Pushing 50 and still rockin' like a teen, only now I can afford it and it takes longer to recover.
I still have to put MoP above RtL simply because it's a solid, killer album from start to finish. Lightning, however, has Escape - a song that the band hates and regrets making, mainly because they crumbled under pressure and made it solely as an attempt to crack the radio market. Not that it's a horrible song, but that definitely deserves a half-star deduction.
As for the Dave Mustaine Kill 'Em All thing, mystlyfe correctly pointed out that he's not on that album. Parts of his solos still exist, but are played by Kirk. I think Dave's solo abilities during this period are highly overrated.
He had only two playing modes - fast shredding and faster shredding, and live he was sloppy as hell and was clearly making things up as he went. The stuff he laid on tape for No Life Til Leather was pretty good, but they weren't the solos handed down from God like so many think. At that stage, he seemed to be clearly from the Kerry King school of 'pick as fast as possible and move my fingers around like crazy and see what happens!'
"Negative. I am a meat popsicle."
"I want a beer holder on my guitar like they have on boats." - James Hetfield
Bring us solo Bruce Dickinson, please!
Purificame...no me abandones.....
After listening to parts of the albums a few times, I've come to the conclusion that:
-I prefer Load over Reload
- The albums not metal, but I don't see why it's so greatly despised. It was a major departure from their old sound, but if they want to experiment, then let them experiment.
- While I do enjoy the albums, I have noticed that, unlike the 80's albums, I can't listen to them in one sitting. Maybe they don't catch my interest as well, or maybe it's the long length.
Blow yer' harmonica son
Recently I've noticed that Hetfield's voice sounds very... different on ReLoad. It's like he's singing way higher than he does on any other record. Anyone else notice this? It's most noticeable on "Attitude", "Bad Seed", and "Slither".
