Pretty good, but disappointing at the same time.

When I picked this album up, i had already heard half of the songs on it, and I liked them. Songs like Enter Sandman, The God That Failed, Sad but True, Nothing Else Matters and The Unforgiven. The rest of the album isn't doing it for me, it just feels bad. And compared to the 4 albums that came before this,even 4 stars is a questionable rating.

A classic that gets better with every listen

Twelve tracks, all excellent. Starting with the classic Enter Sandman, this album has inner depth. It marks their arrival in the mainstream, but that's not a criticism. This album opened the band up to a much wider audience and is often the way into Metallica. Hardcore fans at the time were not so sure, but hey, it gets more people into the band. After Sandman comes Sad But True, closer to their roots, an epic metal track. There are some slower tracks, such as The Unforgiven and Nothing Else Matters, gives the listener a bit of a rest between thrashes. If this is your thing then work backwards through their earlier albums, a favourite of mine is Ride The Lightening. Just because they went mainstream with Metallica/Black Album doesn't mean it's not an epic album which has stood the test of time. It was released 25 years ago! That makes me old.

Frankly everyone should own a copy of this album, especially on vinyl!
