the whole producer thing is such a stupid lame argument.

Are we to get all bent out of shape because Rick Rubin has produced for Shakira, Neil diamond and Andrew Dice Clay ?

Yes, they are back with a vengance! Both Lars and James have said that all the shit that they went through during the making of St. Anger is really paying off now! From the little that I was able to listen from the Mission Metallica site it seems like we have some great songs coming our way. I don't like the fact that they are not playing their guitars D-tuned and that Rubin wanted James to sound more like on Kill 'Em All. I personally prefer the thickness and heavyness of the D-tunning and the aggressivity of late 80's and 90's James vocals but I think their songwriting abilities is still alive and kicking and they seem still really passionate about doing records and touring so I can only hope for the best!

I think it's going to be a great record they will deliver and it's going to shut the mouths of a bunch of extremely annoying people. I want to see the bullshit they wil come up with to keep their hate for Metallica going as they pretend no to like the new stuff. Can't wait for it!

And here's the obnoxious smiley tat kicks everybody in the ass:

Working in different genres is one thing. But Rock's poppy, cheese metal style (also present in his work with Motley Crue) is something that is NOTICEABLE on the Black Album. The little cutesy guitar fills on Enter Sandman, for example.

It amazes me that anyone could even listen to Ride the Lightning, Master of Puppets, or And Justice For All, and not realize how towering those achievements are in comparison.

It's called an opinion. While I agree that the pre-Black stuff is a lot better, I can certainly understand that (gulp) people have different tastes than I do !!!! Shocking.

Hey, I know there's a lot of people with shitty taste.

It still amazes me, though.

and all is forgiven. Of course they were heavily milking the rise of videos and MTV along the way in the 90's too.

That would have a certain irony to it.

Actually they've been surprisingly adept at embracing the internet once they saw it wasn't going to go away. You're going to be able to follow new album progress, and every live show, warts and all, is available for download within 48 hrs. The U2 camp could stand to learn a thing or 2....

Yeah, delving into a genre that a large percentage of your audience doesn't want you to explore is a sure fire way to make more money and gain popularity.

Shut up U2 Girl, you're a broken record. You've been beating this horse for how many years now?

Go back to EYKIW where people expect to read this shit over and over again.

Would that be the large percentage that ate up AB and Zoo TV tour just a few years before ? Yeah, trying out dance music totally ruined U2 and their fanbase.

I just love the double standard when it comes to U2 "selling out". The topic isn't exclusive to EYKIW, and it never was.

U2girl, how long will you keep defending U2 of the 00s to people who's posts don't really matter in the grand scheme of things. Why can't you just let things be as simply opinions and be satisfied with your own opinions? You really have a neverending thankless job here.

It's not the defending of the 00's that bothers me; it's that to do so she resorts to claiming U2's choices in the 90's were a safe career move, and that it was commercially motivated.

It's almost futile arguing with anyone who uses such pretzel logic. Or someone who thinks Achtung and Zoo-TV somehow segue cleanly into "dance music".
