A second-rate collection of hard rock jams from the ex-Metallica man...

Look, Jason Newsted was teased (and paid) enough over the years by Metallica for the distinction of not being Cliff Burton, so we don’t really need to put the boot in, but we’ve got a few bones to pick here. While Jase and his former mates were busy playing gargantuan stadiums over the last few decades, metal twisted and evolved into a many splendoured thing. It’s hard to see this second-rate collection of hard rock jams setting the world on fire, even with its creator’s pedigree. Not good, not bad, just is. C’mon Jase, you can do better than this.
