 There's more to life than thrash Metal

| | See all Trotzki's reviews (1)

What do you do when the world's biggest thrash metal band stops recording thrash metal? Move on? Cry? Or sit back and enjoy?! In 1988 Metallica fans did all three. Many turned their attentions to the unmolested, brutal sounds of Slayer, Anthrax or Testament. Many would have continued to mourne the death of Metallica's deceased Bass Player, Cliff Burton. The rest accepted Metallica Mk II with open arms and some even dared to hail '...and Justice for All' the band's greatest album to date.
The superfast thrash of the previous three albums was replaced by very precise and intricate guitar riffs. While James Hetfield's angry lyrics about abuses of power and control remained, the songs became tighter, longer and more mature. Speed and power gave way to complex structures and progressive rhythms. Hetfield's vocals became deeper and scarier and Hammett's solos, while losing some of their fire and fury, became crisper and more clinical. Truly this was an ex-thrash band looking to widen its horizons and audience.
Although the album is often criticized for its production (the drums sound hollow at times and new-boy Jason Newstead's bass is barely audable) the band make up for it with brilliant song writing and unmistakable gusto. Even the radio-friendly 'One', which earnt the band their first hit-single, ends with a speedy break-down that even the most judgemental Demin-jacket wearing headbanger would struggle to dismiss.
It has something for everyone. Heavy as hell (Harevester of Sorrow), pace (Dyers Eve), prog-metal (...and justice for all), a trail-blazing opener (Blackened) and an instrumental that pays homage to the late Cliff Burton (To Live is to Die) where the former bassist's lyrics are read out underneath the music. If the band were attempting to reach the mainstream then they were doing it by bringing the mainstream to them first. Universal audiences would have to wait till 1991's self titled "Black Album". However, if you only listen to one track on 'Justice', then put on track seven, "Frayed ends of Sanity." It's masterpeice by two great guitarists and is absolutely perfect. A lot goes on on those fret-boards but every note is welded with precision and unweilding confidence.
Often over-shadowed by "Master of Puppets" as Metallica's greatest album, I believe "...Justice" is even better than that. It's the greatest metal album ever!

 Fantastic metal album!!

I recommend this album to anybody who is passionate about metal music. Opening with fantastic 'Blackened' some of the highlights of this album include the mind blowing 'One', the hard hitting title track and a personal favourite 'Frayed Ends of Sanity'. The Riffs are awesome, the solos are mezmerizing, this is just one of the best metal albums I have ever listened to.

 Can't get much tighter than this!

Some say over produced, some say over complex, others even say too long. Personally I think this album is a classic. Granted the guitar sound was not as clean and crisp as it was for master of puppets but the anger coming from this album is great. If you are in a bad mood this is a great album to chuck on and play really loud.

Starting with Blackened (which has nicely made its way back into the live Metallica list) this album opens as it means to go on. Fast yet groovy tunes. The solos are fast but melodic and the vocals are humable. Nowhere more evident on this album than on the single "One". A classic track that just goes from good to great to amazing! Finishing with a flurry of harmonised guitars it leaves you breathless.

The only downside that I'd say about this album is the bass. Because Lars and James mixed the album they pretty much shut Jason out. Gives the album a different sound but could have made it perfect!

 Best album ever?

This is one of the best albums I've ever had the pleasure of listening to! Every song, and I mean EVERY song on here is simply amazing. From Blackened to Dyer's Eve, Eye of the Beholder to The Shortest Straw. Every song is a pleasure to listen to. Seriously, this is one of the best albums ever by THE best band ever!

Top 100 Books Reviewer

For me this album marked the end of Metallica's golden era. Their first album since the death of original bass player Cliff Burton, And Justice for All showcased an ultra progressive sound and some intelligent song writing. Hetfield's vocal is also vastly improved when compared to their previous albums. My only complaint is that the production quality seems fairly flat, and you can barely make out the bass on any of the tracks. The stand out track is clearly One, where you will here some awesome guitarwork from Hetfield and Hammett (the guitar solo is to be revered). After this album Metallica went all commercial and these days are a somewhat jaded rock band. Buy this album and listen to a band at the pinnacle of their career.
