The Japanese EP release of Frantic, the second single from Metallica's 2003 album, St. Anger, features the album mix plus four live tracks. The songs were recorded during the band's U.K. tour and are all versions of songs from classic Metallica albums. "Blackened" and "Harvester of Sorrow" are from ...And Justice for All, "Welcome Home (Sanitarium)" is from Master of Puppets, and "No Remorse" is from Kill 'Em All. If you one of the fans who thought the band sounded great on St. Anger but was lacking in the song department, this disc is tailor-made for you. It is also good for new fans to find out more about the august history of the group.
