On the other hand, a local record store is selling all of the Metallica back catalogue for £7 each CD. Time to re-buy those CD's I scratched to Hell when i was 15.
Yeah, I really have to agree. Whoever mixed and mastered it did a half ass job.
But, imagine this. If it was properly mastered, it would sound alot better. Still though, I really like the album. Once you get past the recording (which was easy for me) the music is good.
