I know this isn't exactly a prog poll, and sorry if I've put this poll in the wrong place!
 
Anyway I'll kick this off for voting for my fave, Ride The Lightning.
 
Pogo.

AJFA is one of my favorite metal albums ever, despite horrible recording conditions, and plastic drums

Nice poll sis Clap.
 
I'm a bit stuck between the first 3, it could have been any of those.  I'll go for Master Of Puppets, by a whisker.

Back in the day, it used to be Ride the Lighning, but now it's Master of Puppets. "Disposable Heroes", "The Thing That Should Not Be", and the title track are all stellar.

As far as my favorite, either Master of Puppets or ...And Justice for All.

I'll just go with AJFA because it's losing, and I know damn well it doesn't stand a chance against Puppets. Roj M30 said just the first three are the best. Most people think like that. No chance for AJFA.

So it gets my vote!!

Interesting.  Ride The Lightning, Master of Puppets, and And Justice for All are definitely the top 3 for me too.  I'm not sure if I can break it down any further than that though.

Ride the Lightning.

Followed by Master of Puppets in 2nd, ...And Justice for All in 3rd and Kill 'Em All in 4th.
The rest of their albums I don't even bother with.

Thanks for all the responses to my poll Smile.
 
Gotta say I'm amazed to see that St. Anger has a vote (it could be a joke as Progrocker2244 points out!!), but the Black Album hasn't got any which I think's a great album (especially the track Sad But True).

You are quite a fine person, and I am very fond of you. But you are only quite a little fellow, in a wide world, after all.

Well, there's only two of those, according to your list (St Anger and ReLoad)...
 
But I agree on the descrption you use for those two albums... very accurate and evocative of the quality of the music...Tongue

I'm also talking about _Garage, Inc._ which I actually have which contains some of the forementioned great stuff and some truly atrocious material.
 
And then there were the stupid singles we bought to have the covers on the b-sides that later were on that album. (The backside of "One" was a cover called the "The Prince" which is actually pretty cool)
And the videos, and the therapy session......just give me "Battery" !!!!!

I decided to omit Garage Inc., as it's not really a proper album - it's not bad though.

I don't listen past Ride The Lightning. It just gets sh*tter as time goes on. Kill 'Em All got my vote.

I'm sorry if I offend Metallica purists by saying that I think I like Reload a good bit.  I'll vote for that today.
