    Metallica’s take on 27 covers, October 13, 2006
    By 

    This review is from: Garage Inc (Audio CD)

    THE BAND: James Hetfield (lead vocals, guitar), Kirk Hammett (guitars), Jason Newsted (bass), Cliff Burton (bass on “Am I Evil” and “Blitzkrieg” only), Lars Ulrich (drums & percussion).

    THE DISC: (1998) 27 total tracks clocking in at approximately 137 minutes (disc-1 approximately 66 minutes, disc-2 approximately 71 minutes). Included with the disc is a 28-page booklet containing song titles/credits, Metallica band pictures old & new, album covers and/or band photos of artists being covered, and 20-pages of written bio by David Fricke (Managing Editor, Rolling Stone Magazine). Disc-1 recorded Sept/Oct 1998 at The Plant Studios, Sausalito, CA. Disc-2 recorded at numerous locations from 1984-95. This is their 8th album. Label – Elektra.

    COMMENTS: All cover tunes. Brilliant idea. Metallica pays homage to the bands they grew up with and admired. Many of the songs they cover here are hard to find – and you may not find them anywhere else but here. A few of my all-time favorite Metallica tracks are here… “Blitzkrieg”, “Stone Cold Crazy”, and “Killing Time”. New classics from disc-1 include “Sabbra Cadabra” (Black Sabbath), “Astronomy” (Blue Oyster Cult), “Tuesday’s Gone” (Lynyrd Skynyrd), and “It’s Electric” (Diamond Head). Two great covers of “Turn The Page” (Bob Seger) and “Whiskey In The Jar” (Thin Lizzy) were also excellent, but sadly destroyed by being over played on the radio. Other artists being covered on “Garage Inc.” include those listed above as well as Danzig, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Killing Joke, Motorhead (4 songs featured), Queen, Budgie (2 songs), Mercyful Fate (the track “Mercyful Fate” is a medley of their songs – “Satan’s Fall”, “Curse of the Pharaohs”, “A Corpse Without Soul”, “Into The Coven”, “Evil”… at over 11 minutes, it’s Metallica’s longest song ever recorded), etc. “Garage Inc.” enjoyed success on the charts – reached #2 on the Billboard Top 200 Album charts for 1998; singles “Turn the Page” (#1 on the Mainstream Rock charts), “Whiskey In The Jar” (#4 – also won a Grammy Award for best hard rock performance), and “Die, Die My Darling” (#26). This release – Great idea. Lots of music. Great songs (some more classic than others) played by one of the best metal bands of the ’80′s/90′s. Something for old/new fans alike with plenty of thrash and mainstream heavy metal. Great sound production. Awesome set of discs (5 stars).

    I have to give my 2cents, January 10, 2000

    Rim Jobber (Ohio, USA) –

    This review is from: Garage Inc (Audio CD)

    Many of these reviews are obviously biased to one of the two CD’s as preferred. I’d like to say that I’ve been a huge Metallica fan since the beginning (and along with most of you, lost faith with Load/Reload…) and I think both discs rule in their own respects. I bought the CD set originally because I wanted a digital copy of the EP (my vinyl is showing the wear). All of these tracks are classic Metallica. The Prince is one of the most blistering hard-core Metallica tracks ever- check out the solo’s. They don’t make em like that anymore… It took me several months before I even tried disc one, which is now a favorite as much as disc two. Disc one really demonstrates Hetfields incredible vocal power and range that is not as apparent on some of the noisy stuff. While disc 2 is an incredible adrenalin rush a la early Metallica, disc 1 really sticks with you long after the listen if you give it a chance… (My faves: Whiskey, Astronomy, Die Die Die My Darling, and Loverman).

    The band matures once more…, November 29, 1998
    By A Customer
    This review is from: Garage Inc (Audio CD)

