                        I'm not surprised to see St Anger at the bottom of those lists. Didn't like the album very much. I did see them play their 'not so secret' show at Download a few years ago when they just released it. It was great to see them but was very disappointed with their set tho.

Metallica have had a much, much more commercial approach to music than Maiden. They made the piece of shit album Load which was not even metal while St.Anger was a nu-metal band. They always jump onto the latest trends and for that, they are sell-outs. No excuses. Anyone who can't see that is in denial.

                              Maiden, on the other hand, have stayed true to their music over the years. Ever hear a Maiden album without guitar solos? Nope. Ever seen Maiden sue their fans for downloading their music? Nope. Have Maiden ever tried to sound current? Nope.

                              End of discussion.
                              Well said, Priestfan, well said!

                                        Yes, it seems these four albums keep selling very well.
                                        For reference here are their numbers from feb 2003 and sales in that 4 year period.

                                        24 METALLICA|METALLICA 6174 5479 13,376,889 1487K

                                        Obviously The Black Album is still selling the most, but interestingly "Master Of Puppets" comes 2nd in these four years. It's SS total has now overtaken "Ride The Lightning" and is gaining on "...And Justice For All". It's unlikely to ever catch that one though.

                                        All 4 titles were certified in June 2003 - 4 years ago. "Metallica" was also certified dec 2003 and has scanned over 1M since then, so that one's due for an update. The other three aren't (unless their latest certification was overdue)

                                          While on the subject I've also digged out this list from the Metal Sludge site with Metallica sales from May 2000.

                                          Let's see what their titles sold in that 5 year period:

                                          "Kill 'Em All" 1,785,507 559K
                                          "Ride The Lightning" 3,014,900 946K
                                          "Master Of Puppets" 2,961,729 1120K
                                          "Garage Days Revisited" 2,613 ?
                                          "And Justice..." 3,688,941 1121K
                                          "Metallica" 11,949,243 2565K
                                          "Live Shit: Binge & Purge" 457,436 ?
                                          "Load" 4,429,208 480K
                                          "Re-load" 3,276,890 605K
                                          "Garage Inc." 2,393,827 539K
                                          "S&M" 1,943,811 ?

                                          Of course their top 4 catalog sellers of this period is the usual suspects, but surprisingly (to me anyway) "Re-Load" is their 5th bestseller of this period. I would have thought both "Load" and "Kill 'Em All" were better catalog sellers.

                                          Btw, I'd say Re-Load should be ready for 4 x platinum by now and "Garage Inc" should be ready for 6 x Platinum. "Metallica" is ready for 15 x Platinum.

                                            Some chart positions for Norway: Album Top 40: actual sales are never available in Norway but perhaps this is interesting to some of you anyway: as you see Metallica were discoverd with Justice and became a household name with the black album. The early albums charted first in 2003 (I assume in conjunction with the St Anger-tour that included Norway)

                                                  Metallica's Soundscan total Sep 2005 was 47,600,000.

                                                  I don't know if any of their albums were sold through Record Clubs in the US.
                                                  I dont know either, but I dont think so. Comparing SS with RIAA makes sence for their albums. The totals too. By March 1991 (just before SS began) they already had 7 platinum discs. 2 for AJFA, 2 for MOP, 1 for RTL, 1 for KTA and 1 for Garage Days Revisited.

                                                  That means their SS era RIAA certifications (45M) are lower than their SS figure (47.6M). Therefore it seems unlikely that any albums were sold through Record Clubs.
