Interesting statement. Even though I'm a huge fan and defender of Lars, I wouldn't ever agree with that.Lars's drumming - it's probably his best performance yet, actually, because instead of going at hyperspeed he's pacing himself better and honing in on his style.
I've heard from some people that it's the better of the two, and since the material was intended as a double album with this one, I think I know much of what to expect. Unless there's something fundamentally wrong with the material it should be a good album. I remain hopeful.Hopefully you'll like Reload too.
My thing with him is that the heavier and faster stuff the band had been doing on the previous albums meant that while he could often keep up, his drum style wasn't as interesting as, say, Nicko or Lombardo. On occasion it almost fell flat. He used his style of drumming to bring out the heaviness on The Black Album but on this release I think he succeeds best because it's a new style of music better fitting for his drumming techniques. I actually think it sounds really good.Interesting statement. Even though I'm a huge fan and defender of Lars, I wouldn't ever agree with that.
House Jack Built is brilliant, got a really strong Alice in Chains feeling from it. It was definitely the song that stood out to me the most on my first full listen (I already knew Ain't My Bitch, Until It Sleeps and King Nothing).The House That Jack Built is possibly the best song on the album.
It's thought of as an album that tries to replicate what they've done in the 80s, doesn't quite deliver but still ends up being decent. The production is panned by everyone though.I'm not a Metallica fan, so I wouldn't know: is that album well thought of by fans? I've no idea how much of a blasphemy it is to have it as one of your favorites.
You have the same top 2 as I do, just different order.It's half a step under the black album for me.
