Oh, and I'm a CD snob.  I have something like 26,000 songs on my iPod, and I would guess that all but maybe 50 are from a CD in my basement.  MAYBE 100, but I can't imagine it's that high a number (though I did buy a three-volume Cheap Trick on-line only set, so maybe...)

Sweet! That red is really cool!

The vinyl sounds so good. I had it cranked and aside from being warmer - I swear there's more audible

cymbals. I remember Moth in particular sounding great.

I'm sure it does. Obviously even though the songs all sound similar, there are definitely slight differences in the mixes across songs and to my ears, Moth is one of the best sounding songs on the record.

You mean in general on the CD or do you have the album on Vinyl too ? :)

Hardwired sounds like it has a slightly more digital guitar sound than the rest. Not sure if this is from them recording it last minute or what.

I mean on the CD. I don't have the vinyl (yet). I think sonically, you can tell Hardwired was thrown on at the end of the process, still sounds good but you are right, not quite up to the quality of the other songs sonically.

Also I don't think Hardwired has as much going on with regards to layers.

It's essentially 2 rhythms bass drums and a solo.

What a great schedule that tour is for the band. Basically they go out and do 7 or 8 shows, then go back home for a while. Then repeat. Must be nice to be able to book tours like that!

Yeah, but with all that down time for practicing just imagine how awesome Lars is gonna sound.

I took a good listen, it sounds like at least 3-4 rhythms (either 2 on each side or 1 on each side and 1 in the middle) with at least 3-4 leads (not counting solos).


........and bass and drums.

You're joking of course but he says he does practice more these days. You can tell. he's not suddenly Dave Lombardo but his playing is a LOT better recently.

I can't remember the last time I heard him make a big error - not like back in 2006 where he would come off the rails once a gig at least.

I used to listen to gigs back in the day just waiting for " the Lars fuck up ". Nowadays his playing is a lot stronger overall.

He still speeds up a bit live but they're playing the songs slightly slower than usual so that helps too.





EDIT



I also never really thought of Hardwired / Atlas as like Battery / Master with regards to sequencing - but Atlas, Rise! is a much better attempt at a long Master Of Puppets style song

than " Just A Bullet Away " was - with it's clean middle section for good measure.

This may be an unpopular opinion, but besides anything from Lulu, Just A Bullet Away is Metallica's worst song.

Great verse riff but that's it.

I actually really like Just a Bullet Away. The clean middle section is one of the best things they've ever written, the main riff is badass, and the lyrics are pretty good.

Yeah we were talking about Hardwired sounding different to the rest since it was recorded last minute.

It could be one of their best post-Load songs if it wasn't such a clusterfuck of an arrangement. It's a huge waste of potential because of Rick "Just pause it" Rubin.

Didn't they say somewhere that they weren't going to do one for AR because the video kinda already did that?

Halo on Fire making of video was really cool.

And yes, I think there will definitely be a making of video for Atlas, which is the only song left that they haven't released a video for. Unless they are going to do one for Lords of Summer too.

I still have to "watch / listen" the album watching all the videos in a row. I never saw a video outside of the first three, it's my intention to see them all in the album order but I still haven't done it.

Well, I haven't seen Metallica in 18 years. 18 years! So I figured it was about time.

The weekend is shaping up nicely, actually. Weezer on the Saturday in London, NFL game in London the next day and then Metallica on the Monday. Nice :biggrin:

For the italian shows is in the 72-92 euros range, so more or less we're there.

$150 for my ticket and that's mid level.  Worth it for having never seen them plus Avenged Sevenfold.

I would have paid that if they were coming near me, unfortunately they aren't.

I wouldn't mind seeing Avenged Sevenfold, but they're not playing the MA show. I paid about $150, maybe a little more with fees for GA tickets.

If I sent you half, say 50 would it be worth you picking up the other half?
