The quintessential Metallica album now released as a beautiful box-set. If you want to own something to celebrate one of the greatest albums ever made, this is it!
Not cheap obviously, but with more extras than you could ever wish for it is certainly worth it. Includes numerous live recordings all of which capture the band in all their glory from back in the day.
If we can have Master of Puppets in the same format next please then that would be perfect!
