Right up front, let me that say that I love Metallica's "...And Justice For All" album. Well, let me be more clear. I love the SONGS on that album. The odd drum sound and the lack of bass have always made me scratch my head, and have caused a serious love/hate issue for me for years. (As if I don't have enough issues.) Well, the man who mixed the album, Steve Thompson, explains what happened. Hint: it rhymes with "Mars."
