This edition of Death Magnetic is, as I mentioned, identical to the retail version. Therefore, it won't have a correctly mastered disc. The disc is still mastered way too loud (see: the Loudness Wars) and suffers from clipping etc.
Death Magnetic on its own, to me, was a 4 star album. Mastering aside, I thought it was an above average collection of typical Metallica rockers. Gone are the nu-metal tendencies of St. Anger and I think that was the correct move.Read more ›
So please tell me why it was so poorly mixed? The sound is tso poor it rates down there with some offerings by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and any audiophile will tell you those are the worst sounding CDs ever made. What a shame. Let's hope for a re-issue.
Search the net..i am not the only one who feels this way. Again, it's almost unlistebnable on a good sound system or even with headphones.
I've been a fan since Kill 'em All, and for me, it all started going downhill after Justice. Load? Reload? Unload II? Nah. Puppets. Lightning.
But this stuff is good. I was liking the CD on the first listen, which is quite unusual for me.
James has always been the riffmaster. He seems to be focused now. I can't get used to his country-style voice, but I'll settle for this. You can't Win 'em All.
Lars has been full of BS since the Napster incident. But on this album, he seems to have gotten over himself.
Kirk has always been a great guitarist, but he's never been a creative genius. I thought his solos were quite good over the years, but just sounded the same. He brilliantly reinvents himself here.
If you're a fan of The Old Stuff, go ahead and get this one. Heck, that song they keep playing on the radio has nothing but power chords, licks, drums and bass for the last four minutes. That means something has changed.

Got it in the mail today. Great price and arrived safe. As far as the music goes, SICK. As far as I am concerned, this is Hetfield's best vocal work to date!Published 1 month ago by Brendan R.
Pros: At least they sound like Metallica again. It's not Master Of Puppets but it's not Load, Re-Load, or St. Anger either. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Someone

I used to be a die-hard Metallica fan, but less so after St. Anger and now this album. Frankly, I think this band has lost it's hunger, and after the black album it shows. Read morePublished on Feb. 3 2010 by Kwazy Wabbit
