Not really. ADTOE was great, and DT12 is fantastic. In my opinion.

DT got the break they needed when Portnoy left.

Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

I hope they do deliver an album in 2014 but it will most likely be mid 2015.

They just need to write songs and pick the best. Forget about being old school. Just jam and see what comes out.

I recall reading a comment from Hetfield that were contractually obligated to deliver an album in/by 2014, although I'm probably mistaken. I can't remember where I read it, but I should search for it.

Maybe we'll get some Lulu leftovers, like ReLoad was to Load.

I see what you did there.

But I still think that, while taking more than 2 years to release their next album wouldn't be a bad thing for DT, a hiatus would be a really bad decision.

Yeah, with the "break" thing, i was actually talking about "more time to write music" (more ideas, more cohesiveness, less filler, etc...), not a real hiatus.

I honestly don't see any filler on the last two DT albums.

I think it looks interesting. A concert movie interspersed with dialogue free narrative elements.

Oh, is it more of a concert movie? I saw the trailer a while back and didn't know wtf to make of it! It looked kind of silly though.

It's based around a Metallica concert - but there is some kind of story interspersed with it. With no dialogue.

It was filmed in 3D which interests me slightly as it will probably be the closest i'll get to a Met gig :P

I know very little about the film, but it seems to be a pretty major release. Might check it out if it gets a good response!

I've seen the production they put into the concert part of the movie and I want to see it just for that! Also, listened to the soundtrack of it and apparently they do a bit like Cunning Stunts where the show breaks down and they have to stop mid-song because of "technical issues".

They chuck in every stage prop they've used over the years.

I downloaded the soundtrack... was it like recorded in a semi live controlled setting or is it just like rerecordings with audience noise? Can't tell.
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

Plus the stage is full of LED monitors and the coffins too. I think I read they spend like $15 million making that show happen!

I believe that it was recorded after three shows or so in Vancouver.  I think that's where the setting of the entire movie will be at.

So as for the movie itself, it's hard to for me to justify watching it, if I already heard good performances of these songs already in the 2000s age.  So that leaves the non-performance bits with that roadie dude and quite frankly, looks pretty actiony but does not leave much substance, imo.  As a result, I'm 50/50, leaning downwards.
