A great debut for Metallica. This album had me headbanging for its entire 51 minute duration with it's excellent instrumentals, vocals and lyrics.
My only complaint is that the speed of the instrumentals I felt hurt some of the songs: it just seemed too fast for certain songs. However, this is just a minor nitpick of mine and doesn't really affect the album too badly.
Overall, this is an amazing thrash metal album that I know I will keep coming back to.

A promising, solid debut. Metallica really wear their influences on their sleeves. This album isn't even purely thrash metal but rather sped up and simplified metal inspired by punk rock. The ferocious speed is really pulling, though James's over-reverbed vocals are a bit of turn off. All in all, a good album, nothing more.

a true metal masterpiece. Metallica brings the best they have to offer with hard guitar riffs and piercing lyrics that give this album a hard feel. the best that the 80's metal scene had, this is one of the best LP's in the genre.
fav tracks: the four horsemen, seek and destroy
