Hmmm, so this is the last "true" Metallica classic? Let me start off by saying a lot of fans consider this to be their "progressive" album, while after hearing it through, the only thing I can point out that has "progressed" is the band's ability to bore the listener into a deep coma after a couple tracks.

When I came across Aguirre's review of Metallica's '...And Justice For All', I immediately spewed Coca-Cola everywhere and threatened the non-stickiness of my keyboard. I didn't see it coming, I guess. Aguirre is entitled to his opinion, but what follows is my review of Metallica's 'last great' and 'progressive' album.

It can easily be said that music is a photo in time. A fragment in where society is once shot, forever leaving the remembrance of where and who we were. This translates directly and more so intently to an artist or band, and where they were in their lives and careers when a piece of work was released. For Metallica in 1988, two-years removed from a loss of a brother, a friend and a band mate, bassist Cliff Burton, they showed their scars in an album that I can only help but adore. "…And Justice For All" is a long, (65-minutes long, 10 less than the maximum) drawn out, epic, loud, angry, and emotionally charged record that sweeps its listeners up into its messages and endless musicianship.

Metallica! Need we say anything more about this band? They are the biggest Heavy Metal band ever to have existed, sold more records than any other Metal band and have performed in almost all the countries on the planet. They are the fathers of Thrash Metal and are one of the most influential bands of all time. Most of you know a great deal about them so I won't be elaborating anymore.

Man, hard to please. That's a hell of a low rating for a pretty good album.

I just read Joey Jo Jo's review. Fully agreed !
They're trying hard to be "progressive", unfortunately the skills of the guitarist and drummer are not good enough.

At least you increased your rating from 1 to 3. This album probably has some of Lars best drumming.

He still had time to write the comment before passing away. Cause of death was officially given as "...And Justice for All".

Must admit I sort of agree. The album is a bit flat. Terrible production, no bass (its been said before I know). Some good tracks ruined by no highs or lows in the sound. An album crying out to be re-recorded (blasphemy to some, but necessary). James' vocals are also without any feeling.

I know that everything that came after is not deemed, elitist enough, but that sort of production would have made this a much better album.
deadone - 04.05.2015 at 16:06  
  It's also mindlessly repetitive. E.g. The title track should've been 4-5 minutes long, not 9.

Great album, but the production and length drag it down a bit.

As does the songwriting

This album was an immense letdown when I got hold of it in 1988. Damn, were me and my friends disappointed by it.

No doubt, I believe that. Everything on there is a letdown compared to the previous three albums.

Not everything. Blackened, One, and Dyer's Eve were great. But the rest of the songs... oh my fucking God. Where was the producer to tell the guys to cut down on the length of their songs?

To be honest I never was a fan of One... but I don't know 'bout the producer lol, maybe he thought ''oh well they probably know what they're doing''

I agree with both of you gents.

I do like Harvester of Sorrow in addition to the 3 songs mentioned by Marcel.

Eh, I like it, but as you said, there's some fat that should have been cut. And maybe one or two songs that should have been left out (I'm thinking about Eye Of The Beholder and The Shortest Straw.)

Rating: 8 One and Eye Of beholder are best songs here iMO, Harvester is like , good but not best, but I like VH1 video from this song thrash the communism away
