Re: Ugh Rick Rubin
If the band had any sense left, an Albini-produced Metallica record would be amazing. But they definitely don't have any sense so it would probably be a disaster. Rick Ruben can be trusted to whip them into shape, that's definitely true. But he also can't be trusted to make an album that doesn't sound like ass. So take the good with the bad I guess.
The disappointing thing is that with Death Magnetic there was a Guitar Hero mix released that restored all the dynamics and sounded pretty awesome. But Guitar Hero is long gone now so I doubt that we'll have the opportunity to get those alternate mixes again.
