I finally broke down and bought the new Metallica album--J&R Music had a sale on it for six bucks. Listened to it a couple of days ago and I must say I rather like it. Quality of sound issues aside, I'm so glad Kirk Hammett's guitar playing has been brought back to the forefront and the whole structure of the band's sound has been brought back to what we first loved--angry and complex. I can't help but think that the in-your-face compression actually works well with the constant attack of the music. . . I don't know, maybe not. . .

Anyway, thumbs up to the music!
