3 stars Metallica - 'Death Magnetic' 3.5 stars

I was surprised to say the least.

If you are a fan of old Metallica, or the '.And Justice for All' album, you will be very pleased to hear this. This album is, by far, their most progressive effort. The line between Metallica and prog is a little steep in my opinion, but the amount of riffs they pack into one song meets some kind of qualification. The massive amounts of riffs are tied into each other pretty well, assuring smooth transitions. There are some sure standouts, but the other songs keep up just as well.

Recommend this to Metallica fans and those who are scarred from the waist down by the likes of 'Load', 'Reload' and 'St. Anger'.
