Top Ten Most Overrated Metallica Albums

Metallica is great, some of their albums are very overrated.

The Top Ten

1 Master of Puppets

Definitely not as good as Ride The Lightning.

I only like battery,sanitarium & MOP.
Lars' drumming was boring.
MOP is a good song but it's 2mins to long.
It's just Metallica in slow & more melodic

It's just an opinion

I never really got this album's popularity. Everyone keeps saying, "This is THE Metallica album," "This is my favorite Metallica album," "This is the true definition of Metallica," "Albums like Load, St. Anger, Lulu are nothing like Master of Puppets," etc. It's really starting to annoy me. Especially the title track. I don't get how everyone likes this song. There are other Metallica albums from the '80s, Kill 'Em All, Ride the Lightning, and...And Justice For All. Master of Puppets is not the perfect album as mentioned. I'd say the best song from Master of Puppets can't even beat the worst song from Ride the Lightning.

Fight Fire With Fire vs. Battery

Fight Fire with Fire wins!
Better intro, (the intro in Battery sounds fake) Better drums and thrashier sound. (I'm not saying heavier is better)

Ride the Lightning Title Track vs. Master of Puppets Title Track

Ride the Lightning wins!
It's not as repetitive ...more

2 Metallica

Take Enter Sandman and put it on Load instead of a weaker song, than replace Escape with Blitzkrieg on Ride the Lightning, and put Escape on the black album between Unforgiven and Wherever I May Roam: you get an underrated album. - Alkadikce

Not the whole album is overrated. Only Enter Sandman and Nothing Else Matters. - Userguy44

3 ...And Justice For All
4 Garage Inc.
5 Ride the Lightning

Nah, this album is perfect. - Userguy44

6 Reload

So according to the voters, the least successful albums are the most overrated.

Edit: when I wrote this Reload, Load, Death Magnetic and St. Anger topped the list - Alkadikce

7 St. Anger

Not overrated - Disturbedpotato

It was just Nu Metal.
Most people hate it because they hate difference.

It was never overrated.
St.Anger can make me angry..It's bad

8 Hardwired... to Self-Destruct
9 Kill 'em All
10 Load

Worst metallica album, after lulu - Disturbedpotato

The Contenders

11 S&M
12 Metallica: Through the Never
13 Quebec Magnetic
14 Death Magnetic

Funny, #3 on most overrated Metallica albums, #1 on most underrated Metallica albums.

Edit: My dishonorable mention successfully moved it on the last place. - Alkadikce

Too loud
