S&M - fantastic on DVD and CD..... So buy both!,
This review is from: Metallica S&M Concert (2000)[DVD] (DVD)
S&M is an incredible fusion of metal/rock ferocity blending seamlessly with orchestral elegance. Most of Metallica's biggest songs are present in the set list with Michael Kamen in charge of conducting the San Fransisco Symphony Orchestra (who you might know orchestrated the strings section for Nothing Else Matters way back when the Black Album came out). The orchestra really add an extra dimension to Metallica's songs and create a powerful experience. The quality of the DVD is also very good - 2 discs featuring the entire concert (with fantastic sound quality) and a moderately lengthy documentary. One interesting feature is the ability to choose to listen to either the band & orchestra (as normal) or just emphasise on the band/orchestra individually. Overall, an incredible concert on a very well produced DVD. Just make sure you buy the CD as well! Brilliant.
