After listening to both tracks twice I conclude that I like neither more than the other. Observations: I was drawn more to the motivic arpeggios that
lead Cliffs track. However, as the track progresses, the music lost me and I began to find the heavy distortion distracting. I like the tone and feel
of Geezer's solo at the the beginning of the Sabbath track, but the content - largely pentatonic noodling - isn't inspiring to me personally. Not bad
by any means. Thanks for posting in music! Even though I'm not particularly a heavy metal fan, it's fine playing by both.
IMO Burton's ability shines through best in Metallica's instrumentals more so with Orion. Burton had a formal education in Music at Berkeley and had
an ability to compose works.
Three main parts of the song: the heavy beginning, the spacey bass-led interlude, and the ending recapitulation that brings back the heaviness. The
song features four solos: the first one by Kirk Hammett, the second by Hetfield, the third, a bass solo by Cliff Burton shortly after his bass
interlude, and the last by Hammett again.
