Product Description

(2CD) 1998 collection of cover versions, early recordings, b-sides & demos incorporating 'Garage Days Re-revisited '87' - features songs by Black Sabbath, Nick Cave, Thin Lizzy, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blue Oyster Cult & more

Amazon.com

This double-disc, all-covers release could come to represent a vital turning point for Metallica. While disc 2 is a straightforward collection of every cover the group have recorded in its 16-year history, disc 1 comprises 11 new selections drawn from the oeuvres of such exciting and diverse artists as U.K. punks Discharge and nefarious Australian Nick Cave. The heavier songs, such as the Mercyful Fate medley, Black Sabbath's "Sabbra Cadabra," and the Misfits' "Die Die My Darling," prove that nobody delivers a crunching riff better than these metal veterans. But it is vocalist-guitarist James Hetfields's confident approach toward the likes of Cave's "Loverman" and Bob Seger's "Turn the Page" that delivers the most electricity; here his raw, heartfelt vocals are largely untouched. Given that the recharged group spent only three weeks in the studio recording these tracks, it appears that these guys have remembered the value of studio spontaneity over laborious pontificating. Hopefully, that mindset will resurface in future projects. --Steffan Chirazi

The return of Metallica as I like to call it. Yea these boys aren't as hard and heavy as they used to be, but the material on both CD's is their best since 1991's S/T effort, a.k.a.The Black Album. The new songs, all non-originals, sound convincingly enough like Metallica wrote them. They play the songs as though they wrote them which seperates a weak and lame cover album to those who perform the songs as if they were the bands own. Out of the new comes a ripper versions of Bob Seger's Turn The Page, Lizzy's Whiskey In The Jar, Nick Lowe's Loverman, another Diamond Head tune It's Electric and BOC's Astronomy. The centerpiece has to be the Mercyful Fate medley, clocking in at over 10 mins., it takes balls to do King Diamond, and James and Crew pull it off fantasticly. The down side of disc 1 is Tuesday's Gone, in acoustic form is fine, but it pales in comparison to the studio tracks. On disc 2, the band's covers and B-sides from the start of their career all the way up to Lemmy's 50th birthday party bash are all here. The 9.98 Garage Days Ep is here in it's entirety, making it an essential purchase for those who don't already own it. Other gems are pretty much all the rest of the songs as well, So What, Breadfan, Stone Cold Crazy and Killing Time. But the centerpiece of the 2nd CD is the Motorhead covers. Live, raw, energetic, and with the Lemmymeister himself sound amazingly awesome. Well I've bored you enough, buy it if you haven't already.

THE BAND: James Hetfield (lead vocals, guitar), Kirk Hammett (guitars), Jason Newsted (bass), Cliff Burton (bass on "Am I Evil" and "Blitzkrieg" only), Lars Ulrich (drums & percussion).

THE DISC: (1998) 27 total tracks clocking in at approximately 137 minutes (disc-1 approximately 66 minutes, disc-2 approximately 71 minutes). Included with the disc is a 28-page booklet containing song titles/credits, Metallica band pictures old & new, album covers and/or band photos of artists being covered, and 20-pages of written bio by David Fricke (Managing Editor, Rolling Stone Magazine). Disc-1 recorded Sept/Oct 1998 at The Plant Studios, Sausalito, CA. Disc-2 recorded at numerous locations from 1984-95. This is their 8th album. Label - Elektra.

COMMENTS: All cover tunes. Brilliant idea. Metallica pays homage to the bands they grew up with and admired. Many of the songs they cover here are hard to find - and you may not find them anywhere else but here. A few of my all-time favorite Metallica tracks are here... "Blitzkrieg", "Stone Cold Crazy", and "Killing Time". New classics from disc-1 include "Sabbra Cadabra" (Black Sabbath), "Astronomy" (Blue Oyster Cult), "Tuesday's Gone" (Lynyrd Skynyrd), and "It's Electric" (Diamond Head). Two great covers of "Turn The Page" (Bob Seger) and "Whiskey In The Jar" (Thin Lizzy) were also excellent, but sadly destroyed by being over played on the radio. Other artists being covered on "Garage Inc." include those listed above as well as Danzig, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Killing Joke, Motorhead (4 songs featured), Queen, Budgie (2 songs), Mercyful Fate (the track "Mercyful Fate" is a medley of their songs - "Satan's Fall", "Curse of the Pharaohs", "A Corpse Without Soul", "Into The Coven", "Evil"...

Many of these reviews are obviously biased to one of the two CD's as preferred. I'd like to say that I've been a huge Metallica fan since the beginning (and along with most of you, lost faith with Load/Reload...) and I think both discs rule in their own respects. I bought the CD set originally because I wanted a digital copy of the EP (my vinyl is showing the wear). All of these tracks are classic Metallica. The Prince is one of the most blistering hard-core Metallica tracks ever- check out the solo's. They don't make em like that anymore... It took me several months before I even tried disc one, which is now a favorite as much as disc two. Disc one really demonstrates Hetfields incredible vocal power and range that is not as apparent on some of the noisy stuff. While disc 2 is an incredible adrenalin rush a la early Metallica, disc 1 really sticks with you long after the listen if you give it a chance... (My faves: Whiskey, Astronomy, Die Die Die My Darling, and Loverman).

For many years, Metallica's 1987 EP Garage Days Re-Revisited was the most sought-after item in their catalog; it was constantly bootlegged in the '90s, and often supplemented by a host of covers Metallica had released on singles and compilations throughout the years. By 1998, the band had understandably grown frustrated with this situation and decided to confront the problem head-on by reissuing all these rarities. Savvy businessmen that they are, they also realized they needed to give hardcore fans who already owned all the covers a reason to purchase the new set - hence, the expansion of the Garage Days EP to the double-disc blowout Garage Inc. The second disc's rarities are balanced by the first disc's new covers, the bulk of which were recorded following the Re-Load tour. It shouldn't come as a surprise that these covers recall the blooze'n'boogie heavy rock of the Loads, but what is a surprise is that Metallica seems to have found their footing in this style through other people's songs. Whether it's Bob Seger, Blue Öyster Cult, Thin Lizzy, Nick Cave, or the all-star jam on Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Tuesday's Gone," the band effortlessly makes the songs seem like their own, through a bizarre mix of respect and ballsy irreverence. Sure, it may not be nearly as raw as early Metallica, but it is a better listen than either of the Load records. And if raw is what you want, the equally diverse disc two provides all the thrills you could hope for. At one time, it might have seemed a little odd that Metallica would cover Budgie, Diamond Head, the Misfits, and Queen, but if Garage Inc. proves anything, it's that the group's musical instincts, risks, and sense of humor have made them the greatest metal band of the '80s and '90s.
