I'm surprisingly optimistic about this. I won't keep my hopes up, but it might not suck.

The song's actually okay. Nothing special, but it's alright. Not sure why there's already so many people crying. It's like they just want it to suck and are predestined to hate it. Like, sure, I'm not expecting much, but at least be open to the possibility of it not being awful.

It'd be cool if they went back to their roots of making music that rose above "not awful" though.

You know, I'm not excited, I'm curious. I really hope if the rest of the album is at least like load and/or reload. Not amazing, but a fun jammer.

People aren't happy unless they have something to bitch about.

I'm hoping that's what this album is. But again, I'm being optimistic, but cautiously.

From what I've heard so far, I don't have high hopes that it'll be good. Sounds like it'll be not awful but I'd say the same of St. Anger and Death Magnetic.

The short clip from 2:07 onwards in the album trailer at least sounds a bit more interesting than the lead single. I don't know though. A major problem with Metallica in my opinion is that they tend to write excessively bloated songs these days. The upcoming album is 80 minutes, 2 discs, 6 tracks per disc. Do the math...
I'm fine with other bands writing long songs, but metallica don't know what to do with those extra minutes any more except just play all the riffs 4 times more than necessary and add a ton of hamfisted transitions.

Master of Puppets says you're wrong.

That's why I said "these days". On the St. Anger, Death Magnetic/Beyond Magnetic and Lulu albums, plus that damn Lords of Summer song, those kinds of interesting musical passages that keeps Master of Puppets afloat are nowhere to be seen. I'm pretty sure Kirk Hammet forgot how to play melodies with his guitar, too.
