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 ...

BBC Review

Tick tick tick tick tick tick tick tock...

Summer 2002.The Metallica camp is in chaos. Bassist Jason Newstead has departed under a heavy cloud. Singer/guitarist James Hetfield is in rehab. The future of the band that blueprinted modern Metal as we know it is in doubt...

Tick tick tick tick tick tick tick tock...

Summer 2003: Thanks to the gritted teeth of Lars Ulrich and Kirk Hammett, and the vision of producer Bob Rock, Metalllica return with one of the most awesome rock records of the decade.

From the punishing percussive assault of the title track to the all-out thrash of "My World" ('I don't even know what the question is...'), St. Anger demonstrates a return to form that could bring tears to the eyes of even the most hardened Metaller.

Bob Rock was clearly busy while Hetfield was 'recuperating'. Gone is the bombastic production that typified Metallica. In its place is an overall sound that's more akin to the raw and loose vibe prevalent on later Soundgarden and Alice In Chains cuts, with enough of a nod to johnnies-come-lately such as Amen to satisfy even the newest of Nu-Metal fans.

Some of the close vocal/guitar interplay might even have Steve Albini reaching for his copyright book such is the pared-down, right-up-in-your-FACE nature of the production on St. Anger.

Don't forget kids while Bros were storming the UK charts in 1985, the Lica were re-writing the Book of Modern Metal. Any nod on this record to any band that's come since is the aural equivalent of Metal Fencing Linkin Park might thrust, but Metallica parry and kill.

Don't waste their time. These are Veterans of the Rock Wars, and boy does it show. The animal rage Hetfield confronted during rehab is here for all to hear, backed up by the sonic storm of bandmates who, truth be told, actually wanted to kill him for flaking out on the best Metal band since Black Sabbath.

Metallica haven't sounded so good or mean since ...And Justice For All. St. Anger spanks the ass of Nu-Metal and sends it back to school. Metallica are the Daddies, and don't you ever doubt it baby. --Amy McAuliffe

1.0 out of 5 stars Even my psychosis agrees it sucks 26 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD
I suffer from psychosis and regularly hear Metallica tracks, amongst other things, in auditory hallucinations. However, even my psychosis - a condition over which I have no conscious control - has never once played a single second of this album to me.

Even my psychosis, which submits me to frequent horrifying visions and sounds, refuses to subject me to this.

I think that is pretty telling of its' quality as a piece of Metallica's discography.

1.0 out of 5 stars Washing Machine with a brick in it... 14 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album when it came out and its so bad that I think I never managed to listen to it all the way through in one go. The song writing is bad and songs are inconsistent in their structure. This is in particular the case with the tittle track which should be finished and then suddenly starts with a fast crashing around that sounds like a completely different song by a different band.

However the worst is the drum sound, leaving aside that Lars isn't a very outstanding drummer anyway (he is alright for what he is doing). Driving yesterday the title track St Anger was aired on Kerrang Radio (with people running the programs mainly being born past 1980 or even 1990 one can sort of forgive them but it shows that they can't tell apart proper Metal from New Metal or all this whining Pop Core anyway...) and hearing the drums I not only remembered that the snare drum is overly tight but that actually the whole drumming sounds like someone put a brick into a washing machine and switched it on.

2.0 out of 5 stars Metallica's slow motion:- car crash! 6 April 2014
By Agma
Format:Audio CD
It's quite hard to look at this album objectively being 11 years on. Admittedly, the dust has settled somewhat but it has become apparant that time has not been kinder to this Metallica own goal. St Anger is unquestionably the worst Metallica album released to-date. There are a few semi-gems here, though situated with all the mire around them:- Sweet Amber & The Unnamed Feeling" are the only half-enjoyable tracks of the album. Whilst many of the rest are just simply irritating, such as the critical annoyance of "Frantic, Dirty Window, My World & Purify" arguably all the surefire lowpoints.

The songwriting and musicianship is across the board:- very lazy and uninspired. The garage sound I think they were aiming for, sounds nothing like the results they might have got had they made an album in the same sort of vein as the excellent "I Disappear" single from they're MI2 soundtrack. The choruses and rhythms a-side are uninteresting and excruciatingly repetetive, Lars's apaulling drumming is both "tinny & echo'y" and thunderously ineffective. James spits out alot of venom during his convicted singing, but it isn't enough to save what's here.

Metallica's eye was off the ball here- and this album is still a mess over a decade later. In hindsight, 2 excellent songs are worth the two star rating but without them it would surely be a first class disaster.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful 22 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD
If this wasnt by Metallica, it wouldn't get a second listen. Awful sound, awful, repetitive songs, no guitar solos. The lowest of the low
