slightly offtopic, but I figured I'd give a negative review of the cd
I have every metallica cd from kill 'em all to S&M, and I love 'em all. Except St. Anger.
I definitely downloaded St. Anger, just to spite Metallica (Napster bad? k, I'll just IRC xdcc it then).
Generally, I do not like the album at all. It sounds like Linkin Park, or whoever else wails on their guitar, then sings softly, then wails again, then changes tempo, and then ends. Fuckt hat. If i want to hear guitars, I want a constant beat, thrashing metal goodness, a sweet solo, and then the end. AC/DC does this. This is why AC/DC still kicks your ass.
And lars? WTF is with the trash can lids for snare drums dude? *bassCLANGbassCLANGCLANGbassCLANG* *silence* *bassCLANGCLANGCLANGbass* sigh...
Tempo changes bother me. So does screaming. Stop screaming, James, your voice sucks enough already.
*goes back to listening to MAster of Puppets*
