It won't be good. This band hasn't been worth a damn since Ride The Lightening.

Sorry, but I can't knock out Disposable Hero's or Dyers Eve. Ride the Lightning was the best, but they didn't drop off the map until after Justice. There was still some decent material up to that point.

I was just hoping you weren't referring to the black album.

Come on, it had the kid from terminator in it.
I really think that the video for One destroyed Metallica. Some bands don't belong in the mainstream. Metallica got their first taste of real commercial success with that and tried to build on it. The result was alienating the fans that got them to that point and gaining fans that like the flavor of the week. The last 18 years Metallica has had to change their sound to chase fans that won't stick around. If they made an honest effort to return to thrash, they might get some solid fans back.

Youre thinking of a Guns & roses video "you will be mine", something like that.

I thought it was the same kid in both of them.

I'm not saying that the video for one was bad, it just brought the death of the thrash era of Metallica. They saw what mainstream success and the money that could come from it was like.

Absolutely. The "One" video was very much artistically merited, but it also opened up pandora's box, so to speak, they got a glimpse of their potential future success as "sellouts" and couldn't resist the temptation. What pisses me off is that they went to such extent as to actually enlisted Veteran pop-metal producer Mick Rock to produce the black album with the intent to have shorter catchier songs that were more accessible to a broader audience. That move alone showed how deliberate their sudden loss of integrity actually was.
