The Videos: 1989-2004

(Warner Bros.)

Metallica's lyrical and visual adaptation of Dalton Trumbo's 1939 anti-war novel Johnny Got His Gun for "One" represents the pinnacle of all metal videos. The lurking shadows and stalking depths of its black-and-white footage became a standard motif for the Bay area wrecking act. Conveniently packaged here are all 21 of the group's videos, including Load's "Mama Said." In retrospect, the Paradise Lost imagery of "Until It Sleeps" accurately represented the band's well-publicized fall from grace, though their artistic merits, at least visually, were never hindered. This one's a must for every member of the snake pit. ***
