If this was produced better, it would be the best post-80s album they made.

      Holy shit this is a million times better than the original. What's the story behind the production of St. Anger anyways? How could they fuck up so bad?

        some kind of monster should be required viewing if you wanna listen to st anger. one of the best rockumentaries ever made, and it'll make you look at the album differently. go check it.

      If it was produced "better" it would sound completely flat and lifeless. Case in point: has none of the energy of the original. It's clinical and sterilised, the complete antithesis of trash metal.

      I actually liked Lars's trashcan snare clanks. It just needed to be turned way down in the mix.

    The Black Album is in such a weird position. It's easily their most overrated album by normies but it's underrated by all the hipster dipshits like OP who can't appreciate the minimal subtleties of songs like Sad But True and The God That Failed.

    I'm the weirdo who likes Lulu and Death Magnetic... I feel ya OP. I think my biggest complaint with this is the toy-drum sound. I like the songs here it's just recorded horribly. Granted, sonic tinkering is associated with metal on a whole and there is a place for it. But wow... that drum sound is the stuff of nightmares. Love Metallica regardless.

      death magnetic isn't terrible. it was the first "return to form" from metallica. a lot of the songs sounded like something that could have been off of black album or load 1. lulu on the other hand is indefensible

    Despite all that, it did have potential to be a cult classic. Too bad all the tumult surrounding the band at the time wasn't turned into anything other than a giant pile of shit.

    Imagine complaining about the St. Anger drums when the drums on AJFA sound way worse. The St. Anger's problem is overlong songs which have maybe one good idea in them, except the title track which is unironically one of Metallica's best songs

      This is a problem Metallica has had from their inception with a few exceptions here and there.

    it's supposed to sound rough. in the studio, they described their intent as a garage band recording their first demo, only that band in the garage in metallica. it almost acts as a prequel to kill 'em all (production-wise)

    people talk shit about the production on st anger, but then go say AJFA is their best work. the production on that album SUCKS. snare sounds like a sheet of paper, guitars sound thin, no bass, vocals get mogged out by cymbals being too loud. it was undoubtedly their best album as far as WRITING went, but the production is doo-doo.
