Just a thought.
I mean for an old fan, I'd say they've got to be pretty much up there.
Personally, I think also their Load album was a work of art and the best one they did.

Of all time? I'd say no.
But of acts currently going strong at the moment, I can't think of much competition, as not many acts have the history and back catalogue behind them.
That said though they have had some severe dips in form over the years...

I'm not a huge fan nowadays to be fair because the singles released from the St. Anger album I thought were trash and it put me off listening to them.

Kings Of Leon have the potential to take the mantle if they continue the steady work, they've already achieved so much over a short period of time.

If you didn't listen to last year's Death Magnetic album, you should. It really is like St Anger never happened.

Metallica being the best rock/metal band not in a long shot, they haven't made anything of relevance since probably 91. The first four albums are classics and put them where they are now, its been downhill for them ever since.

Id say it was average, its not their greatest by any means but its not their worst, that spot is reserved for St Anger after all. The album for me just seemed to be lacking something, musically the album is good but the lyrics in some of the songs were goddamn awful. "Cause we'll hunt you down without mercy, Hunt you down all nightmare long" What the hell were they thinking?

The thing with metallica as with most 80s rock bands is when they started the need for them was there so there fan base grew. It rarely matters that theyve faded a bit musically over the last years because there early stuff was so good
