After 1988’s …And Justice for All, Metallica pared down its progressive, heavy metal sound. During the ’90s, the band’s studio releases grew slicker and more produced, resulting in mostly radio-friendly, good ol’ boy metal. By the end of the decade, Metallica was established as the pioneer of modern metal, but the band hadn’t done anything innovative, arguably, in ten years. In April 1999, the group performed two concerts with the San Francisco Symphony, and the result was S&M, a two-disc collection of the concerts. Overall, the album successfully pairs violin strings with guitar strings, but it’s no surprise that the best tracks here are the older songs; their multi-layered, compositional style works well with symphonic arrangements. “Master of Puppets,” “Call of the Ktulu,” “One,” and “For Whom the Bell Tolls” sound richer and fuller with violin, trumpet, clarinet, harp, trombone, and flute accompaniments, but “Sad but True,” “Devil’s Dance,” and especially “Of Wolf and Man” range from haphazard and melodramatic to uninspired. S&M definitely has its moments, and not just with the pre-Black Album material: “Fuel” surpasses the furious pumping energy of the studio version, “Hero of the Day” stays poignant throughout, and “Until It Sleeps” has a wonderfully sinister feel. James Hetfield maintains his madman persona from beginning to end, laughing maniacally and grunting and growling at all the right moments. Overall, the symphony adds a macabre, ghoulish atmosphere — it all sounds like a Broadway freak show or a revved-up Danny Elfman nightmare. Which is exactly what a Metallica album should sound like, even if every song isn’t the best (or most appropriate) in the band’s catalog.

Ride the Lightning is the second studio album by American heavy metal band Metallica, released on July 27, 1984, by the independent record label Megaforce Records. The album was recorded in three weeks with producer Flemming Rasmussen at the Sweet Silence Studios in Copenhagen, Denmark. The artwork, based on a concept by the band, depicts an electric chair being struck by lightning flowing from the band logo. The title was taken from a passage in Stephen King’s novel The Stand. Although rooted in the thrash metal genre, the album showcased the band’s musical growth and lyrical sophistication. This was partly because bassist Cliff Burton introduced the basics of music theory to the rest of the band and had more input in the songwriting. Instead of relying heavily on fast tempos as on its debut Kill ‘Em All, Metallica broadened its approach by employing acoustic guitars, extended instrumentals, and more complex harmonies. The overall recording costs were paid by Metallica’s European label Music for Nations because Megaforce was unable to cover it. It is the last album to feature songwriting contributions from former lead guitarist Dave Mustaine, and the first to feature contributions from his replacement, Kirk Hammett. At 47 minutes, it is Metallica’s shortest studio album.
