Does anyone else think that Lars Ulrich's drumming is getting worse and worse?

I am an avid Metallica fan, I buy everything they release (imports, rare shi!t, ultra obscure stuff) and to me if you compare him in the mid 80s then the mid 90s and now he has ben been progressively getting worse and worse...shouldn't it be the other way round??

Thanks.
