Background: Released in 1999, S&M was a live collaboration between Metallica and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, with Michael Kamen conducting.

The album reached #2 on the U.S. album charts. gave S&M a 3 star review:

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. …. 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.
