Album Notes:

Michael Kamen and Metallica came together to record a live album combining rock music and the symphony orchestra. The title “S&M” is short for “Symphony & Metallica.” Michael Kamen had worked with the band before on the original “Nothing Else Matters” in 1991. Metallica debuted two brand new songs during the symphonic shows (No Leaf Clover and - Human). A concert video is also available, featuring footage captured from the two nights in April 1999.

James: “Michael Kamen came to us with the idea almost two years ago. He’d done projects with other rock people, like David Bowie, Eric Clapton and Pink Floyd. He wanted to get a little more extreme, so he chose us. I'm sure there's something more extreme -- he could have picked, like, Graveworm -- but I think we were a pretty good choice. We said, “Hell, yeah.” You don't pass these things up. It took two years to pull together -- from the initial idea to deciding which orchestra to picking the songs.”

NO LEAF CLOVER

And it feels right this time
On his crash course with the big time
Pay no mind to the distant thunder
New day fills his head with wonder, boy

Says it feels right this time
Turned it round and found the right line
Good day to be alive, sir
Good day to be alive, he says

Then it comes to be that the soothing light at the end of your tunnel
Was just a freight train coming your way
Then it comes to be that the soothing light at the end of your tunnel
Was just a freight train coming your way

Don't it feel right like this
All the pieces fall to his wish
Sucker for that quick reward, boy
Sucker for that quick reward, they say

Then it comes to be that the soothing light at the end of your tunnel
Was just a freight train coming your way
Then it comes to be that the soothing light at the end of your tunnel
Was just a freight train coming your way
It's coming your way, it's coming your way, yeah
Here comes

Yeah, then it comes to be that the soothing light at the end of your tunnel
Was just a freight train coming your way

Then it comes to be, yeah
Then it comes to be, yeah
Then it comes to be, yeah
Then it comes to be, yeah

Then it comes to be, yeah
Then it comes to be, yeah
Then it comes to be, yeah
Then it comes to be, yeah

MINUS HUMAN

Don't you leave me, Father Time
Take me with you
Tell me, does your sun still shine
Come squeeze the world
And drip it down my throat again
Down my throat again

You got to breathe, man, breathe
Coming up for air
Breathe, man, breathe
Coming up for air

Touch me so I think I'm here
Skin my senses
Barely breathing, minus human
Just squeeze the world
And drip it down my throat again
Ooh, down my throat again

You got to breathe, man, breathe
Coming up for air
Breathe, man, breathe
Coming up for air

You got to breathe, man, breathe
Coming up for air
Breathe, man, breathe
Coming up for
