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!

I love Metallica, but my husband doesn't so I was thrilled to find this cd. It's still all the Metallica songs I love, just taken down a notch or two. Also, keep in mind that there are no words on this cd (just music). For a die-hard fan like me that's no problem, I just sing along anyway. I can't wait for my baby to be born in 3 weeks so I can start to introduce him to one of his mom's favorite bands.

When our son was born, my good friend bought this as a present for him. We'd never heard of these CDs before we got Metallica -- and it is a definite favorite to listen to in our home. While Hubby is a die hard fan, I hadn't listened to much of their music before this album; I absolutely love "Nothing Else Matters"... and between this CD and the Rockband video game, well... our family gets our fill of Metallica for sure now.

I highly recommend this CD, especially if you are a fan already and want to introduce your kids to something a bit different, and I definitely look forward to getting more of them for our new baby due in just a couple of weeks.
