Oh....Laz - I read ur post all the way thru, agreeing with all of it, and then u left yourself down with the final paragraph!

Seriously, you don't like ANY of the songs off the Black album? 'My Friend Of Misery' is my pick....
And I know so many ppl slag Load and Re-Load, but both have at least a couple of classics imo... 'Fuel' 'Devils Dance' 'Fixxxer' 'Mama Said' 'King Nothing' 'Ronnie'.......ok, im taking the piss with the last one there!

And S&M to me, was a triumph! One of the best albums of the 90's. 'No Leaf Clover'.....

Garage Inc. had a few decent covers on there, Disc 1 being my fave. 'Astronomy'....

Ok St. Anger flopped, but I still think if this had been a debut album from a brand new band, it would've been praised in the metal world. But cos ppl expected a certain style from Metallica, they were easily dissapointed. Which is a shame I think, as the album does contain some almighty tracks. But no way enough to make this anywhere high in their top5 album list.

Ride the Lighting is teriffic

Master of Puppets is unbelievably brilliant. Hands down Metallica's best effort.

PS, I really liked the Black album & like a few tracks from St Anger

Dont hide my son - Black was a superb album, and St Anger had 1 or 2 blistering songs on there!

Metallica went from crafting long epic songs about a myriad of subjects to little radio friendly bites about "personal" stuff or other less-interesting subjects. Go look at the average song length on those first 4 albums and then compare that to The Black Album and everything after. The recordings themselves became less innovative, less layered, much less cool. It's as if they regressed to a more infantile type of songwriting.

While I'll give them credit for rocking full throttle on St. Anger, where are the SONGS? The whole damned album was little segments edited together with Pro Tools. That's not music. I appreciate Hetfield's rehab inspired lyrics and there are a few decent selections but it's not even a gnat on the ass of Puppets.

Let's talk about Iron Maiden, who mutated their sound in a more natural way, and didn't betray what made them so great. 25 years later and they still sound like themselves.

ORION. Hard to argue against this. Orion is their best instrumental, and maybe stronger than several of the songs with vocals on this album. Cliff Burton rules, and although Hammett is the lead guitarist, Hetfield's solo is quite soulful on this one.


laz

Orion This song takes me to another place....

I've never been able to get into St. Anger, myself. Maybe I just didn't give it a chance.

...And justice for all is Still my favorite Metallica album. But RTL and MOP are both legendary.

Still have the good old LPs and Metallica autographs in my little Metallica box.

I hope the next Metallica album will kick some major ass. I have high hopes because of Rob Trujillo.
