As for today's band standart in terms of showmanship and musicianship you said it yourself, compare a Metallica performance to a Megadeth, or Slayer one and you're already in another league. And I'm not even bringing on the mighty gods in the debate.



Cheers !

Well your first show was the Ride The Lightning tour, so of course its gonna suck from there.

They're still a great live band. I don't want to compare them to their live performances in the 80s and 90s because I didn't get to see those shows. I enjoyed every Metallica show that I attended in the past year or so, and will continue to enjoy them.

To those who keep saying "they play like shit", "they are only a nostalgia band", blah blah, well the thousands of people who are going to the shows on the Death Magnetic tour are not fools. Thats all.

I saw them in '92 and '94 and those were the two best times i've seen them live. The three times i've seen them since they were still very good and i'll admit that live they've lost a few steps live since then. I know Kurt's soloing is sloppy at times now and James voice has nowhere near the power it once did but i'm not sure if they're as bad as some are saying since I haven't seen them yet this tour so maybe they have lost it i'll know for sure next month when i see them.

I can't wait for the Virginia show so I can decide which side of this argument I'm on. I've never been a big Metallica fan (only have AJFA on my computer) so if they can woo me then, in my opinion, they've still got it.
