Ya know, all day yesterday I was listening to the first 8 Sabbath albums from Black Sabbath to Never Say Die and I honestly gotta say, I don't understand why Technical Ecstasy and Never Say Die get so much crap. Seriously Technical Ecstasy has some pretty good songs on it. Rock N Roll Doctor, You Wont Change Me, Dirty Women.... And Never Say Die has the title track, A Hard Road, Shock Wave, Air Dance, Swinging The Chain, and Junior's Eyes. And for the Ozzy Sabbath albums I think like half of Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is good and the other stuff could have been a lot better and that I felt they were "missing" something there and it just came back on Sabotage, partly went away again on Technical Ecstasy, stayed that way on Never Say Die, and then Ozzy was out and we got Dio. The Dio Sabbath stuff is good. But it's a different beast than what Ozzy Sabbath was. Same with Tony Martin. And Tony Martin Sabbath is really good too but I almost never see anyone talking about anything other than Dio and Ozzy when it comes to Sabbath. Which is a shame since Dio was only with em for 3 albums (really only like Heaven And Hell and kinda like Mob Rules) and Tony Martin was with them for 5.
Just my 2 cents.

I'd say the only Metallica you should listen to is their first 4 albums.The self titled was decent.
So - Kill Em' All, Ride The Lightning, Master Of Puppets, and ...And Justice For All.
It is. I wont deny that. But I honestly think it's overplayed and too many people only tend to know Metallica for JUST that or JUST Enter Sandman when they have 9 albums and are constantly bouncing back around saying they are and then saying they're not recording a 10th album and then saying they're writing songs and then going to say they have like 724723545245 riffs but only one song that may or may not be on their upcoming album that'll come out before the end of the century in it's current form.
Personally I think Lords Of Summer is a decent song and kinda hope the new album has more songs like that and try going for a thrashier Death Magnetic but...yeah. Kinda went off on my own thing but whatever.
