1 of 11 thought this review was well written

This is another Unofficial (i think) album release, made in 1993

The Four Horsemen (Kill 'Em All)

This is one of the greatest Metallica songs of all time, it is from their faster of the albums Kill 'Em All, it is a great fast track that includes 2 solos, one is fast and one is slow, the vocals are a bit rugged but it was 1983, the lyrics are great none the less, one of my favourite riffs, it will be one of yours too.
4/5

Seek And Destroy (Kill 'Em All)

Seek And Destroy is a really great song, the most famous off the Kill 'Em All album (i think) i love this song no matter how many times i listen to it or how many times i play it, if you ever hear this live you will see what a great song it is (i think playing the Kill 'Em All stuff live for Metallica shows how great the songs really are)
5/5

For Whom The Bell Tolls (Ride The Lightning)

This is a great song, but i think most people think that a solo is kinda needed, well thats what they thought at the start when it was first released but soon became one of their most famous songs, i like the Bass intro with distortion and wah, i also think the drums is great too, the lyrics and vocals are great and better then Kill 'Em All.
5/5

Creeping Death (Ride The Lightning)

This is a cool song, it is about the plague set upon the Pharoh of egypt by Moses, this is a really great riff, i like the solo in it, and if you are lucky enough to own the Live *** Binge And Purge box set you will see that this is great live with the crowd chanting "Kill Kill Kill" during the song, (i can't remember what part)
5/5

Master Of Puppets (Master Of Puppets)

I love this song because of the energy in it, this song was the most favourite of the ex-bassist Cliff Burton (R.I.P) i love the interlude and the solo in this song, the lyrics rules too, i love the chorus "Master of puppets is pulling the strings, twisting your mind smashing your dreams"
this is thought to be the most famous Metallica song in the world.
5/5

Damage Inc. (Master Of Puppets)

I like how this song fades in during the intro it sounds kinda soft at the start and then after a few volume swells becomes damned heavy i love this song because it is fast, the drums are cool, and the vocals are the best written (imo) from the Master Of Puppets album because it has the word "F*&$" in the lyrics. (hehehe)
5/5

One (...And Justice For All)

This is one of the most well known Metallica songs ever, i like the riff and the vocals, it has a good use of the Double Bass Drums Lars got installed during Master Of Puppets, the song starts off fast but gets faster before the solo, this song is one of the only that you can hear Bass in for the ...And Justice For All album.
5/5

Harvester Of Sorrow (...And Justice For All)

This is a great heavy song from the ...And Justice For All album, i like the intro because it starts with clean and distorted guitar, i love this song because it is kinda slow, the lyrics are cool too, i dont listen to this song often (i had to switch the ...And Justice For All album on) i havent really heard this song so i can't say much about it.
5/5

Enter Sandman (Black)

This is a great song it is easy to play and it sounds cool, most people like this song more above others for the wah solo IMO it is very cool and i love playing it, no wonder it is on the Heavy Best playlist, it is a great heavy song.
5/5

The Unforgiven (Black)

This song is both on the best ballads album and the Heavy Best, it is really a clash of both, being soft in the Chorus and having the verses heavy, the interlude and solo are the best point of this song i rekon.
5/5

...And Justice For All (...And Justice For All)

This is a really cool song, i love the lyrics on it, the solo made by Kirk was massive too, the song is well put together, too bad there isn't any bass frequencies as they go really well with the guitar (my band plays this song live so i need the bass book to practise) the best part of this thing IMO is the outro how it does the bendy thingys and then the sliding thingys then the bendy things again, if you own the Bass book for the album Jason does a really cool solo type thing at the end too.
5/5

Pros
-It has a really good choice of Metal songs
-it has a lot of my favourite songs on it

Cons
-i dont know where to get it.
-you will probably need to order it from somewhere, i did

Overall this is a really great song collection of Metallica songs, luckly it was during the Black and under so it didn't have the Load and Re-Load songs in it.
10/10

I think you are implying somewhere that Lars didn't use double bassdrums until Master of Puppets, but he did. Very OK review.

I dont know. i think he has them. it would be easier to alternate bass hits on the faster songs like hit the lights.

yeah lars uses double bass on kill em all. for example listen to the intro of the four horseman, going into the verse.

Lars used Double Bass from Kill em All. The problem was the recording style they used didn't really accentuate them until Master of Puppets, and when they cranked the kickdrums way up on ...And Justice For All the basslines got lost as the low end of the mix was dominated by Lars' kickdrums. But hey, who cares, it's all good shit.

This isn't a album review comment place thing anymore. its about double bass... but I like it.
I was just listening to The Four Horseman and during the verse, its like double bass triplets. And other songs is fight fire with fire, leper messiah, blackened, one, dyers eve, st. anger. I know there is more but im not a drummer. Correct me.

Just a question, are the songs on this album exactly the same as on the other Albums? or is it a recording from a show, or just re-recorded?

A rather pointless album, since most people interested will have downloaded/copied/bought the proper albums.
Not bad as an album, but 3 songs on it are rather monotonous/boring:
Seek and destroy, Creeping death and damage inc. I know they are considerec "classic" songs, but a fast solo or a shouted "fuck" do not elevate these songs above mediocre.
do not misunderstand me, I'm a Metallica fan, but "Fade to black", "the thing that should not be" and "blackened" are just way better songs. ( not counting in songs made after the black album, that speaks ), I'm currently listening to "turn the page"
