Review: Metallica – Death Magnetic, by Randy Mull
I must preface the review of this album with the fact that I’ve been a fan of Metallica since the ripe old age of 13. I am the biggest Metallica nerd or “fanboy”, as I think the saying goes today, that you’ll ever meet. Sadly I was 13 back in 1988; 20 years ago. Even still, I’m not oblivious to their shortcomings. Upon writing this review I realized I haven’t had much to be proud of in regards to this band lately. Sure they had some great moments on their 90s albums that let you know the old Metallica was buried in there somewhere, but overall the music just wasn’t up to snuff compared to past endeavors. Fast forward to 2008 and their latest offering, Death Magnetic, and one could say that things have changed for the better.
