My dad bought this record when it came out as his first CD.. I'd be willing to buy this, with longbox, for the right price..

Metallica's peak, without doubt. They made thrash metal sophisticated with this album. It's so intricate. I even compare this to classical, not sure why. It moved them on from the punky thrash metal of the first two albums, which I also love. Next album "Justice" has "One" on it so deserves respect for that alone. Then the black album and oh dear...

This is probably one of Metallica's best albums. Hard, fast and generally angry. when I first got this album back in 86 , it blew me away. Tracks like Battery, Thing That should Not be, Disposable Heroes and Damage Inc, Rock. And who could go past Orion with Burtons kick ass bass work. Great album. 5/5
