Sound — 10
This is an old CD! It was made in the late '70s! The sound is somewhat low quality, so you cant hear the vocals sometime. But the guitars play catchy riffs, and there is a nice bass solo with a dab of distortion, it sounds great. This CD is exelent, you can tell that this is Metallica's roots!

James hetfield is a unique singer, and a decent guitar player. Like I said, since this CD is so old, you can tell the recording technology wasn't as great as it is today, and you can't hear James's voice at sometimes becuase it is drowned out by the guitar etc, the lyrics are basically the same thing over and over. In Jump In The Fire it goes " So come on, jump in the fire!" over and over. It gets kind of annoying but hey, I like it.
Overall Impression — 10
This is a great CD, one of Metallica's finest, I do believe because Dave Mustaine helped produce it. I'd think this would be number 2 on my favorites from Metallica, which would be ...And Justice For All, Kill 'Em All, Master Of Puppets. I love this album, I love the fact that there is a real bass solo with distortion, you don't hear alot of that today (R.I.P. Cliff). If this CD where stolen or lost, I would buy another copy immediately. Buy this CD, you will love it!
