i choose lulu!! (obviously joking) I mean this is too hard. i'm a die-hard metallica fan, and i listen/play every single record atleast one or more a day! but if i had to choose, i'd choose death magnetic, just simply because it was their first record (in many years) to return to their traditional thrash roots!. Thanks.
what a disgrace. kill em all sucks. first of it sounds like megadeth. it sucks. thrashy crap. production sucks. its just a band starting out trying to find itself. ride the lightning was the true first metallica album. master of puppets is a classic of course. and justice for all is the best one bar none. metallica is a great step into the limelight. load and reload display the absolute prowess and high point of the band, it features the bands most impressive long, exhausting songs and best playing as well as their best singles. garage inc is definitely a nice addition.
