(2-LP set) 1991 hit release.
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.

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.

It is okay but this is definitely not thrash metal. Metallica should have stuck to their roots.Published 5 months ago by Bruiser
Heavy Metal is not something that comprises a huge percentage of my collection. In fact I do not own very much Metal at all, I am a little too old for that, I do have some Vintage... Read morePublished 16 months ago by spigomars
