Mandatory Metallica -- August 6th, 2008

Sorry for the lateness on this one, just got my internet back for good. (Or so it seems.)

Trapped Under Ice
King Nothing
...And Justice For All

If only Metallica kept their sound like in Trapped Under Ice, they'd be bigger than they are today. Well, maybe not overall, but certainly in the metal fans' eyes. Great speed, the vocals go well along with the song and the solo is nice. Very nice indeed.

King Nothing isn't as good as Trapped Under Ice, unfortunately. The biggest turn-off to this song for me is not the vocals or the music, but definitely the lyrics. How stupid can it get? If you're a rock or metal band and include the lyrics "I wish I may/I wish I might" in any part of your song, then...yeah.

...And Justice For All is such a long song. Good thing it's not terrible. I think this song would work much better being much faster, but for what it is, it's okay. James sounds pretty good most of the time. I think the vocalwork on this CD is where I most prefer Metallica. Overall, pretty good.

Actually I like all three of those songs, most of all ...And Justice for All though.

Trapped Under Ice is one of all time favorite Metallica songs.

Just as they were getting big, i was reading an article about Metallica in i think People, or some other magazine in a doctor's waiting room.

they referenced Trapped, saying it's not about some weird philosophical dismay of man (or however they put it), it's about a guy trapped under the ice.

hey, it stuck with me.

King is great live- I turn it off when it's on the radio and haven't played Load in years

Trapped and Justice are in their top ten in my humble opinion
