In other news regarding Metallica, fans recently took to social media to reflect upon one of the most popular albums by the group of all time – ‘Kill Em’ All’ One fan stated: “For those who may have been under a rock when this set was released (or perhaps just inundated with new music and endless reissues of old music, like I was) and have still not “jumped” into this pricey fire, hopefully, this review will be helpful and informative. I am usually not a fan of the proverbial “money grab” reissue process. Lifelong collectors usually find very little of interest from a product that is often rushed and not well thought out. Fortunately, no matter how you may feel about Metallica, they got this right.” Metallica reveal if Jason Newsted is ‘really sick’.
The reviewer continued: “First, the timing was right. Vinyl continues to grow in popularity as many of us old-school rockers grow weary of artless digital files and over-compressed CDs. And let’s face it, many of us have either worn out or sold our old records, or they just don’t sound good anymore with the modern phonographs. And who doesn’t want a new, high-quality recording of one of the most iconic albums in metal history? Second, the quality of both the content and the presentation is excellent. Finally, while clearly targeted to the dedicated Metallica fan, collectors will find much to enjoy as well, particularly the hardcover ear book, which in addition to the picture EP and live LPs, is really the chief selling point here as the remastered versions of the original CD and LP can be purchased separately. Metallica revealed why they ‘abandoned’ Jason Newsted.
I didn't know it was recorded. I thought they just messed around with the opening bass line on stage when Jason was in the band.
