Putting it out there, and it is a wacky, some might say KERAAZYY idea, but because people like their music? Just....throwing it out there.

Jesus Christ. People like music for all different reasons. Metallica would probably be pretty awesome if you wanted to go to a concert and head bang and rock the shit out. The Chemical Brothers would

I always wondered why Linekles never posted in the music forum and I guess it must be because he heard Lou Reed and Metallica and now assumes that’s what all music is like. Silly Linkles, not all

Thoughts?

I love the Metallica parts; I hate the Lou Reed parts. That pretty much sums up my thoughts on the project as a whole. Hopefully when the CD 'drops', it won't have been such a waste of time and I have a feeling that I'll like it overall. I'd like to hear a song where Lou isn't talking, because it's just awkward in The View.

It's....odd. I wouldn't say I dislike it, but I don't outright like it either....it sounds more like someone just reading poetry over rock music. The styles don't really mesh, it's more like oil and water.

My brother, however, absolutely despises it with a passion. He genuinely thinks it's one of the worst songs he's ever heard.

I love the Lou Reed parts; I hate the Metallica parts. Nah, I wouldn't really say hate, but it doesn't sound much different than anything they've done lately other than having Lou Reed on the track.

It's ok. Lou Reed wasn't so terrible as those previews made him sound, still doesn't like his "singing" that much, on the other hand i really like the last 1½ minutes with Hetfield singing.

I have really no expectations for the album, but i'm definitely interested enough to get it.

Exactly what I expected to be honest. Metallica take years to make albums, so to do it in two months would require them to just play the same riff over and over again for six minutes. Apparently there's a twenty minute song on the album. :mellow:

What a mess. It sounds like bad poetry recited over average metal/metal-by-numbers.

Those drums in the beginning were horrid. That's what turned me off to this shit. People actually listen to Metallica?

I don't think the drums in the beginning of one song, is indicative of the entire career of a band that has sold albums amassing a number second only to The Beatles. <_< But yeah, the drums are shithouse in this. After listening to this song at least a half dozen times, I can only wonder if a tremendous amount of miscommunication was had and nobody could be bothered to change things around after the parts were combined. It sounds like Lou is trying to follow the drum beat, sometimes rushing the words and even singing for half a second to fit a line in, in time. The whole thing is just such a pigfuck. I actually wouldn't be surprised if either of them didn't want to insult the other, by telling them that it just doesn't work.

But as bad as it is, I've had "I am the root; I am the progress" circling my head ever since I heard it. I don't have high hopes for the album, but I do think that there's a good chance this is one of the worst parts of it and so they can only go up from here. This is 100% an EWB Music Club future nomination.

The more i listen to "The View" the less i hate it, Ulrich's drumming does suck though and it repeats the same riffs through the whole thing, but they aren't that bad. Lyrics and Hetfield's vocals are the things that i like about this. I really, really hope that he has bigger part on the songs, that could be the one thing saving a big part of this, atleast for me. I don't want to hear a song with Lou Reed talking 20 minutes straight.

I still want to hear the whole thing before judging it, but even though they made it in a short amount of time, i just wish that they would have spend that time on next own album than making this. Death Magnetic was great and i want to hear a follow-up before 2015.

I've also listened to Master of Puppets all the way through a couple times, so, no, but my combined experiences lead me to wonder why people listen to Metallica.

Okay, let me phrase this differently -- What is the appeal of Metallica?

I'm not a big fan. They have some decent enough songs. Works for me if people wanna like them.
