4 stars This is an excellent package of live content for Metallica. For a long time Metallica was well known for not releasing live videos or recordings, so they certainly made up for it with this package. I have the original box set which came with 3 CDs and 3 VHS Video cassettes in a well designed box. It also included a large book with lots of letters, photos, posters, etc from the recording of the Black album and the following tour, all displayed in a scrapbook type format. It certainly can be interesting to flip through the book and see some of the miscellaneous items they included. Back when I was younger, my friends and I would go back and forth between watching the videos for this, and the video of "A Year and a Half in the Life of...". I am not a huge fan of listening to live performances with audio only, so I have barely listened to the CDs, but the videos make up for that in a big way. The production value on the concert videos is nothing less than perfect and Metallica are certainly able to put on a good show. If you are a fan of Metallica then you cannot go wrong with this box set. I can only give a review on the VHS version I have, but I'm certain the DVD version must be just as good. (although I don't know if the DVD comes with the scrapbook in full-size, as a smaller version, or if it is included at all)
