The backlash against Metallica started during the Napster days. The music has become, old and tired.
Or maybe that is what has happened to their core audeince. Maybe they got older, and more tired.
Album sales have been...so-so....
I am not sure what to make of it yet. When I first heard the album is was horrible. But everything deserves a chance. A few more listens and I think it may grow on me.
P.S Zed--don't attack me for posting to an "old" thread. I just waited until I had the CD before making an opinion. hehehe!
"You know the world is going crazy when the best rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy, the tallest guy in the NBA is Chinese, the Swiss hold the America's Cup, France is accusing the U.S. of arrogance, Germany doesn't want to go to war, and the three most powerful men in America are named 'Bush', 'Dick', and 'Colon. Need I say more?"
Any opinions here on this band? Some people elsewhere are shitting on it because it's not Pantera, others like me love it top to bottom. I love the fact that not only is it full of heavy riffs, it's also full of *gasp* melodies.
