"Yeah the vids are great however the 5.1 is very poor in most cases it just an additional guitar you hear overlayed and makes it sound stupid.
Going to leave my system to upmix as it does a better job imo
The censorship wtf is that about? this is metallica for christ sakes the fans deserve uncensored with a parental guidence sticker on it!
nowhere on the box does it say that they are censored.
i bought this being a fan back in the day when metallica knew how to rite great songs and shoot stunning videos and am well disapointed with it.
All the vids we know are there so this is a plus point as is the 2from1 as it it fantastic (i allready own the vhs video) and the upmix on this is not bad on this one.
As for it the really poor upmix to 5.1 on the rest of them should not have been done its really anoying that you get the odd guitar riff that was not there before.
As to recomending it well its dificult in my opinion as you can see uncut ones on late night tv but if you want to own them you cant!
Buy it if you are a collector and have to have it, dont buy it if you want to see the vids as they was meant to be shown."
Awesome greatest hits collection of videos, but beware this

"This is the collection of pretty much all of the Metallica videos from 1989 through 2004 (yeah, pretty obvious from the title, I know). So as a die hard Metallica fan since 1989 (the first time as a 13 year old, I saw the One video on MTV, I was just floored by the power of their music), how can I only give this comprehensive collection only 3 stars?
Well, don't get me wrong, the video quality is fine, sound is good on my 5.1 surround sound system. But the a number of the videos (Turn the Page, Whiskey in the Jar) as other reviewers have also noted, are the editted, censored version. Look, I'm old enough to have seen enough titties so it's not like I got this DVD to see tits, but it does bother me a bit that I don't get to see what the director/Metallica originally envisioned for their videos.
So this gets 3 stars from me, but it's not really like we have another option to get the uncensored version."

"This is the best DVD I have. I am a 38 year old female who loves Metallica! I have been a fan since age 20. Anyways, buy this! All the videos in one place. Perfect quality. Great price. You know you want it...
One problem, inside it said Metallica is:
James hetfield, Kirt Hammet, Lars Ulrich,(Robert trujillo.)
Metallica IS Jason Newsted...RIP Cliff."
