Absolutely agree with this. There's an incredible amount of hate for these albums but I fucking love them. I think the problem that people have isn't that they DON'T like the music, or think they are bad songs... it's just that they weren't the albums that they wanted Metallica to release. It'd be like if Meshuggah dropped their new album and it sounded like Incubus "Science". Great music, but not what we want to hear come out of Meshuggah. The House That Jack Built, Prince Charming, Attitude, Where the Wild Things Are... fucking GREAT stuff. And the production on the Garage Inc songs is amazing too, especially the Mercyful Fate medly.
