This week brought news that all but marks the end of an era in the world of recorded music. Target is expected to make a similar move, selling CDs only on consignment, which will essentially leave the aging digital disc to be relegated to a few last bastions, including Walmart, a motley collection of record shops with a CD section at the back, and of course, online distributors like the all-powerful Amazon.

This huge set from Metallica allows one of their most progressive, difficult LPs time in the spotlight. Released between the twin pillars of Master of Puppets and Metallica following the death of bassist Cliff Burton, here.
And Justice For All is remastered across vinyl and CD, with room for live albums, a picture disc, unreleased material, plus tour laminates, patches and prints. Released to some fanfare in , this retrospective provides a thorough look at a vital piece of the US indie-rock jigsaw puzzle.
