4.0 out of 5 stars not perfect, 24 Mar. 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Metallica (Audio CD)
'...and justice for all' and 'master of puppets' are my favourite metallica albums because of how fast and heavy they were - they were so amazingly thrashy! this album is not thrash. but that really doesn't make it bad. neither is being a step into the 'mainstream' the making of a bad album. if you think this is a bad album you clearly don't like metal.
what this album has that nothing tallica had done before had was easily listenable songs that were still definably metal to the core. songs like 'enter sandman', 'sad but true' and 'through the never' are strong and heavy but not huge epics. also the vocals of Hetfield on this album are much improved. i would say that this is the album where he really got it right with his singing. he 'sings' more on this album than previously, but it's still brutal enough to sound in place with the music, unlike in future releases where he goes too far and sounds a bit moany.
what this album doesn't have is speed. that's what got metallica where they are and they scrapped it with this. gone is the complicated structures too that never made any of the longer songs boring. this album's songs are much shorter and simpler.
so there are pro's and con's to this album but it is METAL and all the songs are good - they all have good riffs and solos. i promise anybody who likes real metal will like this, but it's not exclusive - alot of rockers will be converted not only to metallica but to metal in general after hearing this. that's why it's a good introduction to the band and the genre as a whole.
it isn't perfect but it's a classic metal album for a reason
