Metallica put out more good music in the '90s than most people give them credit for (kinda like Bowie's '80s output).
    Yeah I'm talking more about balls-out groove metal tracks like "Sad But True"; that one's a favorite. And Justice doesn't sound THAT bad...if you don't think metal bands need bass players, that is.

    One thing I did like that Pitchfork said about St. Anger, given that Bob Rock played bass on it/produced it, was that: "Bob Rock's bass neither bobs nor rocks."

    teehee.

    I happen to believe that a band is only as good as its rhythm section.

    Well I know that Load, ReLoad and St. Anger were all bad. The Black Album was decent. But Master and Justice are awesome. Anyone who says Justice sucks is just being thick.

    Death Magnetic and Reload aren't bad. Metallica is better than . . . And Justice for All.

    Metallica is definitely catchier than ...Justice. It takes a few listens but when you really listen to it, Justice has its moments. ...Justice is more like progressive metal rather than the thrash metal of Master and Ride the Lightning that makes Metallica a household name.

    Don't bitch at me as if I know nothing about the music industry. I know no matter what, even if you sell a million copies of your album and go platinum in 9204802384392 countries, you're still not making that much money. So whether or not they felt the need to commercialize their products, you can tell Metallica, while being a fantastic band (and I mean that), behind the music they're a bunch of money hungry guys. Just look at the whole Napster controversy, that's more than proof.

    It's a shame I agree with you on so many bands or I would have more motivation to continue arguing.

    The Moon and Antarctica is my favorite album of all time, so...I'll let you go.

    I LOVE YOU. The Moon & Antarctica is definitely in my top 10 albums. But I fear that Modest Mouse may not be able to live up to this album. There new EP just came out today as a matter of fact, and I'm anxious to get my hands on it (or download it )

    Nah, they won't ever match that record.

    The newer stuff is pretty cool and the whole Marr thing is nice, but Isaac Brock is too happy now to write anything that powerful again.