    Unless you’ve been raised in a dark, bottomless pit, you’ve most likely encountered, in any various form, the rich, driving, passions of the band who were undoubtedly one of the pivotal instigators of not only thrash metal, but mainstream metal: Metallica. In their humble beginnings, the band raged, an endless barrage of furious riffs and soulful vocals. As they progressed, the band matured, ever more noticeably; by their second album, they were approaching profound issues, suicide, self-destruction, genocide, and as the years passed, they kept growing. …And Justice For All’s “One” hit us hard, and “Enter Sandman”, claimed as the bands first assault into the Mainstream medium gave the band their first real taste of worldwide addulation. Gone were the complex riffage of “Master of Puppets”, the symphonic intricacies of “To Live Is To Die”; the band had matured unexpectedly, and now favored the soul of the epic over the neckbreak speed of their founding fathers. Their 6th album, “Load”, became their ultimate progression, and deviation. Tracks like “Mama Said” and “Ronnie”, tributes to James Hetfield’s lifelong love of Southern Rock, shocked us all. The band still rocked, as “Ain’t My Bitch” and “The Thorn Within” showed, but for some the change was just too much. When the band released their 7th album, “ReLoad”, we saw a mild return to the roots that birthed them. Tracks like “Fuel” and “Devil’s Dance” were undoubted onslaughts of pure metal; and yet, other tracks, like “Low Man’s Lyric”, and even the heartfelt “Unforgiven II” were still considered offset. The band was growing up, and nobody quite knew why. They still knew how to rock, so why didn’t they? Why were the magnificent stylings of “Battery” being discarded? Why couldn’t the band just, well, rock? It’s hard to say; it’s all based on individual opinion, and some would argue that now, more than ever, the band has reached their ultimate capacity, and has never rocked harder. The new album, “Garage Inc.”, is hailed in halves: Some leap in ecstatic joy, praising the return to the “Old Style” found on parts of the album. Others rejoice, finding the band has matured even more, as tracks like Seger’s “Turn the Page” and Sabbath’s “SabraCadabra” illustrate. They can still pound out the riffs, but they do it almost strategically now, however unconventionally. They explore new realms, and it’s apparent that the band has never enjoyed themselves more. You can feel James Hetfield pouring his soul into his work; He’s doing what he loves, and it’s very self-evident. “Garage Inc.” is sure to please both Metallica generations. Those who crave the old Metallica, who want to meet an endless barrage of metal in it’s purest form, will find their desires fulfilled on this album. Those who need a matured perspective, a steady stream of soulful expression, will find their hopes were not in vain. The album is almost perfect, and will no doubt be one of the most momentous and provocative of Metallica’s ventures.

    What a mess, March 9, 2010

    Will D (Anchorage, AK) –

    = Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
    This review is from: Hot Rod: Garage to Glory (CD-ROM)

    This is such a horrible, abysmal excuse for a game. I can’t believe the people at Hot Rod actually put their name on this. Even giving it slack for the graphics (since it was released in 2004), they’re still well below par. The tracks are lifeless and dull. The car models are ok, but horribly blocky. I couldn’t get my wheel to work with this. Everytime i’d start the game with my wheel plugged in (Logitech G27, btw, works on EVERY other racing game out there), the menu selection would scroll constantly, so you couldn’t select anything you wanted. That’s ok though, because the game plays with the keyboard like it was designed that way! That’s not a compliment in case you were wondering! The sounds are horrible, the graphics are horrible, the controls are horrible. Maybe there’s a fun game under the hood. No… there’s not.

    The game plays out like this: You are given enough money to buy a beat up car. I went through a few of the beginner cars, and they all were in the 50-60hp range. No, that’s not a typo… 50-60hp! This makes for some exciting 21-22 second quarter mile times at a blazing 45mph! You get to run single races and bet only $20 against cars you stand a chance against! You are not given the option to bet more. The upgrades that really make an affect are well out of your budget, so you get to do dozens of 22 second passes to make enough to even buy one decent upgrade. Sure, you can do a tournament for a chance at more money, but to have a realistic chance, you need an 18 second car. So, back to those single races again for $20 at a time. Because these cars are so slow, there is zero driving involved. Hit the gas at the green, the car stays straight on it’s own, shift at the right time and let the agony carry you to the finish line 22 seconds later! I never had the stomach to keep going to get a faster car.

    So much potential for a title like this. I love the repair/upgrade aspect to this game, but everything else is a train wreck. Even if you can find this game for $1, it’s still too much to pay for this. If you want a decent drag racing game, try the Bethesda IHRA series of games, but even with those, i use the term “decent” loosely.

    Garage to Glory? Wouldn’t know if never made it out of the garage!, May 24, 2007

    This review is from: Hot Rod: Garage to Glory (CD-ROM)

    Do not buy this game unless you are sure that your machine will be able to play it. Although I was able to install it without a problem, when running the game itself nothing is rendered. About the only thing I was able to do with the game is listen to the sound. The game makers have no knowledge nor were able to help me with my problem. If you think you will have better luck then go right ahead and buy the game, but I recommend that you don’t.
