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!

Purchased this to play for my daughter when she was an infant/toddler. Exposing her to great music without the lyrics. I think it was a great investment because she has become a lover of music and will listen to most anything.

AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME! I think my husband and I enjoy this even more than our baby. I catch myself listening to this CD even when my son is not in the car. Very soothing and relaxing and the tunes take me back to my youth. Love it!

Is Lars going to complain about this like he did about Napster? This Rockabye CD made me more of a metallic fan since we could play this in our son's nursery. Sharing the musical experience was very cool. When he gets older, he will move into the OG version with our delight.

...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...
