  • Jon Shockley

    this song is boring

  • Mike Djordjevic

    Yeah! many ways to follow your nose!

  • hans

    Big fan of Newsted, but I agree, kind of a boring song.

  • Sam

    It’s okay. Not great, not bad.

  • andyvm

    Good start, but as many people say does get a bit boring towards the end!

  • tim

    This is just about as bad as it can get. First of this song is pretty much just 2 riffs and you have to be a damn lazy songwriter to pull that off. Second, “NEWSTED”, “Heavy metal music”, how lame

  • youhate

    this song is a little boring ……

  • Jason Kaeser

    I disagree with all of you. Classic heavy metal song with chugging simple riffs. I think it’s a great song. Harkens back to the days of classic Metallica and Testament. Great stuff in my opinion.

  • Bj617

    Monotonous, boring, sounds like something Metallica started and trashed. Nothing new or exciting about this tune.

  • Brad Thomas

    In another album or two his songwriting should have improved enough that we won’t have any arguing about good or bad. The song is too long. Still, an easy listen of simple, good metal. Thanks guys.

    WELL ITS COOL,LONG A BIT,ALBUM TITLE SUCKS.I WOULD BUY THIS..RIFF IS PRETTY BASIC BUT COOL.SINCE HE BAILED FROM METTALICA HE DOESN”T REALLY OF A TRACK RECORD OF METERIAL,SO IF HE GETS ON THE BALL HERE WITH THIS ALBUM,AND A FEW MORELIKE THIS OR BETTER,HE COULD HAVE A FOO FIGHTERS CAREER,OR MAYBE A ALICE IN CHAINS CAREER

    To me: unremarkable, mediocre soloing, not very heavy. I’m disappointed in Newsted; thought he’d do much better.

  • D.

    Not so much heavy metal but a good hard rock song. I was expecting heavier but good for what it is.

  • Julz

    The beginning reminds me of Seek and destroy
