2 stars I get the point. Nor for Metallica fans nor for Dream Theater fans

While most of the DT fans are always asking for me, I don't see why I should want to hear this album. Yes, I do appreciate the original version, I consider Metallica's masterpiece indeed, but for hearing DT covering an entire album, is just not what I dream of. It's just another extravaganza of Mike Portnoy, I can live without it, but if you are a die hard fan, you should check it out.

This is a bootleg, so the sound quality is not great. To be honest, is not near to good, but that's OK because you can hear the audience all over it singing over James vocals and the energy and the raw sound just make emphasis on the energy and power of a metal masterpiece.

Not too much to say if you already know the quality of DT playing live, which is the best you can have about tight and wonderful technique, and they maybe play better than Metallica, but I know Metallica fans would prefer the original version, while Dream Theater fans would prefer whatever is original from them. So, 2 stars, Collectors or fans only. Yeap, it's just like that. + one star because of the wonderful audience, Spanish audience is loud man... Really loud...
