TAS Rated 4/5 Music, 4/5 Sonics in the February 2021 Issue of The Absolute Sound!
S&M2, the live set from Metallica & The San Francisco Symphony, is the concert event of the year!
This live recording features 20 songs (over 2.5 hours of music) from the two-night event that opened San Francisco's new Chase Center, with many Metallica fan favorites and two unique classical songs chosen by San Francisco Symphony Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas.
S&M2 has newly remixed and remastered audio for a whole new sound from the original theatrical run in October 2019.
Reimagining some of the band's most beloved hits as symphonic opuses that give the tracks new dimension and depth.
The group proved that anything was possible by teaming up with the symphony...You could practically hear Beethoven roll over.
Metallica changed the face of metal. Again.
The symphony adds layers of color to Metallica's long, brooding instrumental, 'The Call of Ktulu.' When band and orchestra team up during an excerpt from a classical piece, Alexander Mosolov's 'Iron Foundry,' the results are menacing enough to belong in an upcoming horror movie. 'Wherever I May Roam' pairs vocalist James Hetfield with the orchestra to good effect. A raw, edgy tribute to Metallica's late bassist, Cliff Burton, '(Anesthesia) - Pulling Teeth' begins as a solo feature for the orchestra's principal bassist Scott Pingel, who's then joined by drummer Lars Ulrich. Everything is well-recorded, and Metallica collectors have a plethora of formats to choose from, including a 4-LP vinyl set.
