Metallica's 'Creeping Death/Jump in the Fire' EP, combining two singles/EP's on one disk, is a nice little collectable for die-hard Metallica fans, although being difficult to find nowadays. it's not really worth the effort, especially since the bulk of the songs (or should that be "the most important ones") are more easily available elsewhere.

The title track is arguably one of the best tracks from the 'Ride the Lightning' album, and the two accompanying covers are good, but again, are easier to obtain on other releases, namely, the 1998 album 'Garage Inc.', which collects every cover Metallica had recorded up to that point along with new ones recorded specifically for that album. The two songs in question are 'Blitzkrieg', originally by the band Blitzkrieg (who?) and 'Am I Evil', by Diamond Head (who... ah, never mind), a song Metallica have covered so well and so often that it has more-or-less become their own.

Unfortunately it's the "second half" of this EP that ruins it for me, the 'Jump in the Fire' section, which consists of the aforementioned song and two live cuts.

Whilst I like the album 'Kill 'Em All', I don't consider 'Jump in the Fire' to be an overly memorable song, and the two "live tracks" (rumoured to be normal tracks with crowd noises dubbed in) sound awful by the standards of todays live albums, whether the dubbed-in crowd story is true or not.

Overall this is a cool addition to the collection if you love Metallica and look to own everything, but since this can be pretty tricky to find anyway, it's really not worth the effort.
