    Excellent sound quality...

    Quality pressing...quiet in lead-in, lead-out and in between tracks. I see others complaining about skipping, but I've had zero problems...I also clean all my vinyl before it's first play. Even factory fresh pressings can have some kind of contaminate in the groove. Played on a Kenwood KD-5070 with a Shure M97xe cartridge with Jico stylus upgrade...tracking force 1.5 grams.

    What can I say about this album that hasn’t already been said? Touted as the best selling album of the last 25 years...and for good reason. Not a wasted note. This vinyl issue has excellent sound and clarity, and will provide many years of use (proper care provided, of course). Worth every penny! \m/

    Seems like a long time coming, but the return of vinyl explains why I hung on to my collection and never sold my turntable. To listen to brand new vinyl, is nothing short of awesome. Vinyl is not as portable and not as convenient as digitally stored music, but the tone quality can't be beat! If you like Metallica, this one is a must.

    I've recently started getting into vinyl because the sound difference between it and digital is very noticeable to my ears. This classic Metallica album sounds amazing. The drums sound big and the riffs sound warm. The overall sound is great!

    This is a great cd, but the album was terrible. Like others have said, the albums skip like crazy. It's annoying to try to listen to it when it skips as much as it does. It doesn't seem like there is a single song that isn't at least somewhat affected by skipping. Sides 2 and 3 are probably the worst, but the whole collection is pretty bad.

    Skips

    I received this album as a Late Christmas gift. It is one of my favorite bands. We opened up right away and tried listening to the album and it skipped bad. I returned it immediately and was refunded. We went and read the reviews and decided we would try the album again. In the first 30 secs it started skipping.

    I remember when this album first came out. People said Metallica sold out. Well, they did. Sold out in every music store and concert venue around the world. This is possibly the greatest metal album of all time. And the sound on vinyl is just amazing. Having this in your vinyl collection is a must.

    I'm glad I bought this on vinyl after years of just hearing it various other ways. This is a blast to hear on vinyl, I swear it is like a new album. I'm hearing parts of the song I never heard before. Plus this album makes a great addition to any collection.

    The first Vinyl of this album was skipping all over. The song Unforgiven sounded great but was skipping everywhere. I have Vinyl over 30 years old that don't skip like this. Calling customer service and getting a replacement. I'm hoping the replacement works perfectly.

    I read the other review but didn't believe new vinyl would skip. I had the same experience as my unforgivin track jumps all over the place. I have a $700 direct drive turntable with a $200 cartridge and diamond needle. So frustrating!

    Everything was perfect as it always is at Best Buy. From the package to the content everything was like expected and the people that work there are always polite. That is why I love shopping at Best Buy.

    Very pleased with the alubum. Gave to my husband as a gift along with a record player. My husband is very happy listening to his jams loudly, I on the other hand need to purchase some ear plugs! Ha!

    sounds great on my new turntable. best comparison is LED and regular old light bulbs. The old old bulbs were warm light the new LED is white and cold. Vinyl is warm and CD is cold

    Metallica is one of the greatest rock bands of all time. If you know this album you know what you're getting. If you don't know it, then you're in for a treat.
