Personally I wouldn't call the rhythms shitty by any means, but compared to the older stuff, yes. But also i thought the solos were a lot better on Death Magnetic than any recent album, the old shit isnt really included in this because they are untouchable classics. I'm a huge Metallica fan, personally, best part of the songs are when james shuts his mouth and they start really playing. EX: The Day that never comes. Anyone with similar thoughts?
The Metallica thread was right above this post...how could you not see it?...Man...some people just want attention.
