From Fischman
to me, this is a Metallica comeback album after a string of much lesser releases. Back to form in both music and attitude, this was a nice surprise.

From Dawg
This record is good, but the songs are just to damn long. In my opinion, if they had cut the majority of them down to under 5 and a half minutes, then I think it would be a 90. Also, the clipping throughout is really unfortunate.

A good return for Metallica after the worst album of their career. Heavy riffs and guitar solos are back.

IMO, something of a comeback album for Metallica. While they will probably never again reach the heights of Puppets or Lightning, this was as close as a return to form as we could have hoped for.

Decent album that contained a bad production (on the CD version at least). I there was a lot of buzzing when I hear that version which made it a bit difficult for me to listen to. But this was an alright record in terms of the songs.

I don't understand the hate for this album. This was my favorite Metallica album since Master of Puppets IMO. One of my 10 favorite albums of the 21st century.

From alert23
I don't get the hate for this record. It has some great songs for a genre which is not in its greatest era. I love the riffs on The Judas Kiss, Broken Beat & Scarred and The Day That Never Comes. The only questions I have are:

1. Unforgiven III? Really? Why?
2. Were you deaf in the studio? The volume is much too high and it ruins the quality of an overall good record. The best since 1988.

From zags7000
It seems that Metallica has set the bar so high that it's either iconic status or really bad. Most what they have done fall into that category. This however is just really good. It's not the greatest or their greatest but it isn't St Anger either. Certainly their best since The Black Album.

From Anti
Like it or hate it, it was a still a MAJOR improvement from St. Anger. And I sincerely appreciate the return to their old sound, regardless of how it was executed. Give the 50 year olds a break.
