Repeating the same thing over and over will not make it funnier, wittier or better in any other way, especially if it's a fail troll to begin with. Doesn't do much for how others view you either.

It's not failing when someone actually takes it seriously. But I wasn't trolling this time. I mean, that is like, one of our only private memes. I was trying to remind everyone of how great it was. And here you are, breaking my heart.

I didn't find it TOO horrible. I do think Metallica should've saved a lot of the instrumental parts for their own music (Mistress Dread sounds like early Metallica), but I stick by with what I said before. It's interesting to hear Reed's vocals on this type of music.

Lulu is discussing. Lou Reed is a joke. His singing was torture to listen to. Metallica haven't done anything good since And Justice For All anyways.

because it was an awful album? that's pretty much grounds to not like something. granted i've never been much of a metallica fan anyway but even by their standards it sucked.

Commercialism =/= Quality. Also, I love it when bands experiment with their sound. Keeps them from becoming stale and boring, IMHO.

i'm all for bands experimenting. just as long as it still sounds good. death magnetic failed there for me.

How?

it felt like they were trying to bring back their "classic" sound, which would be good except it lacked that spark that the old albums had. it felt like imitation metallica as opposed to the actual thing.

I will admit, they don't seen as "lively" as they used to. I think it's because Hett can't scream anymore.

In Dreams is so great, and they were fantastic when i saw them on the all-stars tour. shame i missed them when they came through here with veil of maya and within the ruins, two other bands i love a whole lot

It did lack that spark, and I feel that Metallica hasn't, and definitely had not let go of commericalism when they made DM. Just look at how much attention they tried to get off the album. And not to mention, many of the songs used formula of 80s Metallica songs.

What...no Bionic Jive? :headbonk: Yes, I know it's rap metal, but it holds a certain charm and is honestly the best metal band I have heard. Armageddon Through Your Speakers is one of my favorite albums, I know. Apparently Passion over Politics is even harder than Armageddon Through Your Speakers.

just listened to them it was kind of gross, no offense they've got skill and all but it's just not my cup of tea also i'd probably classify it as more of a rap rock album than rap metal, it didn't sound like it was very metal-ish

Understandable, personally I would throw Rage Against The Machine in the Rap Rock genre. I mean which song did you listen to, cause I tried to classify "I Shot Lucifer" as rap rock myself, but honestly it sounds too metal to me. Anyways my knowledge of Metal only really scratches the surface, I originally I hated it, thought it was the worst genre, but after a couple listens the genre grew on me thanks to my best friend. Apparently Soil is like five different types of metal and I've listened to only one nonpoint song, which apparently qualifies as alternative metal. Any good bands beside the obvious choices?

i'll give you some suggestions, just give me a list of your favorite metal bands

Gonna listen to Lulu tomorrow. Gonna be the worst thing of all time.

it's not as bad as everyone is saying it is. it is certainly not good, but the reaction everyone is having is a ridiculous. if you enjoy lou reed's stuff you'll have a higher chance of enjoying it than if you don't, considering this is basically a lou reed album with james hetfield occasionally screaming about being a piece of furniture

XD I watched Dream Theater's Live at Budokan DVD the other day. I have to say, it's probably the best concert video I've ever seen. Incredible musicianship and songs. John Petrucci is a freaking god on the guitar.

it's basically a giant glob of spoken word sections placed over mediocre riffs that repeat endlessly. it's also way too long at 87 minutes also despite it not being very good you should absolutely listen to it if not to just witness the trainwreck

well there's a little variation but for the most part yeah. also Hetfield really isn't on it that much, he probably sings the most on The View. The View is also probably the best song too. also ohmygod you guys the new Cynic EP leaked and it is just perfect holy god

I'm listening through Th1rt3en right now, and it's pretty sweet. The only bad bit I've discovered so far is "Fast Lane", which is basically a rehash of "502" and "1,320" with waaaay cheesier lyrics. "We The People" was great, probably my favourite, and the remake of "New World Order" is pretty cool. Sudden Death was changed a bit, so it's slightly better, but luckily the album is not all like that. The only one that is comparable (but better) is "Never Dead" which was already released.

Once again I'll have to disagree with you. Call me a Megadeth fanboy, but I love the majority of Dave's lyrics. Everyone makes bad songs sometimes, or bits that don't quite fit, but he's got lots of originality and only recently I feel he's been writing some weaker songs. I still enjoy them though. And after 14 albums the guy's gotta' be running a bit dry, so I can't blame him.
