I already have a 24 caret gold version of this album, not the original CD, so my comparison may not be the same as yours. The first CD of this is the original album remastered. Comparing the CDs with headphones the 2018 remaster is almost exactly the same as my gold CD. I can't recommend buying this if you happen to have the gold CD.
The 2nd CD is rough versions of the album songs, and these are very rough. I sometimes like to hear alternate versions of songs, but these are so rough I can't really see myself listening to them again. I think they actually take away from the greatness of the original tracks. The 3rd CD is a concert. Sounds like a bootleg recording. If this is the best they could find, they probably shouldn't have bothered. I'll give it a few more listens, but it's very low quality and really only good for an historical account.
The 3 CD version comes with an upgraded booklet which is nice and the package looks good.
It pains me to give this 3 stars as it's one of my favorite albums. If you need to upgrade your old CD, just buy the single CD version as it's at a great price.
And the included extras are like icing on the cake. The demos tracks CD and the live tracks CD (all performances taken from the Damage, INC tour) are all quite listenable.
The 20 minute long interview with Cliff Burton was interesting to listen to but also sad since he is no longer with us. He seemed low-key and down to earth. He talks about how he was still living with his parents, etc. And looking through the included pictures, you really get a sense how young all band members still were at the time of the album's release.

I fully recomend this album to anyone who is into this type of music, it is one of them albums you can listen to over and over again and never get bored.
The sound quality is clear and precise, over all the sound is top notch.
the product came in perfect condition.
So if you are even the slightest bit interested in this Album I recomend you order it right away, you will not be dissapointed! :)
Why? because after justice metallica wrote songs, yes they may have made peoples toes tap or what ever but these first four albums brought out the inner beast in people. Covering subjects that were raw (and had obviously) harnessed much interest with the writers and conjoured up youthful angst, but they did this with intellegence and musical brilliance. This album has it all from the intense and sometimes brutal records of Damage inc., Battery (which in the end is them describing what they thought was a good night out), disposable heros (the horrors and insensitivity and futility of war, a song that was only surpassed by justices 'one'). To the calm before the storm of songs like Welcome home sanitarium, which to a point argued 'What is sane?' to the musical perfertion of orion, a piece of music even 'non-metalheads' adore for its drama and passion. And I havent even talked about Master of puppets, The thing that should not be and leper messiah yet whos lyrical (and all the other songs on the album for that matter)genius, still get people talking.
This was Hetfiled, Ulrich, Hammett and the late, great Cliff Burton (how good would this band have been if he'd survived)defining moment. The albums they produced after justice (as Burton had a lot of influence on that piece)had a lot to live up to and maybe in the hands of other lesser bands would have been there pinacle, but after the excellence of this album they never quite reached. Metallica are still after all these years a band I will hold dear, many amzing memories and live moments, but the early years are still the greatest. Long live Metallica!!!!!!!
Tracks like Master of Puppets, Welcome Home (Sanitarium), Disposable Heroes and The Thing That Should Not Be are some of the band's best ever in my opinion and most of them were written solely by guitarist Kirk Hammett.
Great songs all round definitely worth a buy.
