The Black Album is the eighth studio album by American rapper Jay-Z, released on November 14, 2003, by Roc-A-Fella Records. It was advertised as his final album before retiring, which is also a recurring theme throughout the songs, although Jay-Z resumed his recording career in 2006. For the album, Jay-Z wanted to enlist a different producer for each song, working with Just Blaze, Kanye West, The Neptunes, DJ Quik, Timbaland, 9th Wonder and Rick Rubin, among others.
Metallica (commonly known as The Black Album) is the fifth studio album by American heavy metal band Metallica. Released on August 12, 1991 by Elektra Records, it received widespread critical acclaim and became the band's best-selling album. Metallica produced five singles that are considered to be among the band's best-known songs, which include "Enter Sandman", "The Unforgiven", "Nothing Else Matters", "Wherever I May Roam", and "Sad but True"
Colloquially known as the Black Album, Metallica‘s self-titled fifth album still towers over the modern hard-rock and metal landscape like a giant obsidian monolith. Released 25 years ago today, Metallica – which sold more than 650,000 copies in its first week of release, and spent four consecutive weeks at the top of the Billboard 200 in the late summer of 1991 – has gone on to sell over 16 million copies in the . alone, making it the best-selling album of the last quarter-century. The 10-minute, fucking progressive, 12-tempo-changes side of Metallica had run its course afte. nd Justice For All. We wanted to streamline and simplify things. We wrote the song in a day or two.

The Black Album's shorter, more streamlined songs were a reaction against. And Justice for All's proggy excess " To me, th. nd Justice For All album sounds horrible, awful, can't fucking stand it," James Hetfield told Uncut bluntly in 2007. That was our fancy stage, showing off too much. We knew we had to move on and the Black Album was the opposite. So when me and Lars got back together after a short break, I said, 'We gotta really try and write some shorter, to-the-point songs

Best Black Sabbath album to have ever been recorded! Best lineup of Black Sabbath, by far: Ozzy Osbourne - vocals Tony Iommi - guitar Geezer Butler - bass Bill Ward - drums. Black Sabbath’s masterpiece is Master of Reality. The 1st album that Tony Iommi detuned his guitar on to give that classic Sabbath sound. While Paranoid might have more recognizable hits, Master of Reality is better start to finish. Don't just automatically pick "Paranoid" as the best Sabbath album because it has two "hits". Put on your diplomatic hat and listen to these two albums back to back. You'll see that the riffs on Master kill the riffs on the Paranoid album.
