Pitchfork on Metallica

Quote sans comment, from Pitchfork’s review of the Apocalyptica album Plays Metallica by Four Cellos:

Something else about this release is that it also displays Metallica’s talent for writing incredible, theatrical pieces of music. While the classic metal band may be unstylish and… well… kind of bad, in general, they’ve produced some of the best heavy metal in existence by writing what is essentially classical music played loudly. Of course, that was before the Load hit. Now they’re just five years late for a money train headed for Seattle.
