I love the old stuff. Everything up unitl the black album was classic. I know everyone says they hate the new stuff because metallica "sold out". I don't think they necessarily sold out, I just think they make absolute crap music now. They don't even remotely sound like the same band.

I'm an avid Metallica fan, I like and own every album they put out EXCEPT St. Anger. The only thing Metallica about that album is the name on the cover.:shk:

ever see the video: cliff 'em all ??
dedicated to cliff burton, their first bassist (and best)
was on :: kill em all,no life till leather,ride the lightning, and master of puppets,
and garage days rerevisited .....he was awesome!!!
anyways,, on this "cliff em all" video, mr. james hetfield says
:we're not gonna SELL OUT to the big "major labels" record companies:
and i've noticed, (after being a die hard long time fan) that yes indeedee,
that is exactly what they have done,
i noticed the difference since the black album,
and they seemed to just suck ass after that.....
with the exception of a FEW good songs (2x4, ronnie,....maybe 2-3 more)
they used to not care what the record companies said.
and used to play for the fun of it (for the people)
now again, they "suck ass" and are kissing the record co's butts,
and bans downloads,, and since they do it like the record company wants,
it is pretty much (( not their music anymore))
its how theyre TOLD it sounds good.....by someone NOT IN THE BAND!!
and justice for all, (excellent album) displays the team,
starting with a new bassist, "jason newstead".........he's good too,
but in this album it sounds like they are teaching him (starting over again)
instead of picking up on where they left off with clifford
if cliff were still here they still would say F*@* the record co's,,
and their music would still be some hard core, kick ass, knock down, drag out,
killer #... alas, i personally feel their band died with cliff..

My favourite song is whiskey in the jar from Garage inc , I love it , one of my favourite songs of all time .
Not digging St Anger though , as seems to be the cencus of opinion here.
My favorite album is Load... Love it!
And not a major fan of St. Anger either.. A few good songs on it, but Hettfield isnt one with the music like he ususally is, and their new drums sounds like crap.. O_o

I was totally disappointed when Load came out. To me, it sounded more like alternative rock crap than hard, fast, heavy metal. I haven't bought their albums since and I downloaded all their older material onto my comp.
