It's been exactly 20 years since Metallica released their highly acclaimed fourth album, ...And Justice for All, which could have been an absolute killer. Not only was it the followup to their 1986 classic, Master of Puppets, but it was also the first album recorded with new bassist Jason Newsted, replacing the late Cliff Burton. I remember waiting very patiently for this record to come out, and saving the last of the money I had on me so I could buy it. I finally bought it sometime back in the fall of 1988 along with the Suicidal Tendencies record, How Will I Laugh Tomorrow, and I was hooked when I listened to it for the first time.
When a man lies"One" may actually be the most overrated song here, with the highlights including "Blackened," "...And Justice for All," "Harvester of Sorrow," "Frayed Ends of Sanity" and "Dyer's Eve" -- all very good thrash-metal songs.
Bottom line: I recommend you buy your own copy of ...And Justice for All, if you don't own it. Check it out. Buy it. Listen to it. Whatever.
