About this album

…And Justice for All is the fourth studio album by American heavy metal band Metallica. Elektra Records released the album on August 25, 1988. This is the first Metallica studio album to feature bassist Jason Newsted, since it is the first after the tragic death of the group’s former bassist Cliff Burton.

The album’s dark subject material, featuring references to nuclear apocalypse, injustice in the law system, limited freedom, war, insanity and hate, is accompanied by the most complex song structures to this date in Metallica’s discography. The album is also noted for its near lack of bass guitar and dry production and therefore has been called a “slightly flawed masterpiece and the pinnacle of Metallica’s progressive years” by’s reviewer.

The front cover depicts the statue of Lady Justice cracked and bound by ropes, with both of her scales filled with dollars and both of her breasts exposed. The words “…And Justice for All” are written in graffiti to the right. The cover is made by Stephen Gorman after a concept by James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich.

The album has sold over 8 million copies in the US alone according to the RIAA and was the best selling Metallica record upon its release. Metallica released four singles from …And Justice for All, “Eye of the Beholder”, “Harvester of Sorrow”, “…And Justice for All” and “One”.

    I beg you, tag this shit correcly, let's put this album at second place that it's where it belongs.

    the "..." implies a sense of satire to the subject of justice (or lack thereof) so it's quite necessary

    @ClaudioGurgel: não creio. Para mim, é onde o Lars melhor tocou.
