This is good.
This is not a return to the sound of Master of Puppets or other albums of their classic era. No band should sound the same on album after album. That is the path to irrelevance. On the other hand, no band should totally change their sound on every album that they do. That is the path to alienating their audience.
This is what they should sound like now. You can hear elements of their thrash metal days in the songs. You can hear elements of their AOR radio friendly days too. But at the same time, it is not a rehashing of any of those things.
The more that I have listened to this album, the more that I have liked it.
Good stuff here Maynard! Check it out love the bonus material
Metal is back
Here's a quick little timeline of Metallica. Kill em all, ride the lightning, and master of puppets were legendary. Then and justice for all was very ok. Then the black album was a beauty. Followed by 3 mediocre albums. Metallica then brings metal back to where it was with death Magnetic and hard wired. Truly this is as good if not better than the 80's Metallica. It's worth buying
What is this music?
One of the best albums in years. My favorite Metallica album since Master of Puppets, definitly a step up from Death Magnetic....I just hope we do not have to wait 8-10 years for another album!
Not crazy about it
I like the title track Hardwired, but other than that I really can't get into any of the other songs. Big drop from Death Magentic which I loved.
HALO ON FIRE!!!!
