Just because some asshole gets up on a soapbox and says "this album is great, the best!" doesn't mean anything... it's just some asshole on a soapbox spewing bullshit.
At any rate, excellent trolling, dude. The point about the Cliff Burton Band was a good one and I almost bit, but I'm getting too old for this shit. Question though, do you ever go to bed? lol
Yes, it did. Some of you folks on here really are quite dim....
This started with you trying to say I don't listen to Tool for "the right reasons" cause Aenema is my least favorite album. My next comment was "Greatness is a matter of opinion friend. If greatness had a scientific way of being determined do you think Skrillex would be nominated for 5 Grammys? " which somehow you interpreted as me saying the grammys are a good judge of greatness... My point had nothing to do with the grammys, it was just used as an example that what is "good/great" varies from person to person. I could have used many other examples but the grammys just came to mind the fastest cause like you said, they suck at judging music (although there are a handful of folks that are worthy of nomination).
Does that clear things up? Or do I need to further dumb it down?
Also, I wasn't trolling, I can't stand Metallica past And Justice. That's the honest truth. If you like any albums past Justice your listening to Metallica for all the wrong reasons. (see what I did there?)
