EDITORS’ NOTES

Long considered one of the greatest metal albums of all time, Metallica’s 1986 opus was also their last with bassist Cliff Burton, who was killed just a few months after its release. This behemoth collection includes newly remastered versions of classic album cuts like the throttling “Battery,” the excoriating anti-war anthem “Disposable Heroes,” and the killer space-prog instrumental “Orion.” But it's the more than 100 additional live tracks, demos, and “work in progress” recordings—including raw early versions of Master of Puppets songs from guitarist James Hetfield’s personal riff tapes—that really put this one over the edge.

Yes this is one of the greatest albums of all time, but will you just please focus on what we all want and need??? Re-master And Justice For All and add some freaking bass to it Once And For All!!!!

The best Metallica album

It's better ordering the physical version then spend $100 on a digital copy

Why Give It 1-2 Stars?

Why complain that its $99.99? Look how much they're adding. Not only that it is not like you have to buy entire albums nowadays since everything is basically digital. If you already own the album quit complaining.
I hate the fact I came to look at the reviews and like the 75% of the first 15 were all negative due to the price. I wanted to know about how good the sound quality was. I'm willing to buy the live tracks.
In brief, this review is to hate on the people who only reviewed the album on the price for us rather than if the album is worth buying tracks from.
