Since their inception in 1981, Metallica have gone from an underground heavy-metal band to one of the most successful acts in the world, with an intensely loyal if not rabid fanbase. Their relevance is undeniable as evidenced by their ability to sell out stadiums and arenas worldwide while continuing to sell millions of albums with each release -- a feat no other band in history has sustained ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime 21 Sep 2007
Format:Audio CD
Wow, this was the album that got me into Metallica. Often fairly simple but it works on a primal level. Enter Sandman is legendary, I need not say more.
Sad but true, simple, a repetitive beat and easy to pick up lyrics.
Holier than though picks up the pace a little, not the best here but a good song nonetheless.
Unforgiven. Classic.
Wherever I may roam. brooding and menacing. great stuff. slow versus building up to a powerful chorus.
Don't tread on me is a defiant track which thunders along.
Through the never. Again speeds along, before slowing for Hetfields vocals which he spits out with his usual ferocity. Not the greatest metallica track.
Nothing else matters. Classic rock ballad. Emotive guitar works, sedate drumming and genuinly good vocals that show hetfield isn't just a grunter.
Of wolf and men, comes thindering in after and states in no uncertain terms that metallica havent gone soft. The guitar riff is full of power and is unforgettable.
God that Failed, enters with drum and bass before guitars echo in building to a typically metallica riff.
my friend misery, begins with a haunting guitar, that is joined by the rest of the band soon after. Hetfields vocals are a little more subdued here, giving a potent effect.
struggle within, closes the album, beginning with a marching drum beat, before kicking into very fast vocals for the verses. Possibly the weakest track present.

This review seems almost a pointless exercise as a) everyone probably owns this and b) most people say this is Metallicas finest work. Well I disagree with the latter reason. I love this album and gave it a truly deserved 5 (probably be a 9/10 if that was an option) but that is listening to it on its own merits, ie being adult about it. Listening in a little more childish manner this would be rated as a Metallica album and therefore compared to their other work. This album is far superior to St Anger, but then so was Take That's last effort I imagine. It is the best of the "new" more abbreviated Metallica which includes Load and Reload but it pales somewhat next to the previous 4 outings, especially master of Puppets which has to be the pinnacle for the band musically if not commercially. This album brought Metallica into the mainstream and found them lots of new fans but I will always remember this as the beginning of the end for the band. One reviewer compares this to Back in Black, I agree, that album is also excellent but not the bands (AC/DC) finest and also the start of something new and not altogether wonderful!

By Mr. D. A. Cure VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
They're all here - Sad But True, Unforgiven, Wherever I May Roam, Nothing Else Matters, and of course Sandman. Its good - in fact its great, but in my humble view ...And Justice for All was their finest hour, so it doesn't quite match that album, and by this stage they'd lost their speed and technicality. Having said that, this is one of those seminal albums that will stand the test of time as a classic like Nevermind, Appetite for Destruction, 4 Symbols, and Dark Side of the Moon. My personal favourite is Don't Tread on Me, which sums up their essence in its harmonised lead riff, and strong Hetfield Chorus. Often cited for its great production, it features a far more standardised production than its predecessors, which gives it a bigger sound, but I guess this was a reaction to the unfair criticism over the lack of reverb on Justice. This is a great album that any fan of guitar-based music should own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Metallica: The Black Album 1 Dec 2003
By Tyrone
Format:Audio CD
A brilliant album for this great metal band. This is one of those albums that you can listen to all the way through without stopping. Every song on this album is great but these are my faves.
Enter sandman: Spooky tune, perfect lyrics, sweet intro, and one of the greatest guitar solos in the history of metal.
The Unforgiven: Slower than what were used to, but thats not a bad thing. This is one of the most beatiful rock songs ever.
Nothing else matters: Slow and melodic. a beautiful piece of music. Even though the song is slow the band still manages to get a guitar solo in the song.
The struggle within: Old school, fast paced metal. classic Metallica, with a wicked intro.
Sad but true: Heavy with wicked lyrics, what more can I say?
Wherever I may roam: A cool tune and sweet lyrics and a somewhat egyptianized intro which is weird, but it suits the song good. So in short, a wicked song.
The Black album is the perfect album for Rock fans.
If you like this album you should check out "Master of Puppets"

5.0 out of 5 stars Off to never never land 7 Feb 2007
Format:DVD Audio
The music on the album is obviously brilliant, I think we are all agreed on that.

When I got this album I first listened to it in 5.1 which was fantastic.

Then I played it through my DVD-A player. WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! This album is mixed so well. On the first track Enter Sandman the difference between the 5.1 mix and the DVD-A is very different. The DVD-A mix is more complex with more layers of vocals (The line " Off to never never land" is whispered out of the back speakers instead of being sung through the front)and more phat guitar riffs coming out of the rear speakers. The sound is so full and crisp.

This album is worth buying a DVD-A player for.
