There are a few songs on Death Magnetic I like. "End of the Line", "Broken, Beat and Scarred", and "Cyanide" are all pretty good (the latter in particular has an awesome riff and grooves better than perhaps any other Metallica song). But otherwise, I'm not a big fan of the album in general. Production isn't that great, a lot of the songs just seem like random riffs glued together, and the lyrics are pretty awful, as is unfortunately the trend for latter-day Metallica releases.

Also, did we need a third "Unforgiven"? I liked the first two, but c'mon already.

Nice to see someone else who appreciates the Load era.

Load has some of their best song writing

Korn just released another new song. It's pretty kickass. As much as I think the album art is hot ass I think the album is gonna be killer. Love all I've heard so far.

Yeah, that new Korn song is great. Sounds like the songwriting is better now that Head has been back with the band for a few years.

It's crazy to see just how much the songwriting suffered when he left and then perked up when he came back.

I'm loving the three songs that Every Time I Die released from their new album.
