Shouldn't this be 3 CD, since the album comes on three CDs?

It is brickwalled, but sounds a lot better than Death Magnetic did. For this release, i's say vinyl sounds best.

Sounds amazing for a 2016 rock record. Tons of clarity and dynamics.

Pretty cool wish it was numbered but that doesn't matter much. The pink looks amazing.

Now, don't get me wrong, I love Metallica. I didn't mind them going alternative rock. I didn't mind them playing with an orchestra. I didn't mind them using trash cans for snares. But the only thing I've considered a detriment to all their albums since the mid-90's is that they're all so bloody long! And that has never been more evident than with 'Hardwired... To Self Destruct'.

The thing is, eight-minute songs (and longer) worked for the band back in the day, but since the rise of Dream Theater and progressive metal since the early 90's, it really feels like a field in which Metallica can't compete anymore. And in fact, maybe they were better suited to the stadium anthem vibe of 1991's self-titled album, because every song having a ridiculously and unnecessarily long intro, or intricate musical passages that feel like the band are just going through the motions, is getting a bit tedious now.

Criticisms aside, 'Hardwired...' follows on from 2008's 'Death Magnetic', in which Metallica have readily accepted a return to being a (thrash?) metal band. The music is heavy and fast, with lots of tasty riffs and each member really trying to get the most out of their somewhat limited musical prowess. Highlights include 'Moth Into Flame', which is one kickass tune, 'Now That We're Dead', 'Atlas, Rise', 'Spit Out the Bone' and 'Halo On Fire'. All of which are decent tracks that have the makings of great songs, but suffer from the aforementioned duration issues.

Special editions of this album came with a third disc, but there isn't much to write home about here. A bonus track (which goes on for too long), a few covers from various tribute albums, none of them are overly inspirational, and nine live tracks of songs we've already heard countless live versions of, make this hardly worth the investment.

After all that, however, 'Hardwired...' isn't a terrible album. It does show a lot of promise at times, but it really gives off an impression that Metallica aren't fully engaged with what they're doing unless they're trying something new or challenging themselves. Going alternative rock, playing with orchestras, theatrical movies, collaborations... seems like anything that takes them out of their comfort zone is really where they're most comfortable. While 'Hardwired...', to Metallica anyway, is just another metal album.

It's funny how they switched "Am I Savage" and "Dream No More" around, in the CD, "Dream No More" was first, but in this version, "Am I Savage" is first. I wonder why? (Not that it's a bad thing).

Fantastic pressing. Cracks, pops are nowhere to be heard. A modern Metallica classic taking their music (somewhat) back to their roots.

I got this from amazon for $35AUD including shipping from US to Australia! Absolute bargain! Great album I already had the deluxe CD set and this was a price I couldn't pass up. Bring on the Aussie Worldwired tour!

my pressing is the best sounding of the Blackend releases I have, glad that Metallica went a bit back to the "old school" thrash, not their greatest, but certainly better than the last couple offerings
