Ah, yes. I see The Metallibashers can't refrain from this thread.

To quote the boys: "So Fucking What?"

I don't give a shit what anyone says, and I KNOW that the boys couldn't give two shits, either.

Frankly, anyone who's actually listened to St.Anger cnannot say they are a "warm fuzzy family" band. That album, while probably my least favorite, is the rawest and most visceral album the band has ever done. And yes, that includes "Kill 'Em All". St. Anger deals with rage, addiction, death, violence, incarceration and trying to find your soul. It's a reflection of the life that Jaymz and the band have lead, and of the soul searching that lead them to this ponit in life: Clean, Sober and settling down. Much like myself, I might add.

As they get older and mature, I would hope and expect, that their music will change. That's why they are around, still selling out venues by the tens of thousands of tickets, every night, and many of their earlier contemporaries are either dead or working the club scene, vainly holding on to 17 years old.

Fact is if Metallica wantsto be warm fuzzy band, they will be. They have reached the point, that damn few bands ever do, that they can do whatever they want and the hell with what anyone says. It's truly, always, about the music, which is about life. Which, if you really think about it, is what they've always done. Nice to see in today's politically correct bullshit world, IMO.

They are truly an Icon.

That said, The best five songs, ever, by the Boys are, IMO :

5. One
4. Fade to Black
3. Bleeding Me
2. Unforgiven
1. Nothing Else Matters.

It's all good! I for one like their new album. I don't want them to crank out stuff that sounds just like their stuff from the 80's. If I want to hear that, I can listen to one of their old albums. They are one of the only bands that can release a modern "metal" album and be successful.

Ok, this is a tough one because there are so many...

1. Master of Puppets
2. Sanitarium
3. Seek and Destroy
4. For Whom the Bell Tolls
5. Dyer's Eve
6. Breadfan (it's a cover, but I still love it)

I learned how to play all of the above songs. Metallica inspired me to learn how to play. I never pick up my guitar without playing at least part of Master of Puppets.

Metallica...

Hmmm, aren' these the same guys who would allow, even request that fans make videos of their concerts in the early days, in order to promote themselves...

And then later, once they had made it big, were the leading force behind shutting down Napster?

I fucking HATE Lars Ulrich. He is quite possibly the biggest famous jerkoff on the planet.

Come on now. "Master of Puppets" is their best album. Just my opinion. I like every thing from "...And Justice For All" and back. Everything after that just went from bad to worse. I can't listen to "St. Anger" because of Lars and his damn snare drum. Whoever told him it sounded good set up that way should be shot.

many bands promote taping of their live shows yet still enforce copyright on their studio albums
IIRC metallica still allows taping at their shows (I may be wrong ... it's been a while)


I've got no problem with them going after people who are copying their music without permission.

Rob Trujillo, I believe.

Cliff Burton was a god, newsted was OK, the new dork needs a beating, as does the rest of the band these days. Everything after "..and justice for all" has sucked.

And to those that are too dense to realize it, Garage Days was a cover album, so it hardly counts. Every song on that album was better from the original artist.

In response to the Napster deal...

Straight from Lars' mouth: "I don't care if people download Metallica's music off the internet, just wait until the song is released."

His problem was with the people (who most likely worked at the studio) who released "I Disappear" on Napster before the song was even finished and released. How would you feel if you were working on a song and you heard it on the radio before it was released?

Oh, and to add, "Metallica" (called the Black Album) wwas the best album the band has ever done (to date). Best songwriting, nice production (which had never been done on a Met album before) and tightest, most mature sound.

"Master" is a very close second, with "Ride" and "Kill" not far behind. "Justice", while having a couple of great songs (Blackened, One) the songs just got longer and more involved, and after a while, the songs just blend together.

The "Loads" would have been better if they had taken the best from both albums and made one very good album out of it.

I like "St. Anger", but I don't love it. But I understand why the band had to make it. I like some of the lyrics, I just can't adjust to the sound, but I see where they were going. Just don't do it for me. I'll listen to a few cuts occasionally.

St. Anger, though good, is a but of a turn off to most folks because it is raw.... The vocals were recorded live, the snare sounds shitty, and very little "production" was done on it. If it had actually been "produced" (smoothed up), I think it would be one of their best albums. I can't for the life of me figure out why they would release what amounts to an unfinished album.

35.

Been A Metallifuk (the band's affectionate reference to their hardcore fans) since high school, about 1985 or so. Since the band and myself are close to the same age, I've seen them go through roughly the same maturing process I have, and I have had a few of the same problems they've had too. Somehow their music always just seemed to "fit".

Maybe that's too deep...Most of the time it was just best for blowing out the damn speakers.

Those guys are extremely talented, the music while ususally hard, has something to say (Unlike most of their contemporaries) and they love their fans as much as the fans love them.

Met Rocks.

Maybe. But even when they made a successful crossover to the mainstream and became huger than ever, they still allowed fans to bootleg concerts.

I agree that everything from the Black Album on has been excessively watered down and too soft. They just don't have the same edgy, borderline insane sound to them the first four albums did.

Top 5 favorite? That's really tough.

1. One
2. Fade to Black
3. Blackened
4. Four Horsemen
5. Master of Puppets
6. Seek and Destroy...
...too hard to specify only five.

You could put everything from the first four albums in a hat and draw five at random without being too far off the mark for me. Those songs all had a certain amount of angry/frustrated contempt for reality that was expressed with no equal.

....did I mention that I like Blackened?
