    I still love Metallica, and love to see how they have progressed as musicians. but I miss the grit in James' voice.
    I miss the grit in Jasons voice lol
    Jasons backups in Creeping Death were awesome MOTHER F*CKER DIE!
    is pretty much the best live version of Master Of Puppets there is. But I also love Primus' take on the song's first riffs.
    Lars' drums sounded better back then and he didn't play so lazily. I wish he'd watch these old videos and get a 2nd wind.
    i have so much more respect for them after reading the dvd's release price. independent label was a great move imo. consumer pays less, musician makes more i cant really fault them for that
    Metallica '89 FTW. They kept time, it still sounded very heavy, and James voice still sounded like a man!
    Badass UltraMan
    I still love going to see Metallica live, they put on a fantastic show but it doesn't seem to translate well to a DVD any more. Listening to them on a recording of a live show these days sounds like they decided that distortion was no longer their thing and started using a cheap overdrive pedal set to 'mild' and month-old strings that no longer ring out for longer than a bar. It is something that has bugged me for a few years now, especially when you watch a clip back-to-back with an older video
    Seeing as there are a lot of clear shots of people in the crowd just standing around lifeless without their hands up or anything, I'm wondering if this DVD release was delayed because the crowd didn't look very dynamic (compare it to the Nimes live DVD). Odd since this is a Quebec City crowd (known to be probably the best crowd in North America). Or maybe they just wanted to space out the releases so people wouldn't feel as much DM live DVD overkill?
    And in standard UG fashion; the news about them joining spotify will come sometimes next month, when they already have billions of hits there...
