Having not been at all interested in anything Metallica has released in over 20 years, I recently decided to fully immerse myself in the albums that were basically the soundtrack of my youthful rebellion. On reflection, I can still safely say that, despite having little interest in heavy, angry, metal music anymore, I'd still rate the era of Ride the Lightning through to The Black Album as close to perfection in this genre. They seemed to be riding the zeitgeist, if not the lightning, as well as any band in history has. The musicianship was slick with classical sentiments. The lyrics were thoughtful and exposed the youth of the time to themes and imagery that they might otherwise have eschewed in preference of more mundane contemplations. And there was a genuine passion of expression that suggested they weren't a gimmick or novelty act. Unlike Anthrax, they had a more serious cathartic energy (Anthrax were there to have a bit of fun).

Grunge came along, thankfully, and killed off the pretenders; the big-haired cock-rock shemozzle of the 80s. But it wasn't grunge that killed Metallica. Metallica killed Metallica. They seemed to shift their focus when grunge and Indy music took hold when they really didn't have to. They were pioneers that were giving voice to a generation of alienated youths. That generation would have followed a more organic evolution but instead they got a re-created band with only subtle familiar 'Metallicaness' remaining. They had essentially become irrelevant in the 90s just when alienation had become popular. It was around this time that I discovered Radiohead and never looked back. The glaring difference being, of course, that Radiohead have perfected the art of remaining relevant in a seamless evolution of their art. Load was an irrelevant album to the alternative music scene whereas, Kid A, for example, was possibly the most relevant album of the turn of a new millenium. It's a strange comparison maybe but I think Metallica, at their peak, were the most relevant band on the planet.

Not my favourite heavy metal, to be honest.
However they did make some decent tracks such as Enter Sandman and One.

I can't think of another band that released such iconic material as they did can also claim to have release St Anger & other such mediocre albums. Still they found their groove again with Death Magnetic and their best was so great I can't knock them down to much. Their first 5 albums are hard to match & I don't think they ever will.

Groundbreaking and highly influential metal act of the 80's. Kill Em' All, Ride The Lightning, Master of Puppets, ...And Justice For All are undisputed metal masterpieces. Afterwards, it's hit and miss with Death Magnetic probably the closest to being good as the first four.

Truly one of the greatest metal bands ever. Their first five albums were great. Very high highs (RTL, MoP), but also very low lows (St. Anger, ReLoad).

Taking into account only their glory days (first five albums), which is all anyone should get into, they were a really fantastic band. I mean, sometimes I put them on and try to listen ironically, but I just wind up getting super into it.
