My copy has some silibance problems here and there, and side 2 is louder than side 1. I recorded side 1 in audacity with the recording volume all the way up (no clipping and a decent amount of headroom) and same can't be said for side 2. I also agree with a couple reviews down there about lacking low end.

On my copy, Hit the lights, phantom lord, seek and destroy and metal militia i think were the ones with that silibance and distortion. And about the download card, it's 320 kbps mp3 ripped on a Mac somewhere and ripped at 16/48 (iTunes and has no embedded art work and the track number, year or genre. Only has the track number before the title in the id3 tags.

I believe what people mean when they say "Hit The Lights" sounds bad is there's noticeable clipping/distortion on that track for this release. I somehow missed it on my first playthrough but I hear it now. I'm glad I read these reviews first cuz I thought something was wrong with my equipment. It's only on "Hit The Lights" thankfully. Everything else sounds great. And this is a great sounding release. Everything is super clear and crisp, especially guitars.

Excellent Remaster, I've had the og version on cassette & cd as well as the version with Am i evil & blitzkrieg. This sounds just as good, and you also get a free download of the album from their website for whatever your digital needs may be. Vinyl up your ass is carved into the deadwax ;)

Very decent remaster. With that being said my only other exposure to this album is on cassette, which I think sounds like garbage, but adds to the thrash metal feeling. So this is a remarkably higher step.

I think this remaster sounds nice. Punchy drums, rich, cutting, guitar tone, nice stereo separation, crisp, clear sound, I was suprised by the clarity of this. Low end lacking a little bit but overall still sounds full and dynamic. Happy with it, super cheap too for a nice clean pressing from Pallas.

Decent remaster and repress, however the low end is lacking and is missing the punch to it, most noticeable on Pulling Teeth. However the guitars and drums sound really nice. It's also kinda quiet, but this is easily fixed by turning up the volume. I cleaned this pressing before playing and have a Shure M44G cartridge. My copy did not come with a download card.

I am impressed with this version, Hit the Lights does sound a bit off, but the rest of the album is very enjoyable

The sticker is wrong, according to discogs releases, it was first remastered in 1994 on that unofficial Russian CD, then it was remastered in 1995 by George George Marino At Sterling Sound, then again in 2006, 2010 (SHMCD). The 1995 remastered series sounds the best.

Are these 180 gram? My copy feels awfully heavy and thick.

I have been put off buying Metallica re-issues, from the reviews of all the blackened issues, but I took a chance on this. It sounds great, no issues whatsoever. Nice sound, nice poly lined sleeves, and fantastic music. I'm gonna pick up the 2016 Ride The Lightning next.
