Anger, anger and anger...!!! For sure, the best Metallica's album so far (and probably forever;followed by Ride the Lightning)! ... And Justice for All is at the same time the most agressive and the most completed album by the band. It's the most progressive and at the same time the most thrashing album by Metallica. The compositions are completed and created with superb songwriting and musicianship. I think this is true progressive metal album in terms of everything - length, composition, time signature, changes in the tempo etc. ! I regard this release as one of the first progressive metal album. and believe it's much better than Operation Mindcrime by Queensryche.

All that agression comes from the death of Cliff Burton. And all other band members descended their fury on the release in magnificent way. For me their full potential, because of the lost of their friend. There're not weak moment on the album.The album contains crashing sound with garage tunes implemented in opposition to Master of Puppets, where the sound is refined and not so cutting! There is acoustic guitar works that help the album to become some more progressive, than it would be without it. Lars Ulrich on drums is at his best performance here! The garage sound of the album helps every instrument to be outlined against the music as whole!

In spite of not being Metallica's big fan I acknowledge ... And Justice for All as classic gold treasure for the music. There are many influences on the progressive metal genre taken from this album! 5 stars!
