Old School Fans love both Ride the Lightning and Justice.

New fans only like black...So you have 16 votes split for the old album while the new ones only vote black.

really this should be AJFA vs. RTL

I think I'd probably be considered a new school fan and my favorite Metallica albums are Justice and Master of Puppets.

went with ...And Justice For All, mainly for One. Ride the Lightning is great too, and had i known it was that close would have went with it over Black...boo Black. I mean, it's OK, but doesnt deserve to be in over the others...maybe it can be a low seed at least

Exactly. More people broke into Metallica with the Black album, so it's going to get the "popular" vote, where as most who have voted for the older albums were fans from the start.

But most of the old fans would vote for Master over any of these, so it's rather moot.

For Whom the Bell Tolls and Fade to Black push Ride the Lightning over the top.

Is the poll closed? :-?

I would put them all in, but then there will be people telling me that Pearl Jam, GNR...should get 3 in...

My choice would be Kill Em All, as Four Horsemen is probably my favorite 'Tallica song.


Of the choices listed, it's gotta be Lightning.

Easy way to know if you're a true Metallica fan? What was their first album, Kill 'Em All, originally going to be called? If you know the answer to that without looking it up (and please don't post the answer guys), consider yourself a true Metallica fan. If you don't, well, you may be a fan now, but some of us were fans way, way back. B-)

The answer to this bit of trivia has been the name of one of my fantasy baseball teams for the past 5 years.
