Remastered re-release of the fourth full-length album by the legendary American Thrash Metal band.
It was released on August 25, 1988 through Elektra Records. It is the first full-length Metallica album to feature bassist Jason Newsted following the death of Cliff Burton in 1986. (Newsted had previously participated on the cover album “The $5.98 E.P.: Garage Days Re-Revisited” EP, which was his first recorded work with Metallica). It's also was the last Metallica album with which Rasmussen worked on as a co-producer. It was also the first Metallica album not to feature an instrumental track (although "To Live Is to Die" is mostly instrumental, with the lyrics consisting only of a short spoken word section).The album was initially released on one vinyl disc, but soon after re-released (without additional tracks) as a double-album.
Metallica's "And Justice For All" marked the band's gear-shift from underground heroes to the major league. Containing the band's first Top 40 single, the horror- filled "One", the album's hard-hitting lyrics and darkly intense feel delighted their ever-growing fanbase, reaching Number Six on the Billboard chart.
“...And Justice for All” was certified 8 x platinum by the RIAA on June 9, 2003.
