The original black album. Metallica's self-titled album from '91, and the one with all their biggest hits finally gets a proper sounding reissue, courtesy of their own Blackened Recordings imprint. Even if you didn't watch Headbanger's Ball, you should know "The Unforgiven," Nothing Else Matters," and "Wherever I May Roam," and of course, "Enter Sandman." Obviously this was the one with the cross-over appeal for Metallica and marked a noticeable change from the thrash metal sound of their previous work, to a less harsh, more melodic form of metal.
