Re: Have the members of Metallica ever discussed the classic album "formula".
I don't know if theyve ever discussed it but I wouldn't be surprised if they structured it that way deliberately. They thought it worked well the first time so they did it again. Track order is so rarely talked about by artists since everyone is more interested in asking them about the music itself. But I find that there's always someone in a band that has strong opinions about the order of the songs, and usually the band will just defer to that guy since they dont care about track order that much.
