ok...as a huge old time fan(pre-"load" years..),this set is pretty damn nice and a great collection of classic songs but a few changes would have been nice. First the bad...5 disks(3 CD's & 2 DVD's) and almost EXACTLY the same set list on each one! i mean i love "seek and destroy" and "battery" but how about a disk of some rare tracks,demos,or the stuff you never hear live? ("eye of the beholder","escape",'holier then thou" ect.) the stuff you expect in a box set. now..the disks themselves.the sound quality on the audio disks is awesome(the drum sound and riffs on "sad but true" and "am i evil" are even heavier the the albums!) however i could REALLY do with out the moronic 9 minute crowd chant in "seek and destroy". now the DVD's.. in my mind disk two in Seattle BLOWS AWAY disk one in San Diego. the Seattle show is KILLER! it's extremely well shot,looks like real concert and the power and groove of the band at their peak really comes off well. the San Diego show(taped on the black album tour) on the other hand looks like an extended standard music video with too many quick cuts,blury stage shot and bad lighting, kinda like a Michael Bay movie. Bottom line...i've watched the disk two about 40 times, i've watched disk one a total of twice. nuff said. oh yeah...its a bummer but neither of the two DVD's are in widescreen (they were shot in 89' and 93 so its excuseable. in closing this set is worth getting if your a hard core fan of the good old days even at the price just don't expect anything really new or hard to find, just a good live document of a (once) great band and killer tunes.
