Since their inception in 1981, Metallica have gone from an underground heavy-metal band to one of the most successful acts in the world, with an intensely loyal if not rabid fanbase. Their relevance is undeniable as evidenced by their ability to sell out stadiums and arenas worldwide while continuing to sell millions of albums with each release -- a feat no other band in history has sustained ...

Product Description


St. Anger shows that we should 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 their template. 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, Amazon.com

5.0 out of 5 stars It's named ST ANGER for a reason 18 May 2012
Format:Audio CD
I'll admit - I wasn't a fan of this album for... well, for about the first 5 years after I discovered Metallica. The songs seemed dull and I'd get a headache after listening for more than 15 minutes. It's not something you'd listen on a happy sunny day, on the beach or at a party (a normal party, at least).

But everything you need to know about the album lies in its title, St Anger. Anger. I went through a time in my life when everything kept pis*ing me off more and more each day, for about half a year. One time, feeling frustrated about everything I have to do, I put St Anger on high volume and... I loved it. Somehow I connected with the music, the aggressive tone of the instruments and the vocals. It seemed right. During that period, St Anger was my favourite album, and though I barely ever listen to it nowadays, I still appreciate it highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars st anger has come! 17 July 2003
St anger is a great album and it shows that james hetfield and lars ulrich never run out of idea's. Yet again metallica have come up with a new style of heavy/thrash metal.
The vinyl its self is has a very good sound quality and has that vintage sound that you only get from a vinyl.
The title track "st anger" is an excellant peace of musiciamship, if you listen to it there are about five diffrent lines of lyrics. The songs invisable kid, shoot me again, frantic and my world also complimates the album. It's not metallica's finest album but it's far from disapointting. definetly worth getting, espiecally on vinyl.

5.0 out of 5 stars A different side to Metallica... 24 Jun 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Gone are the ballads, the guitar solos, the classical guitar intros of songs such as One and Blackened and the occasional country records you'll have heard in Load and ReLoad. This is a different kind of Metallica, from start to finish you are pounded with heavy riffs, strong vocals and ever changing time signatures, but these tracks are very different from those before 'The Black Album' and at times it does seem as though the band has taken a 'nu-metal' approach but in my opinion this doesn't weaken the album. Personally the title track would be my favourite, heavy yet emotional, followed by the uneasiness or Frantic and then The Unnamed Feeling. 'St. Anger' really is the perfect title for this album.

2.0 out of 5 stars Surprises and frustrates in equal measure 24 Feb 2004
Format:Audio CD
It has been a long wait for a new studio album. The rather toned down experimental efforts of the load/re-load sessions pleased many people but frustrated a great deal more. With Lars Ulrich's determinations that ‘tallica were back to the energy levels of the 80's (certainly proved by their resurgence in their tours) one might be have been forgiven for believing the hype. There is absolutely no doubting that St Anger is a beast of an album. It exudes a greasy-dark atmosphere, leaving a suitably bitter taste in the mouth, vitriolic in both its intensity and aural strip-down. So its heavy. Check. but does it cut the standard?
Opener "Frantic" effectively smashes you clean in the face in much the same way as classic track 1's "blackened" or "battery". A stuttering drum start rips straight into perhaps the simplest and most effective riff of the album followed closely by a growling Hetfield and a passable but melodic chorus. The song clocks in around the five minute mark making it almost the shortest song on the record. Unfortunately after such a promising opening the subsequent title track quickly encapsulates all that is not so good with the latest album. .A punky opening is quickly dispelled by Lars’ new metallic snare sound and obscure production, effectively killing out the rhythm guitar and leaving an off-form Hetfield rather stranded. References back to the old days through the lyrics (‘fuck it all and no regrets, I hit the lights on these dark sets’) unfortunately do not manage to bring back the oh-so-promised “kill’em all/ride” swing. In fact if anything, Metallica seem to miss Jason Newstead’s creativity as much as they did Burton's.

1.0 out of 5 stars A black mark on a fine CV 3 April 2007
Format:Audio CD
A midlife crisis, or did they just forget how to play their instruments? This is a poor record, in terms of production, lyrics and the music. It's not just that it's Metallica, and we judge them by a harsher criteria than most bands, this is a poor album for any band to release.

Having said that, it is unbelievable that this is the same band responsible for ''Master of Puppets'', ''Creeping Death'' and ''Enter Sandman'', etc. How can they be the same band that produced this?

Where to start? Boring riffs, inane lyrics, (and this from James Hetfield, one of the finest lyricists in metal), and the drumming! It sounds as if Lars recorded his drums on some pots and pans in a toilet cubicle.

Not just bad Metallica songs, but bad songs full stop. An insult to one of metal's finest names.

1.0 out of 5 stars St Anger Anger. 27 Aug 2008
Format:Audio CD
I have loved and followed the boys for years and it really hurts to write this. First time I put this on, I thought the CD player was broken.
This is basically just pants.
Handy tip. Get the +DVD edition watch that instead. Use the CD for a drinks coaster. Honestly cannot bear to listen to it again.

Living in hope that Death Magnetic can restore my interest because there are loads of new bands that are taking their place on my ipod.
Come on lads...!
