That raises further questions. Did he get bored halfway through recording?There's nothing in between, they were recorded simultaneously. Meant to be released as a double album.
I disagree, I don't mean that Metallica was bad bad, but it was meh, and IMHO, Countdown and Youthanasia are top-notch Megadeth. Metallica really did dumb down Load/Reload too much. Hetfield was being sarcastic in a recent interview about the magic combo of Lars and him, in a sense that they went too far in that period rendering out too much material, quantitatively, in regards to amount of original ideas, riffs and melodies they had. I'm sorry that I cannot really convey that properly, it was an answer to number of riffs that average AJFA song has, Lars commented how things were rather opposite in Load/reload era, yet a great success. Hetfield responded how they maybe went too far developing two albums out of just of handful of ideas. Well, they are the masters of arrangement so yeah, it didn't flop but arrangement only gets you out so far.90s Metallica is excellent.
Not too sure about that one, from the songs I've heard I doubt it'll be able to match MOP, but maybe it'll be around the level of RTL. Maybe it'll actually be pretty great. Who knows? Either way, I'm going into it with an open mind.I'm sure you'll love ...And Justice For All as well.
