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.

I think he means 99% of new music isn't good.

How would one know unless one listened to everything? I probably listen to less than 1% of new music myself and most others would be struggling to find the time to really listen, in depth, to the majority of new releases.

As much as I think AJFA is flawed, it's still better than 99% of the crap out there.

Hence it's going from a 6 to a 7.

Does this mean you think 99% of music isn't good?

It just means I don't like 99% of music.

Some of it is pure genre though - y'know like Mongolian Throat Singing.

On a serious note, my point was here I am giving AJFA a 6 yet I enjoy it more than say Warfather or Savage Messiah which I gave 7s.
