Black (don't hurt me!)

My favorite song is probably Fade to Black, but Black has more good songs in general than their other albums.

I just listened to and justice two days ago completely spontaneously. I know nothing about it.

If you're calling black the most varied album I think you're half right half wrong. Their first five albums are equally creative. From instrumentals in RTL and MOP to bass guitar solos in KEA (Pulling Teeth), its's pretty unreal the stuff Metallica puts into their albums.

I personally find the Nothing Else Matters to be crap but sad but true and the unforgiven are some high quality awesome.

I listened to some of those added bass tracks from ...And Justice. I don't know if they did them wrong, but they sounded awful to me...

Kill em' All is my favorite Metallica album.

Although Ride the Lightning is also a good album.

I don't find it particularly varied, it's actually very tight in terms of feel and attitude. It was my introduction to Metallica, it was also (I believe) following Hetfield's first classical training as a singer.

I don't find NEM to be crap, but it's mediocre and overplayed which doesn't help it's case. Of Wolf and Man is probably my favorite song from that album.

The black album was the album that propelled them into the mainstream and is one of the best selling albums of all time, so for many people, it was their introduction. This is also the reason for why most rock stations seem to play songs from this release the most.

I agree 100% with this. The lack of bass on some songs is okay like "...And Justice for All," and "One," but my God I barely notice when I'm listening to songs on AJA because of the lack of bass. "...And Justice for All" kicks some serious ass with the riffs though.

I don't understand, what are you talking about?

At least you didn't say Enter Sandman is your favorite song from Black.

The biggest problem I have with the Black album is that it's like progressive metal with songs like NEM, and I don't like that at all. Of course, Sad But True is still my favorite Metallica song and the Unforgiven has my favorite guitar solo among all of Metallica's songs that I've heard and possibly my favorite guitar solo of all time.
That being said, I find the rest of the album pretty much entirely awful.


Most of the clean and/or progressive Metallica songs I tend to dislike such as Fade To Black.
All of my favorite Metallica songs are the non-progressive songs like–

You know what, this is actually a great time for me to rank some of my favorite Metallica songs:

  1. Sad But True
  2. Ain't My Bitch
  3. Master of Puppets
  4. The Thing That Should Not Be
  5. Orion
  6. And Justice For All
  7. Hit The Lights
  8. The Four Horsemen
  9. Seek And Destroy
  10. Motorbreath
  11. Jump In The Fire
  12. Pulling Teeth
  13. The Call of Ktulu
  14. Battery
  15. The Unforgiven

If The Unforgiven didn't have that awesome solo, I would probably dislike it too.

Every other album.
^ This is inaccurate for me now. It's probably this now:

1.Master
2.Kill Em All
3. And Justice
4. Ride the Lightning
5. Black album

Apparently, I had it backwards. He went and got vocal lessons AFTER the black album (according to the internet, anyway).

I like the progressive stuff, myself. At the opposite end of the melodic spectrum, I don't like thrash metal.

Uh, serious question here, why did you listen to Ride the Lightning if you didn't like thrash metal??

I understand listening to the black album as there's no thrash there, but RTL??
