I also like Metallica, but I restrict my liking to the first four albums. Those were truly the hallmark of their musical career, as they were filled with the greatest creativity and metal spirit. From the self-titled album onward, they were becoming more and more commercial. As much as I like And Justice For All, you can even see some small seeds of a more commercial direction. Take "One," for example: although I like it, it's the most commercial sounding song of the earlier Metallica material. I completely dismiss Load, Reload, and any other subsequent "Metallica" albums, as they have ceased to be themselves, especially after Load. What sellouts and traitors to music they've become!
Yes, I'm a Metallica purist. Yes, I prefer hearing "Disposable Heroes" and "Seek and Destroy" over "Enter Sandman" and "Disappear." Such is my opinion, and if you don't like it you know where to kiss.
The many are the many. Respect them as such.
Vor uns liegt ein weites Tal.
Die Sonne scheint mit glitzer Strahl.
