25 years ago today, …And Justice for All the fourth studio album by American heavy metal band Metallica, was released by Elektra Records. It was their first full length album to feature bassist Jason Newsted, following the death of Cliff Burton in 1986. …And Justice for All saw the band lose their bottom end as Newsted’s bass was almost mixed out completely and add some elements of progressive metal to their trademark thrash sound. The album featured songs with themes of political and legal injustice, war, and censorship.
