    The Title (Mic Drop): All Americans Should Own

    Regardless of your taste in music, your socio-economic status, your gender/race/education, et. al, anyone who is anyone can appreciate the licks that are laid down on this (Metallica's Self Titled) Album. To say this is their best album is a stretch (the bar is set very high for these guys) but it's the hidden gems (that didn't reach the Billboard) that make the "The Black Album", a must-have. Oh yeah, there's 'Enter Sandman', 'The Unforgiven', 'Sad But True', 'Wherever I May Roam'. I think the album is still in the Top 100 of the Billboard Top 200, nearly 30 years after it's release (in 1991). Just sayin'.

    25 Million Buyers Can't Be Wrong!

    This is the easiest Metallica CD to buy because they changed their approach and made some more radio-friendly music. It was the right album for them at the right time, as it jettisoned them into the mainstream pop culture. It probably was the reason that they survived Grunge, too. Why, then, did it take me over 25 years to buy this CD? I guess I was just waiting for the right time. I didn't want to be a bandwagon fan. Haha! By now, we've all heard almost every song on this disc, so there's not much to say. It's also sold 25 Million copies! (25,000,001 now that I bought mine.) I think that should about do it for this review. Now go bang your head somewhere!!

    While this was a strong album, Bob Rock ruined the band with this one. He meddled too much and poisoned the band's own methods which had worked well for the past 4 releases. Anyway, I only like the closet songs on here since radio killed all the popular ones for me that I can't stand to hear much ever. The God that Failed is likely the strongest tune on here to me, and Through the Never is well done too. The 5 that the radio killed need no mention, Of Wolf and Man makes little sense to me and just doesn't fit the rest of em. Sadly after this release, the band just chit the bed and hasn't ever recovered to me.

    "Metallica" or more commonly known as "The Black Album" is almost, on its own, a collection of the band's greatest "mainstream" hits. Yes, Metallica's other albums are incredible, and in the eyes of many, including myself, better than the Black Album. But, there is no bad track on this album. From start to finish, it is fantastic. This album represents why people used to buy an entire album, rather than just downloading two or three songs off of itunes, like many people do now. This is actually a copy to replace my original, which I have digitally, but the physical copy was ruined, so I bought it again.

    metallica does mid-tempo metal well

    Metallica always had a sense for mixing melody and distorted guitars, and their self-titled album showcases those talents -- only now in slower-tempo songs. The band's previous four albums are heralded by so-called hardcore fans as their best, but the black album fits perfectly into their top works of art. My friends and I used to listen to this album on tape when it came out in '91, and buying this on CD means it will hopefully not suffer the same fate as fragile cassettes can when they are not cared for properly.

    Most memorable Metallica release

    While it's argued that 'Master of Puppets' is the best album Metallica recorded, no one can argue that their self-titled album, commonly referred to as 'The Black Album', will be the release that they are remembered for. With mega hits like "Enter Sandman", "Wherever I May Roam", "Nothing Else Matters" and "The Unforgiven", this is an outstanding album in a long career of one of the most influential and popular metal bands. Such a great album with all songs very memorable and always fantastic.

    This is Metallica's best album! The physical CD that I bought at Best Buy has a digital glitch. When I try to download it to my iTunes, it won't transfer the last 5 songs. Tried several times. I went and bought the same CD at a store closer to home, and it all transferred just fine. Had to throw away my CD I bought at Best Buy. I live too far away to waste the gas to return a $5 CD.

    Metallica BLACK Album! PERIOD. This Album has gone down as the Greatest Metallica Album of their Career so far! And boy you will NOT be disappointed!! All they would have to do is add a few songs from each of their other Albums to this ENTIRE Album and it could be one of the best "Greatest HITS" Albums of ALL-TIME! You could not have a complete METAL-library without The Metallica BLACK ALBUM!

    Yea I said it. I love the first album, ride the lightening is probably one of the best heavy metal albums ever followed by master of puppets. But this, yes their most commercially explosive album is their best. From the music to the lyrics which lets face it is explosive. Don't ask yourself why this is their best selling album, just purchase it, sit down and enjoy the ride

    This album exemplifies metal. I first listened to it when I was a teenager, and my appreciation for it has only grown. I have no doubt that my children, their future children, their future children, etc will continue to listen to the songs on this album, and will keep on rocking!

    I bought the Metallic Cg for my husband - it would not be fair for me to comment however it was a Birthday gift for him from our grandchildren - he said he loved it and it is one of the best CD's Metallic has ever put out. As far as for me - I shop at Best Buy a lot and they are always helpful and for the most part I can usually find what I am looking for at Best Buy!

    I was never a Metallica fan growing up in the 80s, I loved hair bands. I recall a few songs from the album playing on mainstream radio and are catchy so I purchased it during the Christmas season. “Wherever I May Roam”, ”Enter Sandman” & “The Unforgiven” are the highlights. Still a decent album for the price.

    Best metallica ever! Had this black album stolen out of my miata 25 years ago. They brought all my cds they stole to a CD store, yes they had those back in the 90s. And the only one they didn't sell back was the black album! So happy to have it again!

    Enjoy listening to these legends. I’ve been to their concerts in AZ and really enjoyed the performance in Tucson at the Rodeo grounds. It was like the concerts of their greatest and most popular hits!! Thank you again. Good music while driving.

    THIS WAS A DISCOUNTED CD AND I LIKE TO LISTEN TO HEAVY METAL WHILE DRIVING. THE MUSIC BEHIND THE VOCALS WAS MEDIOCRE TO FAIR. THE VOCALS WERE PATHETIC. THEY MADE EVERY SONG SOUND THE SAME. WHAT AN AMATEUR BRAND OF HEAVY METAL. I DON'T EVEN THINK DRUGS OR ALCOHOL WOULD IMPROVE THE EXPERIENCE.

    What can one say about this album? If you're reading this, then you've either never heard of Metallica or didn't grow up in the 80s. If you like 80s metal, buy this. Before corporations own celebrities and musicians, they let them make a few albums that rock. This is one of Metallica's.

    Metallica Metallica or Metallica Black as it is also known is arguably their best album. Personally for me it is the album that started my love for Metallica. It is one of those CDs you can put on and listen to every single track considering there isn't a bad one in the bunch.

    I had to rebuild my Metallica collection after my car was stolen with all my cds in it...This CD still stands the test of time and reminds me why I got into this band in the first place. Heavy, strong, and I don't care what the "purists" say; I LIKE the more "mainstream" sound!

    This is probably the 5th copy of this cd that I have bought since it's release in '91. I either completely wore them out with scratches, or left it in a car that I sold, but keep coming back for more. It's an awesome album - every song rocks. Must get my mandatory dose of Metallica!!
