Posibly the definitive metal band by the end of the 80's, they created the speed/agressive combo that has been the characteristic of metal since. If only more of their albums were like their first 4... anyway, 'til the early 90's they were untochable, but they jumped the shark and became a parody of themselves.

Metallica had one the most unreal stretches of albums ever, rivaling the likes of The Beatles, Led Zeppelin's first 6 records, and Stevie Wonder's entire 1970's catalog. Though after that, the main bright spot is Death Magnetic which is hard to listen to for more than 10 minutes at a time due to it's mixing. Still, Metallica is one of the most legendary and groundbreaking groups to ever live.

Too many ups and downs for me to give a consistent rating. At their best, groundbreaking metal. At their worst, pretentious morons who play the most pathetically stereotypical metal you can imagine.

My first musical love... oh Metallica. I wouldn't be the person I am today without you. This band has gone through a lot of shit with the whole "selling out" business. Maybe they did.. but who cares? They contributed more to the metal genre than any other band, except of course Black Sabbath... and arguably Van Halen.
