Holy s**t, this is the worst live verson Ive ever heard!

I kinda love that they released a version w/James f**king up for some reason. Like they aren't afraid to laugh at themselves.

Wow, I can't believe they would release something this crappy!

Where's kirk? Up to the solo the treble guitar is seriously lacking. Ruins the song.

Dammit I loved Metallica back in the day but James' voice just isn't the same. Horrible thing really.

It sucks they have a recording of this and let people listen to it. Metallica is my favorite band of all time but this was definitely recorded in the "Dark Ages" of Metallica...

definitly not as good as the original funny how he forgets the words though

they really haven't plyed this song in a while. maybe they should practice , get back to their roots.

WOW! This has to be the weakest, sloppiest, and overall WORST version of this song recorded to date! For one of their most badass songs, this recording makes it sound like crap! Not just the engineering, but the performance for the most part, SUCKS BIG TIME! I've been a Metallica fan since I was 9- I'm 33 now and I am disgusted with this version. I don't even want to hear the rest of this show.....

This is their worst live show probably ever. Metallica is in my mind the best band to see live. S&M was amazing, with the full symphony along with it. Symphonic Metallica is almost overkill of AWESOMENESS
Report as inappropriate
definitely sound like the guitars are tuned lower than original, maybe from the fact james voice isn't what it used to be.

Wow, all this pointless criticism. The only person at fault was their old retarded producer bob rock who is now gone!

Dammit, Now I cant remember the f**king words either! Thanx Jaymz!

the origional version was way better. it seems after black album metallica started to fail. i think it has something to do with trujillo thier new bassist. :(
Report as inappropriate
They rock when I see them in concert. I have no f**king clue why they would record & sell a bad performance. It's easy. Record all you performances and pick a good one!
Report as inappropriate
BTW, it's ride the LIGHTNING, not ride the f**king LIGHTING. Or does James just like the stage lighting rig that f**king much?

This song is a prime example of the effects of the crapificatio n of Metallica. Injustice. They suck my hairy nads.

i think its still good, not like dave did it but still good, they may have had to lower the guitars because he couldnt get his voice high enough
Report as inappropriate
Guitars are tuned too low. i love metallica live forgetting the words is hilarious. i think he really did forget them.
Report as inappropriate
no, not still good. its not the same as when it was released. nothing is anymore. plus the guitar is different. it no longer has the epic feel
Report as inappropriate
still good

i love the part about forgetting the words. Anyone who knows the band knows they've played this song literally thousands of times, so anyone who thought he actually forgot the words is an idiot. They have a goofy sense of humor, thats just an example of it.
