    It may be a different caliber than early Metallica, but I still really liked the last album, and this song stands out to me. \m/

    this band has a special place in my collection of music. and thats up front (2) . I just keep laughing of you guys comparing the old stuff with the new. It seems like you guys don't even know what's it is to be in a band.
