Product Description

Exit light, enter night. The heavy metal sounds of Metallica's best-known anthems have been turned into shimmering lullabies for your little metalhead pride and joy. We have traded the guitars and drums for chimes and harop, turned down the volume from an eleven to a two and made the bed ourselves. Say your prayers little one. Tonight the sandman will be gently rocking you to sleep.

It's a funny thing with Rockabye Baby's Lullaby Renditions of Metallica--the disc is both all about the music and it's not. Consider it: on the one hand, here is a righteous, fully recognizable assortment of vintage Metallica tunes, including "Master of Puppets," "Enter Sandman," and "Nothing Else Matters." On the other, what's to stop a suburban massage parlor from passing it off as another generic, therapeutically new-age soundtrack to release tension by? Not a lot. The point being that this is a strangely versatile disc, but one no Metallica-loving new parent should be without. Starting, appropriately enough, at "One," producer and performer Michael Armstrong reduces Kirk Hammett's once rib-crushing riffs to xylophone and toy piano; "Fade to Black" becomes powder-puff pink, "(Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth" becomes more like "(Band-Aid) Kissing a Boo-Boo." Somewhat miraculously, what once was suitable listening for leather-wearers only becomes music to fasten Pampers by. Enjoyably. Upping the gift-appeal factor is Metallica's inarguably cool liner notes: scissors, string, tape, and a hole punch turns them into a heavy-metal mobile to hang over baby's bed. --Tammy La Gorce

Tonight I gave my husband this CD as a birthday gift from our soon-to-be born son. He has a handful of Metallica CDs so I was hoping he'd think it was cute. He LOVED it! He laughed outloud as he did a quick listen of the first 15 seconds of each song (his normal protocol with any new CD), and then he went back and listened to the entire CD all the way through and kept telling me, "This is awesome, honey!" Baby or not...he said this is his new cure for insomnia, as the CD is totally mellow. He even took the CD with him to show one of his friends! This gift was a WINNER!

Not only is the concept of this and the other Rockabye Baby albums by Michael Armstrong pure genius, but the music itself is beautiful, artful, and very enjoyable! My husband and I just had our first child, and are both big fans of old-school rock and alternative, and both also get very annoyed with the tunes most baby bouncers, swings and toys have to offer.

Listening to the Lullaby Renditions of Metallica is very soothing for both baby and adults!

This is a great concept. I dont know if i got this more for me or for my son, but he sleeps well when i play this for him. If you're a fan of any of the bands used to create these CDs and have to buy a gift for a new baby or even your own, i highly recommend this.

Beware those minor chords though, they still can sound a little creepy, but it wouldnt be metallica without it :)

I would write the same reviews for the Beatles and Led Zeppelin versions of this as well.

Not sure if my son cares that this isnt twinkle twinkle little star, but I know I sure do. We have the crib in our room for a while and keep this CD going through the night. Highly recommend this for those of you who like something different. Looking at Nirvana or Nine Inch Nails next. Awesome!

...doesn't get any better than this!!! I'm 50-years old and don't mind a few Metallica songs anyway - but this is so much sweeter. Gave as a baby gift and it was liked by the parents. Unique gift...

My husband and I both enjoyed listening to Metallica in our younger years, so we bought this for our almost four year old son (who loves music). He listens to it as he's falling asleep nearly every night. He's very into being a "big boy" these days, so he likes that he's not listening to "baby" songs anymore. And, we enjoy listening to the songs as well. It's a nice change from the traditional lullaby.

Amazing CD ..... if you're thinking of getting any of the CD's from this line - this is definitely the one to get. We listen to it almost every night and it calms our little one down every time. Mom and Dad like it too :)

As a MetallicA fan I was excited to be buying my young daughters these calming renditions of MetallicA songs. They have been impressively re-imagined and composed and it's amazing such frenetic, loud music can be transposed in such a way.

My only wish was that some of the songs were a bit longer, or that instead of favouring the 'hit songs' they had re-worked some of MetallicA's more musical numbers or perhaps done some medleys. But that aside, it is still a fantastic CD that all the family listens to when we need to chill out!

Lullabye Metallica?
R. D., you TOTALLY missed the point. This CD is great for young babies. They have the rest of their life to listen to the "real" stuff.

Metallica are the WORST POSERS EVER!!!!!!
This isn't from Metallica. This is done by some guy who also does lullaby CDs of Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, and other classic groups. Are they all sellouts too?
