    i forgot to say in that last poll
    i love each and every metallica song
     
  3. "Justice" is definitely my favourite, even though many of you will disagree with me , due to the lack of bass in the mix and the weird drum sound.

    There are some absolutely killer riffs on that album. But I must admit, they did go a bit overboard on the whole "epicness" of some of the songs.
     
  4. although one of my most favorite songs is The Call Of Ktulu from Ride The Lightning, i voted for Master Of Puppets. it's just amazing. Damage Inc. is amazing.

    My vote goes for Puppets. Justice annoyed me with its lack of audible bass, and they seemed to soften up a lot for the black album. I have to admit though, I really like "Low Man's Lyric". (ducking now....)
     
  6. For me, its a toss up between Puppets and Lightning. Both have awesome compositions. Heavy, phat, and dark.
     
  7. I voted Puppets cause as an overall album I liked it best. But I love the riffs and dark sound on Justice. And Kill em All has Anaesthesia on it which is one of the main reasons I picked up the bass. And Lightning has good songs on it too. Their songs had a lot of depth and energy to them. And I really liked Kirk's whacked out solos.

    But everything after that - no way.

    Its impossible for me to choose, I love everything about Metallica. but I'd probably choose sumthing with Cliff
     

  9. Same here, Justice is definatly my fav, despite you can barely hear the bass (if you can even hear it at all!).

    "One" is of my favorite songs ever and "To Live is to die" just friggin rocks. I even like the little acoustic intro and outro on it.
     
  10. I love them all but Justice just seems to be the most pissed off album! :)

    I think every Metallica album is awesome in it's own way. "If you dont' grow, you die." I voted for Master of Puppets, well, because it's the best Meatllica album. ;) My all time favorite song is Orion.

    My vote goes to Black Album.
    The heaviness in the intro to Sad But True just owns me...

    I voted for Justice, the only thing I don´t like about it is the bass, or lack of it..
     
  14. I gotta go with the Kill em All. There's just something about that album. I can't keep it out of my CD player.
     
  15. i'd have to say Justice, just because One is one of the greatest songs ever made, and you can never get sick of it.

    I went for RTL, since it my opinion it's their evilest and most angsty album. Of course you have Fade to Black, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and Call of Kthulu. hehe.. they could have done without Trapped Under Ice though.

    Kill em All rules.RTL and Master of Puppets are good too,and imo when Cliff died Metallica died too.
     
  18. went with master of puppets, althought the first time my lead guitarest heard "dyers eve" he started foaming at the mouth!
