So my gf said she wanted to see Metallica this year, so I bought us tickets. Neither of us have really been "fans" per se....least of all myself. Anyway, the tickets came with copies of the new album. Guess what? I really kind of dig it. Sonically, its pristine. I have to wonder...if it appeals to me, maybe hardcore fans have a reason to turn their backs. But either way, I'm looking forward to the show. Spit Out the Bone is just massive. And there's a nice mix of cheesy fantasy "metal" lyrics and some decent real life stuff.
I listened to Kill em All today for the first time. Sounded like "baby Metallica" to me. Endearing, but probably won't be revisited too often.
