5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 17 Dec. 2009

This review is from: Francais Pour Une Nuit [DVD] [2009] [NTSC] (DVD)
At last a properly filmed, official Metallica live dvd is out! Although it is intended for the French audience, you choose a language to view the interview in and nothing else is affected.

Everything about this performance is simply awesome. James's voice is the best it has been since the S&M concert, retaining all the power it had in the early days. This is one of the reasons the DVD is so great. Lars is using his double bass pedal to a brilliant effect, this gives you one of the best live versions of 'Fuel' and 'Master of Puppets' - actually it gives every song a new dimension (especially 'Harvester of Sorrow'), his fills also seem slicker and more complex. Rob is perfect as ever and Kirk is brilliant with perfect lead work, and does a good little solo midway through, his backup vocals on 'Harvester of Sorrow' are also perfect.

The setlist is a great one, with every song performed to awesome standard, but you do notice the absense of songs like 'Battery' and 'For Whom the Bell Tolls'. 'Orion' would have been awesome but this doesn't knock any points off of it for me.

The thing that finishes everything off is the arena in Nimes - awesome, a full length, uninterrupted Metallica concert. This definately ties as the best I own along with Cunning Stunts
