    General Comment"I think they wised up and listened to the fans"

    Saroknight, you're an imbecile. If they listened to "fans" like you, they wouldn't be Metallica.

    Anyway, I am pleased they came out with another amazing instrumental. Reminds me of the melody of Orion and the structure of Ktulu.

    General CommentThe first instrumental written without Cliff. Somtimes the instrumentals are the best on the album, for this song that is arguably true. I like this song a lot and it contains some of the elements from To live is to Die and Orion. I'm so happy that Metallica decided to resurect an old tradition.

    General CommentThe middle part, starting at about 6:10, is great. Favorite part of the album.

    Considering that the lyrics of the album tend to deal mainly with death or being consumed by some evil, this could be a musical interpretation of finding (drum roll, please) redemption at the end of your struggles. The light at the end of the tunnel if you will.

    General CommentAlso, did anybody notice Lars' drum solo toward the end? Even though it was a good drum bit, I could help but chuckle considering how so many people have always bashed him as being a bad drummer.

    Which is something I've never understood. Sure, he's no Mike Portnoy, but his drumming as always sounded good to my ears (except on St. Anger, of course).

    General CommentTHE BEST F'ING SONG ON THIS ALBUM! Orion665, I concur. Lars is no MP but given that he is in, argubly, the most successful band in heavy metal, that has got to stand for something. but don't get me wrong... Mike Portnoy IS GOD when it comes to percussionists, Lars is still not too bad (he is still better than me so I can't really talk shit).

    General Commentbloch, be nice man. medleys don't really count as instrumentals in the sense that they weren't originally written as such. Andonio is a MET-head like the rest of us. that's all i'm trying to say.
