Metallica: St. Anger

Sound — 8
OK first of all people may say that this is Metalica's worst albumm... I agree but you can't compare all there albums with each other becauase 'Master Of Puppets', and 'Metallica' are in-fucking-possible to beat... there is only so much you can do with the eGBDAE tuning hense, why they tried somehting new and went for the drop D down a step, and in my opinion they pulled it off. The drums are a little wierd at times, and yes sometimes the guitar isn't quite the heavy Metallica riffs as we know, but as I said they tried something new...

Yes James is a lyrical god... and yes the lyrics on this album were not as good as some of Metallica's previous songs, Enter Sandman, Sanatarium, For Whom the Bells Toll, but, this is to any one out there who has said these lyrics are crap, I really would like to see you write over 100 songs and sitll come up with amazing lyrics, it's not do-able, off course there gunna run out of ideas at some point and I personally thought it'd be before 40 years of Metallcia running, so taking that in hand these lyrics are pretty fucking good...

Overall Impression — 10
Ok every has said this album is crap has said, 'I prefer the old Metallica'...'Why did they change there Style...' and shit like that, well why dont you just shut the fuck up and compare there album to recent bands albums like... Limp Bizkit... which in my opinion was the worse pile off shit ive ever seen in my life, Linkin Park, (Ok korn was pretty good), but any way Metallica make all of the other bands look like Pussy's no other band could do what Metallica have done, do you see Limp Bizkit making Nine albums + 4 CDs of live shit, or do you see Linkin Park on Mtv Icon... I don't think so... so next time you listen to Frantic, Saint Anger, or Some Kind Off Monster, just take that into consideration and you will see that Metallica are still what they always have been, A F--KING AMAZING BAND.... if you don't think so then F--K YOU!!!
