    “good points: metallica brings yet another great album...”

    Written on: 29/10/2009 by metallica666 (1 review written)

    good points: metallica brings yet another great album that sounds great and has depth. also, this may be their most important album. fighting among the band and rehabilitation for james were inspiration for most of the songs and really allowed them to release their feelings. From fast, thrash songs like Frantic, to heavy goodness like St. Anger, and and beautiful depth in The Unnamed Feeling, this album should most definetly be respected among fans.

    bad points: Understandably, the band was… Read Full Review

    “Metallica made this album out of desperation. They...”

    Written on: 03/09/2006 by hickc (21 reviews written)

    Metallica made this album out of desperation. They were in a vulnerable state after losing Jason Newsted, James's rehabilitation and the legal battle with Napster. People were beginning to question them, and confused, they attempted to release an album to convince themselves as much as the fans. The only problem is that a great album cannot be released when the band is in such a state. This is reflected in the songs. Many of them have an unfinished and raw sound. The lyrics are terrible showing… Read Full Review

    “Metallica, St. Anger - "Could I have my wasted days...”

    Written on: 28/12/2004 by GiantElectric (24 reviews written)

    Metallica, St. Anger - "Could I have my wasted days back?" Hetfield growls on the opening `Frantic`... "Could we all have our wasted money back...?" We all scream in responsive unison. I squirmed in shock after hearing this album but understood, in fact; this has some diverse artistic integrity behind it. An effort by Metallica to destroy metal and set the clock back to zero. The boys have decided to try eliminating the genre & bring thousands of inspired copycat clones to their knees with… Read Full Review

    “Metallica, St. Anger - Ride the Lighting, Master of...”

    Written on: 09/07/2004 by marknittany (1 review written)

    Metallica, St. Anger - Ride the Lighting, Master of Puppets, And Justice for All and Black are the best metal albums ever and Master might be one of the best albums ever period. These guys were gods and were leaps and bounds ahead of every metal band out there. I even bought Load and, even though I was dissapointed, I liked it. I was not into Reload at all because it was poor. St. Anger is not even an album. It sounds like they came home drunk one night and decided to record them playing… Read Full Review

    “Metallica have been legends within the heavy metal...”

    Written on: 02/03/2004 by basskater (1 review written)

    Metallica have been legends within the heavy metal music scene for years and years. The new generation even familiar with their old music. So you can imagine my excitement upon hearing that they were bringing out a new album, St. Anger. So come release day I rushed out eager to buy and hear this latest dose of heavy yet melodic guitar music from the metal gods… Read Full Review

    “Oy. I expect more from pioneers. To make a long review...”

    Written on: 05/10/2003 by possums (2 reviews written)

    Oy. I expect more from pioneers. To make a long review short, the Metallica crew decided to "write for themselves." James Hetfield stated that there are "no songs for chicks." Sorry dude, there aren't any songs for guys, either. Plain and simple, this album doesn't deliver. At all. Rob Trujillo's a great bassist, a big step over Jason Newsted, but still can't touch Cliff Burton. Then again, no one can. And what is this horsefeathers about no solos? "They don't go with the songs." I was thinking… Read Full Review

    You said in the good points of the Metallica St. Anger album"...Rob Trujilo"; I am not sure if you realised, but he joined the band after the completion of the album, and had nothing to do with St. Anger.

    “On first listen i hated it. plain and simple. But it...”

    Written on: 07/07/2003 by Chris. (1 review written)

    On first listen i hated it. plain and simple. But it has grown on me. It's still not on a par with any of the late 80's era material (or maybe it's my rose tinted glasses). But it makes 'Load' and 'Re-load' look like the 90% rubbish they were. ('Hero of the day' and 'Mama said' excepted). One area that i think needs work is the production. Admittedly i'm not a fan of the 'Raw, unproduced' school of production. But the drums sound as if they were recorded, not in another room, but in another… Read Full Review

    There is no way that you can slag off load or reload. Its the ime when they started working as a band to produce a song rather than a wall of guitar popularised in the 80's.

    Mmmmmm......You know nothing. 'Load' and 'Reload' are dire. You're in a minority of 1 on that score I'm afraid. Go out and buy 'Master of Puppets' and '..And justice for all' and listen to 'em.. a lot. Then throw your copies of 'Load' and 'Reload' into the bin. Actually you'd better burn 'em, just incase someone else finds 'em.

    “Metallica bring us yet another stunning album, with...”

    Written on: 04/07/2003 by Jason. (1 review written)

    Metallica bring us yet another stunning album, with more shocks than expected. At first play you will notice that there are no solos or melody what so ever. Those looking forward to another black album will be knocked back in dispare. However its an album of many hidden dethps. Complex sound layering and structure will mislead you at first, but after a few plays the music will reveal its sectrets. be open minded when listening and let the album bloom in your mind, feel the music as a world and… Read Full Review

    Jdl1986's Response to 113118_Jason.'s Review

    Written on: 23/09/2003

    I totally agree i wasn't sure what to expect at first but it is so much better than some people rate it, they need to respect metallica for again changing direction(i.e load/reload and possibly s&m) but they always keep their roots strong. Not their best album obviously but you have to respect their dedication.(i saw them at the leeds festival UK and they were just quality)

    Hickc's Response to 113118_Jason.'s Review

    Written on: 30/10/2006

    I totally disagree with this review. St. Anger to me is a very poor excuse of an album from Metallica. I understand that there were circumstances surrounding this album, but it doesn't change the fact that it just plain sucks. Listening to each uninspired song is a chore, done only through loyalty to Metallica. All songs sound the same, and there is no variation in the sounds and melodies. The production is woeful, particularly the drums and lack of solos. Lyrics are poor; just listen to "Invisible Kid".
    <br>
    <br>St. Anger is Metallica's lowest selling album by a lot, and there is a reason for that. At concerts they rarely play a song from this album, which shows the band themselves know it sucks. I blame Bob Rock mainly though, since he played bass and actually shared some writing credits, "shudder". Through watching the making of the black album DVD, I realise that Bob Rock had a huge influence on Metallica's direction as a band. He alone destroyed Metallica and this album, in their time of vulnerability. I'm just so thankful they sacked him for this next album. It was the best move they ever made!
