In the Flesh?
5 stars Just like their fellow thrashers Slayer and Exodus, the guys from Metallica have managed to return to 1000% metal form. The debut of Mr. Robert Trujillo on bass and Rick Rubin at the producer's helm, 'Death Magnetic' is the heaviest release by 'Tallica ever since 'Justice' has been brought the world (maybe even 'Master of Puppets'). The killer production, rabid solos, chugging riffs and fast drums are the reasons you MUST have this album. Speaking of songs, they're long, with extensive instrumental parts (notably 'The Day That Never Comes') and definitely not boring. I also recommend 'Suicide & Redemption', the first instrumental in twenty years, as well as a fast-as-a-shark 'My Apocalypse'. Also, you can hear the piano for the first time in 'The Unforgiven III', played by Mr. Hetfield himself.

For all you prog, thrash, speed or any-other-kind-of metal and rock fans, this is a must!
