I wonder if the sing along part during Memory sounds as cool in America as it does on some of the live recordings i've heard of it in Europe? I really doubt it though.
The thing is, as awesome as Unforgiven and Fade to Black are, the lyrics in Nothing Else Matters are an anthem for Metallica shows, I mean the song was written as a big sing along for people to feel united. Fade to Black and Unforgiven wouldn't have the same effect live I don't think, Iv only seen Fade and I know the crowd reacted better to Nothing Else Matters.
As for Memory, Iv heard some cool American recordings of it, but lik 7 out of 10 were really strong, in Europe EVERY Memory sing along sounds huge, that iv heard anyway
