Product Description


At a point in their career when most bands would rest their laurels upon a greatest-hits package or live album, Metallica has done both, but with a decidedly loopy twist. They've recorded a double-live greatest-hits package with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra "sitting in." Rock history and cutout bins are littered with previous attempts at a rock-symphonic fusion, from Emerson, Lake & Palmer to Deep Purple to the Moody Blues and the Siegel-Schwall Blues Band. But while previous efforts at mixing the low-brow with the high-brow have mostly ended up browbeating the intended audience, S&M plays like a precarious joy ride. Set against the shrewd efforts of a team of orchestrators and arrangers (who employ enough taste to keep proceedings from sounding like one long "Live and Let Die" outtake), Metallica plays for their lives, undercutting their general somber tone by ratcheting up their musicianship several notches. The most underrated player here is SFO guest conductor and soundtrack vet Michael Kamen, whose attention to detail and nuance--and intuitive grasp of the Metallica canon--keeps this unlikely meeting of the minds focused and on track. -Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars What a deal! Sept. 5 2013
By Ben
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Metallica is among the most legendary bands is the world and I've wanted this album for a long time. When backed by an entire orchestra Metallica is nothing short of amazing. The price tag on this item in stores kept me away from it for long time until I found this bargain. From $40 in stores to $15 dollars here. I was on it in a heartbeat.

This live album recorded at the Berkeley Community Theatre in Berkeley, CA is absolutely amazing! The San Francisco Symphony adds so much to Metallica's musical brilliance. The live album features old songs from the 80's as well as songs off the Black Album, Load and ReLoad!
The Call of Ktulu is probably the most beautiful song off the album, followed by the intense Master of Puppets. Fuel sounded a lot better than the single off of ReLoad. James seemed to have forgotton the 2nd verse of The Thing That Should Be. I loved the songs off of Load which include Hero of the Day, Bleeding Me and Until it Sleeps. One of my favorites was One, from ...And Justice For All. Wherever I May Roam sounds great along with the awesome ending with Battery.
James voice is very impressive throughout the whole album. A lot of non Metallica fans that I know really like this cd, because of the sound the symphony brings in. All Metallica fans will like this album. It is great, and the DVD of S&M is also worth owning. Finally, Metallica, one of the best hard rock bands of all time continue to do what they do best: Play awesome live concers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Oct. 18 2003
Format:Audio CD
'S&M' is the best Metallica album of the ninties.It combines (mostly) the best of their extensive back catalogue,(although missing off 'The Unforgiven' was a horrific mistake)with Michael Kamen's San Francisco symphony beauty and power.Kamen had previously arranged the orchestration on 'The Unforgiven' from 1991's 'Metallica'.The only major Metallica album not represented here is 'Kill'em All', their 1983 debut,which seems a shame ,but if you listen to it you'll see it's way too frantic.
The best songs here are not necessarily the best Metallica songs.Indeed, 'Nothing Else Matters',usually a torrid ballad, positively sparkles when backed by the orchestra.Also 'The Call of the Ktulu','One','The Outlaw Torn','Bleeding Me','For Whom the Bell Tolls','Of Wolf and Man' and the ever brilliant 'Battery',in which the spainish guitars in the inro are swapped for the orchestra's string section,which adds a whole new depth once the main riff comes in.Also of note is the intro cover of 'The Ecstasy of Gold' from the 'Good, The Bad, and The Ugly' soundtrack,where the orchestra is used to full classical potential,and so are the 2 new tracks,'Minus Human' and 'No Leaf Clover'.The former is a slow chugging power song, but the latter's twinkly guitars and distorted verse paving way for an acoustic chorus is rather superb.
Everything has it's downside though,and on 'S&M' it's a couple of songs that are completely ruined by the orchestra.'Sad But True drags even more than it's Black Album counterpart,'Fuel' sounds as average and uninspired as ever,if not more so,and the biggest crime is the brutal mutilation of the once-brilliant'Master of Puppets',the only track which is rendered completley unlistenable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Metallica's hits live with a Symphony July 18 2004
By Gitters
Format:Audio CD
Metallica's S&M is a live concert with an orchestra. While the idea may scare fans off, the orchestra accompanying Metallica's songs is quite good. The playing from both groups is good, and what makes it even better is that being a live album, it removes the filler that often makes their albums dull and boring.
