They covered Breadfan back in the late 80s... if was the B-side to Harvester Of Sorrow if I remember correctly.

Anyway, I'm downloading the new album right now. My high hopes aren't too high, but hey... you never know...

I'm liking the 3 downloads they've released. I haven't gone out hunting for the full-length just yet. No hurry, but geesh, that first single is a whopper. I love so many aspects of its multi-faceted arrangement.

Metallica's Breadfan is terrific, especially live.

That's a big boast, but it wouldn't surprise me.
I was listening to St. Belt-Buckle-in-the-dryer-Drums and I was thinking how the songs must really blow up in a live setting. Anyone ever hear any of that stuff live? I bet it really kicked the living shit out of the record.

On first listen it certainly sounds like Metallica... like the Metallica I remember and loved that is, not the one they've been for the last decade or more. It's 70 minutes long, virtually every song is of epic length with more riffs, sections, verses and solos than you can shake a flying V at. So there's a lot to take in and I don't really know how good the actual songs are as such... that will take quite a few more listens! But for the moment I'm very happy they've made an album that sounds pretty much like I hoped it would... good work Mr Rubin.

Some Kind Of Monster is the best spoof of Spinal Tap ever.

I do hate Metallica though, so I shouldn't be commenting!
There are people who are far worse than Lars Ulrich. He's just an annoying person, that plays in a pretty good band. Gene Simmons is an evil motherfucker and his gay buddy Paul Stanley are true dickheads that represent all the bad things in music. Liam Gallagher is another one.

Pretty much my impression as well (but I'm not a big Metallica fan at all). There's a Orion-type riff at one point that made me wonder if they're ripping off themselves but then it made me happy because Orion is such a great song. Too long to take it all in on one listen for me as well.

New-ish band. Had a couple good singles, the album might be worth a listen.

I just finished listening to Death Magnetic for the 2nd time.

I like it.

I read that Lars or James was saying that they were trying to capture the Master of Puppets era without copying it. I think they did a pretty good job of it !

Budgie and Death Ramblings...

Metallica also covered Budgie's Crash Course in Brain Surgery.

The Jayhawks' rereleases with unreleased tracks has me hoping for something like the best release of buried material ever (aside from Death's For the World to See.) After a bunch of odds and ends live tracks of poor quality, poor performances and past-their-prime Budgie lineups, Budgie released in the last ten years "Radio Sessions 1974 & 1978." The 1974 Disc is killer. Great tracks, wicked performances of the tracks, the band at their height and decent quality. Check it out metal fans. Disc 2, from 1978, is a throwaway like every other group of unreleased Budgie material.

So what the best unreleased Jayhawks material out there that I must check out? Thanks.

Only song I know from the band...and I taught myself to play it on the cello.
