Product Description

This CD package includes a special live DVD. The performance, filmed and recorded - as Metallica likes to say - in 'shitty 5.1 sound, balls out - features the band playing all tracks in sequence from St. Anger. The idea to create such a unique offer wa

Amazon.com

Never underestimate the regenerative powers of Metallica. Following the stripped-down Load and Re-Load, they've returned to the raw, vitriolic savagery of their earlier canon, using 1984's Ride the Lightning as a template for St. Anger. The title track provides the psychic lynchpin of the album by combining the bombast and defiance of the band's earliest high-water marks with more deliberate lyrics and emotional nakedness. Equally cathartic is "Some Kind of Monster," a lumbering beast of a song that declares, "This is the voice of silence no more." Despite that claim, there's an economy to these lyrics; James Hetfield's raw-toothed growl only occasionally punctuates the menacing soundscapes. In fact, "Dirty Windows," the standout track here, is a shimmering five-minute instrumental that's free of the baroque trappings that sometimes clutter the Metallica landscape. --Jaan Uhelszki

Format: Audio CD
No, this album isn't an avante-garde Autechre-inspired IDM fest, but it's probably the closest Metallica will ever come.
When my friend asked me today how St. Anger is, my first response was "F----in' weird...but really great." Then I thought about it, and it hit me--St. Anger is, with the exception of Radiohead's Kid A from a couple years ago, probably the strangest, most experimental and unexpected album to come from a multi-million selling act in the last decade (or more).
I had read many reviews and responses to the album before I heard it, and they all said basically the same thing: "Heavy, fast, complex, dirty, grimy, a return to the trashing Metallica of old." That's only partially true. It's heavy, it's complex, it's DEFINITELY dirty and grimy.
But what I never read from anyone's review was the pure WEIRDNESS of it all. You have the country-inflected vocal harmonies shoved in the middle of the goliath "Frantic", the half-dead lead guitar sound at the beginning of "Some Kind Of Monster," the almost Moog sounding octaving guitar on the chorus (?) of "Sweet Amber," the double-time drumming and half-time singing on the verses (?) of "All Within My Hands," the simply indescribable vocal stylings in the bridge (?) of "The Unnamed Feeling" -- the list goes on. This is Metallica at their most experimental.
Most shocking of everything on the disc, however, is the recording quality (or lack thereof). Who would've thought that the band who gave us the pristine sounds of Load and the Black Album could give us this album that could easily be described as "Lo fi"? It took me a song or two to get used to, but after sitting through the whole disc, it all made sense.

After having the evening to review my thoughts, I really just can't believe this album. I literally just don't even understand how this happened. I distinctly remember reading an interview or two regarding the release of this, and how it was supposed to be like 'Justice' and how they were going back to longer, heavier songs. I'll shamefully admit that a small part of me that was anticipating this album, hoping for an ointment to the infected wounds Metallica has left me with over the last few years.
I literally can't get past the first song, each time expecting it to sound better than it did the last time I heard it.
It sounds like this whole album was recorded in two hours in someone's basement. I wasn't the biggest fan of the black album, and I didn't even bother with Load, but at least the production was good.
I'm literally stunned at how noone at any point in the recording process spoke up to mention that the music on St. Anger sounds like a train wreck.
The songs are terrible and make no sense, the lyrics are redundant and pointless, the playing is sloppy and occasionally off time with itself, Hetfield's voice sounds AWFUL, and most importantly, I feel like something is wrong with my speakers when I listen to it, because the production and mixing are all noisy and messed up.
I'm disappointed that the lowest rating Amazon has is 1 Star, because the assumption with one star is that there is something of any value on this album at all, which there is not. There really should be a "zero star" rating, or even "negative star" ratings for albums like this, which rise above and beyond simply being poorly written, but are also poorly executed as well.
Metallica doesn't have to worry about this album being pirated at all. This album [stinks].

St Anger is the 'Jar Jar Binks' of metal albums.

This must be the worst album yet, with bad production, no solos, a very annoying snare drum, intentional signing out of tune, and of course no inspiration at all. I'm not against using Pro Tools, but not when you don't know how to use it and make the msuic sound choppy, and I don't mean Guitar chops, since none were to be found. It looks like Jason was smart quitting, since he won't have to deal with the backlash. It's basically the same rythem track repeated over and over. There trying to be Nu-Metal, but someone should tell them to get a clue.

WOW, like most reviews here I am very disappointed with this CD being a Metallica fan since Day 1. Yes, I embrace changes bands take after 20 years or so, especially super-bands like Metallica. After 3 or 4 spins on this loser of a CD, I just could not find anything I really liked - at all. Lousy drumming (c'mon Lars!), second rate guitar work (no solos - yuck), no bass really to speak of, and almost embarrasing vocals from James...I can go for a vocalist trying to do something different, but some of it here sounds like what he might have been screeching in the rehab center when he was withdrawing from Jagermeister...give him a freaking shot NOW - these guys were just better metal-masters with a buzz on - sorry!

Bottom line - some say this is for 'Metallica fans only'. Translated - charity. Give 15 bucks to some starving kid with flys on his face before you give these rich old metal masters pension money! Maybe this will send a message to our heroes - Get out a do the kick-a CD that we KNOW you have in you!
