Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Called "the Black Album" by many (due to its monochrome cover), Metallica marks the group's entrance into the mainstream, with shorter songs, simpler song structures and slower tempos overall. That said, this is an excellent album, featuring some of the best songwriting Metallica has ever done. "Enter Sandman", "Wherever I May Roam" and "God That Failed", despite being slower and more groove-oriented than the band's earlier work, feature the same heavy riffs and heavier rhythms that have always been a feature of Metallica's music. The band goes introspective with "Unforgiven" and proves that they can write a ballad with "Nothing Else Matters", which succeeds better than one might expect. Overall, this is a high-energy album despite its laid-back approach and is in many ways superior to the previous ... And Justice for All, which was weakened by overly complicated song structures and mediocre production. --Genevieve Williams

5.0 out of 5 stars An instant classic Aug. 7 2004
By Steven
Format:Audio CD
Almost perfect. This isnt' the metallica i used to know...but dammit i'm lovin it. NO. THis album is NOT thrash metal. NO this album is not all really upbeat. NO this album is not how metallica used to play. BUT this is an amazing album...all the songs are AWESOME. It is truly inspiring.
1)Enter Sandman - used to be a good song...but now it is so overrated and overplayed. It gets tiring! cool solo! - 7.5/10
2)Sad But True - Really cool song...i like the heavy guitar riff. The lyrics are strong...overall strong song. - 9.5/10
3)Holier than thou - I love this song. One of my favs on the album. Really up-beat, great lyrics (look harder). I love the bass in this song. - 10/10
4)THE UNFORGIVEN - INCREDIBLE SONG!!! Slow...moving...strong lyrics...great guitar solo. THe guitar solo in this song was improvised...that just goes to show how great kirk is. this song is incredible...much better than the 2nd one. 10/10
5)wherever i may roam - cool song. This song is done on some weird bass...10 or 12 string. I really like this song. It's underrated. - 10/10
6)Don't Tread on ME - Cool song...my least fav on the album. but still great. I don't much like the guitar solo. Although the drummin is bang on...and james vocals are intimidating...8.5/10
7)Through The Never - hahaha really cool song. I love the part in the middle: "...on through the never we must gooo..." It kicks ass :) 10/10
8)Nothing Else Matters - aaah. Nothin else matters. Great song. The lyrical masterpiece, the guitar greatness...this song is amazing. It's slow, with a heavy ending (of course a guitar solo). One of my favorites. - 10/10
9)Of WOlf and Man - cool song...cool lyrics...cool drumbeat...just overall cool song. 9/10
10)The God That Failed - Wicked bass intro.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vinyl review of the 2014 Blackened Re-Issue Aug. 31 2014
Format:LP Record
This review is about the vinyl 2014 re-issue on the Blackened Metallica label since this album does not require any further presentation.

Overall, the sound quality is very good, but lacks a little bit of punch. The presentation could have been better as this only comes with the original paper insert, while the inner sleve is a cheap paper sleve. And the vinyl do not appear to be 180gr. A little bit of surface noise cause by what appear to be not very deep grooves, but considering this is a metal album, no big issue here.

Recommended...considering the price (24$).

5.0 out of 5 stars "Exit Light,Enter Night" Nov. 24 2007
By Tommy Skylar TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
In 1991 Metalica releases a self-titled album,"Metallica" or the black album as some fans like to call it and it was a major commercial succes,getting plenty of air time on the radio stations and is one of the best selling album of not only Metallica's career but of all time as well.Its easy to see why,the songs lyrically are the best they have ever done,this album all have slower tempos and they are shorter than usual for the band.All of wich gave Metallica tremendous amounts of succes,some say this is when they sold-out,to me they hadn't sold out yet no because the music on the album even if it is not the Metallica we had grown used to,was still very good.They still rocked at this point,their attitude was the same as before,the songs were great and they still had their long hair!The black album is called that name because the print that read "Metallica" did not come out well on the front and the back of the album,that is quite an interresting fact about this album.

The musical direction they took on this album was different than what they did previously,gone is the trash metal era,and in comes the mainstream.The musical change can be hear clearly,the songs are notably shorter and seem slower than on their previous releases.Now that doesn't mean the album is no good,actually because of that more and more people started listening to them.Some songs really stand out from this album and some songs can be considered amongst the best Metallica have ever done like "Sad But True" a slow,heavy song that is terrific or the superb ballad "The Unforgiven" wich is probably the lyrically best song ever for the band.Also other notable songs are "Wherever I May Roam" and "Of Wolf And Man" wich are favourites here.

5.0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTELY THE BEST HEAVY METAL ALBUM IN THE 90S July 10 2006
By Vader
Format:Audio CD
I've heard all the arguments that Megadeth's Countdown to Extinction and Skid Row's Slave to the Grind were the best metal albums in the 90s and for the most part, those two albums were brilliant. There is one metal album that stands alone in the 90s as the best metal album. Metallica's self-titled album is the best album. Metallica's Black Album is a masterpiece. From the classic ballad "Nothing Else Matters" to the fast-paced "Wherever I May Roam", "Enter Sandman" and "The Unforgiven". Metallica delivered the goods in the 90s and this album blows Motley Crue's self-titled album in 1994 out of the water. Forget Nirvana's Nevermind. Forget Alice in Chains. Metallica's Black album and the innovative set Use Your Illusion I and II from Guns N' Roses rank as the best metal albums in the 90s. Metallica finally achieved a #1 album with the BLack album and a #1 single in Canada with Enter Sandman.

METALLICA'S BLACK ALBUM IS A MASTERPIECE.

Dave Mustaine will have to settle for second place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great heavy album!
This is a great melody rich album. The awsome guitar duo and funky punky lyrics are a testament to what Metallica is about as a group.
