Morning! Time for this then…
Lady Gaga; better than Queen
|Bob Marley & The Wailers
|The Rolling Stones
So now lets do something a bit different to what we’ve covered so far. Today’s HGATR is Metallica
The only appropriate answer for the question is One.
1/5 from me. Not my thing at all. Music for people who don’t own any sleeves.
How do they store all their vinyl records?
Used to pretend to like them when I was younger but only really knew a few songs by ‘em
Hearing One on MTV Europe lots when I was 11, in the summer before going into secondary school had a massive impact on my life, future friends and interests in general. 5
Just about scrape a 2
Do very little for me and James hetfield is a grade a weapon, but they obviously were good at what they were doing in the early days, had some fucking massive riffs and staying up til mtv2 started playing naughty videos to see their cover of whiskey in the jar is an abiding memory of my youth
It’s a meh/5 for me. I guess they’re influential? S&M is good but otherwise I can’t imagine sitting through an entire Metallica album in 2019.
Also if metal bassists could stop wanking themselves silly over Cliff fucking Burton that’d be great, ta.
In the words of a wise, wise woman:
Is hetfields the most affected and annoying singing voice in all music?
- Your posh brit schoolers putting on cockney accents (Jamie t, Kate Nash) were worse
3 for the bangers and for the joy of every documentary about them.
3 - Master of Puppets is a genuinely great album, Ride the Lightning is not far behind it, and I can’t argue with singles like One, Enter Sandman, For Whom The Bell Tolls, Wherever I May Roam
Is he? I thought he was meant to be alright and it was Lars Ulrich who was a douche.
3 if only got the supreme Spinal Tap like entertainment of Some Kind of Monster
Oh probably. I always assume its the front man who is the one being a dickhead in public when I don’t really pay attention to the band
