This is the biggest box set we have EVER seen 😮😮😮😮😮


After the muddled production and ultra-complicated song structures of ...And Justice for All, Metallica decided that they had taken the progressive elements of their music as far as they could and that a simplification and streamlining of their sound was in order. While the assessment made sense from a musical standpoint, it also presented an opportunity to commercialise their music, and Metallica accomplishes both goals.

Deluxe Box Set

+ 2LP album;
+ 10” picture disc;
+ Live at Wembley LP;
+ 2LP live at Moscow;
+ 14 CDs (variety of unreleased/released demos, rough mixes, b-sides, covers, live shows);
+ 6 DVDs;
+ 120-page hardcover book (w/unreleased photos + stories);
+ Three magazine cover prints;
+ Metallica lanyard;
+ Four tour laminates;
+ Folder with lyric sheets;
+ Three guitar picks;
+ Download card;
+ Packaged in a hinged box. 

The best songs are more melodic and immediate, the crushing, stripped-down grooves of "Enter Sandman," "Sad but True," and "Wherever I May Roam" sticking to traditional structures and using the same main riffs throughout; the crisp, professional production by Bob Rock adds to their accessibility. "The Unforgiven" and "Nothing Else Matters" avoid the slash-and-burn guitar riffs that had always punctuated the band's ballads; the latter is a full-fledged love song complete with string section, which works much better than might be imagined.

The band's popularity exploded so much that most of their back catalog found mainstream acceptance in its own right, while other progressively inclined speed metal bands copied the move toward simplification.

Drift Recommends

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.

Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
