Boring track. Another wasted opportunity.

What I understand from this article: "The album is ****ing shit, but Metallica can't do anything else, so you better have a very open mind because it is what it is".

For me the one issue i have with Metallica on the last few albums....the intros are way too long.
Its ok if a song comes up on random or in a playlist but stick the album on and its a hard listen after several songs.

I think this is what the review is saying...its a hard listen as we have loads of long songs with long intros.

Im looking forward to it but Metallicas latest stuff has become music you really have to be in the mood for.

Ive enjoyed what ive heard but know that there will be times when i cant be arsed with it.

Agreed, I'm let down as well. Too long and it never takes off.

What do you think of the new album? some nice surprises, but the songs are too long.

Some songs are growing on me. And that's cool.

It has loads of interesting parts and lots I enjoy. However, I don't think I really love one song all the way through. Although, I am mostly still comparing against the classic albums which is just unfair at this point. If I put it in persepctive of these being 60 years old, it is an impressive album. I can't think of other bands of their size and age that can still more or less compete with newer bands in their genre. Even so, there is no instant classic song here or even one I am desperate to hear when I see them next.

My problem with songs is that the structures are too long and sometimes it slows down. Making them shorter or less repetitive would have been great. Hardwired got a better balance on that.

You're right, although I think it is the reptitivness and not neccesarily songs slowing down or being too long. I mean Justice had that sort of vibe but was so dynamic that it worked and became a classic. This new collection of songs lacks the same dynamism so songs become repetitive.

I do not hate the album because at the end of the day it is not poor or badly done. I just find it an odd mix of excellent and bland, and it swings betwee both in a single song.

I agree, and I think this album will grow with time.

Here you can see how the experience of a song like Inamorata improves, making some cuts in those repetitive parts.


It just flows better for me.

its the first album since the Black album that I instantly like - i did like most of Hardwired but dont like Death Magnetic or St Anger.

Theres some old and new Metallica on this and I think thats why its so good. Of course some songs are too long but thats Metallica.
