3 stars "Sad but True" is a single/EP release by US metal act Metallica. It was released in 1991 through Vertigo Records. "Sad but True" features 4 tracks and a playing time of 24:55 minites so there are plenty of quantity for the money.

We of course get the "regular" version of "Sad but True" which is taken directly off the 1991 "Metallica" album. Weīre also treated to a demo version of that track, which is a fan thing more than anything. The real treats here are the re-arranged version of "Nothing Else Matters" titled "Nothing Else Matters (Elevator version)". This version has quite a few added strings and a couple of other surprises. It doesnīt beat the orginal version but itīs pretty interesting. The other treat is a live version of "Creeping Death". Iīve heard Metallica more inspired but this live version of the classic track is pretty good.

"Sad but True" is not the most necessary release by Metallica if you are not a hardcore fan, but itīs a pretty good release deserving a 2.5 - 3 star (55%) rating.
