Stream of Consciousness'). Welcome back, boys."
Por cierto, estoy dijo en el mes de junio sobre lo que se podía esperar del disco (coincido totalmente sobre lo de "Load" y su cubo de desperdicios):
"Well, the new direction, who knows? Until the album comes out, I have no idea what that direction is. 'St. Anger', which took a beating from a lot of people, personally, I would take that album over 'Load' and 'Reload'
any day of the week. You know it had its faults. It had its flaws. The
production was weird and the vocal melodies were weird, but at least it
had a spirit. At least they were attempting to get heavy again and play
long songs again. The formula they used in the '90s with 'Load' and 'Reload', it was just not my cup of tea. It was way too polished, way too bluesy and straight-ahead, so 'St. Anger' to me was a nice step in the better direction, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the next one."
