Years ago when I was really digging them (I'm talking junior high here), Ride the Lightning was my favorite, which I picked up after buying and digging the hell out of Pastor of Muppets. "Fight Fire with Fire" might be their coolest song.

I'd also around that time downloaded numerous songs from Kill 'Em All off Napster (lol) but downloading on 56k kinda kills the desire to download so I don't think I've ever heard the album start to finish. By the time I picked up ...And Justice for All used, I just didn't care much anymore. Plus the production on that album is awful and I'm a studio nerd.

Too many of hte songs on St. Anger are too long, that's its real fault. And Lars' snare.

The edited version of "Some Kind of Monster" is actually really awesome and worth checking out if you haven't already.

Some one I know was randomly listening to a track off of St. Anger a couple weeks ago, and I was sitting there realizing that it was probably the first time I had ever sat down and heard an entire song from the album. I'd only ever heard random samples of it here and there. Sure, some parts of the song were pretty bad, but then there were a few parts that I thought, "that's cool, maybe this album isn't as bad as I thought it was."

I think the main riff in Some Kind of Monster fucking rules. Unfortunately, they had to make that song like 9 minutes long when it should have been 4 or 5.

Sometimes a riff is so awesome it needs to go on for 9 minutes (Opeth)

Yeah it works if you're an atmospheric band like (old) Opeth or black metal or something. St. Anger is basically a garage band.

I agree with Cghost, Opeth are fucking boring

I don't care for Opeth either.

I agree about the length of Metallica's songs; that's probably one of my biggest complaints about St. Anger. I actually feel like that's a problem Metallica has had for awhile though; some of their songs on their '80s albums could have been trimmed in length as well, especially on ...And Justice For All. Boy, could that album drag on and on at times

Justice's songs are just right in length outside of maybe a one or two.
Fav album of theirs is a tossup between Puppets and Justice.
I thought Street Anger was above average. Well the first 4-5 songs. Then it gets forgettable.

Opeth and Metallica definitely both fucking suck, but I don't know which sucks harder.

That's another thing I disliked about ...AJFA: the craaaaaaappy length of the songs. Talk about a snoozefest.

I wouldn't change a thing about any of Metallica's work pre-Load. The song lengths for everything are fine.

And I'll always love Opeth too.

AJFA is where the song lengths started to be a problem. The title track doesn't need to be 10 minutes long. Before that, the only song I think is too long is Disposable Heroes.

I didn't really care for the songs I heard from Death Magnetic at the time of its release, but I suppose it's worth giving another shot. Are the Guitar Hero song rips still widely available?

Yeah I think so. Death Magnetic kicks so much ass and I don't know why people gave it such a bad rep (though I understand the production complaints, that pissed me off too). The music is great though. "That Was Just Your Life" was my favorite song from that record.

I enjoyed Death Magnetic at first but those songs got old and stale QUICK.

Some did (The End of the Line, The Judas Kiss), but most didn't.
