4.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Death Magnetic Experience Nov. 26 2010
Format:Audio CD
Like many bands today, Metallica decided to release crazy special editions of their last album in order to make a little extra cash. Unlike a lot of other bands, this "coffin box" edition was crazy expensive. To me the deciding factor wasn't all the bells and whistles (and there are a lot of them) it was the inclusion of the exclusive CD Demo Magnetic. This includes 10 demo tracks, unfinished and otherwise unreleased versions of the Death Magnetic tracks.

There were only 2000 copies of this made, so if you didn't pre-order, chances are you won't get it.

Death Magnetic CD (the digipack version, identical to the original release)
Demo Magnetic CD
The Making of Death Magnetic DVD
Four imitation guitar picks (made of flimsy plastic, not actual guitar picks)
Exclusive T-shirt
Exclusive bandana
Backstage pass with lanyard
A card with a download code for a free show
Coffin shaped poster

Tracklist for Demo Magnetic:
1."Hi Guy" - 7:11
2."Neinteen" - 7:35
3."Black Squirrel" - 6:13
4."Casper" - 8:15
5."Flamingo" - 7:59
6."German Soup" - 6:31
7."UN3" - 7:50
8."Gymbag" - 7:55
9."K2LU" - 9:30
10."Ten" - 5:18

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Torn Between Awesome Music and Craptastic Sound March 4 2010
Format:Audio CD
The music on this album is awesome. This is some of my favorite Metallica music. I like the sound, the mixing, the EQ, all that is good. What is NOT good, is the fact that much of this album is totally distorted to the point where it becomes unpleasant to listen to. I cannot give this album the 5 star rating it deserves because of this.

This is not the only album to suffer from this condition. It seems that almost every album I buy these days is rampant with distortion. This is NOT ok. The music industry needs to fix this, or people are seriously going to stop paying ANY amount of money for this crappy sound.

I highly recommend the music on this album, but I can't listen to this CD without getting mad.

4.0 out of 5 stars Greetings old friend. Sept. 12 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Firstly This album is not a return to anything.

Metallica, will never make another Killemall or another ride the lightning nor for that matter another master of puppets or and justice for all. It will never happen. And thanks for that, life is about moving forward.. Some people think they want album after album of The killemall formula.. But if they had it Metallica would be cursed by fans for never moving forward.

Some people simply don't realize what they actually want.

So this album is neither the 80's era, nor is it the 90's either. It certainly doesn't sound much like Load/reload. Not St Anger, in fact even though I loved this album, Hetfields vocals were actually better on St Anger.

This album though, Is great. The only low point is unforgiven part 3, which unfortunately adds nothing to the unforgiven parts 1 and 2.

And even though the rifts are powerful, the guitar harmonies are there. It still lacks that kick you in the stomach full force that a metallica album usually hits you with. This of course is the productions fault, a muddy sound may have worked for St Angers stripped down approach but it hinders it on death magnetic.

So you have rifts, that should practically leave you breathless yet you end up practically losing them in a muddy distorted mess. Which worked for Nirvana, worked for Sonic youth etc, Even worked For St Anger. But this isn't that type of record.

But In the end, this is an album which should please everyone. It will please or "should" at least people who think metallica need to recapture their earlier sound. It will please the Load/reload era of fans. It will also please people like me who have found merit in all metallica albums.

Format:Audio CD
I know, it's "not out yet", but I have an advance copy- and I am highly pleased. I've been a Metallica fan since they began, and I've heard it all. Overall the album is more like Justice For All- longer songs, shifting tempos, blistering solos. It has occasional touches of the St. Anger looseness to some of the lyrics and song structure, which is not always the best thing, but it's still an incredible cd (and that damn tinny high-hat sound is gone:-)Don't judge by those demos you've heard- the finished songs are much richer in sound. Of course, I have to spend more time with it, but initial impressions:
"That Was Just Your Life" rolls us into the cd in style, with the kind of energy and speed only "Blackened" could match.
"The End of the Line" Believe it or not, like a newer version of "Creeping Death". Similar melody, great headbanging power.
"Broken, Beat & Scarred"- mid-tempo (usually- all these songs change tempo in places). Feels like "Disposable Heroes" with a bit more melody. Nice military drums.
"The Day That Never Comes" is similar to "Unforgiven 1" or "God That Failed". Definitely a "Black Album" type-slower track until it goes into faster solo territory. Worth the wait.
"All Nightmare Long" is the band's reply to "Enter Sandman", and it's harder than hell. Remember when Metallica was a thrash metal band? Yep, 8 minutes of fury. I love this tune.
"Cyanide" is a less structured, shifting song, not as tight as the other tracks. More like a St. Anger song, but still solid.
The Unforgiven III: Nice. Starts in that slow droning that characterized the first two parts of this trilogy, and then rips into a nice Load-style solo. (Listening to all three "Unforgiven"s in a row is very interesting, incidentally).
"The Judas Kiss"- rocks.

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 more
