exactly... the fact that the black album is their most successful album doesn't mean shit. it's just an ok album. i hate it when people say they like metallica and when i ask them what songs they like they say "enter sandman" or "sad but true" and know nothing of their previous work. that album just marked the point where they turned to shit and they stayed that way for over a decade. i like death magnetic though
