I am even with you on Justice. While there are some songs that I absolutely cherish (wait....let me pull out the album...): Blackened, ummm...Shortest Straw, I can't tell you how much it hurt when they just didn't "let loose" with something like Harvester of Sorrow.
Check this out. I even bought this stupid double CD just for Metallica's version of "Stone Cold Crazy!" Don't know if it shows through the pic but I spent almost $30 for Michael Feinstein, John Zorn, FASTER FUCKIN' PUSSYCAT and some 17 others for one song!! Yeah, I WAS a diehard fan. Makes me wanna puke now. On that note, anyone want a couple of unreleased Tracy Chapman songs? HAAAAA!!!!

lol! Yeah I hear ya Guido....you remember like it was yesterday when Metallica was anything but a "joke"...and as you know they were a hard serious metal band.
I remember bitching about the 1988 "And Justice For All" album,just because they crossed over and did a video(One)...and how it wasn't as good as thier first
3 albums Kill "Em All,Ride The Lightning and Master Of Puppets.......but looking back now...after seeing and hearing everything that came out after And Justice...
it makes "And Justice For All" look like a jewl and makes me wonder...wow....if I only knew how much worse this band was going to get,I would of enjoyed the
And Justice album a little bit more for god's sake!!! lol!!!!
Oh, AMEN again, bro! "Used to be a force, not a joke." Hit the nail right on the head for me.
I always buy anything I like to support (audio, video, games) but I had a buddy pick up the St. Anger CD for about $1 USD on the streets of México. I should have bought a Coke here instead. Like someone posted somewhere on the net...it seems like the killed Kirk! What a waste of time and a buck!
