That's ok, you don't have to like it! Do what is the best metallica ballad for u?


I would like say Bob Seagar orginal vesrion when he sings, Turn The Page, but Metallica make it faster,
from metallica slower songs well its har name, I would say Nothing Alse Metters for me lyrics perfectly fit into muisc and its important, and Uforgiven is good to, deep meaning song, but Welcome Home (Sanitarium) soryy I cn not choose song from thet album I love all album,

Welcome Home, because well... it's a ballad about insanity. That was pretty weird back in teh day.

I put The Unforgiven but honestly, for me it's a tie b/t that and Fade to Black. I love them both!

oh, and I don't really consider One to be a ballad. I think it's wayy to heavy. Out of all these that's my favorite song listed but I definitely don't think it's ballad material.

Welcome Home (Sanitarium) for me. Musically better than Fade to Black, IMO.

Welcome Home, no doubt!
If "One" is considered a ballad it's also a nice one.

I personally think Nothing Else Matters is an overrated song. I voted for Fade to Black because it's simply amazing musically and lyrically.

I love all of these songs, but at the moment, I'm really digging Nothing Else Matters. I haven't really heard it in a while and I almost forgot how beautiful it sounded.

No doubt Fade To Black. Easily the most well written of all of these, and in that regard One is in 2nd place, Welcome Home in 3rd and the boring ones can tie for the 4th place participation ribbon.

Although, I do believe One tells a very interesting story. The concept of it is so wicked and it is executed well, maybe it would be the best if it wasn't based on a movie. By which I mean, if it was an original idea I would give Metallica more credit.
