That's not the Metallica I want to hear.

Saves me the trouble of even downloading the album.
The second half of the song is much better. Less vocals, more guitars. The solos/riffs are pretty damn good, some of the best since And Justice For All.

Alright, on first listen I really like The Day That Never Comes. Thumbs up !

And, yeah, there's more kickass guitar work in the last two minutes of this song than there was on the whole of St. Anger.

This is still music we are talking about, right?

PS: He did sing on the 80s albums too.

Not like a pussy, he didn't.

"And nothing else matters...."

Whatever, dude. You're in a heavy metal band. Supposedly.

What about "I have lost the will to live, simply nothing more to give"?
It's not like they started doing ballads with Nothing Else Matters.

The vocal delivery in those two songs are completely different. Just because they're both ballads doesn't mean they were approached the same way.

"Couldn't be much more from the heaaaaaart..." What the fuck is that?

Metallica is not allowed to mature. They can't keep sounding like metal kids living in their parents basement forever! Kill Em All part 26.

Hetfield has a beautiful singing voice! Mama Said

Who wants Kill 'Em All? And Justice For All sounded pretty damned mature to me.

Simplifying/shortening your songs and trying to sing sensitively does not equal maturation/sophistication. They've regressed, if anything.

Haha, no, he doesn't. He can sing on key, but "beautiful" is quite a stretch.

Well okay... but I liked his singing in Mama Said, Low Man's Lyric, Nothing Else Matters etc.

I'm kinda with Laz here. The first couple minutes sound like a Metallica-Lite cover band. James sounds plain. Don't like the mix either - at least Lars doesn't sound like he's banging on a metal chair, but the drums stick out too much still, and they're not nearly interesting enough to be that prominent in the mix.

Does get a little better in the latter half, but it seems kind of like aimless "we must thrash now to redeem ourselves" rather than "this is where the song should go" progression.

It's better than anything on St. Anger. But that's not saying much.

My Apocalypse is hilariously bad.

YouTube - Metallica - My Apocalypse (256kbps HIGH QUALITY + LYRICS)

The lyrics...man, oh man. They're as bad as anything on St. Anger, easily. It sounds like Hetfield just took some cliches out of the Book Of Heavy Metal and made an attempt to sound earnest.
