Anybody heard Baroness? I picked up the Red Album cheap while browsing and really enjoyed it. Great music to have going in the background.

Re: Metallica's 'Load' a whole load of crap? I think not.

some of the tracks are kind of unmemorable or just boring, and the longer songs repeat themselves too often without offering something new the way their earlier albums did.


Listen to the riffs. The riffs rock so hard. They had the perfect stoner album on their hands.

Boxing uses a fair bit of legwork. Getting someone off-balance is often the quickest way to a knockout or lots of points from clean hits. Anthony Mundine is a pretty good example, he beat Danny Green basically on the speed of his punches and capitalising on it with good footwork.
