This is.different.

Metallica began opting out of there fast-paced, lengthy tracks for a more tightly structured and simpler compositions. The change wasn't bad, and they did a decent job. They just threw way too many tracks on here for their own good. The first four tracks showed a promise in their change of sound, however, everything after that, with the exception of 'Nothing Else Matters' is something that could easily be forgotten unless the listener spins this album quite a number of time. No melodies to remember or great vocal lines. Everything essentially was cut short a bit.

Only recommended to Metallica fans and those looking for some accessible metal music.
