Metallica: The Essence of QA

Linda Wilkinson explains that Metallica expresses the essence of QA:

Thus the Metallica bass line. It’s like, 4 notes, repeated over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over.

By the end of a Metallica song, I’m a headbanger, all right. Banging my head against a wall until my brains leak out my ears, screaming. I hate anything excessively repetitive. That means I’ve never been fond of instrumental jazz. One instruments flogs the crap out of a theme, then another instrument picks it up and does the same thing. While I appreciate the skill of the musicians, the music itself gives me a headache.

In my experience, that is what the job of QA in a nutshell.

If you’re looking to fill out your QA playlist, remember my suggestions.

    Apparently Wilkinson is describing some other Metallica than the one which I know. The CDs I have might as well not have a bass player, as it’s completely missing from the mix.
