Metallica Looking for More of Your Cash
Of course I am probably going to attempt to score one of these for myself, eventhough I have bought the album four times already, and waiting on my Monopoly game to get here too!
METALLICA's 1988 album "...And Justice for All" will available on green vinyl this Thursday, June 23 from 1 p.m. PT. Only 1,000 of these sets were pressed. 500 copies will be sold to members of The Metallica Club at Metallica.com (make sure you log in before heading over to the store) and 500 copies will be sold to the public at BecauseSoundMatters.com. This deluxe limited edition green vinyl release of the album comes as a four-LP, 45 rpm, 180-gram, high-performance vinyl box set.
METALLICA's fourth album, "…And Justice for All", was originally released on August 25, 1988 through Elektra Records. It was the band's first studio LP to feature Jason Newsted, who replaced 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, was accompanied by what were the most complex song structures in METALLICA's discography at the time of the LP's release. 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 AllMusic.com's reviewer.
