Now what about the most overrated metal album?

Dré Karst: In my opinion, Metallica's [self-titled] "Black Album" is the most overrated metal album. It was praised and embraced by the mainstream, but they had completely betrayed their true core fan base. They wanted to expand their audience, but the album was lackluster and a major disappointment. Songs like "Enter Sandman," "Everywhere I Roam" and "The Unforgiven" were very commercial, weak and turned them into a completely different band. No longer were the songs riff-driven, powerful or full of energy. The band did not progress their sound, but became a cash cow project engineered by Bob Rock. Metallica had completely sold out writing ballads and catchy vocal melodies instead of doing what they did best: thrash metal. All I can say to summarize this is, "SLAYER! SLAYER! SLAYER!"
