Amazing, as you would expect from Metallica
on 4 October 2013
I would imagine that most people interested in buying this would already know most is not all of the songs on this live CD, so i am not going to review the songs themselves.
Having seen Metallica live several times, I can say this perfectly captures Metallicas live sound including crowd participation. The sound has been polished during the mixing process, and unusually for a Metallica release you can clearly hear the bass guitar in the mix. The actual performance itself has very few mistakes that I can hear.
The only critisms I can find are mic issues during "Ride the Lightning" which will probably be explained in the film but sounds weird and silly on the audio CD; Two minutes of pyrotechnics at the beginning of the song "One" which is dull on audio only; And a minute and a half of rubbish at the end of "Enter Sandman" where is sounds like the stage breaks somehow. I assume that will be explained in the film.
Also some fans maybe annoyed at the exclusion of songs such as "Sad but True", "Seek and Destroy" ,"Fade to Black" or "Blackened", but they can't keep everyone happy. There are no songs from the albums "St. Anger" or "Load", which are Metallica least good studio albums, but James does say that they are playing songs from every album.
Overall this is a fanastic performance from a fanastic band. Well worth the money!!!
