I've never heard any of their songs, so I voted for the first guy on the ballot.

So let me get this straight, you regularly post on a metal forum, yet you have never heard a Metallica song before...

Rob is just as good technique wise, without a doubt. I believe he could potentially write some stuff that could really push metallica forward, like his skills on spanish guitar are incredible, and he has some powerful funk on bass too. The only thing is, I would imagine he feels very overwhelmed with Metallica, specifically James and Lars. No musician will ever crack what those two have developed since Cliffs death, no matter how good they are.

Is this a joke?
Cliff is the only answer.
Jason isn't bad, but c'mon.
And Robert is just a disappointment.

I think it IS a joke.

Jason was pretty awesome though. I wish they hadn't been such dicks to him, because Trujillo's a turd. Newsted's live performances, especially early on were simply awesome. Exhibit A
