One of the worst records ever created by humans.

I can think of very few, if any, records that go lower than this one here. You figure with a multi-million dollar band such as Metallica, they would have a high production value and good sound. The drums on the album are the most horrid thing I have ever come across on my musical journey. The guitars as tuned way down, to a sludge sound, except they are playing the same stuff from 'Load' and 'Reload'..which isn't sludge at all. So as far as sound goes, this album is a flat out zero. The songs themselves are another monster. The music is just terrible; there is hardly any real direction or purpose behind the tracks. It just seems James Hetfield needed to get some things off of his chest, and the band weren't too sure of themselves.

I recommend this to no one. Should be a forgotten piece of history.
