Jimmy Petulla ,

Thank you!

Appreciate the guys and everyone involved putting this together for the fans. It’s always great to hear from the band but to also get to hear from some of the folks that work behind the scenes was pretty awesome.

Hope we get more of these in the future!

Its a must listen for fans of the band and this album

also for those that hate the album - it explains a lot.

BUT - the reason it is not 4 stars is the production is SO self indulgent and wasteful. Way too much intro with high production voices and sounds - some eps it is like 30% of the entire length. It will turn people off.

I Love It!

It’s nice to hear their prospective on making the album and all that it took to get confortable with the new process. I Love Metallica with passion and it’s cool that in a way I get to know them better that way. The only little problem I have with the actual podcast is that it’s a bit over produced and sometimes it takes me a bit of time to know what they are talking about. I feel like they cut with music “mid thought” and it’s a bit hard to follow sometimes.
