    I remember loving the verse of My Apocalypse the first time I listened to it...but then the bridge kicked in and holy hell...this was the Metallica of old to me. Was so pumped I was trying so hard not to headbang in my office at the time.

    A lot of great songs eh. BBAS is made for air drums, it's a fun game trying to memorise all the fills. SAR didn't grab me and TDTNC feels too much like a mashup of Fade To Black and One. Love TWJYL and U3 I even enjoy.

    Biggest bugbear is how loose it is to me. Rubin wanted to keep the spirit of Puppets in mind for it-but Puppets is one of the tightest metal albums ever and if I remember correctly (and it certainly sounds like it) Lars didn't play to a click for DM. The difference between DM and Hardwired is stark in that respect. 
    Dude said "bugbear".  Who played D&D back in the day?

    I was thinking, doesn't Metallica deserve as much credit (if not more) for killing off hair metal as the grunge bands get? The Black Album blew up before Nevermind. It sold more and was more popular. Metallica was playing stadiums at the time whereas Nirvana never made it to stadiums. And it was Metallica that spent the entire 80's somewhat "battling" those hair bands for metal supremacy, and they won, both creatively and commercially. I guess you can say that Nirvana ushered more bands into the limelight (PJ, AIC, SG in particular), but the best-selling Megadeth, Slayer, and Anthrax albums are all their immediate releases following the Black Album. 

    I guess you can say that MTV prioritized the grunge bands following the release of Nevermind, but as far as mainstream rock fans saying "THIS is the rock I want," no band of that era was bigger than Metallica.

    That's a good point, but I think it was just good timing on both bands. I'm 41, so that was right in my sweet spot of hitting my teens and discovering all these great bands. My friends and I dug the metal/hard rock and grunge bands, so there is probably a lot of overlap of people like me getting into everything with a guitar at that time.

    If you were listening to Master of Puppets, I'm the Man, Angel of Death or Peace Sells you may have had a Poison album or Skid Row one but you sure as hell weren't listening to Bang Tango, Pretty Boy Floyd, Slaughter and Firehouse.

    Those 4 bands, poison, Winger, even Warrant were the bands that we all had enough of so Grunge was a perfect segue from metal that we were listening to and what this newer genre had to offer.  It ushered in Indie music and industrial that had a little bit of a push earlier with bands like NIN and Ministry.

    Lollapalooza to me is what opened the floodgates of music out there if you really get down to it.

    Metallica's website... About three weeks ago or so. This live Moscow show is great, sounds killer. At the end of "Fade to Black" right when the song ends you can hear the damn helicopter that was flying around... The box itself is awesome, I think it will hold up much longer than the others with the different material they used... All in all I'm stoked to add this one to the collection...

    wouldn't that be amazing.. I'm hoping these things don't sell right away so maybe there's a chance to buy then at discount.  would love the moscow show on vinyl.

    I listened to the whole show last night on a stream service. Fantastic! And that they played in front something like 1.5 million people!

    I caved and managed to get one from an online Canadian record store.  Sort of panicked when I realized these were selling out everywhere :(
