          Can anyone explain why this pressing is sold for so much? I fortunately got it free from a family friend but I'm just curious

            If you own this copy (hell, even if you don't), you owe it to yourself to own an 80's press of this album on CD as well. It sounds much more abrasive (in a good way) and intense, I was really surprised pleased when hearing and comparing to this record. I think I may actually prefer the CD, lol.

              This is the version of the number one best metal album of all time! Hard to find a good version of the album these days... to be honest, you have to crank this album to really feel everything. Very spot on master.

                Amazing press -- the biggest difference off the bat is that the vinyl is not as wet as the digital/CD version. It appears that they mask the compression with some reverb to give it more of a room sound. This version is clean, crisp, and unrelentingly aggressive. A must have for the biggest Met fans.

                  Best Metallica album. I have a vinyl copy that's unopened. It says Elektra/Asylum. Not sure how to distinguish Allied Press from Specialty press version.

                    Master of Puppets is hands down the most important metal album of the 80s. It helped transition Metallica from underground heroes to world giants, but also brought Thrash Metal to the mainstream with it.

                      Absolutely amazing press. I got this for a steal too.
