I have three out of four Livemet versions of the new one (Berlin, Arnhem, Donington) Sound is excellent, I think Donington is probably the best and clearest version of the song.

My personal opinion; some very cool ideas, some excellent riffs but way too many ideas in one song, way too long and (some people will not like to hear this) it's obviously a St.Anger left over. I think Rick Rubin could do a lot of good to it cutting it down to say 5 mins and streamlining it a bit. Otherwise great that they played a new one ! wink

I think it's a lot better than most of the St. Anger stuff. I'm not a huge fan of St. Anger, the only songs I listen to off of it frequently are My World and Unnamed Feeling.

I was gonna say the same thing when I heard the early audio boot of it (its debut in Berlin) It had a sort of St. Anger type feel to it.

I just recently saw a version of it on YouTube from the June 8 show in Arnhem - that was really cool especially the part where they've just finished the intro and Rob said hes got the wrong bass guitar and tells the crowd to hold on till they get the right bass player. mutley

I was there when it happened and it was prett hilarious indeed ! Especially when Rob mentioned that they were going to bring out the right bass player instead of bass guitar ! wink

Your right the song does drag on a bit (9 and a half minutes or so) No doubt it'll get chopped down a bit in pre-production.
