Discography Reviews: Metallica – …And Justice for All

This I would say is Metallica’s latest (and probably last) album with thoroughly stable song material. Their tendency for collecting volatile series of substance in order to create album impersonations is fortunately lacking here. Justice is solid and concentrated, despite its lenght. We are invited to a loaded […]

Discography Reviews: Metallica – S/T

It is perhaps a strange thing to call an album that has sold over 16 million copies and been number one in 10 countries underrated. But ”Black Album” is, despite its huge success, underrated. Criticism of the more commercial focus has been frequent among fans, nostalgics and random […]
