    Got this tune playing in my head today.

    Boy, Metallica was great once upon a time. I had this album on cassette. :cool:

    Master of Puppets and Ride The Lightning were the pinnacle of greatness for this band, IMO. I think I'll download them both and put them on my iPhone.

    When was that time? Lol

    Watched a special on Nirvana's Nevermind album. It was fascinating to be reminded how "pop"y the songs were and how good a voice Cobain had - all masked under heavy overdriven instruments, beating drums and a gravel tone to his voice.

    That ended with the black album.

    Yeah, I don't think that time existed. I like a couple of their songs, but it's literally just a couple.

    I agree completely. Everything before the black album kicked ass......the new stuff is fluff.

    Give me Slayer, Testament, Exodus, Forbidden, and Overkill anyday of the week and twice on the weekends over Metallica.

    Kill 'em All was pretty good though.

    I must be weird. I liked "Load" and "Reload".

    Haven't liked anything since.

    The only album I really didn't like was St. Anger. That being said, I think Master of Puppets & Ride the Lightning were their best.

    Back when I did metal reviews for different alternative music rags James Hetfield sent a demo on a cassette tape :rofl:, of "No Life Till Leather." It morphed into "Kill'em All."

    I personally feel the best of Metallica died with Cliff Burton. :crying: Stoner? Oh yeah! But he had a heart of gold, and was the most inovative bass player of that era.

    I still have some other things they sent. I think my fave is a demo of "Fade To Black" on green vinyl.

    I had a bunch but gave them away. :faint:

    Agree w/ most comments above. "Old Metallica" (pre-black album) landed in a metal sweet spot. THey were hard and fast at times, but played their instruments well (except Lars), had good arrangements and melodic passages and weren't obsessed w/ speed and detuning like some modern "metal" bands. ANYONE that says that the first five metal albums weren't insanely influential to modern rock is lying. I still get chills when I hear the opening to "One" and I've heard it a hundred times. Much respect to those guys!

    We used to play afew Metallica tunes back in the day. I agree with most that they have really faded after the black album. I always liked the garage days album and the tune bread fan. My favorite album by them would probably be and justice for all. My only hang up with them has always been Kirk hammet. I've been A guitar player most all of my life and always felt he was mediocre at best...my 2 cents loL

    If you have Netflix, hit Watch Instantly and search for "classic albums". The Black Album is covered on one of the episodes. It's so overproduced, it might as well be a pop record.

    For me they peaked on the trip to NY to record an album but Mustaine left and that was the beginning of the end.
