A must see for the fans!
21 June 2003 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

This is truly a must see documentary for the fans of Metallica. It explains the whole history behind the Black Album up until the decision of doing the S&M album. It explains the why and when of each song from The Black Album. A true classic!
