    Metallica's quality of music means diddly squat in my book. In my opinion they have went down-hill lately since they released a new album. As far as the individuals of Metallica, they have dissapointed me in too many ways and have lost my respect as musicians.

    I am a very serious musician, and have been writing music for about 7 years. My main goal in life is to become a successful musician by getting a record deal and that has been my goal for almost 10 years. To see a band such as Metallica that I have respected for so long as musicians and human beings, act as they have in the past is disappointing.

    The fact is I lost respect for them way before this, because they have adopted the idea of being musicians for money and not because they love doing it. I would PAY a record label to send me on tour, if only they provided my food and a place to stay. Bands like Metallica think of money way to highly. Bands these days are no different than basketball players and baseball players all they care about is the millions they make a year. People are starving, living in slums, making $5.15/hour, going without jobs for years at a time on unemployment or welfare and these guys have mansions and 10 cars but complain that they made $50 million last year instead of $150 million. I will never agree with that.

    Come on now...their name has been blackened in many peoples eyes....every since the 'black album' was released.

    I remember several years ago, before their videos were ever played on MTV, them saying this would never happen. Its to mainstream....too commercialized. We are not into that! Look what happened. The taste of money sure is sweet ain't it?!?
    Kinda like a crack head, gotta have more and more and more.

    But now they have many videos being played and are so money hungry they would sell their souls for another million! I think if anything they will loose more money in record sales and concert tickets now. Just because of their attitude towards everything.

    I have seen them in concert 9 times. I wouldn't go to another one of their shows if you gave me a free ticket!
