Well, in three more days the CD will finally be here. After five years of waiting, the ninth studio album by Metallica. Earlier in a post I wrote about “My Impression” of Death Magnetic. With being like every good little fan, I signed up for MissionMetallica.com and had been following the progress since May 1st.
Anyways, it turns out I’m not the good little fan I put myself up to be. At least, I’ve already heard Death Magnetic. Excuse me, but I couldn’t wait any longer. I’m a die-hard fan and the torment of the waiting was too much. It was too easy for me to get Death Magnetic. (I actually nabbed it thanks to Playlist.com — so blame them, not me)
But, yeah, I’ve listened to all the songs thoroughly and I’m pleased. If you didn’t hear it when it leaked onto YouTube thanks to a French CD Store, then you are going to be blown away by it when it drops Friday. Unforgiven III, I tell you, is really something. Not like the other Unforgivens, but that’s all I’m going to say.
And if you are like me, and wanting the full meal of Death Magnetic, then go to playlist.com. Don’t be ashamed, if nothing else just stream it. Then it just looks like an upload from your provider, not a download. (Yes, I realize it doesn’t actually upload it still downloads a temp file. Then make yourself aquainted with CCleaner.)
Good job Metallica, can’t wait to see you November 17th.
