The playing is actually pretty good on this.. good enough to make me want to listen to it and enjoy it.. as opposed to a lot of their material post Justice. Other than the incredibly distorted and compressed sound, this is a really good " musicaly" album. Kirk flat out rocks with the riffs and solos. and James's vocals are clear and powerful, even Lars's drumming is actualy good..
Overall a really good Metallica album..piss poor sound, victim of the loudness war I guess..
My tweaked GH3 version sounds really good as oposed to my retail CD version, which I don't listen to anymore.
