AllMusic Review by

Prior to the release of Metallica's first live collection, Live Shit: Binge & Purge, the band issued the following warning to their fans: "expect the unexpected." What an understatement! Included in this mammoth box set are three compact discs (the cassette version contains two tapes), three videotapes (the DVD version contains two DVDs), a 72-page book chock-full of photos and notes (included on DVD Two on the DVD version), a backstage pass replica, and a stencil drawing courtesy of James Hetfield. The recording contains a full concert taken from a five-night stand at Sports Palace in Mexico City (during Metallica's two-year-plus world tour behind their self-titled 1991 release). The videos contain a complete concert recorded at the Sports Arena in San Diego, California during the same tour, as well as a concert from their previous tour, in support of their breakthrough And Justice for All album. Name a classic from the band, and chances are it's here. "Enter Sandman," "Master of Puppets," "For Whom the Bell Tolls," "Seek & Destroy," "One," "Battery," "Creeping Death," the list goes on and on. If you're a serious Metallica fan, or just an aficionado of expertly played live heavy metal, Live Shit: Binge & Purge is definitely for you.
