Metal Archives
While many call this album a “masterpiece”, it did expose the bands limitations. Hetfield is a decent songwriter overall, with good ideas here and there, but he cannot piece them together properly, unlike Mustaine, who knew how to formulate his ideas. […]

PopMatters
I’m not going to come out and make some ridiculous statement like, “It was like Metallica were singing my thoughts”, or, “Metallica’s music saved me from slashing my wrists”. […]

Metal Storm
This was the last time Cliff Burton was able to showcase his talents but he left us with a masterpiece. The album is a definite must have in any heavy metal fan’s collection. […]
