Metallica is BACK!
September 16, 2008
I never thought I’d hear or see the day when Metallica starts recovering from their recent shittiness. I remember asking former co-worker Eddie James a few months back: “What if Metallica’s next album is totally awesome?”
I was joking at the time, but as it turns out, Metallica’s most recent album is indeed quite awesome!
Considering the circumstances of reality, the new Metallica album (Death Magnetic) doesn’t blow me completely away like their first 4 albums, but it certainly seems to have the capability to do so once I’ve listened to it as many times as the first 4. I’m totally stoked and relieved that Metallica, once the greatest metal band ever, is starting to push back into that position.
And here is the true Metallica discography, according to me:
Kill ‘Em All, 1983
Ride the Lightning, 1984
Master of Puppets, 1986
…And Justice for All, 1988
Death Magnetic, 2008
As you can see, it’s been a long, long time coming…
