Great content - Broadcasted sound quality, horrible
24 April 2009 | by joseph-waltsSee all my reviews

I recently had the pleasure of stumbling upon a showing of this on TV. I have been a fan of Metallica ever since I was introduced to metal. They will always be on the top of the list for me no matter how many albums they may release with an overly compressed dynamic range.

The presentation of this sort-of "Rockumentary" is absolutely something I would expect from MTV. I thoroughly enjoyed all the songs covered by other bands for some of Metallica's most famous songs. Korn did an excellent job with "One". But with usual MTV fashion there is a lot left to be desired. Namely with the audio quality. I almost had to turn it off because the audio quality of the entire show was so bad I just cringed the entire time.

Does anyone know if there is a version that I can view that has better than 92Kbps compressed audio quality? I have no problem with paying for a DVD considering the excellent content that it would contain.
