This song needs no intro (but the intro in cool - nice pun!)
Tris | UK | 06/23/2001

"This song is the best. It is the best song by Metallica, and Metallica are the best band, so logically it is the best song ever written in the entire history of the universe ever ever ever amen period. The song starts with a clean guitar riff which is slightly dark and atonal. This is followed by some high reverb clean guitar from Kirk, which fits in with the harmony. This is the shadow of the vocals , which is followed by the chorus with some powerful and amazing harmonies and chords, with a complicated guitar arrangement and an even more complicated drum beat (quite original by Lars - but he's probably the only one in the world who can play it!). After this cool, chilling intro, the vocals starts - with lyrics based upon a soldier being crippled in a war and cannot stand life anymore, and is trying to understand his situation - e.g. comparing him self with a baby in the womb, which cannot survive when pulled out prematurely - just like his drip pumps life that he feels to him. The songs sounds dark but strangely bright yet sad and cool. The second verse is simmilar, followed by more fat guitar solos until the peice speeds up into a distortion riff, with powerful and angry vocals showing how the war has taken everything from him and left him with life in hell. This is followed by what seems to be a musical depiction of hell, with fast and heavy guitars and the most awesome guitar solo ever by Kirk which is at the height of this - also showing how damn good a player he is - easily comparible with Hedrix, Clapton and Santana. The peice continues on the riff without another spoken lyric, with another solo before ending abruptly after another fast riff passage - an overdoes of adrenaline on a disk - you can really feel the anger and if you dont have chills every time you listen to it then your either German or have defunctionate vasoconstriction muscles. The best song ever - and even better when performed on the S&M ablum. If you havnt heard it then i suggest you do so now or miss out on a forgetten era of Metallica's music - whether a fan or not. Get it now, or if youve already got it, listen to it again now and spend five minuites contemplated how good it is."
Great song! But why buy this? Go get AJFA!

"One is an excellent song with a nice introduction. It starts out like a ballad. Slowly it builds up and at the end it becomes a very heavy song with an awesome guitar solo and a powerful ending. I didn't like Eye of the B. all that much but that is still a pretty good song. But why get this when you can go get And Justice For All (in my opinion, Metallica's best album) for just a couple more bucks (and a lot more cool songs including One, Eye... and the AWESOME Dyer's Eve!). This is highly reccommended but getting And Justice... would be a better way to spend your money."
On of the best imports metallica has made

"this is one of the best and coolest cds i have ever listened to. it starts off with metallica's second best song ever(right behind to live is to die). then it continues with bredfan on off the best songs metallica has ever covered. then the live versions of for whom the bell tolls and sanitarium which you cannot find on anyother cd excluding the boxed set. finally it has the demo of one which is incredible. it is really cool cause it was recorded on a 4 track and has no base in it. if you really like metallica you will buy this cd."
