Having already established themselves as the streetwise saviors of heavy metal's oft-tainted legacy in the '80s, Metallica rebounded from the accidental death of original bassist Cliff Burton to produce their most thematically challenging, musically accomplished album to date. Despite James Hetfield's dank, extended portraits of a world collapsing from corruption and decadence--themes that virtually guaranteed it little radio or television exposure--the album was nonetheless a muscular commercial success. Even "One," its complex, seven-and-a-half-minute adaptation of Dalton Trumbo's "Johnny Got His Gun," managed to scale the singles charts. Other highlights include "Blackened," "Eye of the Beholder," and the sweeping "To Live Is to Die," tracks that underscore a sense of musical ambition that's often downright prog-centric, yet never merely self-indulgent. --Jerry McCulley

"...And Justic For All" is a masterpiece from beggening to finnish,filled with long Epics and you can that each musician here except newbie Jason Newsted play to their full potential.If you didn't think Lars Ulrich was a great drummer before this album,you will as Lars is really focused here its probabaly the album he plays best on.Kirk Hammet probably never played better and Jame Hetfield's vocals are unleashed!They all play great here but Jason Newsted is notably absent from the album as you don't hear much if any bass at all it seems as it was erased or just never done,so the album is just guitars.Read more ›
'Blackened' opens the proceedings in style - excellent guitar harmonics in the introduction lead to strong, fast riffing. I really feel that the sound of the drums degrades the quality of this song significantly, and it could have been a hell of a lot better with drums more like Master, or Ride. A pretty good solo with a great mid section speed up.
'...And Justice for all'- I loved this very long track the first few times I listened... unfortunately it got old pretty fast. Its a personal thing, because I just dont find the subject matter (lawyers/judges/justice in the courts etc) that interesting. A great solo is in there but the whole track is a little repetitive and the trademark Metallica tempo change only seems to deflate the track's momentum. Overall I found the title track disappointing.
'Eye of the beholder' - A tight metal track, the meaning of which I am yet to ascertain. Good, but nothing special.
'One' - A famous song, and the first of its type to really do well in the charts, and come attached with an MTV music video. To many true hard core metal heads this was the beginning of the end in terms of Metallica's heavy realeases. A good ballad, with an effective change in tone near the end leading to a blistering guitar solo.Read more ›
After the death of long-time bassist Cliff Burton, Metallica was considering calling it a day and going their seperate ways, but luckily they stayed together, and recorded what today would be known as ...And Justice For All. It was Metallica's most complex, exploring the apocalyptic lyrical portrait of a society in decay, and it further deepened Metallica's skill for progressive compositions, with dense webs of guitar showmanship and harmonized leads. In turn, ...And Justice For All is Metallica's most realized album, where their technical mastery was pushed to the brink, with Lar's strongest drumming this side of Master Of Puppets, Hetfield's most inspired vocals and lyrics of his career, and Hammett's guitar mastery, which he never equalled from this album. Upon its release in 1988, ...And Justice For All, backed up by Metallica's ever-growing fanbase(Which would explode upon the release of The Black Album), pushed ...And Justice For All to #6 on the Billboard Charts, unthinkable for Metallica at the time. By 1989, the single "One" and the resulting video were in heavy rotation on MTV, and that thrusted "One", one of the most unlikely singles ever, to #35 on Billboard Charts, and Metallica's fans grew by the truckloads. Their last true Thrash album, ...And Justice For All stands as a masterpiece, unparalleled today as Metal's Greatest Album(To Me), and second only to Rush's Moving Pictures as the Best Album Ever. Read on to find out why this is a masterpiece.
Blackened- "Blackened" tells the story of the destruction of nature, and it's pure Thrash Metal at its best.Read more ›
