Metallica began their long journey back home some time after nearly imploding during the recording of 2003’s St. Anger. Hardwired…To Self-Destruct arrives 13 years after that album but it, almost more than its 2008 predecessor Death Magnetic, feels like a repudiation of the band’s ’90s, the years when Metallica shined up, slowed down, and got a lot weirder. Sprawling over two discs when it could’ve fit onto one (an aesthetic choice certainly meant to evoke memories of 1988’s double LP …And Justice for All), Hardwired…To Self-Destruct does indeed rage, roaring out the gate with a title track where James Hetfield bellows “We’re so f***ed/S*** out of luck.” That palpable desperation recalls the free-floating angst that fueled Metallica’s ’80s, but Hardwired…To Self-Destruct doesn’t find the quartet scrambling to sound as ferocious as they did during their heyday. Often, they do unleash the fury — “Moth into Flame” gallops forward in a manner reminiscent of “Battery” — but there’s no denying that Metallica are an older band now, either incapable or uninterested in maintaining that intensity over the course of a full double album. When they slow down, it’s not exclusively to churn and brood. “Murder One,” a salute to departed Motörhead leader Lemmy, may belong in that category, but “Am I Savage?” teeters between ominous dirge and intricate transitions, while “Dream No More” has a backbeat that nearly swings. “ManUNKind” also has a bit of buried funk in its rhythms and that, along with the preponderance of complicated suites, is a clue that Hardwired…To Self-Destruct is primarily the work of Hetfield and Lars Ulrich. Kirk Hammett doesn’t have a single songwriting credit — allegedly, this is due to the guitarist losing an iPhone filled with riffs just prior to recording — and he’s also diminished in terms of solos, leaving Hardwired as a showcase for Metallica’s musical constructions. If the riffs don’t always sink in deeply — and if the entire production feels slightly monochromatic — what impresses here is the thought and musicality within the compositions and the performances, elements that have always been at the band’s core and shine brightly on Hardwired…To Self-Destruct. ~~AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Metallica – …And Justice For All (1988/2016) [Official Digital Download 24bit/96kHz]

The group’s best-selling album at the time, …And Justice for All is the fourth studio album by Metallica. It was the band’s first studio album to feature bassist Jason Newsted after the death of Cliff Burton in 1986. …And Justice for All is musically progressive, with long and complex songs, fast tempos, and few verse-chorus structures. The album is noted for its sterile production, which producer Flemming Rasmussen attributed to his absence during the mixing process. The lyrics feature themes of political and legal injustice seen through the prisms of censorship, war, and nuclear brinkmanship. The single “One” earned Metallica its first Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance in 1990.
