im so sorry this was your first metallica show. thats a terrible set. cue the apologists telling me im wrong and then post alot of emoticons.
and i know from bad metallica shows....i saw them with godsmack opening at the meadowlands (metallica was okay that night, but i had to sit through GODSMACK), and the laughable performance at bonnaroo '08.
