I did like Until It Sleeps--The Memory Remains but they can't even be called metal [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by jimmyjames from Friday, June 26, 2009 6:17:46 AM)
Your right there, Metallica will never write another great song. They may come up with some ok ones and a few that sound awesome live but they'll never regain what they had in the 80s. Its gone for them.
They sure did screw up--they had a good thing going there for a while
Sellouts --you bet --they shouldn't even call themselves Metallica anymore--they're not metal anymore & haven't been for a long while--almost like false advertising
Master Of Puppets--One--Sanatarium--Fade To Black --For Whom The Bell Tolls--now that's metal--but the last few cds are so far from the grain so to speak & I seriously don't think they're get it back
Yeah, success took them from being the fans band to being an inaccessible bunch of arrogant cock rock posers, if you look inside the Load cd at the pics they've all got this stupid Kid Rock wifebeater and suspenders pimp look, like Harvey Kietel in Taxi Driver. fuckin idiots. Where are the jeans and the cut off misfits tshirts? Sell outs.
You are so right JJ--I feel they *lost * it when they changed their image --cut their hair ect
they just weren't the same--changing you look should have no effect on the music---( Rob is bald now but he still sounds better than ever)--thye started out good & lost a lot of steam these past years
The problem with Metallica is that the guys in the band think they are more talented than they are, the fact that their music has become irrelevant over the last 15 years proves it. They've run out of ideas, now they just do Metallica by the numbers. also their egos have gotten out of control. Ulrich was always a prick and hasn't changed but Hetfield is the one whose ego has blown way out of proportion to his talent. No wonder Jason Newsted left the band, must be torture hanging around with a couple of asswipes like that.
