Better than I expected after hearing "Lords of Bummer"...

I never thought I would say this again in my lifetime, but the new Metallica kicks ass!

It sounds like most of the stuff from Death Magnetic, which i liked.  Production quality is better as well.

 

Saying fucked is likely going to ban the album's sale from Walmart.  Surprised it hasn't led to the thread on TRF being deleted.  :P

We'll have to think of the substitutions on the "radio/walmart edit".  If it's anything like the movies it should be fun

This sounds promising...

 

The vocal delivery on the word 'fucked' just seems a little contrived and forced.  It's like he knows he shouldn't be saying it or something.  But the structure of the song is pretty great.  Looking forward to this...

Definitely the best Metallica song I have heard in ages.

Unlike the material from Death Magnetic, it's not 100 years long and it doesn't sound like eight different songs cut and pasted together.  They came up with a nice, old school thrash riff, and let it run its course without forcing it.  Sonically, it's also not a hot mess of compression.  I'd give it a solid B.

 

They've probably been taking notes from some of their peers who've been having a resurgence of excellent albums.  It seems like no one's been noticing, but Anthrax's latest, For All Kings, is a virtual masterpiece, and although I'm not a fan, apparently Megadeth's latest is making their fans very happy.

But I think Mrs. Battery has been seen around town with Mr. Whiplash  ;)

 

I like it - may buy the album when it is released but will have to hear more. Was a huge Metallica fan up to the Load era, fandom has sputtered since and never bought St. Anger, Death Magnetic or Lulu - although I did purchase the Beyond Magnetic and Live at Grimey's EPs.

 

Listening to my own compilation of maxi-disc and ep non-lp cuts compilation in the car, kinda feelin' a Metallica resurgence.

So after two full listens, the new album has some pretty solid stuff on it, maybe a few throw aways...

 

Really digging:

Atlas, Rise!

Moth Into Flame

Halo On Fire

ManUNkind

Spit Out The Bone

Unfortunately (for you?) the rest of the songs match that description pretty well.

I disagree.  Most are pretty focused in my humble opinion.  Spit Out The Bone is a hot mess of fun, but I find overall the album flows well.

In my not-humble opinion, Hardwired shares more in common with DM than with any other Metallica release.

I've added Now That We're Dead to my really digging list.  It has a serious Blue Oyster Cult vibe to it, and is a very solid hard rock tune.

 

I pretty much like "Side 1" all the way through.  I like tracks 2, 4, & 6 on "Side 2" for a solid 9/12.  I'd safely call it my favorite Metallica album since ...And Justice For All.

I liked that one from first listen and still do.

 

Listening to the album a lot last week I realized I like the album, but NOT because it's a Metallica album.  I dig it purely as a hard rock (and sometimes metal) recording.  There's even a few moments I feel are progressive leaning.

 

I'm lukewarm on some of tracks but overall there's much more to like here.

I find Here Comes Revenge and Murder One on side two to be dull throw aways.  I pretty much like the rest to varying degrees.  

 

Lars is showing his age, his playing is very straight forward, counting out time, not much flair.  He serves the songs, but nothing beyond that.  James is the surprise hit of the album, his voice hasn't sounded this good in quite a while, and most of the lyrics are big improvements over his last few efforts.

Agree.  I'm disappointed in most of the drumming.
