iTunes Editors’ Notes

This is where the fights break out. After four studio albums of steady progress and experimentation, Metallica opted to streamline their attack to something more readily accessible to the masses. Producer Bob Rock was brought aboard to sharpen their sound, which had grown admittedly muddled on their previous release ...And Justice For All, and he also seems to have tutored the group towards writing songs that get to the point. "Enter Sandman" is the obvious case-in-point. Its head-on, no-nonsense approach and fail-safe chorus ("Exit light, enter night") guaranteed the group the radio and MTV play that often eluded them in the past. If anything, however, it's the refined moments — the haunting ballad "Nothing Else Matters," the contemplative "The Unforgiven — that actually extend the band's reach and are the album's highlights. Ironically, it's the standard Metallica riffage of "Of Wolf and Man" and the defensive "Don't Tread On Me" that sound as if the group is in danger of boxing themselves into the corner. It's a testament to their strong identity that this would be a problem, one most groups would rehearse their entire lives to have.

my all time favorite band and at a great album to double the excellence


One the the greatest albums ever!

Metallica were easily the best, most influential heavy metal band of the '80s and '90s. Responsible for bringing the genre back to Earth, the bandmates looked and talked like they were from the street, shunning the usual rock star games of metal musicians during the mid-'80s pop-metal renaissance. Metallica also expanded the limits of thrash, using speed and volume not for their own sake, but to enhance their intricately structured compositions. The release of 1983's Kill 'Em All marked the beginning...
