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.

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!
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.Read more ›
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.
