This song is cool, but my favorite of the singles released so far is probably hardwired....still it sounds like metallica finally decided to make thrash again instead of arts alternative rock for the first time since the black album....i skipped the last few albums like st. anger and death magnetic but I might just actually buy this one....

f*** yeah gonna disagree with the crowd here, this is definitely my fav track of the three released. The chorus is awesome, great melodies and crucially it has the simplicity that made Metallica great. Solo could have used a bit of a shot of adrenaline and the wacky bit after it was dumb but it hangs together.

>Atlas, Rise!

Now that's something that stirs what I felt when I first heard their lyrics when I was 13. Only thing I dislike about this is the production but hey maybe if I rip it to cassette it'll sound decent ;)

Yep, thats what happends in the metal world when a band doesnt wear masks and gimmicks, they turn old and somehow the sound starts to suck even if its the same, metal needs to turn into comic books the kids want it!
