Since it worked in reverse with the last thread, let's try this again.

I like Ride the Lightening more than Kill Em All or Master of Puppets and you guys gotta deal with it.

The bassist from Harvey Danger just died, so this thread title didn't work either.

I've been listening to a lot of Metallica since the Master of Puppets 30th anniversary on Thursday. My ranking is:

Master of Puppets
Ride the Lightning
...And Justice For All
The Black Album
Kill 'Em All

I love that you didn't include anything after Load.

I liked Kill Em All a lot more than I expected to. It's a bit overlong and the production is shit, but I love the energy there. The following three are all good too, with AJFA similarly suffering from awful production. I don't know what they were thinking. Probably drunk as fuck.

The Black Album zzzzzz

The PJ Harvey track "We Float" is really gorgeous.

Until this moment, I didn't realize that was a band rather than a single guy.

Still though, no more threads referencing death in any form.

Black album is surely slick but that kinda makes it boring.

All of that.

It's interesting to read why there's a drop in quality sound-wise, despite having the same producer as Puppets:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...And..._and_recording

Steve Thompson, who mixed the album, claims that Ulrich was squarely to blame for the inaudible bass and unusual drums. Thompson wanted to be relieved of his mixing duties when Ulrich presented his ideas on the production, but Thompson was not allowed to leave and received the majority of the criticism for the poor sound quality of the record.

The album was noted for its "dry, sterile" production.[21] Rasmussen said that was not his intention, as he tried for an ambient sound similar to the previous two albums. He was not present during the album's mixing, for which Steve Thompson and Michael Barbiero had been hired beforehand. Rasmussen felt that, in his absence from the mixing process, Thompson and Barbiero ended up using only the close microphones on the mix and none of the room microphones, thus causing the "clicking", thin drum sound.[8] Popoff noted that because of the strange production, the bass guitar was nearly inaudible, while the guitars sounded "strangled mechanistic".[22] He saw the "synthetic" percussion as another reason for the album's compressed sound.

No surprise this is Ulrich's fault.

Holy shit, he must have been young.

Grossly underrated band that got unfairly dismissed as a one hit wonder.

Yes, yes it is. Easily one of my favourite songs of hers. That's kind of an underrated (?) album that I believe she has herself more or less disowned. Maybe it's her ATYCLB.

What?! I thought Stories from the City/Sea was her most beloved and accessible album. It rules.
