I can tell you this, I did not like Metallica's first album and since I discovered Focus (among others) I have a problem with Dream Theater.
Regarding Metallica, a bit unfair since I have to give at least the second and third album a good listen. Dream Theater, well I do not like the vocalist and the - in my opinion - pretentious sound from Dream Theater. Thing is, fragments of "Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulance" sounded very exciting. I prefer Dream Theater's instrumentals anyway...
Right now Kingston Wall is playing. I like Metal every now and then for I prefer the more jazzy and progressive/experimental approach to music. I do have a weak spot for the merciless style of 'Trash' Metal à la Slayer(: violence in stereo ).
Just finished listening to Iron Maiden's "Piece Of Mind"(, set up: CD690 + AKG K240 DF). The musical variation is very pleasing. On its own I find this album quite strong and it deserves a second listen. By the way Bruce Dickinson, I think Axl Rose tried to emulate him. That written the vocals and instrumentals sound good. The bassist and drummer still impress me...
Is it me or could "Die With Your Boots On" and "The Trooper" connected to each other work as one track? Also "Flight Of Icarus" is so likeable but even if it serves as an excellent high light I find none of the tracks to sound even remotely uninspired or weak sounding.
