Metallica has released 9 major albums
-Kill Em All
-Ride the Lightning
-Master of Puppets
-...And Justice for All
-Metallica (aka the Black Album)
Metallica also released other projects, such as S&M, where the band recorded some of their greatest hits with the SFSO; Garage, Inc., a strictly cover disc set; and Some Kind of Monster, a documentary on the making of St. Anger.
Metallica is amazing. Don't deny it.
In 2002 (or was it 03?) they released St. Anger, an album which shocked us again at how low they could go. They completely removed the guitar solo (a vital part of the heavy metal song) from all the songs. This resulted in their worst album and their grouping with nu-metal.
One shouldn't forget, however, that their 80's albums are some of the best from that decade, including great tracks like Fade To Black, Sanitarium, One, Ride The Lightning, Battery, The Four Horsemen, Master Of Puppets.
Friend: With the symphony? Yeah, that was cool, pity James's voice has gone down the drain.
