In my opinion, this is the best album that Metallica has released ever. All of its songs are great, their riffs, their solos, and their lyrics! What do you guys think about this album?

Track Listing (not in order)

1. Enter Sandman (my favorite)
2. Sad But True
3. Nothing Else Matters
4. Of Wolf And Man
5. My Friend of Misery
6. Dont Tread On Me
7. The Struggle Within
8. The God That Failed
9. Unforgiven
10. Wherever I May Roam
11. Holier Than Thou
12. Through The Never

I really love it. I even liked load and reload, and even parts of St Anger (as well as S&M and Garange, Inc) so I guess I'm blasphemous in the eyes of most metallica fans, though I love their early stuff too. Great band. I don't think it's their best album, which IMO is probably ...and justice for all. Followed loosely by ride the lightening, master of puppets, metallica, load, kill em all, reload, and st anger. I suppose.

[edit] I think the track listing in order goes:

1 Enter Sandman
2 Sad But True
3 Holier Than Thou
4 The Unforgiven
5 Wherever I May Roam
6 Don't Tread on Me
7 Through the Never
8 Nothing Else Matters
9 Of Wolf and Man (my favorite track on the album)
10 The God That Failed
11 My Friend of Misery
12 The Struggle Within

yes Master of Puppets its an artwork, but i didnt mention it since i dont like some of its songs, unlike the black album, which i like all of them. But yes, RIP Cliff Burton, he was one of the best.

I'm an "old" Metallica fan. Their 1st 4 albums(Kill 'em All, Ride The Lightning and Master of Puppets, ...And Justice For All) are all classics.

I'm not one of those that think Metallica sucks because they "sold out", either. If they want to change their style to make more money or for whatever reason, that is up to them. I just enjoy the early stuff much more than the later stuff.


IMO, 1st 4 albums>>>>>>>>>>black>>>load>>>reload>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>st. anger.

yea i also prefer the 1st 4 albums (plus black album biggrin.gif) over load, reload and st. anger.

I just hope that the new album thats coming this year is more "old metallica" oriented. Kirk said in an interview that they got crazy fast riffs and some pretty crazy solos as well.

Yes this is one of my all-time favourite albums. Also one of the first albums I owned! biggrin.gif

The songs are so thoroughly written and arranged - it's incredible...

By the way - I moved this topic to the new board "Bands & Artists" as it isn't really are review, but rather a discussion.

@fretdancer-
the album is, imo, thier least metal album to date. Most of the songs are very hard rock, but not the metal that metallica is known for. I have nothing against hard rock, but metallica should be doing metal, not hard rock.

Their LEAST metal? Have you listened to load and reload? Those are like completely hard almost bluesy rock. I think there's elements of their earlier stuff on the black album, but also elements of what would appear in load and reload, kind of an in between album. I could see Holier Than Thou, Through the Never, Of Wolf and Man, and The Struggle Within on some of their earlier albums, everything else sounds fairly similar to what would come on load and reload IMO. But I like those two albums smile.gif

@Kris: Yea, thats what amazes me most, the lyrics. And how are they combined with the riffs + solos. So much inspiration there, James Hetfield is a great song writer, I get most of my inspirations from his songs tongue.gifsmile.gifbiggrin.gif

Also kris, ive been practicing your Kirk Hammet solo tricks lesson, its great! Since one of my greatest influences is Kirk Hammet i knew that i had to check that lesson out! Thanks kris!:)

@THe Uncreator: Of Wolf And Man is such a great song and its so sticky! But no doubt about Unforgiven, its such a relaxing, calm and great song. And the Solo is unbelieavable.

@lespaulrocker: yea i understand that The Black Album is not very Metal, like Kill Em All for example. And like JVM said, some of its songs still have a metal touch like the old days.

But the least metal album? Load, no doubt about it. Tho i like some songs from Load.

yea no doubt about it, allthough kirk says that the solo's in this album are a bit overplayed. I think it was because of the recent death of burton.
