In my opinion, although The Black Album is one of Metallica's best, "Kill 'Em All" and "...And Justice for All" are both better. To this day, I consider Fade to Black to be one of the best metal songs ever.

U2 fans likewise would argue over their best album. Good comparison between JT and "Black" though.

But enough about Metallica...

As for Green Day, I wasn't talking about you but really more in general the attitude that some people esp. in B&C have towards them just because a lot of teens like them! Okay, so Billy Joe wears eyeliner and a lot of pop punk kids today listen to them. But don't dismiss the ambition and scope of an album like American Idiot cos of that reason! Green Day were the kings of pop punk before any of the stupid mall punker whatever bands showed up! Unfortunately, they have been put in the same boat as all the shitty bands that followed.

And yes, we do share a love for RHCP & Stadium Arcadium! I have nothing personal against you! lol!
In the words of the all-knowing Ashton Kutcher, "Sweet."

It's very simple to me.

The Joshua Tree is a fucking masterpiece.
The Black Album is a fucking piece of crap.

Seriously though, the departures in sounds aren't that different from The Unforgettable Fire to The Joshua Tree really, most of the overhaul to U2's sound occured on UF. Metallica changed their sound dramatically from Justice to the Black Album. They went from epic songs with time changes and really dark sonics to power puff "metal" designed to get on MTV. There is a big difference to me, at least.

I don't agree with it but it's funny.

I know full and well I'm being unfair to that album.
I harbor a lot of resentment for it.
I'll probably never be able to give it a fair shake.

"The Unforgiven" is a great song. "Wherever I May Roam" is really good as well. "The God That Failed" is good. "Nothing Else Matters" is infectious. "Enter Sandman" is kind of played out and not that great to begin with, but it's ok.
