Ha, I remember liking that song when I thought it was the heaviest thing out there. Just seems kind of juvenile now. Kinda hard to make myway theough the album too.

I'll check that dictionary, but in the meantime I'm impressed - as is everyone else in the world - by your eloquence, obvious accomplishments and success, and the evidence of your blazingly high intelligence.

I'm bringing this back. Here's my current ranking for some of their stuff.
  1. ...And Justice For All
    This album is my favorite of theirs because of its dark, sterile atmosphere, its intensity, and its complexity. I dig the lack of bass on this album, because it adds to the atmosphere. The only tracks on this album that are not perfect are "One", "To Live Is To Die", and "Frayed Ends of Sanity" Those three songs are overly emotional and ruin the atmosphere of the album.
  2. Master of Puppets
    This album is a hair's width less good than the following album. The songwriting on the following album is just way better.
  3. Kill 'Em All
    I'm going to sound really pretentious for a moment and say that this album has some filler on it. It doesn't maintain the same intensity over its 50 minute run-time. Pretty much all the songs on this album are too long, with the "The Four Horsemen" and "Seek & Destroy" being the worst offenders--as bad-ass as the main riff to "Seek & Destroy" is. My favorite part of this album are the middle tracks specifically tracks 3-7, with the inimitable "Motorbreath" being the highlight of this album for me.

Kill Em All is the best Metallica album for when I want raw and in your face thrash. Ride the Lightning is the best Metallica album for when I want thrash with progressive song structure.

if i really had to pick, then it'd have to be Ride the Lightning, followed by ...And Justice for All.

as much as i appreciate Master of Puppets being the favorite of most people i know, i don't think it's anywhere near their best.

I was just listening to Hardwired to Selfdestruct again. It is amazing just how much better than Death Magnetic it is, while still managing to easily be their 2nd worst album overall. Disc 2 is complete crap, save for the final track.
