Process of weeding out, part 1.5

Apocalyptica/Plays Metallica by Four Cellos

I don't know when I got this, but it must've been pre-1999, since that was when Metallica's "S&M" CD came out, and I remember thinking "That's been done" since I already had this. It's a cool idea and all, but after listening to it a few times, I left it alone. The artwork is unintentionally amusing, especially the booklet picture of four arms holding four cello bows through four square holes in a wall. I also like the Reservoir Dogs -esque shot of the musicians walking four abreast, each carrying a cello case, wearing sunglasses and all black. Serious musicians. I'd do the same damned thing if I could play an(y) instrument.
