yeah, it's probably my favorite song they've done since 1988. sad I never got to hear it live (well not yet at least).
I took MoP off this list because I'm so over familiar with it. not cos it isn't deserving.

Eye of the Beholder I used to wonder why they never did live, then I heard one of the rare live versions, and hoooo god, James outright can't do that chorus at all. it's on his break point and he just struggles to sing it. even in 1989.

Not that I don't love others, but if I only had 10 Metallica songs to listen to for the rest of my life, it would be these.
(just as an aside, I'm listening to the singles from Hardwired for the first time since they came out, and they're sounding pretty great)
