So, around this time I had heard Metallica on the radio and liked some stuff but didn't really invest in them. Then a friend on my school bus (I credit the long school bus ride for introducing me to a lot of music) said if I like Metallica then check this out: Metallica playing a concert with a orchestra and I remember thinking: LOL A ROCK BAND PLAYING WITH A SISSY ORCHESTRA LOL GAYZ. Boy was I wrong

Say what you will about Metallica but this release was a highlight; many bands have done the show with an orchestra backing and Metallica made it work; a lot of credit goes to Michael Kamen and the San Francisco Orchestra, the whole album feels powerful, and once I gave it a chance, it turned me onto the band and pushed me to go after their other releases, starting with Ride the Lightning. One of my all time favorite live albums, S&M gave me the unusual route to Metallica

Today's score 9/10
10/29-King Diamond/Exodus
11/7-Machine Head
11/11-Blind Guardian
11/21-Trans-Siberian Orchestra
