Only recently did I actually enjoy Things that Should not Be. Still dislike the first track though.

Overall though, I have no idea what album is my favorite.
So you're saying you don't like Battery? Thats a great song on a great album. I can listen to that album on repeat and it still comes across as a perfectly constructed album of which every song is very well done.

Default new*** here

Greetings, new*** commenting. First post on banter. Thought this was a good thread to start on considering there has been nothing but Metallica on a local radio station lately. It has certainly given me time to feel nostalgic and personally review said band. Kill 'Em All was what originally "put the hook through my cheek" so to speak. "Whiplash" in particular was and is now to an extent still a favorite. Didn't care too much for Metallica from '84 to '86. "...And Justice for All" was a decent album considering lyrical improvement. Let me just say here that all bands are constantly improving to some degree in my opinion. "Black Album" was the last album I ever really cared for. Everything afterwards besides a few singles was tasteless. All in all "Black Album" takes it home.

Ever since I saw Metallica open for Ozzy (master of puppets) on the Ultimate sin tour I have always thought Masters was the best album. Cant really stand anything after And Justice.

Kill Em All. So far I haven't heard a single thrash metal album like it, except for ''Killing is my business....and business is good''. I prefer both those albums to any other metallica or megadeth album.

I have to go with Ride the Lightning for now, though my favourite of theirs changes between their first three albums every now and then. My next favourite of theirs is And Justice for All, then my interest in everything afterwards by Metallica lowers to the point of rarely listening to anything post-AJfA. I guess the next tier would be Load/ReLoad, then TBA/Self Titled, then Death Magnetic, then my least favourite two albums by them being St. Anger and Lulu.

I chose Ride the Lightning because it had the rawness of their first, but was just generally better than KEA, with most of the Metallica songs I can still enjoy almost as much as when I first heard them.

I think that 1st Megadeth album was poorly made. Especially Mechanix; what a piece of bleep!

"Imagine you were at my station
And you brought your motor to me
Your a burner yeah a real motor car
Said you wanna get your order filled
Made me shiver when I put it in
Pumping just won't do ya know luckily for you

Whoever thought you'd be better
At turning a screw than me
I do it for my life
Made my drive shaft crank
Made my pistons bulge
Made my ball bearing melt from the heat
Oh yeah yeah

We were shifting hard when we took off
Put tonight all four on the floor
When we hit top end you know it feels to slow
Said you wanna get your order filled
Made me shiver when I put it in
Pumping just won't do ya know luckily for you

Whoever thought you'd be better
At turning a screw than me
I do it for my life
Made my drive shaft crank
Made my pistons bulge
Made my ball bearing melt from the heat
Oh yeah yeah
Oh!

I'm giving you my room service
And ya know it's more than enough
Oh one more time ya know I'm in love

Whoever thought you'd be better
At turning a screw than me
I do it for my life
Made my drive shaft crank
Made my pistons bulge
Made my ball bearing melt from the heat
Oh yeah yeah!

Imagine you were at my station
And you brought your motor to me
With all four on the floor I feel what's in store

Whoever thought you'd be better
At turning a screw than me
I do it for my life
Made my drive shaft crank
Made my pistons bulge
Made my ball bearing melt from the heat
Oh yeah yeah!
"

Even the lyrics stink!

****. That.

The first Megadeth album was fantastic. Never again was Dave that pissed off. Whether or not later albums were more polished Killing Is My Business was pure raw rage and energy. And I will forever love that album for the main riff to the title track. Aw man, and "Last Rights/Loved to Deth" is such a monster. Thrash perfected. Dave might be an egomaniac who all but says that he invented thrash, but with a song like that he may have the slightest point. ****, they even made a Nancy Sinatra song bad-****ing-ass. Killing Is My Business might even be my fav Megadeth album. Either that or Rust In Peace.

Edit: And what is this post doing in a Metallica thread?

I think Rust in Peace was bad, too.

To your edit: What is any other band name doing in any other thread not dedicated to said band? I think you might get more on this if you ask Dylstew, the poster in which I quoted...

Hard to get an album that has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide? But then again maybe it's all sold out.

Of course it was poorly made, it was grassroots metal, but that doesn't make it a bad album.
