Sound: The sound of this DVD is great, but it gives you live feeling, not album sound. As many know Metallica is one of the best heavybands in this world and they know how to deliver their music. As always they preforme it well. This shows Metallica in '89 and '92, and you get three CDs with a live concert from Mexico in '93, you get very much for your money. // 10

Content: This DVD was made around the time of ...And Justice For All and Metallica so it have many songs from those albums, but there are many songs from the other albums to. This is the best live DVD concert I own, it is even better than S&M and Iron Maiden's Rock In Rio. I am very much satisfied with the setlist because there are so many good songs there. They should have had Disposable Heroes and Ride The Lightning and it would have been the perfect Metallica setlist. It does have some photos and at the San Diego disc from '92 there is a 20 minuts long documentary about Metallica and the making of the Metallica album. And at the Seattle disc from '89 there are flash "forward" where you see what that has happened between '92 and '89. There are also many goood things such as Hammett playing Little Wing by Jimi Hendrix and Hetfield and Ulrich battling each other on the drums. Plus a long Seek And Destroy in San Diego where Hetfield is getting down with the audience and singing with them. And Lars running from one drumkit to another during a song. // 10

Production Quality: It is perfect quality which are beeing used filming theese shows. They are filmed from many different. It must have been trendy at that time, but Metalica have used it like that ever since. // 10

Overall Impression: It is as good as most of the album songs, the only thing which is bad is that they dont play the whole Master Of Puppets in '92. The most impressive thing about this DVD is the overall Metalica experience you get from it. I just love this DVD, can't hate Metallica! If some punk stole this disc I would buy a new, and if I knew who it was I would take it back! Boys and girls, run out and buy this now! // 10

Sound: It's almost like your'e on the concert yourself. Play this very loud and you will enjoy it! There are many people that says that the sound quality on the DVD's is bad, but it sound almost like the CD's. The sound is very good to be so old as it is. There's nothing to complain about! This is going to be one of the best 8 hours in your life! // 10

Content: This is incredible! One concert from Mexico City in 1993 (Nowhere Else To Roam Tour), with over two hours with music on the 3 cd's. And then there's a three and a half hour long concert from San Diego in 1992 (same tour) on the first DVD. On the second DVD there's a two and a half hour long concert from the damaged justice tour in Seattle in 1989. Here is the track list for all the five discs: Disc: 1 01. Enter Sandman 02. Creeping Death 03. Harvester Of Sorrow 04. Welcome Home (Sanitarium) 05. Sad But True 06. Of Wolf And Man 07. Unforgiven 08. Eye Of The Beholder/Blackened/The Frayed Ends Of Sanity Disc: 2 01. Through The Never 02. For Whom The Bell Tolls 03. Fade To Black 04. Master Of Puppets 05. Seek And Destroy 06. Whiplash Disc: 3 01. Nothing Else Matters 02. Wherever I May Roam 03. Am I Evil? 04. Last Caress 05. One 06. Battery 07. Four Horsemen 08. Motorbreath 09. Stone Cold Crazy Disc: 4 (DVD) 01. Enter Sandman 02. Creeping Death 03. Harvester Of Sorrow 04. Welcome Home (Sanitarium) 05. Sad But True 06. Wherever I May Roam 07. Through The Never 08. Unforgiven 09. Eye Of The Beholder/Blackened/The Frayed Ends Of Sanity 10. Four Horsemen 11. For Whom The Bell Tolls 12. Fade To Black 13. Whiplash 14. Master Of Puppets 15. Seek And Destroy 16. Last Caress 17. Am I Evil? 18. Battery 19. Stone Cold Crazy Disc: 5 (DVD) 01. Blackened 02. For Whom The Bell Tolls 03. Welcome Home (Sanitarium) 04. Harvester Of Sorrow 05. Four Horsemen 06. Thing That Should Not Be 07. Master Of Puppets 08. Fade To Black 09. Seek And Destroy 10. ...And Justice For All 11. One 12. Creeping Death 13. Battery 14. Last Caress 15. Am I Evil? 16. Whiplash 17. Breadfan Real f--king good, or what? All the best songs ar ine this live box. There is a 20 minute long guitar solo on disc one. On the first DVD, Lars and James battling eachother on the drumkits, and it's a 10 minute long drumsolo. After that, Kirk comes in and plays a ten minute long guitar solo (it's real fucking cool). And in the four horsemen, Lars are running across the stage to anothe drumkit! On the second dvd, Kirk plays Hendrix's "Little Wing" (real good). You can't be a Metallica fan without this DVD! The content on the DVD's is rated R for language and brief nudity. // 10

Production Quality: The DVD's have great quality! It's just on whiplash wher they have mixed the tape so you can't see kirk when he is soloing (you just sees the audience.) Trendy effects! // 10

Overall Impression: This is the best live recordings from Metallica! love everything about it! Buy this, it's an order! // 10
