Album of the Day
…And Justice For All
Metallica's fourth album, ...AND JUSTICE FOR ALL, was their final one with longtime producer Flemming Rasmussen, their first full-length release with bassist Jason Newsted ... and the band's commercial breakthrough, quickly going multi-platinum. The set's nine epic songs include “Harvester Of Sorrow,” “Eye Of The Beholder” and “One,” a Top 40 hit single that later won a Best Metal Performance Grammy. Featuring complex song structures and lyrics about assaults on civil liberties and the environment that couldn't be more timely, ...AND JUSTICE FOR ALL remains among the most ambitious and inspiring hard rock albums of the last quarter century, and we'll give it another spin today in honor of vocalist James Hetfield's birthday.
