This album is a step below Load.

Metallica is a shadow of its former self.

James Hetfield's high pitched spoken vocals that suddenly shift into yodeling while trying to sound
heavy is laughable.

Lars is a lazy drummer. There is really nothing more to say. He is lazy in the studio and lazy live.
Who cares if your getting paid though right?

Trujillo's talents are wasted in this band. That said, there are no memorable bass lines by him on
the album. His backup vocals also suck live. He is no Jason Newsted.

Kirk Hammett cannot write memorable solos anymore. The two best solos on the album are from The Day
That Never Comes and Suicide & Redemption. Funny enough those are two of the best tracks on the
album. Kirk abuses wah pedal on every single solo because the creativity is gone. He also abuses
wah-wah live because he can't play his own solos anymore without making mistakes.

The worst thing about this album is the actual production. Compare it to the Guitar Hero tracks and
it's day and night. How could they screw up so bad? It's not even listenable.

Metallica has not released a good album in over 22 years. These last 4 releases had so much filler
and were a drastic change from their thrash metal roots.


this much was said by a guy named fozzie you guys.
chris jericho has never felt so proud

i used to really like it, but now i cant stand any song except the day and the unforgiven, both was some of my first metallica songs. its weird because some of my first metallica songs i now despise, but some are so nostalgic.

i think im kinda missing this album though, gonna try re-getting into some of the songs tonight

I hated this album from the first listen unfortunately. Twice through was pain enough for me.

The production on it is as underwhelming as it gets, sadly.

St. Anger sucked, but I can tell they were going for something (and failed), so at least props for that.
