To me this is Metallica's best sound. The drums, bass, guitars and vocals are mixed well and not over produced like most Metallica records. This cleaner production gives it an energetic performance that has not been reproduced on any other record by Metallica. When Bob Rock stated that what Metallica does has not been captured in the studio I think of this record and I know he does not know or understand thrash metal at all.

I must have bought 20 or more of the EP through the years 87-89 from bringing the cassette with me and playing it at every party and place I could. Would play so much the old cassette issue would start happening from over use and rewinding and what not the songs would start sounding slow and stretched out. lol So for $6 I'd just replace and repeat over and over again. Luckily I still have 1 working Cassette the CD & LP in my collection. Amazingly the Cassette & L.P are the originals not sure if the CD is I know it's Mercury label not Electra like the LP and Cassette.

Very disappointed that people are paying more than $5.98 for these.

I just found a copy of the original vinyl version marked ELEKTRA 9 60757-1 at my local record shop for $40. I bought it and as soon as I got home I was able to really examine it because it was on display up behind the counter in the store and as soon as I saw it there I had the salesman hurry and grab it for me before either someone else got to it or before i shit my pants, luckily neither of these things happened. Anyway, after I got home I took it out of the outer sleeve and noticed the LP jacket/sleeve are in such beautiful condition it's like I bought it brand new from 1987! Then I took the record out and to my amazement it was like a brand new record! This thing has either only been played a couple times or not at all, I can't believe how amazing the condition is! There's not one mark on the sleeve or on the record anywhere. You never know what you may find so always keep your eyes out for a piece of treasure!

They're reissuing and most likely remastering this EP in April 2018.

I saw a sealed copy in my local store. The "$5.98 -- DO NOT PAY MORE!!" sticker on the shrink was partly covered by an "Original pressing - mint, sealed - $75" sticker. Truly we are honored guests at the funeral of irony.
