5 stars Okay, Metallica is not prog, certainly, but they are fairly progressive for a metal band, in fact far too progressive to be called Thrash Metal. So I think their inclusion under prog related is understandable, if a bit of a stretch. I thought this album was going to suck, as all of the Youtube footage of the new songs live had everyone believing, but Metallica has proved me (and all other non-die hard fans) dead wrong. Death Magnetic is a return to what made Metallica great in the 80's, which is much appreciated after the last three cruddy albums they have released. The album might be their heaviest to date, and has a ton of great tunes with catchy riffs, which for me was what Metallica was always all about. That Was Just Your Life, The End of the Line, Cyanide, and the masterpiece instrumental, Suicide and Redemption (which has one of the catchiest riffs ever) are the standouts, imo, but the thing rocks hard and fast all the way through and I highly recommend it to anyone who has enjoyed the true Metallica at all. In other words, if The Unforgiven is your favorite song from them, don't bother... perhaps just buy The Unforgiven III off iTunes and see how the song was meant to sound.
