Product Description

Product Description

Did you hear the one about the rock band that wanted to play with a symphony? Metallica, never resting, never ceasing to innovate or amaze, returns with an extraordinary document of their concert with the San Francisco Symphony, available as a double album, a DVD and a VHS. On this release, Metallica's select favorites unfold like never before with the eloquent backing of The San Francisco Symphony. Metallica has never sounded more powerful or dramatic. The performance features two brand new songs - "No Leaf Clover" and "Human." Certified at 4 million units by the RIAA. (1/00)

Amazon.ca

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

No, I don't know much about heavy metal, or any genre for that matter. I know only what I hear on the radio, which these days is pretty pathetic. But I had to buy this album when I heard "No Leaf Clover" on the radio and I've become addicted. I will agree with some of the criticisms of this album, but I have to disagree with those that think this is a distaster, far from it. Metallica and Michael Kamen create a fabulous work, from the reimagining of "Call of Ktulu" (the orchestra turns up the volume on the guitar part that fades in and out of this song), to SFSO horns harmonizing with Metallica's guitars in "The Master of Puppets", to the full accompaniment of the SFSO over the guitar melody in "One". There may be some truth to the idea that Metallica sold out with this album. Since I've heard this album, I've bought "Ride the Lightning" and "Master of Puppets", and I listen to them on a regular basis. This album does have its flaws, but they are few. The only complaint I have about it is that I didn't go to see the concert.
Long live the memory of Michael Kamen and Cliff Burton.

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.

Many people may not know this album as being a "Live/Greatest Hits" album from Metallica, but rather an adventure. This album I believe has two openers, "The Ecstasy of Gold," introducing you to Michael Kamen's San Fransisco symphony, and an intro to Metallica with their famous instrumental "The Call of Ktulu" from their 2nd album "Ride the Lightning," then starts the brutality. Metallica's thundering Heavy-Metal is all recorded with the same style and sound, so you can forget about what kind of recording quality they used back when they had "Ride the Lightning," or "Master of Puppets" and you can also forget about how the songs from "Load/Re-load" sound as well. I think it is interesting with the orchestra, it has beautifully composed music to fit the mood and atmosphere of each song, the orchestra backs up the solo's, and melodies, without really taking any of Metallica's sound away. The two new tracks on this album, "No Leaf Clover," and "Human" have not been heard by a live audience, or in any Metallica album, but they have been recorded in the same sessions of the "Load/Re-load" era, and are great songs. I don't think I need to go over any more but that and I think this should be in anyones collection, wheather you are a Heavy-Metal fan or not.

Having grown up AFTER the Metallica generation, I wasn't introduced to this stuff until my sophmore year in high school. Bear in mind that I listen to Johann Sebastian Bach every day and I love classical music. That being said: I LOVE THESE CDS!! The fusion of hard rock and symphonic thunder is flawless. The orchestra accompanies and almost overwhelms the band in several tracks. The intensity in "Master of Puppets" is almost overwhelming, due in part to the orchestra. The two original tracks for this collection are incredible. "No Leaf Clover" contains some beautiful orchestral writing, with the band and orchestra practically playing each other off. The guitar solo in "Master of Puppets" sounds even better than the original. The tracks are engineered to perfection, and the orchestra really adds a new dimension to each piece. It's like hearing them for the first time all over again. The only complaint I personally have is that "Ride the Lightning," my favorite Metallica song, was left out. Otherwise, an awesome collection.

As a group, Metallica isn't a stranger to classical music; the intro to "Am I Evil" from "Kill 'Em All" is actually a section from Gustav Holst's "Mars: The Bringer of War" from "The Planets". I was raised on classical music, and discovered Metallica in my teen years. I never dreamed of hearing the two combined, so imagine my surprise at hearing of this collaboration.
According to an article in Rolling Stone magazine, legendary film director Francis Ford Coppola stormed out of this concert in disgust; as a classical music fan (and a season-ticket holder with the San Francisco Symphony), he apparently hated the melding of his beloved symphony with metal music. He should've stuck around, because he might have been heartened by the audience's reaction. The metal crowd actually gets into the classical sound; just listen to the beginning of "-Human". It was a new song, never before heard by the live audience. Yet, as the orchestra pounds away at the hammerblows of the first twenty-four seconds of the song, the audience begins chanting in perfect unison, providing a perfect accompaniment to the orchestra, carrying on the chant even as the orchestra switches gears just before Metallica kicks in. Absolutely glorious. They even cheer in response during the string section's brief bridge interlude in "Enter Sandman". In the same vein, the crowd's reaction to the album opener - a shortened version of Ennio Morricone's "The Ecstasy of Gold," from "The Good, The Bad And The Ugly," performed without Metallica - is awesome. The bell hit that opens the piece sounds like the opening to Metallica's "The Unforgiven"; maybe that's what made everyone cheer.
