If only they could do a song that kicks as much ass as “Harvester Of Sorrow”!!!! When “And Justice For All…” came out that was when really Bad Ass car stereos were starting to catch on in my home town. Harvester was one of THE SONGS (that and “Frayed Ends of Sanity”) you could just blast and no one would get pissed. I miss those MetallicA songs that just blast you away.
St. Anger was alright, but where oh where did my ‘tallica go?
Machine head realized something was amiss after releasing some big baskets of audioshat and churned out some awesome albums of late, you Metallica boys should be sat up and taking notes. I’d just like to add that i don’t consider myself anti ‘Tallica these days, but this disappoints me everytime, it’s like watching England drop out of the world cup time after time. Wheres the kicking of ass? Isn’t that what Metal is all about, the name metallica suggests ass kicking and 16 year old garage bands make the metallica of now look like pretty lame.
C’mon guys! You can do a LOT better..especially you James, if you are the so-called leader, be one! Seems you are too much of a follower of musical trends these days…Remember when YOU were the trendsetter ? Get back to that, alright?
I am looking forward to the new album and hopefully they will tour the u.k. Would be great if they play Wembley Stadium. The new song is o.k. will have to get use to it. But Metallica live are still rocking so lets give the new stuff a chance. Obviously it will take at least 5 or 6 good tracks to compete with past albums. :O>
Metallica will never be what they were when Cliff was alive, and there’s nothing wrong with that. James can sing a hell of a lot better since the black album. Everyone can hear the difference between pre and post 1991. James voice improved, but they lost some of their originality. I think the alcohol and freedom they had before they were superstars created better songs. Bob Rock changed them into a radio / studio band, and turned them into the 90’s band that lost a lot of die hard old-school fans.
My brother is WAYY more of a die hard metallica fan than I am, and he loves St. Anger. Personally, I think it had it’s moments, I prefer the new drum style. The lyrics suck and in my opinion, were the downfall of the album. Release St. Anger as an instrumental and I’ll buy it.
When you listen to “For Whom the Bell Tolls” you can feel the energy. When you listen to “One” you can feel the emotion, and be blown away buy the talent behind every instrument. When I listen to St. Anger, the energy isn’t there to me. With this new song, I don’t feel it either.
The first time I heard “Fuel” I thought Metallica was back. I liked ReLoad better than Load, but you saw a glimpse of the past when they put out Garage Inc, and they proved that they could still play with the same fire they used to have, now they just need to write like they used to.
Bottom line, Metallica has changed, if you prefer Puppets, then put it in your ipod, stfu, and accept the fact that Metallica is a different band now. You can thank, or curse, Bob Rock for that.
Ohh yeah, and, to you people like Metal Hater who have nothing to say other than “Metallica Sucks,” how did you find this thread? Shouldn’t you be watching american idol?
It seems to be the new trend, Metallica Sucks, You know what, this isn’t a place to vote, it’s not check yes or no, try expressing your opinion with a little bit of intellect. These people seem like lemmings to me, don’t they to you? They all follow each other off the cliff, and none of them stop to think about it first. They should all get in their BMW’s that their daddies bought them for barely receiving their high school diploma’s, and follow each other off a cliff.
I think Dennis Leary put it best when he said “Make sure you get your ENTIRE head in front of the shotgun, THANK YOU FOR CALLING!”
Just bought Kerrang mag and Remember Tomorrow is the only Metallica song on the tribute disc. I have listened to the track a number of times and it is now embedded in my mind. Bring on the album and the tour.:O))) Rock on Metallica
Not sure where you folks are from, or what ages you are….but there’s some shite being spoken. I can’t understand the hard core Metallica fans saying St Anger is shite……lads – sit and watch the DVD…..it’s something completely different to what they’ve done in their previous 3 albums – I think it’s fantastic. I’ve been a fan since first hearing Kill ’em all in 1985. I saw them (with Stiff Cliff) in Sept 1986 in Dublin, shortly before Cliff’s untimely death. I’m sick of listening to “new” fans spout on crap about St Anger etc – the hard core fans must appreciate that album. It’s rough, raw, loud, fast, aggressive….all the things the early stuff was…but no solos!!! Hammet wrote a solo for every song…and they decided to leave them out – how brave is that!!! Hope new album is as good as St Anger…..but without the tight snare sound, and with solos!!!!
you all need to quit bitching because if you don’t like it then don’t listen to it!i been a metallica fan since the dawn of my time there the frist band i remember that i ever heard and yes i was disapointed in st. anger but i lke it a little. its not as good as the frist few but i think there all good some alot better then others.most bands frist albums are better then there later stuff.it’s not like some one asking you to buy it
This sounds like James trying to imitate James. Almost like some karaoke dude. Nonetheless I love James and Metallica. Long live Clive! Ok im gonna smoke a joint and put on MOP for the 1234 time. I still have the cassette tape lol, a little worn. But kept down in my moms basement so it lasts.

The Bible tells us that Israel marched to songs in
the wilderness immediately after fleeing Egypt.
The Beatles (better known as The White Album) contained several of their most controversial lyrics.
Only a cat probably has more lives than this song and its lyrics have had.
I don’t agree totally with your post but I got to confess it’s one of the greatest I’ve come across. You just don’t discover this type of quality online anymore. I will be returning read more of the upcoming posts without a doubt.
