This cd is great for die-hard Slipknot and System of a down fans, who just cant get enough, and love hearing new live material. If you’re a casual Slipknot fan, I would reccomend not giving this album much thought becasuse it’s kind of sloppy, and the singer almost sounds as if he’s catching his breath while trying to keep up on “Heretic Anthem.” Slipknot was the headliner on the tour, and they only put 3 songs on this cd. System of a Down’s performance on the album was good, but once again, I thought they should have put more than 3 songs on it. Their guitarist is amazing, and I remember from attending the Grand Rapids, Michigan show that he did a long solo while the other guys in the band left the stage…and that’s not included on the album (I’m sure he did it in Chicago, where this was recorded also) which is dissapointing. I cant really say much about Mudvayne’s songs on the album, because I dont really care for them anyway, so I wont give a biased review. There’s only 2 songs, which once again, is really weak. American Head Charge and No One were the rotating openers on the tour, and they each have 1 song on the cd. All in all, it IS a good album…the reason for my 3-star review is strictly for the lack of content. I think that 10 total songs from 5 bands is really weak.
Convenient new size…Still f***ing huge! Metallica\\\’s Live Sh*t: Binge & Purge – the unprecendented box set featuring three complete concerts on three CD\\\’s and three VHS tapes, more than eight hours of live Metallica – is now being made available on three CD\\\’s and two DVD\\\’s at a special price. This colossal box has sold an incredible 613,000 copies since its 1993 release, and this reissue is sure to swell the ranks of those blown away by these shows. Nothing gets left behind — the complete original 72-page full-color book is even included on DVD 2, and the commemorative backstage pass and scary guy stencil are enclosed as well. It\\\’s a one-two-three punch unmatched by any band, before or since, and the perfect gift for that special someone who needs their ass kicked hard by the world\\\’s greatest rock & roll band.This enormous live box set is a necessity for the hardcore Metallifan, though casual fans (if Metallica has any casual fans) might be scared off. It contains material up to and including the self-titled \\\”black\\\” album, including concert favorites \\\”Creeping Death\\\” and \\\”Seek & Destroy,\\\” as well as classics like \\\”For Whom the Bell Tolls,\\\” \\\”Welcome Home (Sanitarium),\\\” and \\\”Fade to Black.\\\” There are also a couple of ripping-fast solos from Jason Newsted and Kirk Hammett, and covers of \\\”Last Caress,\\\” \\\”Am I Evil?\\\” and \\\”Stone Cold Crazy.\\\” The videos are from a 1992 San Diego concert and a 1989 stop on the Damaged Justice tour in Seattle; both are guaranteed to turn any fan who hasn\\\’t had the considerable pleasure of hearing this seminal metal band live green with envy. Pricey, but very highly recommended. –Genevieve Williams

i give this 5 stars ok look ooooooo nooooo the sound isnt that good umm let me see its form a live concert! acorse they cant record it good its live duhhhh i tihnk this is a great cd from SOAD to SlipKnoT to MuDvAyNe its all good!
this record was freaking awesome but why so short atleast to make it long they could of added Rammstein but what has happened legal dispute between them two but it would of been better if rammstien was in the record but it is quiet qoog as it is . but you be the judge of this record .
i noticed the two mudvayne tracks were taken from the live dosage 50 dvd which was recorded in peoria, illinois in 2001.
Okay, every track on this is great. However, this barely hits the 30 minute mark. They should have had 4 tracks a piece for Slipknot and System Of a Down, 3 for Rammstein (who they were planning on putting on, but for some reason didn’t), 2 for Mudvayne (they only were on for half the tour), 3 for No One (they did the whole tour, starting as openers, but taking Mudvayne’s spot when they had to leave due to KuD’s health problems), and 2 for American Head Charge (who did half the tour as openers). That would have made a full length CD that gives proper due to each band. Unfortunately, Columbia left out Rammstein and made each band have less tracks than they deserved. The tracks that are on this album are great though, which is why I gave it four stars. It really should be 3 1/2, but I rounded up.
