Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich, recently did an interview with Vulture. During the interview he said which Metallica song he would never like to hear again and the answer may surprise you.
The song he picked is “Eye Of The Beholder” off of their 1988 album “…And Justice For All”. Lars went on to say, “There’s a song called ‘Eye Of The Beholder’ on the ‘…[And] Justice [For All]’ album. Wherever I hear that song, it sounds kind of like — I guess we don’t want to be super-disrespectful to it — but it sounds really forced,” stated Ulrich.
“It sounds like you put a square peg in a round hole,” he continued, “It sounds like it’s got two different tempos. There’s kind of a 4/4 feel in the intro and on the verses, and then I think the choruses are more like in a waltz tempo. It literally sounds like two different worlds rubbing up against each other. It sounds very awkward to me. I’m not a huge fan of that song.”
“I guess the asterisk is that, to me, we did the best we could each moment. So of course, sometimes you sit down and go ‘Huh?’ or ‘That could have been better’ or ‘That was a little awkward’ or ‘That feels a little silly or easy’ or ‘That feels over-thought-out’ or whatever,” Ulrich explained.
“It goes back to that whole thing about the past is the past, and I don’t spend a long time back there,” Ulrich said, “and there’s not really much I can do about it [laughs] and honestly, I don’t listen to them. I don’t listen to a lot of Metallica music.”
