A Year and a Half of More Hair

"Since seeing Some Kind of Monster, I gained a new level of respect for a band that I've loved for 20 years. I did kind of lose interest there for a couple of albums (you know the ones) but ever since the release of Death Magnetic I've had a resurgence of love for Metallica and the time came for some nostalgia...so I got A Year and a Half. This is a great trip down memory lane and a great doco as well, with the recording of the Black Album covered in great detail as well as the subsequent tour. After Some Kind of Monster and the Live Binge set, this is the best Metallica DVD you can get, as it shows a band on the cusp of becoming one of the biggest bands in the world and covers an album process in detail. I wish they had done a doco for every album they have released. This is also hairy Metallica, Lars brushes his hair aside every five seconds and James looks much more like the angry young man we all know and love as much as the short haired older man we have come to respect and admire. Buy this DVD and then watch Some Kind of Monster."
