Sound — 10
The sound on this album is friggin amazing. This is probably one of Metallica's heaviest and most ambitious albums ever made. The guitars on this album are amazing Kirk and James can really play guitar, and Kirk with the raging solos gotta love it. The drums are just plain kick-ass and the bass is good even though you cant really hear it.
Lyrics — 10
The lyrics on this album are really, really good. The lyrics really do speak out on this one. The thing that amazes me about the lyrics is how they plan it I mean they go talking about justice to what a man feels like when he is in a war. That is what I call good songwriting structure and these guys can really pull it off.
Overall Impression — 10
This album cannot compare to any other artist's. This is one of the best album's in rock and the heavy metal decade ever made. I do not hate anything about this album I like every single moment off it. And those who call themselves "Headbangers" get this album and listen to some true headbanging songs. So if this album were lost I would most definetely go out and buy it again. Get this album right now you will not regret it I am telling you you will get blown away with this.
