Garage Inc. (1998)

Metallica - Garage Inc.
Released November 24, 1998

This is a pretty damn good album. I like many of the covers here, and this album is actually better than the misguided St. Anger. Metallica's cover of Turn the Page is very well done and powerful.

I like the choice of Sabra Cadabra, an obscure Sabbath track off their Sabbath, Bloody Sabbath album. Their version of Tuesday's Gone (a cover of a Lynyrd Skynyrd song) reminds me of their beautiful (and unjustly trashed) songs Mama Said and Low Man's Lyric. Hetfield does burp before the song starts (bad), but luckily, the rest of it is so good that you forget about this. The inclusion of Garage Days, Revisited EP is a nice bonus, and having copies of Am I Evil? and So What? are great too.

I'm not really sure why Metallica did a cover album (and a 2 CD set too), but I like it and think it's a worthy addition to their catalogue.
