Six long years after the release of ReLoad, Metallica come back on the scene to show their 8th studio album, St. Anger. Many of you have almost lost all the respect for this band since the release of the black album, many others hate them because of Load and ReLoad and some others have now lost every interest in their music. Actually, what can you all expect from the band who left its early amazing style to get fame and glory on MTV?

Metallica's 2003 release, St. Anger, will most likely always be considered the low point of the bands discography. I'm not sure if I can completely agree with this. I personally believe Load and Reload are worse albums. Mind you, St. Anger is absolutely not a fantastic release. It rambles, has some bad tracks, and sometimes you wonder "what are they doing?" (listen to Hetfield's moans in Invisible Kid). But the album does have energy, something the band has had on about 3 tracks on the last 2 studio discs.

Staff pick by
Thryce

18.01.2011 So the biggest metal band on the planet is turning 30 this year.

As the story goes, back in 1981, some dude called James Hetfield answered a newspaper ad by a certain Lars Ulrich... and the legend was born. 30 years later, the success story that is Metallica still remains unequaled.

Happy 30th birthday, Metallica!

Rating: 1 I give it 1 only because there is no 0. I would really love to give LuLu -10 though.
Nick K. - 18.06.2013 at 14:57  
  Not the worst Album of all time, but pretty close.
Lião - 03.11.2013 at 06:14  
  It's not THAT bad! Actually, the title track is enjoyable and there's few interesting moments in Dirt Window and Invisible Kid.
Nemo Atkins - 15.11.2013 at 20:30  
  There was a good idea behind St Anger (get back to Metallica's metal roots while also throwing in some punk cues), but I think the way it was executed was the thing that really let it down. The production is worse than you'd get on a demo (and those aren't MEANT to sound polished) and most of the songwriting is weak (I like "Frantic" and the title track, but the rest of the album...I don't talk about it).

If they'd thought about the production more and written the songs better, this might have been a good album. But, judging it by what it is and not what it isn't...yeah, it's pretty bad. It's not the worst thing you can listen to, but that doesn't mean it's a good album either.

Now that Lulu's created a new low for Metallica, I think I might listen to this.

Was thinking about it and I'm listening to it right now for the first time

Let's see how utterly bad it can be

Edit: It's bad, fuck.

It has always been the same story, all Metallica albums are different, except the Reload, for me the worst, and an absolute disappointment, and it is precisely because the record is the most similar at the previous album (Load). But this is Metallica, a band that can do anything and always with high quality, because they (like it or not) have proven they are great composers above all, so many great songs (yes, including The unnamed feeling ), their albums are so different, and so unfairly criticized... all of this is what precisely makes great at Metallica. Fortunately, I have the luck that I love her albums, for me are very good and I like them, leaving aside the style of the album, and I'm someone who says that the best albums for me are ...And Justice for all and Master of puppets.

They dont understand how you can put a 9 or 10 rating, and I can not understand how this disc is in the Bottom 20 albums of all time (3) Honestly, the album is closer to nine rating, so I think that you have many prejudices with Metallica, unfortunately because the Master of puppets is one of the best albums in history, and you can see many people frustrated, Metallica is much more than a thrash metal band, else not would be Metallica, probably the best metal band of all time.

Liberates the mind, if really you like Metallica.

Wow finally someone who understands me

In this site maybe, i know a lot of people of my environment around me, who really like this álbum very much. As you said, an album very enjoyable, with nice riffs and rage, with the quality Made in Metallica .

that, instead of postponing the tappings of the album, just went with it anyway and made this big pile of Rhyno shit.

Rating: 2 I wonder if they re-recorded it with better drums whether it would be better?
Lit. - 05.05.2014 at 08:08  
  Haha. Wow. I'm halfway through my first ever time listening to it, and I already like it better than the sterile and lifeless Death Magnetic and the poppy, redundant radio-rock of the Black Album. Nice and raw energy with riffs galore and steel drums that sound like a pissed-off dude banging on some trash-cans ala Slipknot-style, but it's still catchy at points.

It's certainly not 8 or 9 quality nor on level of Metallica's first couple of albums, and it's got moments that make even me cringe, but it's sure as hell not their worse. I'd give it a 6.5 or a solid 7. The low scores have got to be fanboys uber-sore at the stylistic change, but that can't be it because the adequate to sub-adequate Load twins have a higher score, as does the Black Album.

Not really. I mean, my opinion is that St. Anger is a bad album but I dont usually overreact to other peoples p.o.v.
I'm no hater nor a fanboy, I just dont accept the fact that some defenders use the "The band were going through some big personal problems" card as an excuse to the somehow poor sound and quality of it (again, this is just my opinion). Thats not a valid Argument. If they had personal problems, they should postpone the production of the album, like any band would.

I mean that people tend to overreact to other people's opinion, and in some cases, there are a few which coments will create a discussion almost everytime (Lit. being one of them).

Rating: 4 I guess Lit listening to this record after a while and he instantly connects to it. You know that feeling, where you hated your toy worse than scum and suddenly after 6 to 7 yrs, you see it and feel good about it. That's where Lit is doing his swimming.

Well, it's his opinion. Can't argue over that.

other than the Loads i"d rate every Metallica album higher than their self titled
to me St Anger is a major improvement over the albums before it, because it has what the name suggests

Rating: 7 The only album I might place St. Anger above, is Reload, but even that is a close run thing...

Rating: 9 I just gave it a higher rating.

Every year it grows a little bit more.

I started with 5/10..

Intresting............
deadone - 19.05.2014 at 02:10  
Rating: 2 I watched Some Kind Of Monster on the weekend and that inspired me to try St Anger again.


And I still think it completely sucks - the drum sound is one of the most irritating things I've ever heard in my life. I'd rather listen to roadworks.

The songs are terrible and some of the lyrics are beyond woeful as is James delivery which doesn't fit the music IMO.

There's the odd good riff but a lot of irritating ones too.

So it stays a 2.


Just my $0.02.
