An interesting question, and one I almost didn't answer as AJFA was the last Metallica album I ever purchased and the one where I thought the band first started to go downhill. I absolutely loved MOP and believed then (and still believe now) that the band just wasn't the same without Cliff. The only song back then I even remotely liked was "Blackened" - I felt the lyrics to the title track were overly whiny/preachy and resented all of the "new" fans at the concerts who only seemed to know "One." That being said, with the benefit of hindsight (and their catalog since), AJFA seems like a classic. I'll go with "Blackened" and the title track (by a nose over "One").
