Lars is a bad drummer in the studio and an AWFUL drummer live. He simplifies his beats and often fails, or doesn't attempt, technical components such as double-bass parts. He has even admitted that he doesn't set the rhythm, he follows the tempo James Hetfield sets on guitar. That's not a drummer, that's piss-poor. He has no business behind the kit.

And you started off talking about Metallica being sellouts and making music for the money, then you end talking about how James sings as if he doesn't care if it sounds good or not. Which is it? Is Metallica grabbing cash or do they not care?

"Which is it? Is Metallica grabbing cash or do they not care?"



All they're doing is cash grabbing, because they don't care. How was that hard to understand? It's both

Actually, I don't think they made Load and Reload with money being their main aim. Especially after the reception of Load if they wanted to make more money they would have never released Reload.

Reload when #1 on the American charts. If people hated the band so much, their new record wouldn't have sold so well. Metallica fans might've hated it, but mainstream rock fans ate it up just like they did Load and the Black Album.

Load/ReLoad are good rock albums. If any other band would've released them, they'd be looked at as great. It's only because of Metallica's thrash/metal origins and 'selling out' that they aren't more fondly looked upon.

But fuck em, I enjoy both those albums

Well, yes and no. From the 16 mil. of Black Album they went to 5 mil. with Load. If they had money as their main aim they could have tried to release a Black Album version 2.
