If there was a definitive discography of classic albums, what should be in it? Host Mark Fraser from The Curator Podcast, and titans of Glasgow music/co-hosts David Weaver from Detour and Chris Cusack from Bloc, discuss and dissect perceived classic albums to decide which albums would make this list. Then, after we've talked it to death, we turn it over to you to decide once and for all via a handy poll. Cast your vote on our Facebook page and let's celebrate unsung classics.

It seems our argument that Metallica are the “acceptable” version of thrash has gained a little agreement on all of the internets on which we are present, which is nice. Of course, after the abomination (?) of St. Anger, Metallica returned to their “roots” with Death Magnetic and Hardwired… to Self Destruct. Which as Dave points out on this episode, is now a bunch of (mostly) old dudes trying to be young again. As if they ever really grew up anyway…

To wit, this is part two of our Metallica exodus, wherein we talk about the band’s career from Damage. Inc up until the present, including a very brief sojourn into the weirdness of Lulu, which is an album that does not get better with age, despite Lars confidently proclaiming that it would. Man, that was a long sentence…

Nevertheless, we do give St. Anger a chance, and Dave does genuinely like this album, faults and all. In the end though, it all comes down to what you think. It’s worth saying at this point that we will never ever revisit this band ever again. So, if you do think Metallica deserve a place in our discography this is the only chance you’ll get to vote them in.
