* Since ''Load'' was such a stylistic change for Metallica, it contains several excellent songs that frequently get overlooked - but the most awesome track off that album would have to be "Hero of the Day". (With an honorable mention to "Bleeding Me", "King Nothing", and [[EpicRocking "The Outlaw Torn"]].)
** With that in mind, take a listen to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRV9uPr4Dz4 Until it Sleeps]] and [[TearJerker keep your composure if you can.]]

* ''St. Anger'' is a polarizing album, but those who are on the [[LoveItOrHateIt "Love It"]] side ''really'' tend to love it. Some songs are admittedly overlong, but highlights from this album include "Frantic", "Sweet Amber" and "The Unnamed Feeling".
** The title track, as well. A little bit long-ish? Mayhap. Still awesome? You bet your ass. Seven minutes plus of pure, distilled aggression as only Metallica could have done at that time. It also doesn't hurt that it features some of Lars' fastest double-bass footwork since Battery.

* Their debut album, 1983's ''Kill 'Em All'', which may just blow ''Master of Puppets'' clear out of the water. "Hit the Lights" is just fucking awesome: not even rabid metal fans had heard a song that fast before! "Motorbreath" is similarly insane, and "The Four Horsemen" is just plain spooky.

[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KlxEejhHfr8 Metal Militia]], too, is a blisteringly fast closing song with a bassline that is almost superhuman.

* [[TearJerker Lay beside me,tell me what they've done, and speaks the words, that I wanna hear, to make my demons run.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VmqDtriTUEI "The Unforgiven 2"]] is just beautiful and epic. It also has one of the greatest simple guitar riffs of all time. Also, on the ''[=ReLoad=]'' front, we have "Fuel", the Grammy winning "Better Than You" (AWESOME guitar solo in the middle!), the hard-rocking "The Memory Remains" and the epic-length "Fixxxer" (get a load of that intro). And, in the "SomethingCompletelyDifferent" category, "Low Man's Lyric", which sounds like it could have been on ''Music/TheWall''. With bonus hurdy-gurdy.

* ''Ride the Lightning'' deserves a mention, if only for the title track and "For Whom The Bell Tolls".

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhBHL3v4d3I "Hardwired"]], their first 2016 single, is a great representation of what makes Metallica great. The beautiful and dynamic [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4tdKl-gTpZg "Moth Into Flame"]], another single from ''Hardwired'', is similarly an excellent example of how well the band has matured.

"[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m46Z0-HXySo Spit Out the Bone]]", meanwhile, is being praised as one of the band's best songs since 1988. Many people have commented that they didn't think the band had a song this intense in them this late in their career.
* ''Lulu'' has been widely criticised, but, as with ''St. Anger'', it has its defenders, and the people who like it tend to really love it. The closing song, the nearly-twenty-minute epic "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJ_VBkdsS0U Junior Dad]]", is absolutely gorgeous, with a closing section that could have come straight out of Music/SigurRos. An arguable career highlight for both Metallica and Music/LouReed. Other highlights include "Pumping Blood" (featuring some of Lars Ulrich's best drumming since the '80s) and the devastating "Little Dog" and "Dragon".
