Product Description

Product Description

(2-LP set) 1991 hit release.

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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!

EDIT: March 14th 2012

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.

People who are not familiar with Metallica may really like this record. But those who have listened to Metallica since 'Kill Em All' may very well find themselves disappointed. Their 2nd record 'Ride the Lightning' was a timeless masterpiece to be enjoyed again and again. This 5th record is simply tragic. Gone is the musical intensity and the killer vocals seen on earlier records. I am not so uptight that I'll deny that this record is a decent spare hour passer, but to call this one of Metallica's best efforts (to put it in civil language) is absurd. IT SAYS SOMETHING WHEN THE PEOPLE WHO LIKE THE ALBUM ARE NOT MADE UP OF PEOPLE WHO ALWAYS LIKED THE GROUP, AND THE PEOPLE WHO ALWAYS LIKED THE GROUP ARE TRULY LET DOWN! I find it interesting that people try to excuse sell out records by saying that the group has matured. This is absurd. A compromise of what they were good at for the sake of higher financial gain is the definition of selling out. William Shakespeare started out with mediocre plays like "Titus Andronicus." When his writing matured, he gave us the frighteningly intense masterpieces of "Julius Caesar," "Macbeth," "Hamlet," and "King Lear." Charles Dickens' early "Old Curiosity Shop" has some grand elements like the really likable villain Daniel Quilp and the eccentric but benevolent Dick Swiveller. But Dickens' writing matured to offer us the frighteningly intense "Our Mutual Friend." Going back to heavy metal, King Diamond started out with the o.k. "Melissa." But his writing got more frightening, and his musical efforts got more intense, and he started using more musical resources. Just listen to his later efforts "Them," "Conspiracy," "Abigail," and "In the Shadows.Read more ›

That's right. Commerical isn't ALWAYS synonymous with crappy. The Black Album spawned (count 'em) THREE Top 40 hits: "Enter Sandman", "Nothing Else Matters", and my favorite song on the album, "The Unforgiven". "Enter Sandman" has one of the best opening riffs in all of rock music, in the same vein as Deep Purple's "Smoke on the Water". Radio staples "Sad But True" (heavy) and "Wherever I May Roam" (has a Middle East feel to it) are both awesome tracks, while the older thrashier Metallica fans will surely enjoy "Don't Tread on Me", "Through the Never", and "Struggle Within". This album displays some of the finest songwriting ever to come out of James Hetfield. As usual, Kirk's solos are masterful, and thanks to Bob Rock's excellent production, Jason's basslines are clearly audible (esp. on "My Friend of Misery")! Even if you are not a Metallica or heavy metal fan, this CD should still find a home in your collection. Indeed, Metallica changed its sound, but the songs are still of high quality, unlike their subsequent albums :( And for the record, this CD is in every single way (songwriting, musicianship, production) superior to Nirvana's Nevermind.

This album marks the departure of former Metallica producer Flemming Rasmussen. The 'new' producer, Bob Rock (best-known for his work with bands like Def Leppard and Motley Crue), gives Metallica the most incredible sound. Huge tones, to say the least, and the bass guitar is clearly audible for once (something frequently obscured in their previous efforts by walls of multi-tracked tenor guitars). Unfortunately, the actual song material here is very pop/rock oriented (could also be a manifestation of the producer, perhaps). Compared to their incredible and very influential off-time riffing of the past (Master Of Puppets-era), this is an admittedly weak set. The radio hit "Enter Sandman" is a good example of how their music has been squashed into mostly three-minute radio spots. The even-more-lackluster "Load", which followed this album, guaranteed Metallica literally tons of hate mail from people who had loved their early work. I have this gut feeling that this album's nomme-de-guerre "The Black Album", will probably place it in the future annals' "Classic Rock Albums Of All Time" alongside the Beatles' "White Album" and Primus' "Brown Album". What is strange to me is that while both of the latter albums were obviously in-joke nose-thumbing at popular excess, the "Black Album" seems to be a celebration of it. And it embarrases me to say, if you're a rock fan who had never heard any of Metallica's music, I would actually recommend this as a good starting place, because so many of the songs are really catchy. But is it a good representation of Metallica's musical prowess and legendary influence? A resounding "no".
