Audio DVD, Original recording remastered, May 1, 2001
Longtime fans may call this one a sellout but that is hardly the case. Instead, the group has increased the bottom end of their sound and keeps the riff-per-song limit down to about two. This may keep Metallica from alienating staunch metal-haters, but it is the quality of the songs - hits such as Enter Sandman and the ballad Nothing Else Matters, but also Holier Than Thou - that has made this their most successful (and best) album to date. Certified at 12 million units by the RIAA. (2/01)
Called "the Black Album" by many (due to its monochrome cover), Metallica marks the group's entrance into the mainstream, with shorter songs, simpler song structures, and slower tempos overall. That said, this is an excellent album, featuring some of the best songwriting Metallica has ever done. "Enter Sandman," "Wherever I May Roam," and "God That Failed," despite being slower and more groove-oriented than the band's earlier work, feature the same heavy riffs and heavier rhythms that have always been a feature of Metallica's music. The band goes introspective with "Unforgiven," and proves that they can write a ballad with "Nothing Else Matters," which succeeds better than one might expect. Overall, this is a high-energy album despite its laid-back approach, and is in many ways superior to the previous . . . And Justice for All, which was weakened by overly complicated song structures and mediocre production. -- Genevieve Williams

The album sounds awesome in 5.1, if you have the correct 5.1 set up and a good subwoofer, this album kicks, wait untill you hear Enter Sandman through 5 speakers, when it kicks in or Of Wolf and Man, the guitars sound alot heavier then the cd. An added bonus is a clip form the Classic Albums dvd... Read More

I think that if they see CD's as a threat to your or their faith, then that faith can't be very strong, can it? I think that spirituality shouldn't be focused on such petty things as what music people listen to, but rather spiritual merit; what actions people take and do for one another. I know... Read More
