Metallica in general are just a bunch of shitty musicians. And I don't care what anyone thinks, I'm not taking that back.

I dont like them as people, honestly, but I do think some of their music is good. I do not, however, think they deserve the hype. But we've already talked about all this...so.....

Oh they have good music, but they were washed up a loooooong time ago, all the hype they still get nowadays is pretty nauseating.

I look at it like this:

Lars is a downright shitty drummer. Kirk can't play a solo that isn't soaked in Wah and generally void of substance and real technique. James has always been a shitty singer, regardless of how he sounded. If I had to choose, I'd actually say he technically peaked around the Black album, but even there I'm not a big fan of his voice. Cliff was a good bassist, a great one considering how few bass players can manage to play both in a metal style and be good, but I don't think I can really say anything about Trujilo (sp?), good or bad. They have had their share of good ideas, but even on most of the revered, "classic" material, I think their songwriting and arranging skills have severely lacked on longer songs. Some of the old longer songs are an absolute mess structurally. I just don't think individually they are remotely above average players, and I don't think they have any special playing or writing dynamic.

Metallica's strength has first and foremost been songwriting.
