    I like the songs.

    The bassline on Glean Right is nice.

    Yeah, Glean Right's pretty cool. It seems odd he got pissed at Metallica for going unmetalish, and this is the kind, but it's good music. I just hate Jason Newsted.

    I agree with everything you just said, except the Kirk Hammet statement. I was just saying I didn't understand why take such a left turn from the direction you were defending. I don't know why I hate him, I've just always felt it. No reason, blind hate, not good to have, but I cannot control it.

    Im just listening to the songs now, they are good not really my sorta thing but its good to see Jason still progressing in music. Hang on a sec I can actually hear the bass...makes a difference to when he was in metallica, slightly off topic but i heard somewhere that lars or james(correct me if im wrong) they actually said they purposly put Jasons bass really low in the mix.
  8. Not bad, it sort of reminds me of Hater, but a little cleaner sounding and not as sloppy.
  9. Obviously no-one in this thread actually knows why Jason left the band, it had nothing to do with musical direction! he left because Metallica was taken time off, seeing as he dedicated himself to music he had nothing to do during that time but play music. James was preventing Jason from releasing any of this work, the Echobrain project was the straw that broke the camels back. That and they picked on him for 10 years !!!
  10. I've also heard that Jason wasn't as supportive of the whole Napster issue as others in the band, but the whole Echobrain issue I'm sure is really why he left.

    This is why I turned away from metallica. I will still listen to their older stuff, but not newer. They started out with underground music trading, now that they are richy rich they attack that. Bah.

    Edit: I listened to this. Cool stuff.

    That was in "And Justice For All...", barely any bass at all in the mix.

    In every Metallica album after AJFA the bass is right there, thick, loud, and crunchy - in fact, I wanted to play guitar but heard Jason's tone in the black album and said fsk the guitar, "I want to sound like THAT!" :cool:

    Jason's tone on Load and Reload is ridiculously good. Ampeg + Sadowsky = mmmmmm... tasty!
  18. I dig it! The basslines are cool and the tones are sweet. I love the laidback vibe. And would have thunk that he would be an interesting singer, too!

    Good for him!

    It's OK. Maybe if I listen to it a few times some of the music will bleed into my brain and usually if the songs are good, I'll like them. Of course this is all just my own opinion. But I'm digging the last song "led right". Very Bluesy which is what I like. I do not like the vocals. I cant knock the bass lines at all. They are tight w/ the drums and I like the way they are built. My only complaint is the vocals and the repetitveness of the songs. A little boring.

    I like it tool, I remember reading something about Jason being pretty bored with Metallica musically. I think this was a few months after he left. I remember him complaining about never getting to play in a key that wasn't Eb minor. I guess I can understand that, at least he made his millions first so he can fund all these cool new projects.
