3 stars For most this probably won't be worth the money. If you want to check out Dream Theater, you'd buy 'Images and Words' or 'Scenes from a Memory'. However, if you ever wondered what Master of Puppets might sound like with keyboards (and who hasn't?) then this is the album for you.

Of course, that won't stop people from buying it and whining about what it is, but the thing is, this isn't an album to be taken seriously. Are Dream Theater superior musicians from a technical standpoint? Absolutely! Is James Hetfield a better singer than James LaBrie? It's debatable. Does Hetfield's vocals suit this album better than LaBrie's? Most likely.

Who cares? It's Dream Theater having some fun and covering a Metallica album live. Take it for what it is, although, avoid it completely unless you're an absolute die-hard fan of Dream Theater who needs everything in their collection. And who isn't?
