This double-disc, all-covers release could come to represent a vital turning point for Metallica. While disc 2 is a straightforward collection of every cover the group have recorded in its 16-year history, disc 1 comprises 11 new selections drawn from the oeuvres of such exciting and diverse artists as U.K. punks Discharge and nefarious Australian Nick Cave. The heavier songs, such as the Mercyful Fate medley, Black Sabbath's "Sabbra Cadabra," and the Misfits' "Die Die My Darling," prove that nobody delivers a crunching riff better than these metal veterans. But it is vocalist-guitarist James Hetfields's confident approach toward the likes of Cave's "Loverman" and Bob Seger's "Turn the Page" that delivers the most electricity; here his raw, heartfelt vocals are largely untouched. Given that the recharged group spent only three weeks in the studio recording these tracks, it appears that these guys have remembered the value of studio spontaneity over laborious pontificating. Hopefully, that mindset will resurface in future projects. --Steffan Chirazi --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars On the covers Dec 22 2003
Format:Audio CD
The cover albums are many times simply the fillers in band's discography between their regular albums."Garage inc" is definitly not a filler.new versions of old (or not so old) songs that somehow inspired Metallica during their career are very good and interesting.from the blowing "Free speach for the dumb" up to few motorhead covers on second disc Metallica gives us whole bunch of styles.Misfit's punk,rock ballads,heavy metal roar and melodic hard rock.this variety is nothing else that they have did before or later.
i love these new varsions of songs like "Last carees/green hell","Sabra caddabra","Whisky in the jar" (Thin Lizzy's classic) or "loverman" (Originaly performed by Nick Cave who has nothing to do wiht metal music...).album not deserves more that 4 stars because all in all it is not their brand new music anyway but these 4 stars are for amazing performances that are all here.hard rhythm section,heftield's deep vocals and hammet's fast solos are simply irresistible.of course this is not the classic Metallica from early years or Black album era but what the hell...i like it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Both Metallica new and old Dec 2 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Garage Inc." should be looked at in terms of each disc seperately. Disc 2 is everything that Metallica fans could want, since every song is fast and heavy, reminiscent of their 80's glory. The covers on Disc 2 have been heard before, because many of them are concert staples ("So What", "Last Caress", "Stone Cold Crazy", "Am I Evil?"), but it is nice to have them all together on one disc, so it is no longer neccessary to dust off that old "Garage Days" tape. All the songs on this disc are solid, there is no doubt about that. Even fans who do nothing but complain about the direction the band has taken will like this.
Disc 1 is where the originality kicks in. Seems strange to call a disc of covers original, but Metallica manages to take each song and transform it enough from the original, that it could easily be considered a reinvention as opposed to a cover. The best track here is "Astronomy", the original Blue Oyster Cult song. Beautiful melodies give way to the Metallica crunch that we all adore, and the song has the feel of an epic. Plus, the song ends with an amazing solo by Hammett. The courage of Metallica comes through in their decision to cover "Loverman", a dark song from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Hetfield sings this one amazingly, capturing enough of Cave and injecting some of his own style into the ominous lyrics. Songs like "Die, die my Darling" and "It's Electric" show that there still is no band that can touch these guys when it comes to energy, and anyone that has heard the original "Die..." by the Misfits will know exactly how much energy Metallica has pumped into this song. Another interesting one is "Tuesday's Gone", the sad Lynyrd Skynyrd tune.

Released just 5 years ago, 1998's "Garage Inc.", was a return-to-roots album for the boys of Metallica. James, Lars, Kirk, & Jason, decided to re-visit their roots, by covering classic tracks by some of their favorite bands. Disc 1, which was recorded entirely in 1998, features the singles "Turn the Page (Bob Seger)", "Whiskey in the Jar (Thin Lizzy)", & "Die, Die My Darling (The Misfits/Danzig)." These new remakes are very entertaining, and sound better and more heavier than the originals. You also get a cover of, "Sabbra Cadabra", from Black Sabbath's 1973 LP "Sabbath, Bloody Sabbath" on disc 1.
Disc 2, is shock full of old, vintage Metallica, from 1984, 1987, 1988, and the early 1990's. This disc completely blows the first disc away, and is of much interest to dedicated fans. The first 5 tracks are the remastered "Garage Days Re-Revisited" tracks from 1987, which are Jason Newsted's first ever studio recordings with Metallica. "Helpless (Diamond Head)"
"Last Caress (The Misfits)", & "The Wait (Holocaust)" are among the highlights of that EP. Following this 1987 EP, are some tracks recorded in 1984 (with Cliff Burton on bass), b-sides to singles from "...And Justice for All (1988)", and a cover of Queen's "Stone Cold Crazy (1990)." The last few tracks on this disc, are covers of Motorhead classics, that were recorded in 1995, prior to the release of the controversial "Load (1996)" album. I suggest you get this double CD set used, and avoid the
"WAL-MART version", which I accidentally bought back in 1998. This version beeps out all swears, which can get really annoying at times. Luckily, I re-bought this album in 1999, when it was on sale.

4.0 out of 5 stars Whiskey in the Jar-Oh? July 27 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album isn't the best but it is a good one to buy. There are some great songs on Disc 1 such as It's Electric. Whiskey in the Jar-O is well played and Astronomy is awesome. Disc 2 is even better (Although I still don't get what's up with Track 13 through 16). Small Hours is a slow melody that gets kind of annoying because of how slow the song is. So What is a hilarious song by Metallica (Whoever thought of those lyrics had too much to drink while writing it). Stone Dead Forever's guitar solo is just fantastic. Damage Case is also a great song also. Blitzgrieg makes it sound just like their in World War 2 with their melody and rhythem whatever you wanna call it. Overall Disc 2 is better than Disc 1 but who cares! There put together to make a great album and were successful especially the little book thingy inside. They show most of their storys through the garage days from where the performed in San Fransisco when McGovney and Mustaine were in the band. The photos are cool especially when one of the photos are from where it looks like the view Lars Ulrich is in. They tell everything up to '98 about Garage Days in the little book. I only give it four stars though because Disc 1 doesn't have as great songs as I thought there would be but it's all good!
