Thank you mp3caprice for this album! It very hard to find a Metallica Greatest Hits album at other places. You get all of the classic thrash tunes from the first four albums. Songs like Seek and Destroy, Master of Puppets, One, Fade to Black, and many others. You also get songs from the transition period (thrash to hard rock) like Enter Sandman, The Unforgiven, and Sad but True. All of this in 320 bit rate which is just awesome.
The classic thrash metal band started out as just two guys, Lars Ulrich and James Hetfield, who decided to start a band. They got together and, without a bassist or lead guitar player, recorded their first song, Hit the Lights. The new band, Metallica, then hired Ron McGovney on bass and Dave Mustaine on lead guitar. It was very short lived, however, as Dave consistently acted like an asshole. Dave poured beer on Ron's bass and scratched up his car (poor Ron), causing him to get fired along with Ron quitting Metallica and music. After Ron left, James and Lars went out in search for a bassist. They saw Cliff Burton play his bass, sounding indistinguishable from an electric guitar. They hired him to the band along with Kirk Hammett from fellow bay area thrashers Exodus. They then released their debut with song credits to Dave Mustaine on four songs. They then released their best album to date, Ride the Lightning with speed and even death metal riffs. The same is seen on Master of Puppets, with even more classics. Then, while touring for Master of Pupets, Cliff Burton died in a bus accident where the driver fell asleep at the wheel. His replacement was Flotsam and Jetsam bassist Jason Newstead. Metallica then released their fourth album, ...And Justice for all, with many classics. However, because they were skeptical about Jason's bass playing after Cliff died, the bass is turned down enough to be inaudible, creating an incomplete sound. The album still has many classics. When recording their fifth album, Metallica (which presented a change in style), James Hetfield blew out his voice box recording the cover of Anti-Nowhere League's So What. He then recorded new vocals and released the album. This compilation album has the most famous songs from this era, which is a good start to Metallica. I recommend getting the entire albums in addition to this, though, because most of Metallica's best songs are deep cuts.
