Look at the good albums, the great albums and the shitty albums. They're pretty much a mirror image of each other.
That's actually not off.
Metallica's and Megadeth's first four albums were pure thrash.
Album #5 was more traditional heavy metal than thrash metal and would go on to be both band's best selling albums.
Albums 6 and 7 continued the commercial trend.
Then came their eighth album, which was universally despised and generally regarded to be their worst.
And finally, their ninth albums were a return to their thrash sound.
So hopefully, Metallica's 10th, 11th, and 12th albums will also be thrashier, just like Megadeth's respective albums.
