05.20.14 How To Recognize Good Guitar Playing?

How To Recognize Good Guitar Playing?

I'm trying to deepen my musical tastes, and my understanding of technicality in music. I play drums (so I have that instrument covered), and I can get by with most other instruments, but I cannot identify a unique guitar riff/solo from a generic/bad one. Can someone at least try to explain the differences without telling me to just learn guitar. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
1Megadeth
Rust In Peace
2Megadeth
The World Needs a Hero


How is one Rust In Peace (which I do like more for other reasons) guitar hailed, while The World Needs a Hero's is called rehashed?
3Metallica
Ride the lightning
4Metallica
Death Magnetic


I actually prefer Death Magnetic (even though I love both). Again, why is the guitar so much better in the earlier one?
5Chevelle
La Gargola
6Chevelle
Hats Off To The Bull


I enjoy both albums pretty equally. How is La Gargola's guitar experimental while Hats Off To The Bull is generic?
7Demon Hunter
Extremist
8Demon Hunter
Storm the Gates of Hell


Like them both equally; why is extremist so much better (guitar wise).
9Guns N' Roses
Appetite for Destruction
10Winger
Winger


Obvious which one I like better (GNR), but both have solos. What is different.
11Linkin Park
Hybrid Theory
12Nonpoint
Recoil


Enjoy Recoil a lot more, but how is Hybrid Theory's guitar simple/generic?
13Bullet For My Valentine
Temper Temper
14Bullet For My Valentine
The Poison


Both have solos. The Poison is always thought to be significantly better (I can't stand either though).
15Avenged Sevenfold
City of Evil
16Avenged Sevenfold
Hail to the King


Again, solos in both. One is beloved, one is hated. Why?
173 Doors Down
The Better Life
183 Doors Down
3 Doors Down


First album is thought to be their best (if you can call it a peak). What is the difference (besides the grungier sound). Technicality wise.
