Track 01: The Unforgiven 2 (6:36) (From the album ReLOAD)
Track 02: The Thing That Should Not Be (Live) (7:09) (Original version available on the album MASTER OF PUPPETS)
REVIEW: The Unforgiven 2 ballad will sound a bit strange if you are a fan of the original Unforgiven song, however it won't take long before you'll be singing the lyrics in a duet with James. This time a man in looking on his past and realizing that he was stubborn and did make a big mistake, asking for his girlfriend's love, knowing he doesn't deserve it, and that she 'is Unforgiven Too.' More like a reprise of the original Unforgiven, yet unique in it's own way, different than most 2-part songs released before.
First things first: the print on the actual CD identifies The Thing That Should Not Be (Live) as having a play time of 4:40. However, the actual play time is 7:09. With that said and done, the song is a must-have for anybody who enjoys a great heavy and mysterious song bordering on the edge of insanity leading up to a dramatic climax and a sudden ending. Not your typical low-quality live track.
"Unforgiven II," continuing the story of "The Unforgiven" from the (in)famous "black album," is a terrific song. (I'll leave the arguing over whether it's "proper" Metallica to people who have more time on their hands than I do.) The storyline is Metallica-dark and the music complements it well. It's worth having if only to find out how "The Unforgiven" ends, but stands just as well on its own.
Country, though? Please. Either learn more about country music or find another epithet to hurl at the band.
