5 stars In my youth I was a huge Metallica fan and liked almost every album. Over the years, they ceased to rock me like they did but one album will forever stand out: Symphony & Metallica!

Although they might not be very interesting and successful in terms of progmusic, they definately created some almost proggy songs across their career.

As if they wanted to keep up with the complexity of a symphony orchestra, the setlist contains not only their best but also their most complex songs!

This mixture is just pure extacy! All songs sound much much better than on any studio or other live-album. The orchestra adds the missing epicness and gentle interplay and James voice sounds better than ever! For me, this is the ESSENCE and Zenith of Metallica!

After 10 years, this Masterpiece is still one of my most favourite albums of all time!

Highly recommended!!
