    I maintain that the production on this album is not worse than the production on And Justice For All.

    Hopefully this can be a recurring thing and help put to bed some of the concerns people are having about the communication from the site!

    I like listening to the crew shoot the shit about almost anything. I barely even have time to devote to video games anymore, but I still come back here because I like the GB folks and I like the ways ...
