Biography

Since their inception in 1981, Metallica have gone from an underground heavy-metal band to one of the most successful acts in the world, with an intensely loyal if not rabid fanbase. Their relevance is undeniable as evidenced by their ability to sell out stadiums and arenas worldwide while continuing to sell millions of albums with each release -- a feat no other band in history has sustained ...

The real reason anybody would buy this album is for the live tracks and not the song 'some kind of monster' - but with good reason. I have all Metallica's albums and the liive versions on this EP are quite phenomenal - they are more powerful, heavier, faster, and have longer and more intricate guitar solos than the studio versions. Also, just because its live doesnt mean that it has to sound tinny; the sound quality is really very good and you wouldnt know it was live most of the time. I only wish i had been in Paris to witness this amazing piece of music being performed.
However, you shouldnt buy this EP. 'The Unnamed Feeling' EP has exactly the same live tracks, but features the best song from the album St.Anger instead of Some Kind of Monster and has some cool packaging that you dont get with this cd. Thats the reason i have given it 4stars, to show that the live songs are brilliant but can be found on something even better. So go buy the unnamed feeling; its essential for any metallica fan, or any heavy metal fan for that matter.
o yeah, and being an EP, its cheap!

This EP features the full length album version of Some Kind Of Monster, including 6 live tracks recorded on June 11, 2003, in Paris, France. The biggest highlight for me was the edited version of Some Kind Of Monster. It sounds amazing! I just wish the would have let some of the intro play out, but nonetheless a great EP. Highly recommended.

Bought this because of the import element of the disc,the European version hasn't as many live tracks so it was a must for me

Very Nice EP 14 July 2004
By Daniel Knox - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
First off let me say that 'Some Kind of Monster' was one of my favorite songs off the controversial 'St. Anger' album, and this here is the cd-single/EP of that track...the live tracks here document the band's early days, and are performed flawlessly with the band sound as energetic and vital as ever...but i have to say the real surprise and standout for me on this album, was the edit and remix of the title track: THIS is the way 'St. Anger' should have sounded! the song is punchier and just sounds a 1000 times better than the original version despite being cut down to about 4:15, buy this for that gem alone!...also, the added t-shirt is a nice addition, albeit a very wrinkled one when you first buy it lol...well this is a solid EP, with some great live tracks and a killer remix of 'Some Kind of Monster', let's hope they remix the rest of 'St. Anger' like this

Get Over It, Already They Are not Puppets 14 Sept. 2004
By Louis Borovay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I don't care what you people say, Metallica still kicks-a$$. Next time you morons feel like ragging on James and company remember that bands have to evolve or they tend to disappear. Can you honestly name very many bands from the 80's metal scene that are still around today? NO bands that broke up and reunited DO NOT count.

Metallica would love to make albums that sound just like Kill 'Em All but if they did (as much as you complain about wanting that sound) everyone would start whining "That sounds like stuff they did in the 80's, can't they get with the times?" I've noticed that you morons can't be pleased. you just like to complain about anything METALLICA. Also I would like to know if some of the reviewers have even seen Metallica live? Because I have seen them twice recently and they played King Nothing off Load and Fuel off Reload. Not to mention Enter Sandman, Nothing Else Matters, and Sad But True. As a matter of fact I don't know of any concert since the black album was released that they have not played Enter Sandman. And this album and T-shirt were great, a good price too. I can't wait for the movie. You people don't want to listen to a great band your just want a group of puppets that will only play what you want them to.

old school rox 29 July 2004
By Barbarian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a cool EP to get if you dig collecting live Metallica tracks. Will Culp's review for this was pretty awful... hey will, how could you say damage inc and ride the lightning are some of metallica's weakest songs in the 80s? Are you one of those trendy metallica fans who only know Fade to BLack and Master of Puppets? Your musical tastes obviously lacks.

The edit of Some Kind of Monster sounds better than original but nothing great. Its kind of a shame Metallica spent more time making a movie that'll probably tarnish their perception of most fans who viewed them as those guys in the 80s who were willing to take anybody down. They could've spent way more time recording St Anger than crying to some psychologist aobut their problems.

Either way, old tracks are great and don't listen to Will Culp's sub par review.

Metallica: Some Kind Of Monster (2004) 8 July 2005
By Chad DeFeo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In 2004, Metallica had filmed and released a documentary film entitled, SOME KIND OF MONSTER. Metallica did not want to stop there. They released another album to go along with it. The album is entitled, SOME KIND OF MONSTER. The album stands as sort of the soundtrack to the documentary.

SOME KIND OF MONSTER

From Metallica's album ST. ANGER (2003). Even though this song was originally released on ST. ANGER, as well as being the second single to be released from ST. ANGER, Metallica decided to include it here, since it was the title to their documentary. Great song.

THE FOUR HORSEMEN (Live)

Original verion from Metallica's album KILL 'EM ALL (1983). Not bad.

DAMAGE, INC. (Live)

Original version from Metallica's album MASTER OF PUPPETS (1986). Incredible.

LEPER MESSIAH (Live)

Original version from Metallica's album MASTER OF PUPPETS (1986). Incredible.

MOTORBREATH (Live)

Original version from Metallica's album KILL 'EM ALL (1983). Incredible.

RIDE THE LIGHTNING (Live)

Original verison from Metallica's album RIDE THE LIGHTNING (1984). Awesome.

HIT THE LIGHTS (Live)

Original version from Metallica's album KILL 'EM ALL (1983). Great.

SOME KIND OF MONSTER (Edit)

Original version from Metallica's album ST. ANGER (2003). Not a bad edit.

This album is pretty good in the sense that it has Metallica performing some of their early tunes from their first three albums live. Gotta love Metallica's old tunes. This is a worthy album.

Latter day Metallica Live. 26 Aug. 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you really want to listen to Metallica Live, get Live **** or go to [...] to download their shows. They are more complete.

Some kind Of Monster isn't that bad, but it is more on the hard rock side.

Ride The Lightning (one of my favs) doesn't seem strong enough, lacking the power and intensity of some kind of monster. You know, after 19 years since Ride the Lightning, 20 since Kill Em All,17 since Master of Puppets (Recorded in 2003) , they would have been powered up. Look at Sabbath. 19 years apart and they still play like 20year olds. The drums don't seem to echo enough. Most live albums would have echoes, you know. Again, listen to Reunion by Black Sabbath. You can't hear the bass that much.

Anyway, the show doesn't seem balanced. I would put more of the classics instead of Damage Inc, Motorbreath, and blah blah blah. Master of Puppets and Battery should be here. They havent played Whiplash for a while. Metal Militia as well. You want a completeshow, go to livemetallica.com
