Metallica is boldly and appropriately named as it's virtually impossible to have any meaningful discussion about the Heavy Metal genre without any mention being made about the vast impact that this band has made over the '80s and up to the mid '90s. What U2 did for pop/rock, Metallica did for Metal in blending intelligent (somewhat) topics with good musicianship and hence making the genre more accessible to a much wider audience than ever before. Metal owes a great debt to this band and this album ain't half bad.
