I too didn't much care for the album when i bought it...but...i listened to it a few months later and i LOVE IT. Give this album a chance for cryin out loud.
WE ALL DID THE SAME THING. We all bought this album after waiting for so long and were sooo anticipating this album...it'll have KILLER solos...faster riffs....faster tempos, huge double bass...back to the old metallica.
Have you ever gone into an action/comedy movie and expected it to be hilarious but got more action than comedy???
that's what happened here...
the movie was still really good...just not what you thought is was going to be.
That's what happened here. You all expected (like i said) another ride the lightning. You got something that anyone could've forseen. Metallica has never had 2 albums that are the same kinda music (except the loads).
They released this album...everyone got their first impressions and then they threw it in their pile of cd's and never listened to it again.
This album is GREAT!!!!!
1) Frantic - Good opener...i love the main riff. Catchy - 9/10
2) St. Anger - Title track. Great riff. Lars' double bass work on this song is awesome. I love when james screams "set it free!!!" good song. - 9/10
3)Some Kind of MOnster - One of the best on the album. Very heavy...very cool. the main riff is awesome. James really nails the vocals here. Very powerful song - 10/10
4)Dirty Window - another heavy song. once again the main riff is really cool. This is one of my favorite songs on the album as well. This song is heavy! - 10/10
5)Invisible Kid - It's not the best song on the album but it still kicks ass.Read more ›
Enter St. Anger, my first Metallica album. I am now a fan and will dabble in the back-catalog as a result of this garage-sounding, low-res album sent to us from a tortured soul. I have seen the documentary Metallica - Some Kind Of Monster (2004) and I understand the background and motivation for St. Anger. This is a back-to-basics hard rock album that is intended to be raw and spare. I get it and I relate. The snare drum that is much-talked about I understand completely and the drum's sound is integral to the album. Imagine U2's Sunday Bloody Sunday War (Rm) without the same drum. The drums on St. Anger are at once primal, like beating on an old garbage can lid, and somehow reminiscent of an old military band, making its procession down your street. This is a frantic call to arms, an 11th-hour plea for release from the monster that has taken control of our lives. I think you can fill in the blanks with your own monster and it all makes sense.
The guitar work is hard and raw, and Hetfield's broken-voiced lyrics render the work sincere. Stand-outs on this album are especially the first 4 tracks: Frantic, St. Anger, the monumental Some Kind of Monster, and Dirty Window.Read more ›
Highschool Syndrome: "The band doesn't sound the same as they did when I liked them in highschool, therefore they are sellouts and I don't like this album."
Even the harshest of critics would be hard-pressed to explain how St. Anger is a "sellout". An album recorded this harshly, with songs this aggressive by anyone else would get zero airplay. How is that selling out?
Perhaps by "selling out", some fans are referring to the lack of solos and the alternative, downtuned sounds on St. Anger. Unfortunatly the lack of solos is really a mistake. Kirk Hammett did record some very cool and appropriate solos for this album. Check out the movie Some Kind Of Monster for a glimpse at that. Every solo was cut, which Hammett felt was a mistake and so do I. As Hammett said in the movie, "Having no solos dates the album to THIS time (2003)". He was right.
Yes, the production by Bob Rock was definitely the wrong direction. He was overcompensating for what was perceived as overproduction on Load, Reload and Black. The band probably should have taken a production direction like they did on Garage Inc., but there's no point lamenting that. Bob Rock is my all-time favourite producer, and here he is also a writer, bassist, and defacto but temporary member of the band. The sound he created was so harsh that it is actually headache inducing to listen to St. Anger in one sitting. (And this is selling out?)
The songs contained herein are by and large pretty decent. The title track of course is brilliant, with a great video to match.Read more ›

If I had ONE issue with this album, is that every song is too long and the songs arn't complex enough to be over 5min long, nevermind the 8min that most of the songs run for. Read morePublished on Jan. 24 2009 by For the Record
