First side is pretty much untouchable. LP mastered by Robert Ludwig (RL in the deadwax) and why the original LP sounds so much hotter than it's early 80's Heavy Metal contemporaries.

Trapped under Ice may be my favorite Metallica track ever.

"Creeping Death" easily my fave track on Side 2. If Side 2 held the standard of Side 1, RtL could topple Melissa as my fave 80's METAL LP.

Noice! ;) That's nice looking vinyl copy. I'm actually looking out for a vinyl copy myself.


Haven't heard this album in ages tho. Just haven't been really into Metallica lately,but of course what makes this legit is because of Cliff Burton. That's good enough to revisit this. I think Master of Puppets is a little bit better though because of Orion.

Thanks. It's original first pressing and it's NM-. Sounds very sick on my vintage stereos. And yes, i paid a bit extra for it....
