3 stars The double DVD of both parts is almost 4 hours of non stop Metallica. But here we have part 1. The making of the Black Album is a fascinating look at how the masterpiece evolved from small beginnings to becoming the worldwide million seller. We see a fly on the wall look at how the riffs emerged, and some of the songwriting is featured as well. It is great to see the chemistry of the group as they band together to create a brilliant album. The songs we know and love are featured, including Enter Sandman, Sad But True and of course Nothing Else Matters. The band were never better as far as making worldwide headlines and becoming a super group virtually overnight. From underground metal giants to groundbreaking legends, this is where it all happened. The Black Album really made the music world sit up and take notice. Even non metal fans were no longer ignoring them. They were suddenly a household name with songs such as The Unforgiven. It is worth checking out this first part but if you want to be blown away check out the documentary of the tour in Part 2.
