Joe: I'd rather strap myself to the wing of a turbine. I'm going to listen to Metallica, they're fucking epic!
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.
