I compared the sound from the Blackened Recordings Genuine CD and a fake CD from an old vertigo version and the sound from the Blackened Recordings Genuine CD sounds remastered

I feel that if Metallica didn't focus on trying to fill a cd space and do what they did with Kill 'Em All and Ride the Lightning, this could have been a great album overall. But, it's focus goes EVERYWHERE. It's blues, it's rock, it's metal, it's country, it's alternative, it's southern rock, it's just all over. This album has some good tracks, and I'll even enjoy the entire album, but some tracks should have been cut. This could have been one of those releases where they have a main release, and then another disc with the filler songs or B-Sides, that way the entire album score wouldn't hurt.
