5.0 out of 5 stars Cool, 2 Jan. 2002
This review is from: Reload (Audio CD)
When Metallica sat down to write Load, so much material came up that they had to produce a second album. ReLoad. Very much along the same lines as Load, less thrash more rock. Some people really dislike this album, I don't see why, some of the tracks on it are just pure genius, my personal favourites are The Unforgiven 2, Carpe Diem Baby, Prince Charming and Fixxxer.

4.0 out of 5 stars You Can Tell Cliff is Gone, 2 Jan. 2002
This review is from: ... And Justice For All (Audio CD)
There must have been a lot of pressure put on Jason Newstead when he came along to take the place of legendary Cliff Burton, there was no way that he'd be as good and this, I think is reflected in the tracks. Little to no bass can be heard throughout the whole album with the exception of the instrumental To Live is To Die (which had been written by Cliff prior to his death). Nonetheless, bass or no bass there are still some outstanding songs on 'tallica's fourth album the crowd favourite One is still remembered today as a classic, The Harvester of Sorrow and To Live is to Die are all top notch Metallica songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Metal at its very finest, 2 Jan. 2002
This review is from: Master Of Puppets (Audio CD)
What a way for bass God Cliff Burton to go, jus after releasing the best album of his career, he tragically dies in a bus crash. He should have been proud of what he accomplished with this album though. Master of Puppets shows a great improvement in the bands playing and song writing, Cliff's bass playing is especially good on the tracks Orion, Master of Puppets and Welcome Home (Sanitarium). The tracks are a lot more powerful then on the previous two and the group all come together as one to create a blindingly brilliant album that has not yet been surpassed by any metal band too date. My favourite songs (although not one on the album is bad) are the title track Master of Puppets, the awesome instrumental Orion, Welcome Home (Sanitarium) and The Thing That Should Not Be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even Better Follow-Up, 2 Jan. 2002
This review is from: Ride The Lightning (Audio CD)
Ride The Lightning is one hell of an album. Not as 'thrashy' sounding as their debut Kill 'Em All, but the writing (lyrics and music) is better than before, showing 'tallica were improving as musicians. This album was also themed in a way - all the songs are about ways of dying.
Fight Fire With Fire - Nuclear War
Ride The Lightning - Electrocution
For Whom The Bell Tolls - On the battlefield
Fade To Black - Suicide
Trapped Under Ice - Drowning
Escape - Difficult to explain, listen and make your mind up about it
Creeping Death - Murder
All these songs are classics with great big crunchy guitar riffs, thick, heavy drumming, powerful bass, and to top it off great lyrics. My favourite songs are the very cool title track Ride The Lightning, the epic (and best on the album) Fade To Black, the thrashy Creeping Death and the beautifully pieced Call of Ktulu.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad, But Not Their Best, 19 July 2001
This review is from: Die, Die My Darling (Audio CD)
It will be very hard for metallica to match the wonderful heaviness, and speed from their earlier single releases (from Ride The Lightning, Master of Puppets and Kill 'Em All), but this isn't exactly a failed attempt at it. Die, Die My Darling might not be what you would call heavy metal, it is slightly too catchy (which isn't always a bad thing though), has more of a rock aurora around it and is far too short (possibly the shortest song they've done). Saying that, I do really enjoy listening to it and although it isn't their best work it is still worth getting.
