Japanese only SHM paper sleeve pressing. The SHM-CD [Super High Material CD] format features enhanced audio quality through the use of a special polycarbonate plastic. Using a process developed by JVC and Universal Music Japan discovered through the joint companies' research into LCD display manufacturing, SHM-CDs feature improved transparency on the data side of the disc, allowing for more accurate reading of CD data by the CD player laser head. SHM-CD format CDs are fully compatible with standard CD players. ÿ
Good quality japanese 80's metal
G. Burns | 05/21/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)
"When it comes to Loudness'american released english language albums,this one is the best.This is the first Loudness album that incorporated some slight elements of pop but it was just right and would give way to an even poppier sounding next album, Hurricane Eyes although that album was a disappointment because they took that pop sound way too far.This album,Lightning Strikes has great songs and it is a must have for fans of 80's metal.The guitar work of Akira Takasaki is great and is on par with people like Eddie Van Halen.The vocals are great too.Faster paced songs like"Face to Face" and"Black Star Oblivion" sound like speed metal.This band shows that they are versatile as well as being extremely talented.Every 80's metal collection should have Loudness in it."
Not the same as "Shadows of War"

"This CD is the U.S. remix of "Shadows of War," the Japanese release. This one is great, but has a different mix. I would buy "Shadows of War." It sounds better, and is heavier."
