    "Can you believe it's been almost thirty years since its original release? Neither can we! Then off we went to hit the road for a massive 300+ show tour, and the 'TALLICA experience went to a whole new level. To celebrate this milestone, we had to go all out with a wide variety of configurations for all your listening pleasure, including 180-gram double vinyl LP, standard CD and 3CD expanded edition, and digital (including high-def versions).

    "There's also the ultimate release for die-hard fans: a Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set containing over 24 hours of music including the album remastered on 180-gram 2LP, a picture disc, three live LPs, 14 CDs (containing rough mixes, demos, interviews, and live shows), 6 DVDs (containing outtakes, behind the scenes, official videos, and live shows), a 120-page hardcover book, four different tour laminates, three unique lithos, three guitar picks, a Metallica lanyard, a folder with lyric sheets, and a download card.

    "But wait… of course there's more! In addition to the reissue of The Black Album, we're also pretty pumped about the release of The Metallica Blacklist which features an unprecedented 50+ artists spanning an unbelievably vast range of genres, generations, continents, and more, each contributing a unique interpretation of their favorite Black Album cut.









    ​​​​​​​I havent listen to it in some time, but it's my impression or the Bass is louder now? Also I'm feeling this "tubular" effect that I dont recall being there.

        Did we really need this? Metallica is just a finely tuned money removal machine now.

            This sounds so bizarre I can't help but feel morbidly curious.

              Yeah you got that right. This just feels like a very thinly veiled cash grab. Just like everything else they have done for the last 30 years. But hey Lars needs another piece of fine art so who am I to judge.

                  I quit at 3 minutes, but in those 3 minutes I didn't see a single metal band or musician. But hey they have Darius Rucker so yay.

                    Yeah, I love how the list of people covering them is just designed to garner as much publicity as possible and doesn't involve any "metal" or "metal adjacent" artists other than Ghost and The Hu. It's just designed to generate as many headlines as possible on sites that normally wouldn't give Metallica coverage.

                    MILEY CYRUS AND THE CHICK WHO SMASHED HER GUITAR ON SNL

                    THAT ONE DUDE WHO RAPS

                    A CANADIAN RNB SINGER

                    CARDI B

                    BEN SHAPIRO COVERING CARDI B COVERING METALLICA

                    A HIPSTER ACOUSTIC GROUP THAT IS SIGNED TO THE STARBUCKS HOUSE LABEL

                    SOMEONE MORE FAMOUS FOR STREAMING VIDEO GAMES

                    REGIS PHILBIN (R.I.P)

                    THE CAST OF FRIENDS DOING A SLAM POETRY COVER OF SAD BUT TRUE

                    THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA

                    STEVEN SEAGAL'S DOUBLE TROUBLE ESQUE BLUES BAND

                    Just kidding about that last one of course. I would pay good money to hear Steven Seagal's blues band cover Metallica. WAY OF THE SHADOW WOLVES BRO.

                      While I generally agree with you, the Lightning and Puppets remasters are both good. Justice is what I expected with Lars involved.

                        To be fair, I haven't listened to either of those

                          Yeah, but on the other hand, I am pretty pumped to hear that The Hu cover.

                            They should've gotten Bon Jovi to do a full rerecording, since they were the inspiration for it.

                              If I think of one album that never in a million years would need a remaster, this would be it.

                              Then I listened to the youtube link and all that lush 80's/90's reverb is gone from the drums. Nah, the original is still where it's at. There's a reason it's such a classic.

                                This. Completely this.

                                The original is one of the best-sounding heavy rock albums ever made, if not the absolute best. It's the gold standard for hard rock/metal production, even if the music itself is dumbed down compared to their previous albums.

                                Remastering was intended to remedy LP-era releases that were sometimes converted into harsh-sounding CDs in the '80s or mastered from inferior tape copies, not to take great-sounding albums and turn them into garbage.

                                The worst offender might be Queensryche's Empire. Whatever you think of the music, the production was stellar and the original CD is still an aural treat. The remaster is so amazingly brickwalled and bad. Horrible.

                                  Agreed 100%. Stop remastering early 90s records, they sounded better then than the remasters. Megadeth's Youthanasia is another one. Awesome sounding album that loses all its polish with the remaster.

                                    Yeah, this didn't need to be done. I was only interested in the Justice remaster as I rather naïvely thought they'd put the bass tracks back on it. This is just a pointless cash grab.

                                      I love this album and to me, it's their best sounding album, production wise. Saw them live on this tour, too.

                                          Despite a predictably boring and autotuned Miley Cyrus vocal performance, the production and visuals of this are actually pretty awesome. And the list of collaborators is true (Elton John, Yo-Yo Ma, Robert Trujillo, Chad Smith).
