Ok - onto the Black album. A real step down in my opinion..but still respectable. One song to go per round

Silliness is silly.

Through the Never, could easily have been Struggle Within or Don't Tread on Me, all three are filler.

I find "Nothing Else Matters" pretty cringe-worthy so it's got my vote.

Me too. Long and boring and that stupid drum beat. When Jason Newstead bounces his head to it, after that I started skipping that song anytime it played whether the concert or the album.

Agree with this 100%. Will be voting for these right after Sad But True goes.

Through The Never. What's wrong with Sad But True? Obviously it needs to be judged by the standards of this album rather than their earlier stuff - it's a Metallica pop song, but a good one with solid hooks and a catchy chorus.

There's a bit on Year and a Half in the Life Of when Bob Rock is suggesting it could be the first single from the album and Ulrich ridicules him for it. For once Lars was totally right.

I can't decide on one particular track. I've always despised this fucking album with a passion. Fucking reprehensible shite.

The God That Failed.

I think there are some decent songs and riffs on here and the overall material makes it a 3 fist album, but only just. The lazy approach and the sound fucking ruin it. James had started in with the cringe worthy vocal inflections, Lars phones it in, and while it was nice to actually hear the bass, the overall sound is just too dense and flat and about as one dimensional as the artwork, the pacing and "grooves" are too even tempered, which just makes the lifeless delivery all the more apparent. Hammett's lead playing is the only remotely creative thing going on really.

It actually sounds horribly dated compared to something like Master Of Puppets. And its legacy is everything from groove metal and Godsmack to Nickelback. Dull rock.

It's gash and sounds horribly gay and dated.

Once in a blue moon I try to listen to this album objectively, but it's so fucking boring. I voted Enter Sandman, just because I hate it. Through the Never is the only decent song here, and that's only because it's the least worst.

My favourite songs off this are: Through The Never, Wherever I May roam, The Unforgiven (I know not very cult) and Of Wolf And Man...

The Unforgiven is probably the best thing on there, or at least the one that showed some imagination. Brilliant solo.

If only they hadn't done the gawdawful follow ups...

I still like the Black Album but the radio hits have been way way overplayed, so listening to them has lost a lot of appeal.

The more obscure tracks are good though and still bear up well. The album has dated a bit.

Still a 4 fist record however.
