3 stars Metallica - '.And Justice for All.' 3.75 stars

The last of Metallica's thrash/prog period.

Although this album holds most of their longest songs, and have some of their more complex compositions, I still wouldn't say this is the most prog. That would still have to go to 'Master of Puppets'. One of the reasons is because this album's speed is like a snail compared to the last two. The first song is a good example, and check out Lars Ulrich's terrible drum sound, and as a matter of fact, the entire production on this album is pretty bad.

None of the songs are too bad besides the lackluster opener 'Blackened', but some just carry on and become quite samey and just stretched beyond their grasp. Although there were some great tracks like 'One', '.And Justice for All' and 'To Live is to Die'. These songs were as prog as Metallica got. None of the other tracks quite lived up to the for mentioned ones.

This was a very good album, just didn't have a lot of punch to it like the others did. Well worth it for the three or four great tracks.
