While fans chomp at the bit in anticipation for Metallica’s next album, due sometime in 2007, the first-ever music video retrospective DVD has been released on Warner Bros. Records. The disc includes 21 Metallica videos dating back to the …And Justice For All period up to the St. Anger album. The Videos - 1989-2004 includes an abundance of Metallica music videos. In addition to being loaded (and Re-Loaded) with audio/ visual delights, the disc has some killer bonus features, like the home video of 2 of One, which was previously offered only on VHS. The video of “One” is arguably Metallica’s most artistic endeavor up until the time of its release in 1989. At the beginning of 2 of One a mulletized Lars Ulrich talks about the genesis of “One”, a concept that singer/guitarist James Hetfield presented to the drummer during the writing process of the Master of Puppets album. Also included in the bonus features is a grim, theatrical version of “The Unforgiven” shot in black and white. Metallica has never ceased to stir up emotion or excitement in its videos with evocative and haunted imagery. Included in the package, of course, is the super smash hit “Enter Sandman”, for those who have just got to have it. “Wherever I May Roam”, “Sad But True”, and the depressing “Hero of the Day” will keep you watching, doing your best Lars on whatever your sitting on.

Although the band began to gain commercial appeal after the release of …And Justice For All and Metallica (Black Album), some of us think that Metallica had never burned brighter or rocked harder than in the days when the late Cliff Burton was in the band. It is my contention that after 1991, the year when the Black Album was released, that was the beginning of the end for the band that once ruled the world. Their later works just don’t measure up to the sheer brilliance of the music they were making in the early days. . When I saw a photo shoot of the guys wearing shorter hair and smoking cigars, it was time to call the heavy metal hearse (black, of course) and haul the band away. Maybe new bassist Robert Trujillo will inject the needed vitality and brutality into this band that has all the potential to be the kings they once were. Notwithstanding my strong sentiment about which era of Metallica ruled the most, the videos in this collection are well chosen to represent Metallica’s most commercial and popular music. In the end, regardless of cigars, hairdos, Napster and musical experimentation sometimes gone awry, how can you not like the band that brought us this far? Go get this DVD.
