Warner Music should recall this album and send out new copies of the "Nothing Else Matters" Vinyl.
Like the other reviews, the S's sound terrible, like Zzzzzzzz, pure distortion.
I raised my stylus when I heard the first Chorus and changed to another song I was that disappointed. I nearly cried as I love this song.
I have no complaints with any of the other tracks, they sound incredible and powerful, as they should.
Please Warner make this right!

Okay, have I learned a LOT about cartridges and such over the last month. so I went out and bought a used Benz Micro Glider MOMC cartridge that was in pristine condition.
I immediately tried out "Nothing Else Matters" again after installing it, and I was SHOCKED. The song sounds PERFECT. No sibilance to speak of, PERIOD. (yes the distorted 'ssssss' have a name)
Verdict: "Nothing Else Matters" requires a good cartridge to play properly, as it demands much more than what cheap cartridges can provide....
I'm happy. :-) 5 Stars.
