Matt von Dark Descent Records hat da eine schöne Analogie zu den ersten drei Alben von Metallica geäußert:
It’s been my feeling for years that the first three Metallica albums are like the first three original Star Wars movies. The first one was an absolute classic. We’ve all watched/listened to it and it’s not the most technologically advanced album (at the time it may have been unlike a lot of what we’ve seen or heard before though). The second album/movie, is much darker with a lot more twists and like the Empire Strikes Back, [Ride The Lightning] is my favorite of the first three.
The last one had some Ewoks… pretty cute and a lot of shit I could do without but when it was on, it was awesome. Here’s proof.
I prefer to end my Metallica listening there. Like Lukas, Hetfield and crew dropped some steamy piles on our collective chests.
Ganz stehe ich nicht hinter der Aussage. Mein liebstes Album ist „… and justice for all“. Aber interessant finde ich den Denkansatz dennoch.
