(and i went to glastonbury)
but you can't knock Enter Sandman and Sad but True as an opening one, two. Awesome.
and loving it.
they werent trying to be thrash on Black - they had been doing the same music for nearly a decade and wanted a change of direction - so they went and created one of the best Metal albums of all time
...and they aren't allowed to change their sound then? Thrash until death?
great cheese on toast
not as good as Master or Justice, but up there with Ride and Kill. Pisses all over everything that followed.
but that's by the by.
What you say about Ride and Kill is true but I will always love the Black album. I'm old enough to have bought Justice on the day it came out and saw them on that tour.
The Black album to me will always be college / uni and it soundtracked some really good times. I also saw them at Donnington around this time and twice on the Black tour. Sometimes music cannot be enjoyed just by what it influenced how it defined a genre, what is their best album. Sometimes music transcends all that. It's also really heavy and I would guess you dislike it because it took them to a much bigger audience hence the sneery radio rock reference. Personally I loved 'my music' being played on radio 1 at that time because you never heard it anywhere before that unless you went out and bought it.
hate snobbery like.
and go off them for awhile Metallica still manage make me love them again, even after 10 years and hundreds of plays.
did you just criticise nothing else matters by using November Rain as an example of a good "selling out" song....you are an idiot, simple.
November Rain is probably the worst song ever written...EVER.
i think i listened to this album so much when i bought it that i broke it for me but every time i go back to i love it again. Yeah its not thrash but its still fuckin colossal.
i'm off to listen to my Bon Jovi albums or something
but in my school days metal years back in the 80's I did love Master, Ride the Lightning, Kill Em All and Justice but then kinda grew out of the whole metal/thrash/whatever scene (not that I'm saying it's immature music, that'd be wrong). I even sold all those cd's and cassettes (yeah cassettes!) years back and have wondered on occassion whether to re-buy Justice for old times sake. Should I bother? Ahhh, I'm flashing back to my school days now and can hear "Master, Master, where's the dreams that I've been after" in my head now. Oh, and I loved the $5.98 Garage Days Revisited EP most of all.
the point at which it all started going wrong. I'm not sure at which point getting Fucking Bob Rock to produce Metallica's albums seemed like a good idea, but it ruined them forever. Of course, he can't take all the blame, but to go from their best, and most progressive, album (And Justice) to that was a massive step back. Isthisinteresting is right, its not about snobbery, they sound like two different bands.
