The production quality of Death Magnetic is really what killed it for most people, including myself.
The music itself wasn't bad at all.

Actually it was, it was no St. Anger bad but it still was pretty bad. Metallica in midage crisis trying to appease their classic fanbase with a "return to roots" that wasn't actually a return to such.The music itself wasn't bad at all.

i didn't even listen to "death magnetic". the songs i heard from it were enough cause for me to focus my attention elsewhere.
of course, the same would have happened with "chinese democracy", but i was trapped in a car with a friend who bought it.
