“This IS Spinal Tap!”

ProMetallica and a symphony. How stupidly awesome?

ConsNot a definitive greatest hits, takes a while to g...

METALLICA - S&M (1999) Music fans are a fickle bunch of easily offended twunts. Take the standard rule of thumb that applies to Metallica for instance. The long haired, speed-metal merchants creating the complex, orchestrated tracks of the eighties are to be revered; the more polished, manicured...

When you first think of Metallica, an orchestra is not the sort of thing that springs straight into mind, so, when the biggest metal band of all time combined with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra (a mouthful in itself would you agree) to conduct this concert in 1999, there were a few heads...

ProSee above.

ConsSee above.

This is the final album to be released on the Vertigo label after the recent parting of Jason Newstead from THE BAND. For some swansong work with the rest of Metallica, the fans rejoiced that this release was not just the same old hits bashed out unenergetically. OH NO. This is a CD where two...

Simply stunning is how to describe this album. Until now I did not understand how a double CD could roll out hit songs, one after another. Each song on here, is a masterpiece in itself and it holds t he classics such as 'Of Wolf and Man' which will always be one of my favourites as well many...

Prosee review

Conssee review

Somewhere back in the late 90s two of the world's most powerful forms of music were to collide live on stage in front of an audience of thousands. Metallica's uncompromising style of thrash metal was to meet with the San Fransisco Orchestra, in a 2 hour set which would feature some of Metallica's...

ConsA couple don't work to well

Where exactly James, Lars and Co. got the idea to do this I don’t know (Well, actually I do – Conductor Michael Kamen contacted the band and suggested it) – but I’m glad they did. It’s very rare that a live album manages to capture the energy of the actual performance but Bob Rock, the producer...

“Metal on Strings”

published 13/01/2001

ProBig Sound, Great New songs

ConsOld songs may bore some

Metallica are not as well known in England compared to our US cousins. Over 3 decades they have produced some of the most memorable metal songs and S&M is their latest effort. I've been bought up on Heavy Metal music since a toddler and Metallica is my most favourite of all bands. This album was...

Wow, this album is incredible. I am a huge Metallica fan and when I discovered that Metallica were performing with an orchestra I was very disturbed and thought that it must be a joke.

ConsDon't expect anything like Nu-Metal noise.

Put simply, this is stunning. Of course, that is a personal opinion, and I'm sure I could find plenty of Metallica fans who would disagree with me, possibly violently. But it depends on why you like Metallica. A lot of people hate anything from Metallica (1992) onwards, claiming that they sold...

This is a Metallica album I never thought of getting, I was wrong I am glad to say! This album rocks, but some of the songs are VERY much like all James Bond themes, have another listen if you have it, i promise you'll giggle!

ProInteresting crossover

ConsDoesn't always work

No, not Metallica's new porn video, this is an audacious collaboration between hard rock's most successful outfit and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. It has been attempted before by others of course, but this seems to be the most successful effort yet. To be honest, the orchestra often seem...

ConsIt's not trendy "nu-metal"

A live show with a difference. Instead of just playing their songs as per usual, Metallica enlist the help of a full orchestra to play specially arranged versions of their songs. It's not as original as you may think. Back in the early '70s, Deep Purple released their Concerto For Group And...
