Of course cutting at 45 speed is the audiophile choice for the highest quality. A 45-RPM record is sonically superior to a 33 1/3 variety because of a 35 percent reduction of groove curvature compared to a 33 1/3 cut.. It means that while you can't fit as much music into a 45, the undukations of the groove that your cartridge has to track are stretched over a longer distance. For these reissues, the music was displaced onto two sides, meaning each side contains about 10+ minutes of music.
The only way you'll get closer to this classic music is to listen to the master tapes or have been in the studio with the artist originally during the actual session
The nicest thing you can do for your stylus and your ears. The ultimate record -- the way music was meant to be heard and of superior quality for any Audiophile.
You should never pass up the opportunity to upgrade your collection. They're each very limited in their pressings and disappear with extraordinary quickness from the vinyl market. This causes prices to skyrocket because once they are gone, they are gone forever! Don't second-guess yourself with this chance to upgrade your collection because before you know it, the opportunity will have passed forever.
Called The Black Album by many (due to its monochrome cover), METALLICA marks the group's entrance into the mainstream, with shorter songs, simpler song structures, and slower tempos overall. That said, this is an excellent album, featuring some of the best songwriting Metallica has ever done. "Enter Sandman," "Wherever I May Roam," and "God That Failed," despite being slower and more groove-oriented than the band's earlier work, feature the same heavy riffs and heavier rhythms that have always been a feature of Metallica's music. The band goes introspective with "Unforgiven," and proves that they can write a ballad with "Nothing Else Matters," which succeeds better than one might expect. Overall, this is a high-energy album despite its laid-back approach.

The legendary self-title album by Metallica was the ground-breaking album by one of heavy rock’s most respected acts. In many ways Metallica redefined the role of the heavy rock album and spawned no less than five hit singles in the process! We’re talkin’ Enter Sandman, The Unforgiven, Nothing Else Matters, Wherever I May Roam and Sad But True.
"Bon Jovi producer Bob Rock helped create one of the best-selling metal albums of all time, led by "Enter Sandman" and the ballad "Nothing Else Matters." -
"Thanks to producer Rock, the coiled, brooding 'Enter Sandman' was the first Metallica tune that sounded perfect for the radio. As drummer Ulrich pointed out in 1991, 'The whole intro, the verse, the bridge, the chorus — it's the same riff.'" - Rolling Stone
