...And Justice for All [Explicit Lyrics]

All Music Guide - Steve Huey
The most immediately noticeable aspect of ...And Justice for All isn't Metallica's still-growing compositional sophistication or the apocalyptic lyrical portrait of a society in decay. It's the weird, bone-dry production. The guitars buzz thinly, the drums click more than pound, and Jason Newsted's bass is nearly inaudible. It's a shame that the cold, flat sound obscures some of the sonic details, because ...And Justice for All is Metallica's most complex, ambitious work; every song is an expanded suite, with only two of the nine tracks clocking in at under six minutes. It takes a while to sink in, but given time, ...And Justice for All reveals some of Metallica's best ...

It's the weird, bone-dry production. The guitars buzz thinly, the drums click more than pound, and Jason Newsted's bass is nearly inaudible.

It takes a while to sink in, but given time, ...And Justice for All reveals some of Metallica's best material. It also reveals the band's determination to pull out all the compositional stops, throwing in extra sections, odd-numbered time signatures, and dense webs of guitar arpeggios and harmonized leads. At times, it seems like they're doing it simply because they can; parts of the album lack direction and probably should have been trimmed for momentum's sake. Pacing-wise, the album again loosely follows the blueprint of Ride the Lightning, though not as closely as Master of Puppets. This time around, the fourth song -- once again a ballad with a thrashy chorus and outro -- gave the band one of the unlikeliest Top 40 singles in history; "One" was an instant metal classic, based on Dalton Trumbo's antiwar novel Johnny Got His Gun and climaxing with a pulverizing machine-gun imitation. As a whole, opinions on ...And Justice for All remain somewhat divided: some think it's a slightly flawed masterpiece and the pinnacle of Metallica's progressive years; others see it as bloated and overambitious. Either interpretation can be readily supported, but the band had clearly taken this direction as far as it could. The difficulty of reproducing these songs in concert eventually convinced Metallica that it was time for an overhaul.

    REVOLUTIONARY

    this is my favorite Metallica record, next to Master of Puppets. Other than the ingenious riffery and lead playing, the pure rawness of this album is what makes this album my favorite. Many people have complained that the studio work was not all it could have been, but that is why I love it so much. It's raw, and it's real, and it is exactly what you would hear live. One and Dyers Eve are my favorites on this disc.

    The Very Best of Metallica!

    This is the best Metallica CD yet. Kirk Hammett displays his awesome guitar skills. "Blackened" and "Eye of the Beholder" are flawless. I've been a Metallica fan for 9 years and I was enthralled when I heard this CD. It has everything a metal fan would want from a Metallica album. There needs to be about 45 more stars for this one.

    The Best Ever

    Oh my god! When i bought this cd my friends told me it was a waste of money. After I listened to it i was speechless. This is by far the best cd ever recorded. This cd sold more than a few million copies. This cd is so good im sure the opening track Blackened could sell a few million no problem. Some times I think what the world would be like if Metallica never came to be.After listening to this cd it made me want to play the guitar really bad. The whole idea of this message is that this cd is the best ever! Forget Slayer!!

    THIS ALBUM ROCKS!!!!

    Justice is just soooo good!!! Some people complain about the sound quality, but I love it, along with the crunchy guitar sounds. Awesome riffs, awesome vocals, awesome solos, awesome lyrics. You have to check out Blackened, One, Dyer's Eve, To Live Is To Die, The Shortest Straw.

    The One

    It was destined to happen ... After the death of their bassist Cliff Burton, Metallica unleashed a compilation which could easily be categorised as a masterpiece. Displaying anger and hatred, finely blended with their musical genius, the album also happens to be my favorite one from this band. They have definitely experimented in this album giving it a progressive touch. Ulrich has beaten the drums like a madman and Newsted proved that there was no mistake in taking him, with the pounding bass complementing the drums well. The feeling for the album is visible in the first track (Blackened) itself and tends to grow as you keep listening. Harvester of Sorrow, ...And Justice for all and Shortest Straw are songs to look out for. Undoubtedly, One is my pick for the album.

    every now and then...

    sometime i get bored of music, and listen to a bit of s*** - your usual plastic and neon merchandise with a lot of underwear... i say to myself, why not, is been a long day, and this stuff is easy to follow...neway then it comes to be that I play one of THOSE...i mean metallica albums... and then its so clear why not.... i put tail-between legs and return. its hard to describe Justice for all... its the feeling... every track comes from somewhere around the gut region... u stare around wide eyed for minutes afterward, thinking..."what the hell just happened" and wonder why your nech is aching your hair is all gone. its got great riffs, superb solos and very disturbing content... and if the songs are long you wont notice it.. certainly not if you dig intricate guitar work, bold drumming, and in your face, vein popping rage. then u get up cos u have things to do, and feel great contempt for everyone who hasn't yet heard the music this album has to offer.

    And Good Metal for All

    Good guitars, good message, good songs? What else would you need? Especially "Dyers Eve" is a good one. Fast and strong. I think Metallica should have more tracks like that.

    SWEET

    Every song is awesomme exept track 7 and the title track is very long, and over rated. But Eye of the Beholder, One, Blackened and the rest is almost perfect.

    A beautiful album from the best band of all time

    Metallica is my favorite band and I look up to them as some of my heroes. The melodic riffs in the guitars and the sound of the drums make this album a great addition to the collection of music in this world. It is my personal favorite and I would recommend it to any Metallica or Heavy Metal fan.

    Whoa One of MetallicA's best

    ...And Justice For All has just about everything u can ask for with MetallicA. The guitar tone is just phenomonal. The solos are some of their best. One is a great song along with blackened and ...And Justice For All. You know it's a good song when a band can carry it for 9:45 and still keep you wanting to listen to it

    Beautiful

    Def. The BEST Metallica cd out there, S&M competes with it. To Live Is To Die, among the others are well-written songs, and if you wanna learn how rock music can be ''pretty'' music listen to this cd.

    One of the best, just needs a remix!!!!!

    This has to be the most heaviest Metallica album ever!!! Even my friend who listens to all the death metal sh1t and has his own death metal band (called Sangora-you've just gotta hear these guys!!) agrees that it is as heavy as death metal, especially James' growls!!! It has the chug and crunch, but this original version lacks one thing. You know Jason is pounding it out in that studio, and you have heard him live play the bass essentials at the concerts, but the equaliser on the mixing board must have MAJORLY stuffed up!!! You know the strength is there, but you can't feel it, it is just a mere hum!! It is sad I know, SAD BUT TRUUUE! If they re-mixed it so the bass becomes powerful like it is meant to be, and re-released it with the same cover and pics etc., then you will be able to hear PROPERLY what Jason is playing. It is a pity, such a great musician and on one of the best albums you can't hear what he is doing properly.

    Great thrash tunes, but lousy production

    This could have been Metallica's best album, but it is weakened somewhat by the poor production, particularly the fact that there's almost no bass. However, this doesn't ruin the disc. Over the course of nine extended length tracks, the band fires off powerful riffs, dark but thought-provoking lyrics and some wicked solos as well. This was the last gasp of the old, underground-thrash Metallica before the big ''sell-out'', so despite the bad production, it's still a must-have.

    ...And Justice for None

    While having great messages and powerful lyrics, the production has damaged this CD. While being great lyrically, the tones seem to merge into one beat for the whole album. If only Bob Rock had produced this album
