2 stars "Eye of the Beholder" is a single release by US thrash metal/heavy metal act Metallica. There are three different versions of the single. A promotional CD version which features an edit of the title track, a promotional 12ī vinyl version which features the title track and the Budgie cover "Breadfan" and a 7ī vinyl single version which features the title track and the edit of the title track.

The Budgie cover is well played and as always Metallica put their mark on a cover version. As "Breadfan" is both available on the "Harvester of Sorrow (1988)" single and on the "Garage Inc. (1998)" compilation album, "Eye of the Beholder" is a hardcore fan release and a 2.5 star rating is warranted. Thereīs nothing wrong with the quality though.
