Personally love the lineup, and I really think that Metallica will give an inspired performance. Just think about it: Rick Ruben is producing the new album (which from what I heard he is trying to pull out the Master of Puppets Metallica instead of the 90's Metallica), they know that the crowd is very smart and even though a lot of people will not admit it they were probably fans of them when they were younger, and they can fill the full 3 hour set easily (dont get me started on possible guests, Les Claypool will be an addition and I think he would be exstatic to slap the bass on the main stage with Metallica.
Also, the rest of the lineup (other than Kanye, hopefully he changes my mind though) is primo. Even if you despise Metallica, the rest of the lineup is strong enough to make this the all around best lineup. Additions I think will be STS9, Primus (or another one of his bands), Mars Volta, and a few more surprises. Also the people that are bashing Mastadon, have you ever listened to them. They are not wrist slashers and are probably one of the best metal bands out right now. Just because they are not as Jam friendly as they used to be, doesnt mean that this is going to be an awful roo.
"That's the big thing about education. People can be book smart, but not really intelligent about anything else. A lot of times they just taking in all this information and regurgitate it. It's much more important to process it and personalize it. To apply it to your world, to your life. You have to walk the walk, or you can't really report about it honestly."
