This is not just one of the best metal albums of all time
on 12 April 2017
I've said it before and I'll say it again. This is not just one of the best metal albums of all time. It's one of the best albums of all time. Metallica have never bettered this one. If they helped to birth a genre then this was the petulant teenager that stood up and spit in the face of everything that went before. It re-defined Metallica as an unbeatable force. Bludgeoning full frontal assault from start to finish. They truly showed that a group of pretty horrible people could become much (much) greater than the sum of its parts. No other album comes close.. now if they'd only add a bonus disk of b-sides and live stuff.. oh.. and incase this isn't clear enough.. you need to own this album.
