This is a good album, but to be honest, it's a better DVD. The DVD captures the feel of the concert better than the album can. However, there are a couple songs where the union just doesn't work, like Of Wolf and Man. The new songs are just incredible, though.

Awesome, awesome, awesome!! No Leaf Clover and Minus Human are awesome!! Playing with an orchestra was genius on metallica's part. Classical music and metal are actually two similar styles of music (believe it or not), so it's no coincedence that metallica and the orchestra sound so good together. this is a must buy!

This album was excellent. It took 'tallica's great metal songs and the new Load/ReLoad songs and made them sound even better and more interesting. Its great to hear the same music but from a different prespective and with a new attitude. And No Leaf Clover and -Human are a couple of my favorite songs.

I am sorry to say, this one didnt really do much for me.I think metallica can do ALOT better without the bells and whistles It was a good marketing plot, but none the less dissapointing.

This was a wonderful listening experience. The symphony added a new dimension to Metallica's music. However, I believe that they could have done a little bit more. In particular, I think that "Hero of the Day" could have benefitted a bit more from the orchestra. Standout tracks are "The Call of Ktulu", "For Whom the Bell Tolls", and the new "No Leaf Clover". All in all a great album.

Metallica stepped out and took a chance on this album. The strings add another layer to their think sound. All in all it's enjoyable and an excellent updated twist on their old songs.

Liked what they did with it, but I think there is something missing from it that could have pushed it over the top.

I think it is good to see musicians like those in Metallica proving how talented they actuall are rather than sitting around and having people talking about it.

I was at the concert at MSG, and even Metallica themselves said it was their best concert ever. The album is the most enthralling piece of metal mastery since....Garage Inc.

Frontman James Hetfeild himself admits that him and his band were a little nervous for the show. They had never played with an orchestra before and had to abandon the band's usual freestyle off-time style of live music. The nervousness show's as James sticks to the formula and limits himself from his popular ad-lib lyrics and shouts, but loosens up towards the end of the show. The orchestra and the band have a little trouble in the beggining, but pull it together in the end for a great conclusion. The two new congs rely heavily on the orchestra and are actually pretty good. Regardless, this CD must be bought.
