Metallica revolutionized the heavy metal genre with their musicianship, lyrical aggression and pulverising instrumentals but "...And Justice For All', with its thin, bass-light mix, sterile production and broadened sonic range, saw them touch on socially conscious themes for the first time and branch out from the ambience and song form of their previous albums. In light of the muted response to Metallica's brief foray into experimentation, the group changed tack drastically, choosing to abandon the abrasiveness and progressive elements of their sound without attenuating their predilection for heavy arpeggios, expressive range and harmonized leads. Metallica felt the need to change direction if they were to appeal to the masses, and bolstered by stripped-down, slower tempo singles such as "Enter Sandman", "Sad But True" and "Nothing Else Matters", they finally achieved the crossover success their more sophisticated speed and thrash metal contemporaries could only dream of. Metallica's calculated goal for commercial success may have alienated some of their purist fans, but it did open up their music to a wider audience and perhaps introduce others wholly unfamiliar with metal to the genre at large, expanding the musical horizons of many uninitiated individuals in the process. It remains a perfect entry point for anyone unenlightened with all things heavy metal.

"Metallica" was recorded across eight months and remixed three times, and intricately structured result boasts an immediate and refined production aided by technical stalwart Bob Rock's penchant for varnishing the caustic, bone-smashing aspects of hard rock sans diminishment of power or intensity. Rock's production style is renowned for accentuating melody and mellifluence, albeit with defined instrumentation and heightened rhythmic qualities and syncopation, as evidenced in the sweeping ballads "Unforgiven" and "Nothing Else Matters", both of which underscore harmony-driven string sections rather than slashing guitars. By deviating from the lacking low end of their previous albums, adhering to more traditional song structures and removing the complicated, progressive elements from their sound, Metallica were accepted with open arms into the mainstream, and although the band would struggle to regain the balance of creativity and viability employed on this album, they did grow outwards rather than dutifully conform to the conventions of the metal fraternity. Crunchy, crisp and crushing monster riffs are present and correct for the majority of the album, but the streamlining and diversification of the classic fast tempo thrash style, instead of being celebrated by fans, is now viewed as the bridge between the rough yet melodic era of "Ride the Lightning" and "Master of Puppets" and the entirely devoid of ingenuity but still listenable "Load/Reload" years that followed. "Metallica" branded the California mavericks as one of the few thrash metal acts to acquire popularity on a grand scale, becoming their best-selling record; even the album's indistinct, obscure black cover art failed to thwart its marketability to the non-metal demographic.

* I refer any audiophiles to the DVD Audio format as in my opinion it appears to be the best digital version on the market with its enveloping 5.1 surround mix enhancing the sound to such an extent that it is akin to listening to the album anew. In my considered opinion, the album is a different sonic beast to "Ride the Lightning" and "Master of Puppets", therefore the added compression and plethoric remix enhances the layered production without sacrificing that much in the way of instrument separation and dynamics.

I see people complaining about this boxset but honestly I think it's great. The box is cool, the sound quality is excellent, they are packaged like mini LPs... I see this on Ebay for $35 all the time (thats what I paid for mine) and it's a fantastic deal! Especially for anyone that wants the Essential Metallica (regardless of what you think about Load, Reload, and St. Anger)Also really cool if you are into checking out original recordings against the remasters they are putting out, because all of these are exactly all the ones they are re-releasing.
It would be ok if all discs playerd ok, I got this box set and so far Death Magnetic sticks on tracks 4 and Load skips during the last track. I still have to play Garage Inc. and S&M, will have to buy the official versions to put in the box.
I just received this box set, and although the printing and the discs may not be great quality, the quality of the music on the discs is 99.99% exactly the same as the official releases (they're CD quality). I verified this with Spek by comparing a 16 bit WAV rip from both a bootleg disc and an official release disc. There are some minuscule differences in random spotty noise mostly in the 20-22 kHz range, but these differences cannot be heard and is most likely caused by the laser from my disc reader, not the bootleg disc itself. In layman's terms, the music on the discs sound excellent. For $50, this box set is an excellent deal. Looks nice on my CD shelf, too. Hopefully this helps anyone who wanted to know what the quality of the music on the discs were like.
