I still do like this song…

…even if it’s from the album that’s regarded in some quarters as the band’s sellout album.

I’ve probably said this before, but Metallica’s self-titled black album was my introduction to that band; I really like it, but after I got the band’s earlier releases I discovered I liked Metallica as a thrash metal band a lot more than I like them as a hard rock band. (I got Load as a gift one year but I could count on one hand the times I’ve listened to it. Didn’t even bother with Reload; nothing I heard off that album appealed to me.) Anyway, I heard “The Unforgiven” making the dinner run earlier; that’s always been one of my favorite songs off that album, even if it was a ballad. I really should dig that cd out again…

    Having listened to Metallica ever since their first album, I’m not ashamed to say that Metallica is a very good album and that I like it a lot. My favorite songs are “Holier Than Thou,” “Through the Never,” “My Friend of Misery,” and “The God That Failed.” Not an album to be dismissed lightly.

    But, what does it say about me that I have not owned a Metallica album since that one?

    “Holier Than Thou” and “Through The Never” were favorites of mine as well, and “Wherever I May Roam” was a great cut too.

    But, what does it say about me that I have not owned a Metallica album since that one?

    That you thought they went in the wrong direction after that? If you haven’t, though, you really should check out Death Magnetic. It was a huge, huge step back in the right direction. I thought it was the best thing they’ve done since …And Justice For All. It would have fit perfectly between Justice and Metallica. (“All Nightmare Long” smokes, even if it is a thrash-metal rewrite of “Enter Sandman”…)

    I will have to get Death Magnetic, then. If I do, I will let you know.

    Yes. After you get Queensryche’s The Warning.
