I think this has the potential to be a genuinely respectable late-period Metallica album, I won't be expecting anything more than that quality-wise.

What sucks is that the album is probably going to sound like shit no matter who engineers it. Lars and James are too deaf in the high end/sonically incompetent to approve of a mix that actually sounds good.
I like a lot of songs on Death Magnetic, tbh. The production was not great, but I've heard worse.
