Ok, Eddie, as far as the new Metallica song is concerned....I'll just say, I hope it's not the first single. It's not a bad song but it has not a single hook to grab you by the balls. The song is Ok, it's like they took some elements from the "Justice" album and some ideas from "The Black Album" and came up with this new track. Bob Rock would have widdled it down to maybe 5:00 mins instead of close to 8:00 mins. That to me, would of been ok because I feel the solo's and extra's from the new track, less interesting than what was done on say "Puppets" or "Justice".
Don't make a song near 8:00 just for the sake of it. I hope they've come up with some better tracks, Although this one is ok....but just ok.
I go back so far... I'm in front of me!
