Really looking forward to this album as loved all the songs released so far. While I was never a hater of the last two albums, I did think they were trying too hard to recapture their older sound and really lacked hooks. On these songs though they seem to have embraced most of their catalogue of styles (with the exception of Lulu and St Anger). Can defo hear early Tallica in some, a bit of the black album on others and even a bit of the more commercial stuff on the Load albums.
First time in a long time that I have looked forward to a new album by them.
I think the break and James' rehab have done them a world of good.
