"Metallica: Back to the Front features photos of original art and lyrical ideas, rare pictures (including one of the band in their bath robes and bare feet where you can see “eight Metallica tootsies”), interviews with every member of the band along with producer Flemming Rasmussen as well as fans."
"As Ulrich reveals, the book features photos, original art, ideas for lyrics, and interviews with the band, producer Flemming Rasmussen and fans. Though the book is actually 276 pages—not 9,000, as Ulrich says—it’s packed with information vital to fans who have a deep appreciation for the album and Metallica."

I'm not sure why I've danced around buying this book for so long but I'm glad I finally did. The insights, rare/never seen pictures and the oral history of MOP from inception to Cliff's final gig is second to none. There are alot of wanna be Metallica books out there and this destroys them all. If you are on the fence like be get off of the fence and get it!
There’s almost no mention of Mustaine, strangely, even in the chapter condensing the band’s entire career. I understand this in the rest of the book, as it’s specifically about the Master album and tour, but that oversight in the career synopsis was a bump.
Excellent design and production.

This is a wonderful book to go along with a truly classic album and I feel blessed to own a copy.
-Steven A. McKay, author of The Druid
Loads of great photos and packed with interesting quotes and facts.
Recommended for all Metallica fans.
Reign in Blood could do with the same treatment!
