AllMusic Review by

Metallica's double-disc DVD of S&M presents their surprisingly successful collaboration with the San Francisco Symphony in its two-and-a-half-hour entirety. The concert itself has its highs ("Master of Puppets," "Until It Sleeps," "The Call of Ktulu," and "One") and lows ("Sad but True," "Devil's Dance," and "Of Wolf and Man"), but the discs' multiple angles, making-of documentary, and interviews make S&M more than just a live album translated to video. Different edits of "No Leaf Clover" at the end of the set add another clever feature to this well-crafted, interactive collection, which may only appeal to hardcore fans but gives them plenty to appreciate. [S&M was also released in a DVD set.]
