Guest review by
The Silent Man

Symphony & Metallica is a strange musical experiment: Metallica meets the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra.
After writing the orchestration for Nothing Else Matters, conductor Michael Kamen invited The Four Horsemen to play live with an orchestra. And seven years later here's the result: some people loves it, some other hates it. I'm neutral.

Guest review by

Ten years after hitting their highest standards, Metallica felt that it was the time to make a change in their overall sound. "...And Justice for All" was certainly a major contribution to progressive music, but to their own opinion, not their best product. After having felt that they over-produced the Justice album, shorter songs, simpler riffs and less experimentation followed. The "radio-friendly" period, The 90's, were certainly the most successful and controversial times for the band.

Rating: 8 It was a risky bet, but in the end it is a very enjoyable live album.

  Very strange to hear such classic songs played by an orchestra. I either dislike or like this album, I kind of feel indifferent.

Rating: 10 I'm not a huge metallica fan, but this album for me is a almost perfect fit between Metal and Classic Music.

Rating: 8 Possibly one of my favorite live albums ever (and Metallica releases period really). Brilliant combo of Metallica's thrash with Michael Kamen's symphony. Love it.
