If you’re not tired of Enter Sandman yet, this album isn’t for you.
St Anger dares to be different, thus why many hate it. It is IMHO Metallica’s best album to date, proving they still had the fire in them 20+years into their careers. You all keep listening to Enter Sandman over and over whilst stoned. I’ll be enjoying St Anger.
Drum clang is actually the only good thing!
Ah the infamous drum clang of the snare. It is actually used often in extreme underground rock/metal. Its the songs that are lacking. Its actually cool that the most famous metal band used an underground sound for the snare
Is great I don’t know why many people hate this album
Buy old school Metallica.
This album was trash.
You Won’t Be Missing Much If You Skip It...
I think that this album is okay. However, it doesn’t necessarily fit as a Metallica album, similar to how I feel about Load and Reload (although I think Load and Reload are both an EASY 4.5 stars). Lars definitely needs to fix his snare. Also, for the record, I’m not one to hate on bands who change with the times. Pantera used to be a GLAM METAL band in the 80’s. So long as your music is still good music. There are a few good tracks but like the title states, you won’t be missing much if you skip this one (especially if you’re a fan of traditional Metallica, if you are, go check out their new stuff).
You have to be shallow...
To dismiss this album because of the snare and ‘production’. Almost twenty years after it’s release, and almost fifteen years since I listened to this album, I did this week and I have to say while Justice will always be my favorite album of theirs, St. Anger is so unique and so emotional, and also HEAVY, it should not be shunned like so many of us Metallica fans do.
Would you shun Justice for it’s’ subpar production? No- you’d miss out on some of the best material they have ever made.
I ‘got’ St. Anger now as a 30 year old male who first heard St. Anger when it came out when he was 12-13 years old. It clicked. I have listened to so much music now in my life, played so many more technical and heavier riffs on guitar, analyzed so much music that as I come back to St. Anger after listening to say, Gojira or The Contortionist, I love what I am hearing in a way I simply could not have done when I was 13.
I always loved this album.
Trash listen to megadeth
Classic garbage can snare
All in all...
They have a style change here that is clear and they tend to do things here they havent done before but thats what makes it such a special part of the libray. Frantic, first off, while definitely different from the usual you can tell they put in hardwork and passion into it. it just really shows and is a great song because of it. Same goes for st. Anger but they dont differ as much.
F*ck the haters.
